The Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4 has seen an amazing tune up and facelift from Masonry, a Swiss tuning company who have an apparent fondness of carbon fiber. Many of the G500’s components have been replaced with carbon fiber versions making this truck built like a bomb shelter and the look is pulled off fabulously.
This tuneup wasn’t just a makeover though, as various upgrades have given the G500 an extra 52 horsepower and 73 lb-ft of torque. The big secret to this upgrade was a fancy new Exhaust System that allowed the already powerful engine to breath better and function to its full potential.
Outlandish Swiss tuning company Mansory has applied its know-how to the Mercedes G500 4×4², making the standout off-roader even more conspicuous than before.
If you like carbon fibre, Mansory’s take on the G500 4×4² should be right up your alley.

There’s also carbon fibre door handles, exterior trim and taillamp covers.
Backing up the sporting looks is a lighter and louder sport exhaust system. The exhaust helps the G500 4×4²’s 4.0-litre BiTurbo V8 breath a bit better, resulting in an increase of 52hp and 73 lb-ft of torque for a total of 468hp and 522 lb-ft. Continue Reading
