Carlex Design has wowed us yet again.
The 2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 is a bit of an enigma in the auto industry. While it began as a stripped out, military off-roader, the G Wagon somehow morphed into a status symbol amongst the Hollywood elite and professional athletes. In AMG form, the G-Class produces 577 horsepower from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, yielding a 0-60 mph time of around 4.5 seconds. With a starting price of $156,450 combined with a lengthy waiting list, only important people get to drive a G63.
But if you do manage to nab a G63 and want yours to stand out, aftermarket tuner Carlex Design is now offering a new limited edition model called the G Yachting. This is not the first G-Class to be based on a boat, as Mercedes itself previously released the G63 Cigarette Edition with a matching Tirranna AMG Edition speedboat. But in our opinion, the Carlex Design G-Class is even more opulent.
Unlike some other tuners, Carlex has decided not to mess with the G-Wagen's rugged looks. Instead, the tuner has focused on offering lower body paint schemes (polar white or brushed silver) with an upper-body painted in satin black. Either of these two colors is then paired with the most unique styling feature, a brushed metal roof, which matches the 22-inch brushed alloy wheels.
Inside, the Mercedes G Yachting Limited Edition is offered with a choice of two interior colors. Buyers can choose between off-white leather with Alcantara or cognac leather with light accents. If we were able to choose between the two, we'd opt for the off-white for its sheer decadence.
The colors aren't the only elements Carlex has changed on the interior. The headliner, for instance, has been decorated with a glossy flower of the winds embroidery coupled with streaking lines across the cabin. Carlex has also wrapped the steering wheel with top quality leather and added wood covers, which match the wooden floor and link to the car's yachting inspiration. When you drive up to the yacht club in this G-Wagen, people will take notice.
