2015 Mercedes-Benz G550

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 2015 Mercedes-Benz G550, a single-owner example with a clean CarFax and just 9500 miles. But this is no ordinary Geländewagen -- it's been fitted with portal axles from Tibus Offroad to bring this G-Wagen to nearly the same specification as the G550 4x4² (the "four by four squared" gets the same portal axles from the factory as the legendary 6x6).

Portal axles provide an elegant solution that retains the stock suspension with no adverse effects on steering geometry, and all of the OEM electronic features including ABS and traction control work perfectly without any error codes or warning lights. The internal gearing of the axle compensates for the larger rolling diameter of the tires (35x12.50 Toyos on 20-inch wheels) so that power delivery is exactly as Mercedes intended. This technology comes with a high price -- around $25k installed -- but the end result is 100mm of lift without sacrificing ride, handling or performance characteristics. Click here for more information about these axles directly from the Tibus website.

The axle, wheel and tire combination also results in about an eight inch wider track, so custom fiberglass fender flares have been fitted along with custom-fabricated steel rock sliders (that also serve as a step for easier ingress and egress). To finish things off, a one-of-one custom winch bumper was also installed, but the factory parking and adaptive cruise control sensors were integrated into the new bumper so those systems work just as they should. A Warn 9.0 RC winch is mounted in the center. And in a nod to the ultra-exclusive Brabus versions of the G-Wagen, the exhaust exits each side just forward of the rear wheel. A well-regarded 4x4 shop completed these modifications per the owner's specification, and the workmanship is second to none -- the quality is such that it could have easily left the factory this way.

In terms of the truck's condition, both interior and exterior surfaces present as new (consistent with what you would expect for a sub-10k-mile vehicle). Aficionados of the modern G-Wagen, which is still hand-built in Graz, Austria, appreciate its unparalleled build quality. The doors, which close like a bank vault, plus the overall fit and finish remind this writer of the era when Mercedes built cars to a standard, not a price. Included with the sale are a set of four Tibus Offroad 18-inch beadlock wheels, new in their boxes.

This G550 is unstoppable off road, and the modifications also give it an aggressive stance and an incredible look -- all without compromising on-road comfort and performance. And the next owner gets a special vehicle with a spec very close to the new 4x4² but at half the cost.
