The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, facelifted this year, is a very individualistic choice of machine, but Stuttgart is now providing the opportunity to make the Geländewagen even more special, with a “designo manufaktur” range of personalisation options.

The designo individualisation programme includes individual equipment and appointments features, traditional craftsmanship and the highest quality. The Manufaktur hand-finishing section is located in Graz, Austria. Be it exterior or interior, topstitching or model badge, virtually every detail is crafted by hand, Mercedes says.

There are exclusive, unique colour and material compositions inside and out. The extended options range from eye-catching non-metallic paint finish such as fire opal and designo mauritius blue metallic, to the matte designo allanite grey magno and designo yellow olive magno. The G’s roof can be painted in obsidian black.

It’s fashionable these days, so customers can also choose from an extended line up of alloys painted in black. Inlays for the exterior side rub strips can be in carbon fibre look for AMG models, or black. The stainless steel ring for the spare wheel cover can be painted in black or body colour.

The Night package Merc offers on its passenger cars is now available for the G. With it, exterior mirror housings, flared wheel arches, bumpers and the roof are finished in obsidian black metallic, together with black exterior side rub strip inlays and rims. The Night package is supplemented by heat-insulating, dark-tinted glass from the B-pillar.

Inside, new additions include designo leather upholstery in the saddle brown, deep-sea blue, silk beige and mocha brown colours.

Topstitching on the seats, headrests, dashboard, door handles, armrests and handbrake lever are coordinated with the upholstery colours, highlighting the hand-finished concept and the new two-tone designo interiors. Mocha brown/black with topstitching in dark tobacco, or deep-sea blue/black with topstitching in deep-sea blue are available for the seats, dash, centre console and steering wheel.

For the AMG G63 and G65 models, the Dinamica interior package includes the AMG steering wheel in black nappa leather, with the grip area trimmed in Dinamica microfibre. Matching trim can be found on the seat and door centre panels along with the roof liner, seats, dashboard, door handles, armrest and handbrake with white stitching. Other interior details include red seat belts and leather grab handles.

Should be popular with the discerning, and rappers.
