The Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4² is an off-road monster as it is. But this is what happens when Mansory and Forgiato join forces and worked on this motorized Gulliver.
Mercedes is preparing a facelifted G 500 4×4². But before the new one hits the road, the pre-facelift version is still a muse for tuning companies and digital artists.
As if this vehicle didn’t already have the ‘Look at me’ factor, the one we’re dealing with is yellow, one of the Crazy Color series shades.
This Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4² belongs to a customer in the Philippines. He handed his G over to Jworks Limited and got it like this. With Mansory tuning and Forgiato wheels. There are Mansory carbon fiber fender flares, a roof wing and there is a carbon fiber hood. Considering the characteristics of the lightweight material, the G 500 4×4² probably enjoys the effects of a strict diet for weight reduction.
The Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4² wears 24-inch Forgiato Massa-T forged alloy wheels in off-road tires. The FORGIATO lettering is all over them and they perfectly match the contrasting yellow-black color combo of the body.
Performance upgrade – very unlikely
Forgiato shared the photo without providing any details on performance upgrades. We shouldn’t expect the G 500 4×4² to run faster in these shoes.
Considering that it’s not exactly a sports car, but an off-road monster, such modifications would have been unnecessary anyway. Therefore it’s safe to assume that the model keeps the stock specs. There is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine under that almost-square hood. It delivers 422 PS (416 HP) and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft) of torque to both axles via a seven-speed automatic transmission. Those figures are enough for this colossus with 45-centimeter (almost 18-inch) ground clearance to roll from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 7.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
