Supercar Blonde Gives Us a Tour Of The Most Expensive Car In The World
Supercar Blonde has made it a habit of giving us the tour on some of the most epic cars and concepts ever created. Lately, this included quite a few legendary classics, and the one Supercar Blonde is showing us this time is arguably the ultimate – a Mercedes 300 SLR of which only two were made. And she even managed to get behind the wheel and drive it.
Remember Supercar Blondie? This is one of her rivals, 26-year-old Sophia Calate from Germany who’s amassed almost 43,000 followers on Instagram and now poses on a brand-new Mercedes G-Wagon powered by the 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, diesel. The result? An even better-looking Tirolean scenery.
The brand-new G-Class was unveiled last year and we all know it’s bigger than ever before while retaining the classic boxy appearance. But have you ever noticed how good it looks in cherry red parked on the Austrian snow next to a lake? As Sophia correctly points out in her Instagram post that has effortlessly collected over 4,000 likes, the name of the color is actually "Designo Hyazinthrot metallic," and it’s quite unusual for the G-Wagon, which is usually seen in funeral shades of silver or black.
The G350d is less bonkers that the V-8-engined AMG model although it still packs 283 horsepower and 442.5 pound-feet of torque, enough to send this block of metal from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.4 seconds and then on to a top speed of 123 mph. Inside, the G now has big screens on the dash and, in the middle, there are the controls for the faultless 9-speed transmission. You still, obviously, get three locking diffs which are very useful if you too want to tackle the Austrian mountainside this season.
Sophia asks in her post, "would you drive this as a Diesel?", and we’re passing this question down to you! Send your thoughts in the comments section below.
Inden Design is not your typical Mercedes-Benz tuner. Unlike Brabus or Carlsson, this small German tuning house rarely focuses on appearance. Sure, some of its vehicles feature a few nips and tucks and different wheels, but Inden’s modifying skills are more visible under the hood and in the suspension department.
Not surprising, the company’s most recent project, which is based on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, follows the same recipe. The sedan got wrapped, lowered and slammed on bigger, sexier wheels, while its engine had its output increased by nearly 30 percent.
Inden Design’s vehicle of choice is a C-Class fitted with the company’s sports grille, which comes with the traditional three-pointed star embedded in the grille. Up front, the sedan can be easily mistaken for a standard C-Class, with only the lip spoiler standing out through its gloss-black paint. On the regular model, the piece sports a body-color finish. Things are a tad different around back, where the AMG Line apron houses a set of exhaust pipes taken from the C63 AMG Black Series Coupe.
But wait, there’s more to this souped-up C-Class than just a new exhaust and front spoiler piece.

The Mercedes SLS AMG may have been replaced by the faster SLS AMG GT, but tuners are still having their way with the supercar. The latest tuning package is from Inden Design, and they’ve even included a beautiful young lady to the mix.
Inden Design didn’t play around too much with the design of the car, but they did add a new set of 21" light metal rims painted in high-gloss black. The only other change, and the biggest, is the engine modification. The tuner added a serially produced exhaust system in high-grade steel in non-ostentatious visual appearance with electronic valve control. As a result, the V8’s output has been increased from 571 to 623 HP, making it even more powerful than the SLS AMG GT.
Inden Design did add one more accessory piece to the exterior of the SLS AMG and that is the beautiful Katja Runiello (photo model, dancer, and actress). Katja’s dress was the inspiration for the package because it was created by Haute Couture designer Elvira Kirsch. Other glamour credits should be given to stylist Katharina Freitag and photo artist Olaf Pitzer from Nauroth.
