Carlex Design remodels the interior of this fierce Brabus G500 4x4² off-roader

Article by Christian A., on May 29, 2017

More than ever, the Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² is one of the most extremely capable off-roaders in the market. With its ultimate features, the G-Class is perhaps the only luxury vehicle that could practically take you anywhere off the beaten path. Those who are not fully satisfied with the standard model’s built-in power can always count on Brabus to lend a helping hand.

Engineered for extreme roads and jungles, it doesn’t surprise us if the G500 4x4² is also a favorite among aftermarket specialists. For anyone who wants an equally attractive interior cabin, they can call on Carlex Design to do the remodeling.

Speaking of which, a Brabus-tuned Mercedes G-Class has been taken to Carlex Design for an interior upgrade. As pictured here, the G500 4x4² comes with a bright yellow paint with contrasting black exterior accents.

Since this is the case, Carlex Design also wanted the off-roader’s lime body color to blend in perfectly with their new creation. The interior designer’s objective is not only to craft something sporty and modern but at the same time, the accents also have to go smoothly with the G500 4x4² exterior paintwork.

To start with, Carlex Design wrapped most of the interior surfaces with perforated Alcantara material with matching black leather inserts with perforated design. This includes the Alcantara wrapped steering wheel with black leather combination and contrasting yellow motif at the bottom. The dashboard panels on the other hand are mostly made with carbon fiber for a sportier take while the seats and doors were draped in perforated Alcantara and leather. To finish off the look, Carlex added a premium sound system to the yellow G500 4x4² courtesy of Pro Audio Tychy.

As per usual, a Brabus-tuned G500 4x4² or the Brabus G 500 is packed with a more potent 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine. With this new upgrade, the G-Class is now capable of sending up to 500hp (368kW) and 523lb-ft (723Nm) of torque at 5,600 rounds per minute to all four wheels. When fitted with all these elements, the off-roader gains enough power to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100kph) in just 6.9 seconds before topping off at 130mph (210 kilometers per hour).

Brabus also lets the driver adjust the ride height at each of the axle by selecting from its 4 different damper settings. By normal standards, the re-tuned 4x4 usually gets an electronically controllable suspension with all-aluminum adjustable struts from the aftermarket tuner.
