The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen has always been a favorite amongst automobile customizers, delivering everything from the gold-wrapped versions often spotted during London’s supercar season with Middle East license plates to the sinister-looking Brabus models. However, Polish car customization brand Carlex Design has developed a truly unique G-Wagen that is guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes. Meet the G-Wagen Steampunk Edition, a customized AMG G63 that is decked out with bespoke leather interior, wood floor, and copper design elements to give it an over-the-top steampunk-themed look.
The limited-edition steampunk-themed G-Wagen is one of the most wicked customized versions of the uber-luxurious SUV. It sports a very eye-catching paint scheme of gloss black which is contrasted with hand-decorated copper elements.
The highlight of the customized G-Class is its handmade copper roof that is engraved by jewelers and designers with a gigantic artwork featuring steampunk motifs. Each of the 10 examples of the Steampunk Edition that will be made will feature a unique roof art.
Each of the 10 examples by Carlex Design will get a bespoke numbered plaque inside the cabin. According to the company, the conversion cost comes to about $350,000, which doesn’t include the $150,000 price tag of the AMG G63. That means you’ll have to shell out half a million dollars for a Steampunk Edition G-Wagen. Included in the cost is a leather-bound book decorated with gold emblems. It documents the entire conversion process. Carlex says there are still a few build slots available for grabs.
