Well. Okay then. What we are looking at today is a 2019 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG with some unique modifications. Some very unique modifications. As you can see, extra body work has been added along with some very wide wheels. The suspension has also been removed and replaced with an air bag system and modified control arms. Did I mention it rides on Toyo R888 tires? Let me try to make sense of this.

I understand modifying your vehicle, but this just seems ridiculous. I can not imagine how hard this thing rides, even on the airbag suspension. The wheels are 12″ and 13″ wide and are wrapped in Toyo R888 with a 30 series sidewall, which is a pure track-only racing slick. The width of the truck has also been enlarged another 8″ on both sides, which I can’t imagine is fun in tight spaces or even trying to park this thing. I just don’t get it. It’s not like you can take this back to stock in an afternoon or even put regular wheels and tires on it.
All this for an asking price of $250,000? The amount of people this appeals to is very slim, and probably almost all of them don’t have the resources to purchase a $250,000 vehicle that is useless to drive in a lot of situations. The things you see.
Well, that was negative. As a recent G purchaser I would have to say this is the other direction from most G owner desires. BUT, is this any more inconvienent than any high dollar super car? Will it stand out better?
Kelly, great summary. I expect the vast majority of US G’s never see dirt. If you can afford this you are looking to make a statement. In my mind an absolute waste but…..it does stand out. (For an enthusiast its …WTF?)
WTF is right! Why would somebody ever ruin a G-Wagen like this? I actually had an extra set of R888’s that I put on my SL500. Worst tires in the world! They sound like you’re driving on velcro. The BFG R1-S’s that a put on my C220? Quiet as any other good tire. Toyo tires are utter garbage. Whoever built this clearly just did it for “show.” I can only imagine how horrible this thing is to drive now. Yikes.
Also, what on earth are those fake vents doing in the rear bumper? Seriously?
Also Also, the longer you look at it, the worse it gets. Thanks for posting this monstrosity–I needed a laugh.
About as useful as the Urus…. well, you get the drift…
Also, not to be pedantic, but the R888 is not a racing slick. It’s a DOT approved semi-slick. Sorry! 🙂
Sweet. Does it come with a flat-brimmed hat in the armrest?
Scion called and wants its xB back.
It was in the Toyo Tires booth at the SEMA show a few years ago. Looks like it’s a tale of another “show piece” that makes very little sense (including financial). 🙁
