Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² Laughs In The Face Of The New Model

Most enthusiasts wouldn’t change a thing on their Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4², and for good reasons: it looks great, drives great, has plenty of power and can go basically anywhere.

However, as capable it might be, some people will always want something a bit more exclusive. So, without further ado, meet the latest tuned G500 4×4².

Presented by Forgiato, it sits on a set of 24-inch Fratello-T wheels from the Terra Series. The gigantic rims can also be had in 22- and 26-inch, come in a selection of different colors and, in this case, they’re shod with 37-inch Toyo tires.

The modifications don’t end here; he rest of the potent off-roader had its exterior chrome trim deleted and sports a menacing black look, with exposed carbon fiber elements, tinted taillights and privacy windows all around.

It has a custom sound system, too, and an increased ground clearance. As a result, it can tackle more challenging terrains, but obviously loses some of its cornering abilities.

The vehicle was tuned by Creative Designs of Los Angeles and is owned by Oakland Raider’s offensive lineman, Donald Penn. The 35-year old man has a pretty impressive car collection, most of which “are customized to the teeth”, as Forgiato explains, so the G500 4×4² will be a nice match to the rest of his rides.

    Nope. The 24 inch wheels don’t look right. I’d opt for more aggressive off road tires though.

      This thing is a status symbol though, it’s barely going to see off-road even though it’s very capable.

    Can it be any more ugly and useless?
    Yes it can, yes it can.

    Love this truck if only for its capabilities. That said, the 24″ wheels are atrocious, please put the originals back on and throw those on Craigslist.

    I’m fairly convinced at this point that anyone with an expensive car just never runs plates. CA residents back me up?
