The manic Merc receives a wild makeover.
While we're all busy fawning over the incredible new Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, it's worth remembering that the GT R Pro is still an incredible car. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 produces an impressive 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, which is good enough to lap the Nubrurgring in just 7:04.632. If that sounds like plenty of performance, maybe you'd consider spending some extra money on altering the looks of your German supercar. This is where Carlex Design comes in. The Polish tuning company is a big fan of making cars even more luxurious and OTT than when they left the factory and has given the Mustang GT and even a Nissan GT-R the custom treatment. Now, it's the AMG GT R Pro's turn.
Dubbed the Tattoo Edition, Carlex Design's latest creation is something completely different from the norm. It boasts a brushed bottle green exterior finish, presumably the result of an expensive vinyl wrap. To match the body, new brushed silver alloy wheels are fitted too. The overall look is intended to evoke the GT R's racing heritage and certainly makes the car stand out in a crowd even more than it already would. At this point, you may be wondering what tattoos have to do with this particular car, but it's the interior that shows off this car's inked connections with a completely custom cabin.
Deep green leather has been lavishly applied to the GT R Pro's cabin and mixed with black Alcantara. That green leather is applied across the dash, the top of the door cards, the center armrest, and the frame of each seat and is joined by matching bottle green seatbelts too. Pretty much every other surface is covered in Alcantara, including the steering wheel, which also bears Carlex Design's logo in place of the three-pointed star. What really makes this cabin special is that many of the panels and especially the seats feature intricate detailing with skulls and floral accents, emulating the style of old school tattoo art. Pricing hasn't been announced, but don't expect any bargains.
