This individualisation range stands for tailor-made appointments, traditional workmanship and the highest quality. The new "designo manufaktur" Edition is available for the Mercedes‑Benz G 350 d and G 500 (combined fuel consumption: 12.3-9.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 289-261 g/km). An assortment of particularly high-quality appointments makes these G‑Class models particularly eye-catching: the numerous exterior features in black go extremely well with the three available paint finishes in designo magma red, designo mystic white and obsidian black.
The AMG 5‑spoke light-alloy wheels with 275/55 R 19 tyres are likewise in black, as are the inserts in the side rub strips. The three louvres of the radiator grille, the exterior mirrors and the spare wheel cover are also in obsidian black to round off the design. The interior of the G-Class designo manufaktur Edition has sporty highlights in black designo nappa leather with colour-coordinated red topstitching. The AMG Performance steering wheel has the same colour combination: the two-tone rim is in classic red/black.
A luxurious highlight is set by the trim in black designo piano lacquer, with the red designo seat belts forming a contrast. Black leather grab handles in the roof liner and the exclusive "designo manufaktur Edition" badge on the centre console round off this well-coordinated overall package. The two top models from Mercedes-AMG, the G 63 and the G 65 (combined fuel consumption: 17.0-13.8 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 397-322 g/km), are now available as the particularly high-quality Exclusive Edition. ■
