Mercedes-AMG G 63

The appearance of the G 63 has changed completely. However, under the cover is probably a production car.

Everything on Luxury equipment flew out of the car and was through one Cage, analog instruments and Safety nets replaced in front of the windows. At first glance, that too takes some getting used to Painting in matt white with light blue accents. Finally wait for the driver Formula 1 style steering wheel, a Fire extinguisher and probably upholstered in chic leather Bucket seats. Mercedes does not comment on technical details about the car. This suggests that nothing has changed about them. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing, after all, he has G 63 already 585 hp as standard.
