Mercedes-Benz reveals the new GLS Grand Edition

As the rivalry between Volvo and Range Rover’s premium SUVs continue, Mercedes-Benz throws in the new GLS Grand Edition, a new trim option for its flagship three-row SUV model. The Grand Edition Euro-spec sport utility vehicle will be featuring brand new interior and exterior packages available for the GLS 350d, 400 and 500. The list consists of 20-inch alloys, several choices of colors for the body paint and a choice for leather lined interior.

To help draw the line between the standard GLS and this new level trim, Mercedes will be adding special GLS Grand Edition badges within the front end of the SUV. This will be placed next to the front wheel arches or on the side of the wings. The German marque will only make this available in Europe which will cost about $3,001 for the exterior and another $7,764 for the interior using the current exchange rates. In Germany, each package will be sold at €2,300 and € 5,950 respectively.

Nevertheless, the upgraded version will be offered with high end premium features such as the trim-exclusive porcelain and espresso brown cabin color motif and posh nappa leather seats with diamond quilt design and brown stitching. Its dashboard will likewise get the same leather material with light stripes and open-pore wood trims while the velour mats in espresso brown color are enhanced by the SUV’s special ambient light. On the outside, the 20-inch AMG-style black alloy wheels will be featuring ten-spoke design in high gloss finish.

Mansory reveals dark yet more powerful version of Mercedes-AMG GLS 63

Mansory is one of the aftermarket tuners that could turn a vehicle into an extreme creation. Its makeovers usually don’t only entail dramatic visual modifications but also include performance tweaks. Now, a Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 had such honor to receive one of Mansory’s extreme makeovers, and it looks menacingly splendid.

The Mercedes-AMG GLS63 is easily the S Class of the SUV world. In terms of power, luxury, spaciousness and even technology, the GLS63 could be considered as a dominant model. This is primarily why the GLS 63 premium performance SUV is one of the favorite vehicles that aftermarket tuners like to tweak. Brabus has already released its own turned version of the AMG GLS 63, the Brabus 850 XL. Now, it is Mansory’s turn to showcase its own interpretation of the AMG GLS 63.

Compared to the guise of a typical AMG GLS 63, the appearance of Mansory’s version simply looks more dominant and aggressive. Its more menacing looks aren’t just because of its dark finish, but also thanks to its wider body. Mansory widened the body of the AMG GLS 63 by 25 mm on the front and 40 mm on the rear. Moreover, the side skirts of this tweaked AMG GLS 63 were designed to lend the SUV lower yet more stretched looks.

Latvian carmaker Dartz offers ultra-lavish AMG GLS63-based Prombon Black Alligator

An SUV that is lavishly comfortable and has a practical nature. That is how we could describe the Mercedes-AMG GLS63. It is easily the S Class of the SUV segment, which makes it among the most generously luxurious utility vehicles in the world. When specified with available options, AMG GLS63 won’t lose easily to other premium seven-seater SUVs in the world, both in terms of luxury and sportiness. Even the price of the AMG GLS63 is already opulent, with a premium of around $30,000 over its Mercedes-Benz GLS550 sibling.

However, the luxurious character of a typical AMG GLS63 pales compared to a recent creation of notorious Latvian auto firm Dartz whose ancestor company was responsible for building luxurious coaches for Russian Tsars. Now, Dartz is continuing this legacy and its own notoriety by offering extra-luxurious creations, the latest of which is the 2017 Dartz Prombon Black Alligator that is based on the AMG GLS63.

Before you make any quick conclusions, this AMG GLS63-based work has been dubbed as the Prombon Black Alligator but it is not just about the looks. Yes, this bespoke creation – judging from the teaser image provided by Dartz – looks like a black alligator ready to pounce on its prey. However, that is not all. This Prombon Black Alligator actually uses alligator skin for its interior – including on its seats and on the steering wheel. Moreover, Dartz seems to be a fan of the “name it, we have it” business philosophy, as it also offers the use of materials derived from the skins of stingrays, sheep, ostriches, crocodiles, pythons and sharks. No wonder Dartz has gained so much notoriety.
