This modified G-Class is bigger, wider, and more aggressive.
After giving the Lamborghini Urus an extreme new look, Romanian aftermarket company Marius Designhaus has unveiled its second tuning project based on the mighty Mercedes G-Class. Dubbed MD2, the modified G Wagon has been fitted with an aggressive body kit that gives the off-roader a meaner look.
At the front, the custom off-roader is fitted with a redesigned front bumper, paired with a protective splitter and carbon inserts in the air vents, along with new headlight covers designed to fit the wider fenders. A redesigned engine hood looks more imposing than the factory part and can be ordered as an add-on or a full hood.
Body extensions on the doors and back fenders of the car highlight the G Wagon's aggressive styling, while extended wheel arches give the SUV a wider stance. At the back, a new rear bumper is paired with a diffuser, a spare wheel cover with a Marius Designhaus logo, and a carbon insert between the rear lights.
The custom off-roader rides on 22-inch forged aluminum monoblock wheels available in a variety of sizes and finishes designed by the founder of Marius. "When I designed the wheels for the MD2, I wanted to create the sensation of unity between them and the body of the car. If the body-kit represents the 'clothes' of the car, the wheels should be the "shoes", and they must go perfectly together," said Marius Dumitrascu, founder of Marius Designhaus.
Other modifications include carbon inserts applied between the front doors, wheel arches, and front fenders, a carbon roof panel, and a massive carbon roof spoiler. A stylish two-tone black and silver paint job completes the exterior overhaul.
No modifications were made under the hood, but the G-Class is hardly underpowered. The Panamericana grille and side-exit exhausts indicate the MD2 project is based on the venerable Mercedes-AMG G63, which is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 577 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, paired with a nine-speed automatic. No pricing details were released, but the regular AMG G63 will set you back at least $156,450.
