Production is limited to just ten examples.
German tuners love pushing the Mercedes-AMG G63 to new extremes. A few days ago, Brabus unveiled the 900 Rocket, a modified Mercedes-AMG G63 with 900 hp dressed in a widebody kit. The result was one of the most extreme G63s ever made. If you want an absurdly fast G Wagon, you now have another option because Mansory has revealed a new G-Class-based super SUV called the Gronos.
While it has slightly less power than the Brabus 900 Rocket, it's much more exclusive. Brabus intends to build 25 examples of the 900 Rocket, whereas production of the Gronos is limited to only ten units. We also hope you like yellow because that's the only color option for this garish G63.
As part of the conversion, Mansory has fitted the G63 with a carbon-fiber roof-mounted spoiler, LED auxiliary roof lights, and wider wheel arches that make the G63 look more muscular and intimidating. Elsewhere, the Gronos features a carbon fiber vented hood finished in black providing a welcome contrast to the eye-bleeding yellow exterior, a custom bumper with auxiliary LED lights, and a new grille with horizontal instead of vertical slats. Even the spare wheel cover is clad in carbon fiber.
The yellow theme continues inside the extravagant cabin, which is trimmed in yellow leather with contrasting black accents covering the dashboard, seats, and steering wheel.
Under the hood, Mansory has massaged the G63's 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to produce an insane 850 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque - a massive improvement over the stock SUV's 577 hp and 627 lb-ft. With this extra grunt, the modified G63 will sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, making it one second faster off the line than the regular model. Top speed is capped at 155 mph, up from 149 mph in the standard SUV with the AMG Driver's Package equipped.
No pricing information is available but considering that a bone-stock AMG G63 will set you back $156,450, Mansory's 850-hp yellow monster will not be cheap.
