The title of this post took a while to get right. I blame the hands of AMG and Philip Plein for over-making the Benz G 55 into some thing which is a bit tough for my tastes (hence the massive title). Autoblog agrees. “While we aren’t necessarily against fully cladding a G55 in carbon fiber, our hesitation with the G-Couture is less about the concept and more about the execution. The front end particularly looks overly-styled, and the unpainted fibers seem more appropriate on a sports car. We can, however, appreciate the upgrades done underneath the hood. Mansory has boosted the supercharged V8 to 700 horsepower and 649 lb-ft torque. Necessary? Of course not, but impressive nonetheless.”
