Mansory Offers Wide-Body Kit for Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Build your own Teutonic Tonka truck

It's hard to believe that the Mercedes-Benz G-class has been around for nearly 38 years. The boxy, tall, and top-heavy G-Wagen cuts an iconic stance from Beverly Hills to Baghdad. For those who covet the G500 4x4 Squared's massive fender flares, Mansory is now offering a wide-body kit and a performance boost for the G-Class.

The kit is made from carbon and carbon fiber bits. It includes fatter fender flares, door skins, and tricked-out bumpers. The latest kit can make the truck look like a Teutonic Tonka.

Owner Kourosh Mansory and his team also want to crank up what's beneath your carbon fiber hood bits. They tinkered with the AMG G63's twin-turbo V-8 and added a few choice racing parts. For starters, there's upgraded engine pistons, connecting rods, bearings, crankshaft, cylinder head, and a complete exhaust set for better sound.

Mansory claims to increase the G63's 563-hp engine to a mad 840 hp. Maximum torque is bumped up from 561 lb-ft of torque to an electronically limited 848 lb-ft of torque. Insane.

Inside, the G gets the usual in-house treatment by Mansory — dashboard, seats, headliner and carpet in leather, Alcantara, and "perfectly manufactured carbon."

Other optional upgrades include a lightweight hood, roof panel, and rear spoiler with lights. Door handles, rear view mirror, and headlight covers get the carbon fiber treatment as well. The A-pillar gets paneling in carbon too.

Wheels size can be upgraded from 21- to 23-inch mono-block cast alloy wheels. Mansory will install wider wheel arches to accommodate the tire size increase if desired.

The wide-body kit is available for the current G-Class, with versions for the G63, G65, G350, and G500. Prices start at $19,755 and go way up from there.
