“As soon as the Mercedes-Benz G-Class leaves the factory, it is already an impressive eye-catcher,” says Mansory. However, that hasn’t stopped the German car modification firm from introducing a new upgrade package for the long-serving SUV in G 63, G 65, G 350 and G 500 guises.

Aptly named G-Wide, it includes new front and rear bumpers, side skirts and most importantly, fender flares. All the items mentioned are fashioned from carbon-fibre, and help to add 40 mm to the vehicle’s standard width.

How much for this visual enhancement? Well, prices start at 18,900 euros (RM88,310) but can continue upwards if the “enthusiastic G-Class customer” opts to have more areas like the hood, roof, door handles, side mirror housing, headlight covers and A-pillars done up in carbon as well.

If that isn’t enough, a wide range of 21-, 22-, and 23-inch alloy wheels are available for customer’s to choose from. The car you see in the photos is wearing the largest mono-block cast wheels possible, shod with 305/35 section tyres.

Mansory hasn’t forgotten about the SUV’s interior either, and offers its customers a customisation programme, allowing them to restyle almost every aspect of the living space. The company promises “flawless top-quality Alcantara leather, and, of course, only perfectly-manufactured carbon.”

To further inflate that invoice, the company’s engine division can also improve the 5.5 litre biturbo V8 engine in the G 63 with new pistons, connecting rods, connecting rod bearings, crankshaft, cylinder head and many other features.

A newly-designed exhaust set helps to “exude the engine’s bewitching sound on the flanks and ensure superior performance data.” The result is an output of 840 hp/1,150 Nm, up from a “boring” 563 hp/760 Nm on the standard car.
