So you’re the kind of person for whom a normal Mercedes-Benz G-Class just doesn’t cut the mustard… Sure, there’s an AMG version, but you really want to stand out in the crowd. Enter Project Kahn stage right, with yet another bedazzled variation on the flashy performance car theme.
Renowned the world over for developing modern variations of iconic high-powered vehicles, Project Kahn’s team has spent the last year developing what they refer to as a “comprehensive” new look for the iconic G-Class – they call it the Mercedes G Class Carbon Wide Track edition.
Talk about doing what the box (literally) says, the G Class Carbon Wide Track edition is both wide and festooned with carbon. It features widened front and rear wings, carbon bonnet overlay, lower bumper spoiler, front grille, rear roof spoiler and a roof shield. The pièce de resistance of any Kahn creation is of course the wheels, and the Mercedes G-Class Carbon Wide Track edition is no different with its Kahn Type 57 Monoblock forged wheels at 23-inches. Their design features simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a “purposeful mechanical centre.”
Continental SportContact 6 tyres are available as an option, and for those who would like a little more performance to go with their out-of-the-box looks, a crosshair exhaust system featuring 100 mml tailpipes is also available for added aural drama and a slight bump in performance.
“The Mercedes G-Class Carbon Wide Track edition is adorned with a plethora of styling enhancements that only Project Kahn can provide for our discerning clients,” said Afzal Kahn, Principal British Designer at Project Kahn.
The interior can be had in either Bengal Red of for the particularly discerning, a tailor made interior can be had.
Pricing varies vehicle to vehicle but the displayed vehicle is listed at £224 999 (approximately R4,7 million).
