Hofele-Design has done a great job with its HG 63 Sport 'Moonbeam.'
Sadly, too many tuners nowadays are stuck in the old ways of attracting attention to their builds. They put on ugly wings that have no place being there or sometimes even ruin the car altogether. The Mercedes-AMG G63 is no exception, having been turned into a 6x6 by one tuner and into a box with nostrils by another. Fortunately, not all tuners are so insensitive to the SUVs styling, and Hofele-Design is one whose work we love. Its latest creation has been dubbed the HG 63, and we quite like the way this thing looks, especially in its "one-of-a-kind" matte Moonbeam Silver paint.
That stunning paint is offset by exposed matte carbon fiber elements and a unique front grille finished in Liquid Black Chrome. You also get massive 24-inch Hofele forged alloy wheels, but not all enhancements are visual alone. The rear doors have been made to open more than they normally would, while full-length electrically operated side steps also aid ingress and egress. The side steps are especially noteworthy as they incorporate the G63's side-exit exhaust, which moves with the steps and is ceramic-coated. Other upgrades include a valved exhaust system, but the true party piece of this vehicle is the cabin, which has been comprehensively updated.
The second row now incorporates a Hofele-built center console, giving rear passengers a pair of individual seats for more luxury and comfort. This console has a built-in control panel, storage bins, and a wireless charger. Rear legroom has been increased by almost four inches by moving the seats further back. Sure, this impacts cargo volume, but in a car with electrically adjustable rear seats that boast memory functions, heating, ventilation, and reclining, practicality isn't the first concern. Finished in Bengal Red Nappa leather and Alcantara, the interior is truly special and even includes lamb's wool rugs like you'd get in a Rolls-Royce. The cost for all this luxury? Approximately €300,000, or $353,300 in our money. Ouch.
