Mansory Brings Us Another Wild Luxury G-Wagon

Hot on the heels of the puffy custom Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon by Moncler, the crew over at luxury vehicle customizer Mansory has taken their turn re-thinking Mercedes’ iconic box on wheels and decided two fewer doors would be a good way to go, along with an amazing white interior. They call it the Gronos Coupe EVO C. Note the “G.”

Seeing how Mansory has reskinned everything from Lamborghinis to golf carts to jet skis to riding lawnmowers over the years, we think they did a nice job on the Benz despite the groan-worthy moniker. That is if this kind of hyper-luxurious customization is your jam.

The most obvious change is the color, or colors, of the paint scheme, which Mansory dubs “Fludium paint chrome atmosphere” according to the car’s website, which also notes only eight units will be produced, but none will be exactly the same. Other tell-tale signs this isn’t your typical G include a greenhouse rethink which has resulted in the loss of two doors, while the remaining two entries now open “backward” from the original design. Mansory says the refit included a “great deal of technical and structural effort” to achieve, reportedly taking the better part of two years to complete.

Under the hood, the already powerful V8 has been pumped up to make 900 ponies and 1,200-newton meters of torque. Mansory rims wearing 24-inch 295-section tires transmit the power to the ground. Mash the pedal, and 60 mph arrives in about 3.5 seconds.

Inside, Mansory’s display EVO C sports a quilted virgin white leather interior trimmed with tan accents and gold-toned steering wheel controls and air vents. Please remove your shoes before getting in. Mansory branding is rather prominent.

Other bits include a rear spoiler for those triple-digit runs through the dunes and strips of yellow LED driving lights for blinding drivers of lesser vehicles. And yes, armored versions are available. Price? Not listed, and it will depend on options, of course, and the Mansory site says the Gronos Coupe will be produced for “hand-picked customers,” which we can assume is likely not most of us.
