Carbon Motors Removes All Plastic Bits from Mercedes G-Class’ Interior
Published August 28, 2016
Mercedes G-Class was created in the late 1970s to be used as a military vehicle at the order of Shah of Iran. Older versions of this luxury SUV are known for their recognizable design. Those who think that its a bit outdated are probably looking forward for the redesigned version. According to Mercedes officials, the new version of G-Series should appear on the roads no later than 2017. However, those who don’t want to wait will be happy to learn that Carbon Motors have upgraded its interior, while MD Commerce made a couple of changes from the outside.
Carbon Motors is an atelier that deals with car personalization. This company is always working on some interesting project and recently they’ve finished upgrading the interior of a Mercedes G-Class W463. They are famous for “declaring war on plastic”, which means that they remove all plastic bits from a car’s interior and replace them with parts made of other materials. The same was the case with the G-Class Mercedes, for which they made changes in the dashboard, door panels, and center console, all of which they covered in black leather.
Apart from leather, Carbon Motors also used Alcantara material for trim pieces, as well as carbon fiber. They used red stitching for diamond-quilted seats, which was handcrafted. Finally, they also fitted the car with noise isolation, which lets the driver to freely enjoy listening to loud music on the 500-watt hi-fi sound system.
When it comes to changes in the exterior, it was the job of a company called MD Commerce. Although they wanted to keep their job secret, it is obvious that they added LED headlights and a winch. On top of that, it seems that off-road tires are mounted on wheels. Finally, there have been probably some modifications done in the engine as well, as it would be a shame not to push this work of art to its maximum.
