The UAE is certainly the world’s current center for over the top tuning and luxury motoring, so it is no surprise that ART Tuning revealed their G55 AMG Streetline at the recent Dubai Motor Show. The tuner started out with a performance upgrade that includes an ECU upgrade that also gives the gearbox crisper shifts and overrides the top speed limiter before ending the upgrade with a custom six tip stainless steel exhaust system. The hand built AMG engine now a total of 601 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque while the G-Wagen’s top speed goes up to 161 MPH.
The interior is finished with leather trim in bordeaux red with bright contrast stitching covereing every surface imaginable inside the highly modified G along with embossed logos and a set of velour carpets in black and red with hand stitched emblems. ART also added a multifunctional Sport Steering Wheel, that has been ergonomically designed with airbag and covered in more bordeaux red leather and noble wood. ART fitted a bit of red ambience lighting and a speedometer that reads all the way up to 330km/h.
The body kit includes a more aggressive front fascia with a total of ten xenon lit projectors and more LED driving lights then you can shake a stick at. The aero bonnet is vented and so are the fenders and wide arches. The running boards are dressed up with some stylish illuminated covers. The rear bumper is covered with multicolored LEDs while up top there is a more pronounced roof spoiler. However the most moemorable feature of the Streetline G55 is that the entry ledges for all five doors are illuminated with the ART logo.
Sitting next to the SLS AMG Desert Gold at the Dubai International Auto Show is special edition Mercedes Benz G55 AMG Kompressor called "Edition 79". Just like the golden gull wing, this factory custom G Wagon is exclusively destined for the Middle East market and makes a nostalgic reference to the Geländewagen’s origin back in 1979.
The "Edition 79" differentiates itself from ordinary G Class SUVs is a Designo Magno Alanite Grey finish and will come with a custom brush guard up front to ensure that nothing gets in your way, the sides are dressed up with strips of carbon fiber trim and to round out the "Edition 79" package a set of 19 inch AMG design lightweight alloy wheels finished in titanium. Very fitting with the special edition theme, Mercedes will only make 79 units of the limited edition G55.
The Mercedees Benz G Wagon celebrated it’s 30 anniversiry this year, and Hamann is celebrating by giving the Austrian military’s favorite fast attack vehicle a birthday present in the form of a complete makeover, both inside and out of this G55 AMG as well as under the hood. Owners can choose from either a mild 35 HP upgrade, or go all out with the HM 600 performance kit that beefs up the 5.4 Liter engine with a blower to produce 600 HP and 576 lb-ft of torque, and like we said before, can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 162 MPH. Pretty impressive for an all-terrain machine.
From the outside, Hamann has upgraded the Typhoon with an oversized grill, carbon fiber for the mirrors, door handles and fender vents. There is a new front spoiler that lowers the front end of the vehicle giving it a more sporty appearance, just like the rear wing. The most impressive features of the Typhoon are the rims, measuring in at 24 inches in diameter, not only are they huge, but the black offsets the cream exterior perfectly.
The interior has been recovered in plush red fabric on the door panels, headliner, armrests and seat inserts. The interior is further dressed up with a few carbon fiber trim pieces as well as a couple more red accents. Aside from the wild materials, for the most part, the Typhoon’s interior is exactly like it left the factory, the perfect compliment for any tuner. So if you feel like celebrating along with the boys at Hamann, give them a ring and see what they can do with your G wagon.

The supercharged V8 under the hood of the AS55K YAAS EDITION has been upgraded to produce 620 HP bringing power up to a majestic level.

Add the chromed tailpipes and window tint and this becomes one hard vehicle to ignore.
