We’ve seen Hofele-Design’s work on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class—pretty amazing stuff there. Now we’re back with yet another Hofele special, and this time around, the German tuning marque has gone a bit further upmarket as it went bananas on the Mercedes-AMG G63.
Ladies and gents, meet the new HG 63, Hofele’s newest creation. No coach doors here, but it’s definitely one of the most exquisite setups we’ve seen on this beastly Merc. It sports a bespoke Moonbeam Silver exterior finish sprinkled with carbon elements. A grille wearing the Hofele badge and a ‘Liquid Black’ chrome finish is found up front, while 24-inch cross-spoke forged alloy wheels are fitted underneath.
As mentioned, there are no coach doors, but anyone wanting to enter the cabin will be greeted by Hofele’s electrically operated side steps that extend outward upon opening the vehicle’s doors. Nifty addition that’ll ensure easy ingress and egress of passengers.
The inside, meanwhile, is fitted with a plethora of ‘Bengal Red’ leather. There’s also an Alcantara headlining above, while below are rugs made of lamb’s wool. The highlight of the interior, though, is the seat layout.
There are VIP seats at the rear, with a full center console and a built-in control panel and wireless charging. These seats are power-adjustable and fully reclinable, and sports features like memory settings and heating or ventilation.
Thankfully, Hofele-Design didn’t try tweaking anything under the hood. The regular AMG G63 already packs a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine, which packs way, way more oomph than needed. What Hofele did change in this department is the exhaust—the HG 63 is fitted with a valve-controlled exhaust system that gives the SUV an even more glorious rumble.
The HG 63 will set you back about €300,000, or about P17 million in local currency. Do you think it’s worth the price tag?
