TopCar’s Mercedes GLE Coupe Inferno 4×4*2 Wants To Be A [email protected] Off-Roader

It’s impossible to say Mercedes and off-roader in the same phrase and not think about the G-Class. However, this story is not about the boxy-looking icon, but the GLE Coupe, which has been turned by TopCar into something, well… let’s just say ‘different’.

The tuned Merc is named the Inferno 4×4*2, as the Inferno 4×4 moniker was previously used on another GLE Coupe (among others).

So, what makes this one so special? That would be the blacked-out bumpers, removed grille, front winch, new side skirts, rear spare wheel carrier, roof rack with light bar and chunky off-road tires.

We’re sorry to disappoint you, but we have no idea whether the tuned SUV sports upgraded oily bits or if the interior has welcomed a rugged makeover because, according to the social media post, this is still a work in progress. Thus, we reckon they’re going to be some changes, though it wouldn’t be prudent to speculate on what they might actually be.

In all likelihood, this is the AMG variant of the GLE Coupe, which uses Merc’s “old” 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V8, that puts out 557 PS (550 hp / 410 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque in the standard model and 585 PS (576 hp / 430 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) in the S. In both cases, the unit is paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission. The most agile variant hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds (4.3 sec for the lesser version) and top speed can be lifted from 250 km/h (155 mph) to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the optional AMG Driver’s Package.

    Also as a plus thing that spare tire will block any one who could talegate. That can’t be a bad thing.

    Nice, but at the end of the day, its still unibody construction and looks like it’d have no articulation of note.
