Mercedes Carlex Steampunk Hero
Carlex Design
  • Polish car customizer Carlex Design developed a totally over-the-top, steampunk-themed G-Wagen called the Steampunk Edition. 
  • Carlex plans to build 10 of the SUVs, and said each one takes 5,200 hours to build. 
  • Each limited-edition G63 will feature a leather interior, wood floors, and a bespoke, hand-etched copper roof with steampunk-inspired designs. 
  • The conversion costs roughly $350,000, not including the price of the SUV itself. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Maintaining the same basic, boxy look for decades, the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen doesn't need much in the way of improvements. But that doesn't stop customizers — and occasionally the brand itself — from coming up with outlandish new takes on the time-honored SUV. 

One of the latest comes courtesy of Polish customization firm Carlex Design. The company developed a limited-run, steampunk-inspired G-Wagen that runs customers right around $500,000, when one factors in the roughly $350,000 conversion cost and the price of the SUV itself. 

The steampunk aesthetic gets its inspiration from 19th-century fashion and steam-powered machinery, so Carlex's G63 Steampunk Edition incorporates lots of leather, wood, copper accents, and handmade details. The most striking part of the SUV is an intricate, hand-etched copper roof that will be unique to each of the 10 Steampunk-Edition G63s built.

Polish customization company Carlex Design created a limited-run, steampunk-themed Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. And it's just as wild as it sounds.

"We are living in the era of mass production and plastic, where handcraft seems to be falling into oblivion," Carlex said in a press release.

"The G Steampunk Edition is a perfect choice for collectors fascinated with the art of jewelry, hand-craft, and fantasy."

Carlex based the model off of the Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV and sought to keep most of the exterior unchanged.

However, it did incorporate a stunning, handmade copper roof, "on which jewelers and designers engraved a gigantic relief with steampunk motifs."

2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 900 Rocket Edition by Brabus

Brabus G63 900 Rocket Edition Exterior

Believe it or not, Mercedes offers the AMG G63 in 37 different exterior shades! And yet, Brabus chose to offer it in two of its signature shades that aren’t a part of the manufacturer’s palette – Stealth Gray and Signature Black. Not that you don’t have black and silver in those 37 shades, but you get the point. That said, you can still choose to have it any other color.

The SUV comes with a whole lot of carbon fiber elements. Up front, the spoiler and RamAir intake grille are composed of it. At the rear, it’s the diffuser and the spoiler. The company has even made use of Widestar elements, which we’ve seen in the past, too. There are skirts at the front and rear for an aggressive look. The fender flares come with illuminated Brabus lettering. Even the running board caps and the Brabus logo on the grille are illuminated.

A lot of other elements are present that are finished in glossy carbon fiber. These include:

  • Hood attachment
  • Rear door cover
  • Wing mirror caps
  • Trim stripes
  • Door handles

Coming to its wheels and tires, the Brabus G63 Rocket Edition rides on 24-inch ‘Monoblock Platinum Edition Z’ forged wheels. They are finished in glossy black with red pinstripes. They are fitted with Aero Discs to aid the aerodynamics of the SUV’s boxy stature. The wheels are wrapped in 295/30 section tires at the front and thick, low-profile 355/25 section tires at the rear. Brabus has partnered with Continental, Pirelli, and Yokohama to provide the tires.

Brabus G63 900 Rocket Edition Interior

As is with any high-end aftermarket build, the interior customization is left to the customer’s taste and preference. In the images, the company has upholstered the SUV in Royal Black leather with stealth gray stitching. Almost every other component here is also swapped with Brabus elements. Stuff like carbon interior handles, shift paddles, door lock pins, ambient lighting, etc.

Three carbon packages are offered by Brabus, and they include three, five, and eight carbon fiber components, respectively. Nothing extraordinary here, but what caught our attention is the Shadow Gray package. This includes 206 stock elements being swapped with Brabus components. Talk about attention to detail!

Brabus G63 900 Rocket Edition Drivetrain

In the stock form, the Mercedes-AMG G63 comes with a 4.0-liter, Biturbo V-8 engine under the hood. It dishes out 577 horses and 627 pound-feet of twist. Power is routed to all the wheels via a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox. It takes 4.5 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from rest.

Instead of just offering a tune-up, the company has increased the engine’s displacement to 4.5 liters.

