The latest Mercedes-Benz ML Widebody design from German Special Customs dramatically increases the road presence of this midsize SUV. From looking well below the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 in the styling stakes — to flexing its guns and eating Cayenne Turbo s for breakfast.
The Mercedes-Benz ML is a relatively unloved member of the range, albeit representing one of the biggest growth segments in the premium car industry. Even the butch square skid plates of the ML63 AMG are a still bit too Jurassic Park 3 for some people.
The German Special Customs upgrade includes a full fender extension kit, revised racing bumpers with deep air vanes and ducts for cooling, and air suspension to lower or raise the ride height on the standard 22-inch wheels.
A new hood brings a massive air duct ahead of the engine block, both venting excess air pressure from the engine compartment and looking very cool up close. The deep scoop looks exotic, almost like the Ford GT in how deep the hood cut-out is.
The exterior modifications are matched inside with Alcantara and embossed leather everywhere you look, but the engine itself is left alone.
Is this cosmetic kit the dream package for ML owners seeking more style from their luxury soft-roader?
