VATH V58G based on the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

A new exclusive package is offered by Vath Automobiltechnik, updating the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMGs' looks and performance. The German-based aftermarket specialist gave the Vath G55 a new, sleeker and unique exterior styling and it also got a power upgrade. After Vath's revisions, SUV is now able to deliver 680hp, which is 173hp than the basic model.

From its 5.5 liter V8 engine, the car now has 840 Nm (619 lb-ft) after Vath retrofitted the engine with a special intake manifold, complete outlet unit, coolers, as well as patented Vath fuel cooler. With these changes, the G55 is able to hit a top speed of 265 km/h (165 mph).

When it comes to styling, the G55 has an extensively modified front-end section, which features a restyled bonnet, a front spoiler with large air intakes, LED daytime running lamps and Xenon headlights.

At each side, we see two sport exhaust units that are placed under the chromed sills, in contrast with the deeply tinted windows. The Vath G55 also boasts of having the brand-new "Race Edition" foliation designed especially for the premium SUV.

The Vath G55 rides on 22-inch lightweight rims, covered in high-performance Yokohama tires (295/35R22). The car is also fitted with sport shock absorbers and adjustable ride height, lowering the car by up to 35 millimeters.

The interior features carbon applications, Alcantara covered steering wheel, leather upholstery and high-tech multimedia system.
