Mercedes-Benz has officially pulled the wraps off the brand new G500 4×4 Concept, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in a premiere.
After it has been shown online just a few weeks back, the brand new Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4 Concept has finally made its public debut at the 2015th edition of the Geneva Motor Show. The mode l in question is coming with an upgraded suspension system, with two spring / damper struts per wheel, with portal axles, body enhancements such as the stainless steel underbody guards, the AMG front bumper or the carbon fiber flares, amongst others.
The one-off vehicle is believed to become a replacement for the six-wheeled G63 AMG which should retire soon, but this hasn’t been confirmed at the time. The model will not be adopting a whole extra axle for its production version but speaking about being greenlighted is actually in the shadows at the time because its future will be decided based on the feedback received by it.
The brand new Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4 Concept is packing in a significantly increased ride height, with a 450 mm ground clearance, just like its 6-wheeled brother, and it is riding on large 22-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in 325/55 tires. Power to it is being provided by a 4.0 liter V8 twin turbo engine, which is capable of producing a total of 422 HP (310 kW). More details on the G500 4×4 Concept are limited at this time and will probably be announced once the company will decide to put it into production.
