Mansory G-Couture at Geneva
If there's one thing we can say about Mansory, it's that they sure aren't afraid to try new things. A pink Bentley? Sure. A blue and gold Rolls-Royce Ghost? Why not? Then there's this highly modified G55 AMG built in cooperation with fashion designer Philipp Plein named the G-Couture. With a production run of just seven examples, this heavily modified Benz will only be available to a limited few. Truthfully, it's probably better that way.
While we aren't necessarily against fully cladding a G55 in carbon fiber, our hesitation with the G-Couture is less about the concept and more about the execution. The front end particularly looks overly-styled, and the unpainted fibers seem more appropriate on a sports car. We can, however, appreciate the upgrades done underneath the hood. Mansory has Boosted the supercharged V8 to 700 horsepower and 649 lb-ft torque. Necessary? Of course not, but impressive nonetheless.

2013 Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG (SpyShots)
SpyShots of a new Mercedes-Benz.
The people at 3rabcars have managed to get up close and personal with the Mercedes G65 AMG.
Caught in Dubai, the model has a familiar design but is distinguished by an aggressive front bumper, new side mirrors and AMG wheels.
Inside, the cabin is significantly improved with a new instrument cluster (with a 320 km/h speedometer), center stack and steering wheel. Additionally, the revised center console has a new gear knob and a COMAND controller.
Under the hood, there appears to be a 6.0-liter bi-turbo V12 engine. It remains unclear how much it will produce, but previous reports have indicated it could develop 612 PS (450 kW / 604 hp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.
