Apparently the AS55K is a model that was built specially at the request of the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi and it has as base the G55 AMG. Its performance was optimized and it now capable of developing 620 horsepower. The AS55K YAAS EDITION has very unusual exterior fittings and luxurious interior design and this is why it might be too difficult to find another one like it in the world. The comprehensive package of high-quality carbonized surfaces makes for individual highlights on the outer skin. The hood, aerodynamics components, he door handles, the spare wheel cover, the exterior mirror shells and the engine block have been generously coated in the luxurious material by hand to sparkle with a magical 3D effect. On the outside it has carbon parts that were developed and manufactured according to the wish of the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi. The dual polished stainless steel bumper with its profiled appearance provides the finishing touches to the smart solid appearance of the vehicle rear below the rear skirt. The high-performance brake system operates at the front with perforated 380 size brake discs and 8-piston brake calipers. The seats, instrument board, door cladding and center console have been covered in aromatic materials by hand. High-quality carpets with leather edging and ART embroidered logo round off the overall warm and luxurious ambience for that very special driving experience. All the covers on the instrument panel and doors have been given a high-quality carbon veneer. All these features are crowned by the gold-color carbonized multi-function steering wheel. ART specialists did a very good job with the new AS55K YAAS EDITION. More information will be revealed at a later date.
