Refined AMG G 63 in an exquisite OEM+ outfit
If you buy a Mercedes or even an AMG you can be assured of getting a highquality vehicle straight from the production line. The top German manufacturer is synonymous with good equipment, high-quality materials, and excellent workmanship. But nevertheless, some owners are not completely satisfied with the car as it is just off the line. If that’s the case, the team at SCHAWE Car Design step in to help: they are first and foremost specialists in refining the Stuttgart-based motors and always go about their work with incredible attention to detail.
Their core strength is retrofitting original components and additional modifications in an OEM style, meaning that SCHAWE can procure and install any configuration options that Mercedes offer off the line. This Mercedes AMG G 63 is an impressive example for first-class customizations carried out by SCHAWE Car Design.
The exterior is markedly different to how it looked on the production line due to a generous use of carbon, allowing the powerful off-road vehicle to significantly increase its premium value and exclusivity. Many of its parts are coated in mattefinish carbon, including the struts in the Panamericana radiator grille, the clips on the front bumper and rear apron, the front underride guard, the wing mirror housing, the door handles, and the bumper strips at the same height, typical of the G series, which also have matte black decorative strips. The spare wheel cover has a full carbon ring and – like the radiator grille – a SCHAWE company logo made from carbon fiber, a material that has proved very popular. Finishing highlights are attachments for the diffuser and the frames of the front indicators, also made from carbon and which on the G class have always been in a prominent position on top of the fenders, as well as a heated windshield and the matte black powder coating of the running boards.
And SCHAWE put just as much effort and devotion into the extensive individualization of the interior. Carbon plays an important role here too and is used to coat all wooden decorative parts as well as the frames around the ventilation nozzles. The SCHAWE steering wheel not only has a 12 o’clock mark, but is also partially made of the same popular lightweight material. And to perfectly top it all off, the wheel has shift paddles and buttons painted in a matte black finish – just like various other components of the center console, the dashboard and the door trims. Additionally, further surfaces are covered in Nappa leather or Mercedes’ own fine microfiber fabric Dinamica, which with its topstitching that perfectly matches the roof lining also covers the sun visors. The leather is also adorned with topstitching and is used on the airbag covers and the rear center console cover. It would be hard to imagine a more luxurious and handsome cockpit! And thanks to the multimedia system upgrade using a DVBT2-TV tuner, cinematic entertainment is guaranteed.
From a technical angle, a ceramic-coated rear muffler which is connected to the exhaust system rounds off the AMG modifications. And with a valve control system, SCHAWE provides an exciting engine roar in brawny homage to the power of the 585 hp-strong four liter V8 engine under the hood. Wheel spacers on the axles (10 mm at the front, 15 mm at the back) ensure an even more precise fit of the matte black AMG forged rims in 10x22” with high-sheen horns and 295/40 tires in their wheel cases, while behind these, the original highperformance braking system takes care of truly excellent deceleration values.
And last but not least, SCHAWE has even customized the car’s roof box to match the color of the vehicle, while its side holders have a matte black anodized finish.
Perfection down to the last detail!
