DMC Just Created A 880-HP G-Wagen Covered Completely In Carbon Fiber

Tuning

We're talking ostrich leather, folks.

When it comes to German tuning house DMC, we mostly see them working on Lamborghinis. That’s not a bad thing at all, as its tuned and modified Lambos are simply stunning. However, the Germans have now set their sights on the most German SUV ever made: the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. This body kit and tune job turns the G-Wagen into a performance god, which is perhaps why it has been dubbed “ZEUS.” We won’t even get into the whole Mansory rivalry as it’s kind of hard to follow.

So, what’s new here? Just about everything, actually. The widebody kit covers the SUV in full carbon fiber. It may not look like it, but that’s because DMC has painted a bunch of the bits. Here’s a brief walkaround video discussing what’s what.

We love the addition of the angles up front to this boxy design. Leaving the hood black to showcase the carbon fiber was also an awesome move. Slapping “DMC” onto the grille may piss off some who’d rather show off the signature Mercedes three-pointed star, but you can’t please everyone. The exposed carbon fiber roof is also a nice touch. The wing is just small enough to be inoffensive. Some of us around here aren’t big on massive wings. What we all agree on is big wheels are awesome! The DMC Zeus certainly delivers in that department, with 24-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion tires. Other exterior add-ons include a lighting system so bright DMC claims it “shocked people when we turned on all sets at the same time.”

In terms of performance, the power output has been tweaked to 880 horsepower. How did DMC do it? We’ll let the official blog post from the tuner do the talking. “Imagine that DMC took all pistons, connecting rods, bearings, crank shafts, crank, cylinder heads and more, back to the drawing board.” The interior is whatever you want it to be, with tons of carbon fiber throughout and options ranging from Alcantara to ostrich leather (seriously). Only 10 of these kits will be produced and the range of custom options and the fact that it can be fitted to any G-Class going all the way back to 1979 means that no two will be alike. (The example shown here is actually a G55 AMG.) Pricing has yet to be announced.
