2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class by German Special Customs

Article by Christian A., on September 25, 2013

German Special Customs has taken the “best car in the world“ – the Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- and gave it technical as well as aesthetic improvements. This title actually stems from 1975 when a famous German automobile magazine gave the recognition to the first official Mercedes Benz construction series termed “S-Class“ (W116), in particular the 450 SEL 6.9.

For the past 50 years, several S-Class generations have held the title. The latest model – the W222 – made its debut just a few weeks ago. German Special Customs, from Chemnitz in Saxony, has presented its own design of a re-sharpened W222 luxury limousine. The GSC modifications will be offered for all W222 variations such as the AMG versions.

The most stunning revisions on the German Special Customs S-Class include the bulky aprons on the fore and rear sides respectively. The GSC front spoiler bumper bar with integrated LED daylight running light bars appears to be meant on sucking in the air stream with its huge cooling air openings. The counterpart on the rear forms a frame on the trapezoidal end-pipes of the new sport exhaust system.

The smooth connecting links of the new bumper bars form relatively discreet side skirts which also include an optical sense of lowering. Even if the completely new GSC engine hood doesn’t anymore have the star, it still oozes power from its strong contours and integrated ventilation openings.

German Special Customs boosted the power of the W222 engine lineup. For example, upgrades to the Biturbo V8 Sports S63 AMG will result to an output of up to 850hp. German Special Customs will provide various XL wheel/tire combinations with diameters of up to 21 inches for the wheel houses of the W222 SClass.
