This vehicle is a truly unique production build, with new hammer formed front wings inspired by the 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa complemented with floating buttresses, remodelled headlight apertures referencing the 2019 Ferrari Monza SP2, front grille, front driving lights and a front bumper.

Detailed subtle changes include Ferrari branding, exhaust tips and forged wheels in Anthracite finish to match the Grand Edition livery which is inspired by both Ferrari’s past and present.

Afzal Kahn and his team have developed a comprehensive new look for the German classic, creating the Mercedes G Class Carbon Wide Track edition.  

A stunning combination of a carbon bonnet overlay, lower bumper spoiler, front grille, rear roof spoiler and roof shield enhances the aggressive silhouette of the vehicle. With simple clean lines, soft organic surfaces on the edge of the spoke and a purposeful mechanical centre, the Kahn Type 57 wheels are synonymous with elegance and innovation. 

An optional crosshair exhaust system (100 mill tailpipes) in addition to our SportContact™ 6 tyres improves on-road handling precision, comfort and driving stability, thus ensuring excellent ground clearance and good axle articulation. The tyres Black Chili technology ensures maximum grip in all directions and enables a supreme driving experience.
