At the get go, the GLE 63 from Mercedes-Benz comes with a commanding appearance. This is true especially under the AMG style. Now here comes the TopCar version, called Inferno. There have been a number of takes on this mid-sized luxury crossover but with the Inferno package, TopCar has managed to come up with its own version of the GLE to give it a look that is more aggressive.
This aggressiveness is likely due to the fact that one look at this particular offering and it immediately brings to mind the Star Wars universe, particularly Stormtroopers or even Shoretroopers.
Russia-based tuning company had previously released a GLE Coupe with the Inferno where components of the exterior have been infused with carbon. Indeed, TopCar managed to put carbon fiber on each component of the body kit and all of these at a starting price of €20,205 ($22,580). These components include, among others, the bonnet, grille, side skirts, door handles, front bumper, rear diffuser, and trunk lid. TopCar is even offering to place a customized logo to replace the three-pointed star with a shark.
For those with something extra to spare, TopCar is offering enhancements not only on the exterior but even on the interior. These improvements are seen to complement everything done on the exterior. Among many improvements, these include perforated Nappa leather and carbon detailing.
The leather covering meanwhile follows a diamond pattern and is present not only on the seats’ middle section but can be seen on the armrest and a portion of the door panels.
In terms of performance though, TopCar did not mention any changes. However, the GLE 63 has an output of 123 HP (125 PS) with peak torque of 110 lb.-ft. (149 Nm). Meanwhile the GLE 63 S delivers output of 129 HP (131 PS) and top torque at 117 lb.-ft. (159 Nm).
