Mercedes G63 AMG by Special Customs

The Germans rule when it comes down to the auto industry. A German brand is more than enough when talking about perfection. But if we have two German companies that somehow meet together, we’ve got double trouble. This is the case with the German tuning company Special Customs that has developed a tuning program for the good old German SUV Mercedes G63 AMG.


The Mercedes G63 AMG has received a more aggressive body kit which contains new bumpers, a carbon fiber grille and LED daytime running lights. The SUV is also equipped with a set of 23-inches forged alloy wheels and it has been fitted with a variety of carbon fiber elements. If we were to talk about the inside of the vehicle, we won’t have too much to say because Special Customs didn’t change too many things. The vehicle only got two-tone leather seats, a carbon fiber trim and an updated speedometer that can go up to 320 km/h (199 mph).


The Mercedes G63 AMG is still powered by the classical twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine, except that now the engine has been upgraded by the specialists at Special Customs so that it can produce approximately 620 HP (456 kW) which is an increase of roughly 76 HP (55 kW). To help the engine be more powerful, an optimized ECU and a stainless steel sports exhaust system have also been placed on the vehicle. Although the SUV is neither a fuel-saving marvel, sophisticated in aerodynamics nor extremely luxurious or comfortable, it still has its fans, the people who love pure off-road features and who will invest in such a tuning kit.
