The Mercedes-Benz G-class it is perhaps one of the most customized luxury SUVs. Despite its boxy, old-school profile and off-road-oriented demeanor, plenty of tuners have invested in the on-road performance aspect of the G-Class, usually at the expense of off-road abilities. One such tuning company is Manhart, which has unveiled its new G800 Inferno kit, which will replace the previous G700 Inferno.

Great on road, probably sucks off road

The Manhart tuning kit is limited to high performance Mercedes-AMG G63 an option that already offers an insane 577-horsepower twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 straight from the factory. For this tune, Manhart upgraded its turbochargers, installed a new stainless steel exhaust system with valve control, upgraded the intercooler, installed a new air intake, and performed an ECU retune to allow the V-8 to produce a staggering 798 horsepower and 863 pound-feet of twist.

Like most other tuners, Manhart made the Mercedes-AMG G63 a bit better on the road and stripped it of its off-road abilities. That shouldn’t be too surprising, since most G-Class buyers won’t even be taking it to places that resemble a forest or tundra.

To achieve this look, Manhart enlisted the help of TopCar’s design for the SUV’s wide carbon fiber body, which is complemented by more aggressive front and rear bumper designs. Say goodbye to any off-road ambitions with this G63 thanks to lowered H&R springs and Manhart forged alloy wheels shod in low-profile tires. Topping it all off is the available black and gold color scheme, a hallmark of every Manhart-tuned car, as well as a roof-mounted spoiler.

Black and gold is the color of the day

As an optional package, the package can also extend to the interior, where Manhart will wrap surfaces in black and gold leather and/or suede. If this color combination is not to your liking, you can choose from a wide catalog of colors and materials. Then again, Mercedes-Benz also has its own customization program called designo, which is probably as diverse as what Manhart offers.
