Whole Lotta Carbon: TopCar Gives New Mercedes G-Class The Inferno Treatment

If you happen to own a new G-Class and are looking for something more spicy, TopCar can make it look more like the highly desirable AMG G63. And if carbon fiber is your thing, then it’s hard to say no to their Inferno body kit.

The lightweight material has been applied pretty much on every single panel: you can find it in the front and rear bumpers, doors, fenders, side sills, hood, roof – heck, even the tailgate-mounted spare wheel cover!

TopCar has also replaced the Merc’s original grille with a new one, which mimics the design of the modern G63, and replaced the traditional three-spoked star badge with their own. The shark logo is also visible on a number of different parts, including the front fender add-ons, side exhaust tips, rear wing and spare wheel cover. A couple of additional LED lights mounted on the roof, a matte green paint and a new wheel set, in 22 or 23 inches, round up the list of not-so-subtle upgrades.

The price for the new G-Class Inferno body kit starts at €19,083 ($21,573). The full kit adds the headlight protection cover, side roof panels, roof spoiler, additional LED lights, exhaust tips and shark logos, and costs €26,783 ($30,278). If you want the basic kit with visible carbon fiber, it’ll cost ya €24,750 ($27,980), whereas the full kit with visible carbon fiber and some other carbon parts, including the side mirror casings, costs €39,650 ($44,824). Steep, but you do get a lot of carbon fiber for your buck.

Installation and painting are an extra €6,500 ($7,348) for the basic or €7,500 ($8,479) for the full kit. Also, the engine bonnet in visible (!) or primed carbon fiber costs another €7,500 ($8,479) and €6,350 ($7,179), respectively, and the 23-inch wheels can be had at €7,700 ($8,705), or €1,000 ($1,131) more than the 22-inch ones.

TopCar will present the G-Class Inferno at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next month, but you can view it in great detail in the gallery right below.
