De Mercedes-Benz G-klasse mag wellicht hoogbejaard zijn, hij is nog lang niet dood. Sterker nog, hij is misschien wel levendiger dan ooit. Dat betekent dat er ook veel conversies op de markt zijn. De een is wat geslaagder dan de ander. De Prindiville Indomitable G heb ik nog niet in het echt kunnen aanschouwen, maar ik denk dat ik hem als ietwat over de top in kan schalen, afgaande op de foto’s. Bijgaand het persbericht:
Fresh from the studios of Prindiville Design (Prindiville’s coachbuilding division), comes the Indomitable G styling and performance enhancement package for the Mercedes-Benz G-wagen, creating an even more aggressive demeanour for the stunning G63 AMG.
The 30-piece body kit is handcrafted in military-grade large weave carbonfibre; buyers have the option of a matt or lacquered finish, plus a choice of colour-ways, weaves and patterns.
The lightweight carbonfibre kit comprises re-engineered front and rear bumpers, new front grille and headlight surrounds, wider wheel arches, bolder bonnet treatment, side skirts with an anti-slip coating on their upper surfaces, re-designed tail-lamp surrounds, and carbon replacements for the door handles, rubbing strips, door mirrors, induction vents and spare wheel cover.
In addition to the body styling enhancements, the Indomitable G is fitted with a set of six-spoke Prindiville Design alloy wheels, engineered for the weight of the vehicle, and uprated brake discs and calipers to cope with an extra 50bhp. The power hike is made possible by a remapped ECU and a Prindiville sports exhaust system; the automatic gearbox’s software is also recalibrated to take into account the performance boost. Further performance tuning is available, according the whim and budget of the customer.
The Prindiville Indomitable G’s cabin is retrimmed in high quality leather and Alcantara, although customers are invited to express their personal preferences for a wide range of optional upholstery finishes and colours, as well as a multitude of wood, carbonfibre and metal materials for other interior trim pieces.
While the Prindiville Indomitable G package is designed specifically for the G63 AMG, various elements of the kit can be applied to different models, enabling customers with older cars to refresh the appearance and performance of their existing cherished vehicle.
Completed new Prindiville Indomitable Gs are available – in limited numbers – from £250,000. Owners of existing cars are invited to call the Prindiville office on 020 7624 2911.