This includes:

  • 100 mm crankshaft
  • Eight special connecting rods
  • Eight forged pistons
  • Two special turbochargers with larger compressors
  • Two high-pressure fuel pumps
  • Booster pump
  • 80-mm downpipe
  • Catalyst system

All these things, coupled with a new ECU have prompted the engine to dish out 888 horses and 922 pound-feet of twist. This is an increase of 311 ponies and 295 pound-feet of oomph. The SUV now takes just 3.7 seconds to 62 mph from rest. The top speed is also increased to 174 mph.

Brabus G63 900 Rocket Edition Suspension and Exhaust System

Brabus has installed its RideControl aluminum coilover suspension system with electronically controlled dampers. It has lowered the stance by 1.8 inches. Even the brakes are changed, with the stopping duties now taken over by 15.75-inch steel vented rots at the front and 14.6-inch rotors at the rear.

It also features a new stainless steel exhaust system that comes with active controlled valves.
The tailpipes are finished in carbon. This makes sure the SUV roar like a lion when loose, but can also be tamed if need be. All this at the touch of a button. There’s also a Rocket Launch ambient lighting to further add to the drama.

Brabus G63 900 Rocket Edition Pricing

The Brabus 900 Rocket Edition starts at €480,059, which translates to approximately $571,000 as per the exchange rates at the time of penning this article.

This doesn’t include the taxes. To put things into perspective, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG G63 starts at $156,450 in the U.S.

Final Thoughts

This build is quite exclusive as the German aftermarket company will make only 25 examples of the Mercedes-AMG G63 900 Rocket Edition. Around 10 of these are slated for deliveries this year, and the rest of them sometime in 2022.

Brabus has so many G63 builds, and yet, there can’t be enough. Each one is unique in its own way. One of them was powered by a V-12 mill, and heck, we’ve even seen a pickup truck version of it in the form of the G-Class 800 Adventure. Also, this isn’t the first ‘Rocket Edition’ that the tuner has come up with. It’s been using this badge for decades now, and was recently even slapped on a GT63 S twist. That was, in fact, even more exclusive than this G63 900 Rocket Edition with just 10 examples being built.

Supashock Custom Suspension Build: Brabus G63 (G63 Traveller)

Whether you love or hate the custom creations from Mansory, there’s no denying the end-result is always distinctive. We’re used to seeing crazy Bentleys with bonkers color combinations, or Lamborghinis with crazy body kits, but we’ve never seen anything from Mansory quite like this. We’re not just talking about an armored-up Mercedes-AMG G63 either. We’ll explain that more in a bit.

First, let this sink in for a moment: a G-Class armored vehicle by Mansory. Who says protection for VIPs needs to be boring? All things considered, this G63 is one of the tamest Mansory upfits we’ve seen, and that goes for both the exterior as well as the interior. The tuning company advertises this simply as the G3 Armored on its website, and there isn’t much offered in the way of information, either. Presumably, there aren't many buyers seeking opulent armored vehicles, so Mansory offers a series of photos showing a properly badass G63 with a prompt to contact a dealer for help.

However, there is a video on YouTube (featured at the top of the article) that lists at least some info in its description. The body is finished in visible carbon fiber – a material not known for being particularly bulletproof – but there must be some serious reinforcement beneath. It offers VPAM4 or VPAM7 protection, which can stop handgun fire in its lowest format and 30-caliber rifle rounds in top trim. The video description also tells us the Mansory-kissed G63 gets a power upgrade to either 700 horsepower (522 kilowatts) or 800 hp ( 597 kW).

Unfortunately, that’s all the specific info we get. We’re left to scour Mansory’s photos for details, where we’re greeted with gobs of quilted leather on pretty much everything inside. That’s certainly a Mansory trademark, but the light tan / brown color combination is surprisingly modest. A push bar with integrated red-and-blues is seen up front, and it wouldn’t be Mansory without a carbon fiber body kit.

Here’s where it gets interesting. Mansory photos usually depict a fabulously extravagant machine in flashy colors, but included in this bundle are few shots of the build. Indeed, that carbon fiber body is backed with proper armor, as we see the G63’s bare interior with welded steel plates all over the place. The G63’s entire greenhouse is gutted for the conversion so yeah, we’ve never seen a Mansory vehicle like this.

How much does it cost to have an armor-plated, 800-hp, Mansory-modified G63 in your fleet? If you need to ask, there’s no possible way you could afford it.
