Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG

We don’t very often hear about Russians when it comes to the auto field. However, TopCar is a famous Russian company very active in the tuning field. The firm already got people familiar with high- tech products made up with master craftsmanship and some of the finest materials.  They now introduce a tuning program for the Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG.

Although the G-Class is neither a fuel-saving marvel, sophisticated in aerodynamics nor extremely luxurious or comfortable, it still is a never ending source of inspiration for the tuning companies. The off-roader has been involved recently in several programs developed by famous tuning firms. TopCar chose to work on a Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG which has already received a body kit from another well-known tuning brand, Mansory.  The kit includes a carbon fiber front spoiler and redesigned air intakes together with a special front grille and a vented hood.

TopCar decided to equip the Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG with some tinted windows, side vents and a Mansory wheel cover, and also additional LED lighting and a new set of matte grey alloys produced by ADV.1 Wheels. A clear carbon finish can be seen on some of the body elements while the rest of the car is covered in a gunmetal color. The SUV is powered by the V12 6.0-liter bi-turbo engine which develops 612 HP (450 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the German off-roader to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 5.3 seconds and to hit an electronically-limited speed of 143 mph (230 km/h). If you have the need to experience the feeling of driving a true off-roader, there couldn’t be a more appropriate one than the G65 AMG.
