Mercedes G-Wagen By Kahn Is a One-Off And It's For Sale

| |

We’ve become so used to Kahn Design’s relation with Land Rover, that seeing a Mercedes G-Class modified by the British tuner is a nice surprise.

Tuned G-Wagens come by the bucketload, so it’s kind of hard for a designer to come up with something fresh; Kahn’s own style, seen on so many Defenders over the years, apparently goes hand in hand with the Merc's boxy looks, as it’s rugged body-kit and accessories complement the vehicle’s presence with some added attitude.

Dubbed the “Military Edition”, this 2003 G55 AMG sits on G06 Diamond Cut and Shadow Chrome rims 9.5 x 22 inches in dimensions and its painted in a matte British-green hue that really emphasizes its “military” motif.

Kahn says this vehicle is a one-off creation built for a TV series, and although it looks made for conquering the trail (or any territory), it sports all the G-Class’ creature comforts such as electric seats, tan leather interior, electric everything and even park distance control.

The 5.5-litre, 500 hp off-roaded is offered for sale for the “hefty” price of £46,995 ($67,389). A little steep for a 13-year old car, but it does only have 41,600 miles (66,948 km) on the clock and Kahn’s visual touch. Plus, you'll never come across another one. What price absolute exclusivity?
