The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has enjoyed an unbroken journey of success since 1979, and now with the introduction of the new "designo manufaktur" individualisation programme, G-Class customers can now tailor the off-road icon to their own personal style.   

With its peerless characteristics, proven technology, unsurpassed driving comfort and standout personality, the G-Class stands in a distinct class of its own.  With "designo manufaktur", individualization is up to the imagination of the owner, enabling them to choose equipment and appointments features, unique and exclusive colour and material compositions inside and out, and a host of combination options. With the traditional craftsmanship and the highest quality for which Mercedes-Benz is renowned, the programme allows the off-roader to develop its own special character and unmistakable style.  

As a means of appreciation and recognition of its customers in the region, Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East has created four exclusive "designo manufaktur" Mercedes-AMG G 63 editions that will be available in the GCC only.. Each edition is finished with exclusive colours referenced by the region’s indigenous environment: Gulf Falcon, Blue Oryx, Red Cobra and Pearl Oyster, and limited to only 63 vehicles per edition, available for pre-order. With the purchase of each G-Class, customers will also receive “The Key Vault” – a customized box which will reflect the limited edition number of the vehicle (e.g. 1 of 63) and a special badge that can be placed on the body of the car to set it apart on the road.

“The G-Class is all about contrasts rather than contradictions. It is an accomplished blend of cross-country vehicle and luxury saloon. There is no entry-level here: style and comfort abound in every edition. The individualisation programme allows customers to make their G-Class as individual as their home. The limited editions will be highly welcomed by our discerning customers in the GCC as it offers them what they have always been looking for - the best or nothing,” said Lennart Mueller-Teut, Head of Marketing & Communications, Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East.

New exterior colours and extended options for wheels

Customers can also choose from an extended line-up of light-alloy wheels painted in black. A perfect addition comes in the shape of various inlays for the exterior side rub strips, and are available in carbon fibre look, and in black for the other variants. The overall look is rounded off with the stainless steel ring for the spare wheel cover, which can be painted either in black or in the body colour.

Popular Night Package now also available for the G-Class

The Night Package, which is familiar from many passenger car models and very popular among customers, is now also available for the G-Class. With striking design features in black, the Night Package underscores the expressive character of the G‑Class. Exterior mirror housings, flared wheel arches, bumpers and the roof are finished in obsidian black metallic. Furthermore, the inlays on the exterior side rub strip and the light-alloy wheels are painted in black. The Night Package is also supplemented by heat-insulating, dark-tinted glass.

designo manufaktur interior – the ultimate in individuality

The numerous options for individualising the interior perfectly match the expressive exterior. New additions include the designo leather upholstery in the colours saddle brown, deep-sea blue, silk beige and mocha brown.

The topstitching on the seats, head restraints, dashboard, door handles, armrests and handbrake lever are perfectly coordinated with the upholstery colours, thus underscoring the hand-finished concept as well as the new two-tone designo interiors. The colour combinations designo leather mocha brown / black with topstitching in dark tobacco, or designo leather deep-sea blue / black with topstitching in deep-sea blue are available for the seats, dashboard, centre console and steering wheel.

"designo manufaktur" offers an even sportier touch with the DINAMICA Interior package. This includes the AMG performance steering wheel in black nappa leather, with the grip area trimmed in DINAMICA microfibre, as well as the seat and door centre panels along with the roof liner, seats, head restraints, dashboard, door handles, armrest and handbrake with white topstitching.

Other interior details include the coloured seat belts in designo red and the leather-covered grab handles on the roof liner. In short, individuality virtually knows no bounds on-board the G-Class.
