Carlex Design got their hands, once again, on the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC. Now the luxury SUV is a vision in mint and subtle gold.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 breathes luxury through every pore from the moment it drives through the gates of the factory in Sindelfingen, Germany. It is the car that keeps with up Bentayga’s Bentley and with the Rolls-Royce-branded Cullinan. But when Carlex Design is involved, can the others keep up?
The Polish tuning house created the limited edition Maybach for the most demanding customers. And for those who dare show up in colors that turn heads. The two-tone Maybach-typical combo is still there. But it includes a shade that Mercedes never thought of introducing in the configurator. The lower section of the SUV is mint green. The image of the luxury SUV builds up on contrast. The massive alloy wheels come in 23 inches an display a golden shade that matches the vertical slats of the radiator grille and the side sills. The Carlex Design badge shows up on the front fenders.
The interior also breathes a fresh look with mint green all over. The seats are wrapped in perforated leather with a diamond pattern. There is the same shade on the steering wheel, dashboard, center console, and door panels. Meanwhile, the pillars and the headliner still wear black, thus bringing the outside them onboard the car.
No info on any engine tweaks. So we can only assume that the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 of the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 remained untouched. So those axles should still have to deal with 558 PS (550 HP) and 730 Nm (538 lb-ft) of torque. When the EQ Boost kicks in, the driver gets to enjoy the extra 22 PS (21 HP) and (250 Nm) 184 lb-ft.
Those figures are enough for a run from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). That’s enough bragging, isn’t it?
