With its powerful 544hp twin-turbocharged V8 motor, three driven axles and five differentials, the natural habitat of the Mercedes G63 6 x 6 lies far from city streets and country lanes. Mercedes-Benz themselves describe their six-wheeled G model as an uncompromising off-roader designed to overcome any challenge that nature and the weather can throw at it. Now, premier Mercedes tuner, Carlsson, are proud to present their unique interpretation of this extreme off-road machine, and their CG63 immediately impresses with its tougher appearance, uprated engine and customised interior.
The basis of this Carlsson dream machine, the G63 6 x 6 distills more than 30 years of off-road experience into a unique limited edition Mercedes-Benz G model. Its powerful engine and the special leather interior come from the AMG Performance Division, further underlining the G-Series models watchwords: Robust, functional, confident and assertive.
Carlsson’s motto is “The Best Way”, and this is both an incentive and a commitment for this company headquartered in Merzig, deep in the picturesque Saarland region of Southwest Germany. This is where Carlsson’s engineers developed the CK63 Performance Kit for the M157 bi-turbo V8 engine that powers this 3.85-ton behemoth.
The CK63 Performance Kit features an additional plug-and-play ECU between the factory unit and the motor that remaps the fuelling, ignition and boost on full throttle. As a result maximum power rises from the standard 400 kW/544 hp to 478 kW/650 hp, and is accompanied by a boost in peak torque from 760 to 900 Nm.
Carlsson’s in-house saddlery is a centre of automobile haute couture excellence, and is able to transform the cabin of any Mercedes model using Carlsson’s signature line leather and Alcantara, with trim inserts in wood or carbon-fibre. Any hue that is not available off the shelf can be specially ordered, so the only real limitation is the client’s imagination. The finishing touches for a special interior come in the form of floor mats made of soft suede or Merino sheepskin, stainless steel scuff plates bearing a blue illuminated Carlsson logo, and aluminium door-lock pins and foot-pedal pads.
