In German, Geländewagen means cross-country vehicle, but before any G-Wagen crosses any country, on-road or off, it has to cross the production line, and here it is doing just that for your Wallpaper Wednesday viewing pleasure.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in London, do as the Arabs do, especially where supercars are concerned.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Youtuber Shmee recently came across a Brabus 700, a tuned version of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6, in front of a London dealership. The one in the clip below is literally all wrapped up for a launch event in England before it’s shipped off to Miami to embark on the Gumball 3000 rally.
There are certain aftermarket companies that are known for their lack of restraint. After all, if you’re going to completely tear down a vehicle to customize it, why be subtle? Go big or go home. ICON, a Los-Angeles-based builder, did neither when it got its hands on a new Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG. It went to its fabrication shop, and then it tastefully dressed up the right-angled rig.
I’ve always found the Mercedes-Benz G-Class to be an attractive vehicle; its lines are straight and unapologetic.

No, the video you are about to see is fantasy because it shows an SUV as expensive as the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG ($135,700+) actually being driven off-road! Gasp!

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4MATIC is the third most expensive new car to insure in America, with a nationally averaged $3,019 per-year premium. Driving a Mercedes-Benz represents success and accomplishment, but even the richest people get irked at high insurance rates. If you are privileged enough to own a 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4MATIC, SLS AMG GT, G63 […]
For as long as the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Land Rover Range Rover have been staples in the high-end luxury SUV segment, you would think they have a lot in common. True, the G63 AMG and the Range Rover Supercharged in this test are both V8-powered, leather-lined rigs that kick ass off road. After that, […]
