Green T-rex with 850 hp / 1.200 Nm
A car that accelerates to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds, with a 285 km/h top speed is normally a sports car or super saloon. However, when these numbers relate to
2.6 tons of big and bold Mercedes G-Class, people sit up and take notice.
With 571 hp and 760 Nm from its M157 bi-turbo V8 engine the standard AMG G 63 on which POSAIDON base their G 63 RS 850 conversion is certainly no wimp.
However, the POSAIDON modifications of uprated intake and intercooling system, in-house upgraded turbochargers and stainless steel sport exhaust system with
sound damper control and free-flow sport catalytic converters realise a power increase to 850 hp. Torque and top speed are electronically limited to 1,200 Nm
and 285 km/h.
Optimisation with all the new hardware is carried out with bespoke remapping of the ECU protocols, and the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic gearbox also receives
uprated internals as well as a software remap to perfectly match the more powerful motor.
Such a significant power increase requires a commensurate improvement in chassis performance, and POSAIDON equips the G-chassis with an adaptive damping system featuring three possible settings.
Mechanical grip is enhanced with the fitment of 10.5x22-inch alloy wheels shod with 285/40R22 high performance tyres. These black Y-spoke wheels present a
stark contrast to the silky matt green wrapping and the big gold painted brake callipers behind them. The AMG S 63 high performance brake system adapted for
life on the G 63 RS 850 uses six-pot callipers clamping 420 mm carbon-ceramic discs in front, and 360 mm ceramic discs with four-pot callipers at the rear. The offroad character of the G-model was also underlined by a massive underrun protection.
The complete conversion of the former AMG G 63 AMG to the POSAIDON G 63 RS 850 has been approved by TÜV.
The special factory leather interior of this “Crazy Colour” special edition G features contrasting yellow seams and carbon-fibre trim. POSAIDON also offers their inhouse speed camera update, which integrates comfortably into the COMAND Online-System.
Also shown in one of our photos is the POSAIDON RS 830+ on a Mercedes-AMG GT R base - also glowing in green. This supercar emphasizes that POSAIDON can
also deliver up to 880 hp and 1,200 Nm from the "only" 4.0-liter sized successor model engine M177, which is also used in the G 63 top model of the new G-Class
