Say hello to Mansory's G500 4x4 Squared
Yep, it's another tuned Geländewagen. This time with (too) much carbon...
Like Brabus, Mansory will not be dissuaded from tuning-up and tricking-out cars that really, really do not require it. Like this Mercedes G500 4x4 Squared, which has been slathered with more carbon fibre than we think is entirely sensible. Or tasteful.
Most of Mansory’s work has gone into the front-end. The bonnet, headlight surrounds, grille and front apron are all CF. Moving along the side you’ll see carbon wheelarches, mirrors and doorhandles. Around the back, carbon adorns the rear lights and roof spoiler. Come to think of it – the whole roof looks like it’s made from the stuff.
Power is up by 62bhp and torque by 74lb ft (for a total of 478bhp and 524lb ft – less than that Brabus G from a couple of weeks ago) thanks to a Mansory ‘Powerbox’ remap and sports exhaust system. Inside there’s more carbon – on the steering wheel, dashboard, door pulls and handbrake – and swathes of quilted leather.
Price? A lot, we suspect. You can’t buy taste, etc…
