Only ten will be built.
If the standard Mercedes G-Class is somehow too restrained for you, the latest creation from German tuner Mansory will certainly attract attention wherever you go. After giving the Bentayga a 750-hp makeover, Mansory has unveiled its new wild take on the G-Class dubbed the "Viva Edition." Only ten examples are being built, so anyone who can afford one can brag about its rarity.
The first completed example is finished in two-tone black and white and is kitted out with an assortment of aggressive aero components. Everything from the new front and rear apron to the widened front wings and widened doors get the carbon fiber treatment.
One of the most striking exterior enhancements is the new lightweight hood with visible carbon and extra air intakes providing additional engine cooling. Additional daytime running lights trimmed in carbon fiber adorn both sides of the front apron along with two prominent LED lights mounted to the roof.
At the rear, the spare wheel is completely covered in carbon. Other carbon components contributing to the special-edition SUV's striking appearance include new door handle inserts, mirror housings and air outlets added to the rear bumper. Mansory's first completed Viva Edition rides on a set of 24-inch forged rims finished in black, wrapped in high-performance tires. The exterior modifications may seem excessive, but subtlety was never Mansory's specialty.
As standard, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 powering the Mercedes-AMG G63 generates 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. That's enough power to allow the G63 to sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds and max out at 149 mph with the AMG Driver's Package. By installing a new high-performance exhaust system, new twin pipes, and a new engine management system, Mansory has cranked up the power to 720 hp, while torque has increased to 737 lb-ft.
Inside, the interior features a new leather-carbon sports steering wheel, aluminum sports pedals, carbon trim, an Alcantara headliner, and leather seats with 3D embossing, which is also applied to the door inserts and center armrest. No pricing information has been revealed, but considering its exclusivity Mansory's new eye-catching creation won't be cheap. For reference, the regular Mercedes-AMG G63 will set you back $156,450.
