Mansory brilliantly recreates the Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4 Squared

Article by Christian A., on August 8, 2016

When Mercedes-Benz first introduced the G500 4x4 squared, the encore version of the awesome G-Class 6x6, not everyone was pleased with it. Don’t get us wrong, the car stands out from all other vehicles in its class and is as wild as it can be but buyers were expecting more. Actually, people expected that a G63 AMG version would be released, a more powerful and expensive option than the standard 4x4 squared. As they say, you just can’t get all the good stuff, right?

Now enter Mansory, an auto tuner based in Germany. Mansory is known for uniquely recreating some of the most badass vehicles that have ever walked (or ran) the face of the Earth. They are the brains behind batshit crazily tuned vehicles such as a Gold and Green Rolls-Royce Ghost that looks like something built in Oz, a Bentley Continental GT in contrasting burnt chrome orange wrap and exposed black carbon with matching interiors, and a sexy Mansory Ferrari F12 La Revoluzione in delicious candy colored Revolution Red with exposed carbon weave, a vehicle perfect for the Daredevil. But the “badass-ery” isn’t just on its appearance. Apparently, the German auto tuner has what it takes to create an already powerful vehicle into something extraordinary.

In addition to the growing number of outrageous vehicles (in a good and eye-popping way), Mansory took to their loony workspace the recreation of the Mercedes Benz G500 4x4 squared. The 4x4 squared had to undergo extensive upgrades from a new grille to even cooler LED running lights, some bespoke headlight housings, mirrors, wheel arches and door handles all made of carbon fiber. Even the roof and rear trim were not spared from the reconstruction as all are made of the same lightweight material. Its interior has also been redecorated so that its dashboard, door trims, steering wheel and handbrake were all made of carbon fiber. To provide a more aesthetic value to the interior, the seats were quilted and the stitching matches the color of the exterior paint job.

Mansory also added some beefiness into the 4x4 squared to help it climb through steep hills and over tough terrain. Positioned underneath the rear portion of the running boards is a rectangular sports exhaust that was added into the vehicle to help the vehicle conquer difficult terrains. Another addition is a “Powerbox” unit that unlocked an extra 62 horsepower to its standard 416 horsepower and an extra 73 lb.ft. of torque (for a total of 523 lb.-ft.). All these upgrades have seriously made this vehicle an off-road beast.

From the looks of it, Mansory did another good job in giving this Mercedes Benz G500 4x4 squared some extra kick to ride through difficult terrains. Hopefully, the German automaker sees this as an opportunity to improve their standard 4x4 squared. You’ll never know, maybe somewhere in the near future, they change their mind and offer a G63 AMG version. For now, let’s just appreciate and bask in the glory of this Mansory-tuned off-road monster.
