Mercedes G-Class

Mercedes has announced that the BlueTEC technology will also be available for the latest version of the G-Class family, which, incidentally, is celebrating its 31st anniversary.

The Mercedes-Benz G 350 BlueTEC will be powered by a V6 diesel engine that delivers a total of 210 horsepower at 3400 rpm and a torque of 540 Nm between 1600 and 2400 rpm.

Developed by Mercedes, the BlueTEC is a revolutionary technology that is designed to reduce diesel vehicle emissions, especially nitrogen oxide emissions.

As far as the technology that lies in the G 350, the BlueTEC version in the car uses AdBlue®, an aqueous urea solution which is injected into the exhaust-gas stream. This process, in turn, releases ammonia, which converts up to 80 percent of the nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrogen and water by a process of reduction in the downstream SCR catalytic converter.

Since the G-Class has been known to drive in some pretty inhabited areas around the world, Mercedes engineers made things a little easier for those driving the G350 BlueTEC by integrating the filler cap in the vehicle’s outside tank recess. Also of importance is that a full tank of the AdBlue can last for around 12,000 kilometers.

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.

That is because one of their lucky members recently received this exclusive Yaas Edition Mercedes Benz G55 AMG , customized by ART for his highness prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Sultan Bin Rashed Al Nahyan.

The tuners added lots of bold new bodywork made mainly of the lightweight exotic material, carbon fiber. The wavy black stuff is what makes up the bonnet, side mirrors, door handles and spare wheel cover while the inside is adorned with gold accents and the utmost quality upholstery.
