Three years ago, Top Car Design introduced their Mercedes-AMG G63 tuning kit called the Inferno, and now Manhart has taken their carbon fiber body kit and added a number of mechanical improvements to it. This is how the G 800 Inferno came about.
When you think of the G-Class, the first tuner that comes to mind is definitely Brabus. Although a number of companies, including Mansory, showed their varying degrees of original versions of the iconic SUV. Now black and gold Manhart wants to get its share of the pie with the G 800 Inferno, a more powerful version of the 2019 G 700 Inferno.
Top Car’s carbon fiber kit initially includes larger fender flares, more aggressive bumpers, a ventilated hood, roof LEDs, a diffuser and a sports car-style rear wing. Manhart has added its signature set of gold decals, traditionally contrasting with black, and continues this theme in the interior, upholstered in Alcantara and perforated leather.
The tuner has also tweaked AMG’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with new software and “improved turbocharging”, resulting in an impressive 798bhp of power output. With. and a torque of 1,170 Nm. These numbers are significantly different from the standard G63, which is rated at 577 hp. With. and 849 Nm of torque. In addition, there is a new exhaust system made of stainless steel and without catalytic converters.
Manhart hasn’t announced a price for its G63, but has released a number of exterior and interior photos showing the tuned version. Those interested can contact the tuner and order a custom conversion of their SUV, but keep in mind that Mercedes-AMG will soon introduce an updated version of its G-Class, with minor visual and technological changes. So it might not be worth the hassle.
