After building one of the most dignified Mercedes Benz G55Ks for the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi, A.R.T. has once again transformed the iconic Mercedes Benz into a muscular, super luxury SUV.
A.R.T. Tuning has developed a performance kit based on the AS55K YAAS Edition or the supercharged 5.5-liter V-8. The AS55K performance package will include a number of engine modifications including a new pulley set, a retuned engine management system, a complete six-pipe stainless steel exhaust system, and a large charge air cooler. This results in 593 hp and approximately 590 lb-ft. of torque, allowing the G Streetline to reach a top speed of 160 mph. Due to the brutal power increase the transmission required an optimized transmission control and new oil cooler system.
The unmistakable A.R.T. G Streetline Wide Body Kit gives the powerful SUV a stupefying appearance. Newly designed premium high bi-xenon dual main headlights are used in addition to a set of bumper integrated triple beam xenon headlamps and chrome covered LED multifunctional lamps. LED lighting does not stop at the front bumper, it is used in the fender extensions to illuminate the running boards, entry ledges on all five doors, in the brake light on the roof spoiler, and at the rear bumper to provide unique rear lighting. Non-illuminating bodywork includes a new aero hood, exclusive running boards, and six stainless steel exhaust tips featuring the A.R.T. logo. MonoART1 22-inch light alloy wheels are outfitted with 305/35R22 Pirelli Scorpio Assimetrico tires and complete the G Streetline’s unforgettable design.
A sumptuous Bordeaux red nappa leather graces the interior. Contrasting the rich leather are white seams with a white contrasting welt, while a dark contrast is applied to the ceiling. A new single seat system has been specially developed for the G Streetline and features electronic adjustability, heating, and ventilation. For passenger comfort a handcrafted center console with storage compartments lies between the individual seats. Because of a higher top speed a new 205 mph speedometer has been fitted and is embossed with the A.R.T. Mercedes and G Streetline logos. An ergonomic sports multifunction steering wheel has been fitted and is adorned in Bordeaux red leather and fine wood. The A.R.T. G Streetline has been fitted with ambient red lighting to create a warm interior atmosphere. Six red and black velour carpets with A.R.T. and G Streetline logos are laid throughout the foot compartments and trunk.
The special edition G Streetline is currently available through A.R.T. with the performance kit being available for export only.
