More power and fun of ride has VAETH for the rare G55 AMG model. A G-class model with 680 hp and 840 Nm! Is it possible? VAETH AUTOMOBILTECHNIK has made G55, a model of an absolute force. The G-class model charms with its edged lines and its sports and athletic appearance. Also in this case, the VAETH AUTOMOBILTECHNIK creators have implemented a lot of new ideas.

Attention is drawn especially to the modifications of the front section. The bonnet and the front spoiler with extra big air intakes, LED daylight lamps and Xenon units in the fog-lights contribute to a sportive, eye-catching design of a strong V58k G-class model. The rear looks bulky and forms together with the sports exhaust system visible on both sides a perfect symbiosis. Sports appearance created by the VAETH is powered additionally by the complete “Race Edition” foliation.

Fully lowered by 35 mm, the G-class model together with its sports shock absorbers grant you a real feeling. The extravagant VAETH light metal rims in 10x22’’ with 295/35R22 Yokohama ADV ST air tires underline the sportive power packet once more.

The interior is decorated by carbon applications, there is a speedometer reaching up to 330 km/h, an Alcantara covered sports steering wheel and everything is covered by the leather. The multimedia system tops the ensemble.

In order to stop the hp monster at one time or another, VAETH has equipped it by a sports braking system with 390 mm sports brake disks.

Well, I was impressed with the speed performance of this car! And I think 800 hp is quite excessive for this version. However, I like the detailing of the newer model of Mercedes G-Class.

hmm. I guess, Mercedes is trying to make new face for SUV. This version seems to be like a box type although I think it would be a reliable car. BTW, I wonder what are the other features offer in this car.

still the best remaining engine from Mercedes besides the SLR’s 5.5. It just isn’t as good without the supercharger that came with almost every V8 its all American style big bore engines with no forced induction. smiley I hate Mercedes but the one that really cant be ignored (in my opinion) was the SL55.

To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time. When the world was powered by the black fuel. And the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now, swept away. For reasons long forgotten, two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing

Yeah, no offend but IMO the Hummer looks better compare to this one. But though there car were so AMAZING!

oh! Sorry for my ignorance but I didn’t know that Mercedes also produce a truck. But based from what I have read the last time. America’s make a campaign to save the Hummer truck! So what’s the point of the production?

I love everything about Mercedes-Benz. This model looks like a hummer. With a 5.5-liter, supercharged V8 developing 469 hp and 516 lb·ft of torque.

Lol. 330 kilometers per hour will really be impressive for this kind of car. I mean, I don’t think that this kind of SUV is built for speed but for accessibility and utility uses.

I really don’t know why the price of G-class MB still high eventhough it’s almost 15yrs now.

Old type of SUV but once Vath get their hands on this for sure it will reborn.
