TOPCAR - Inferno Bodykit also on the Mercedes-Benz GLE W166

Reading time approx. 4 Minutes

After the C292 is before the W166! The motto of TOPCar could be something like that after the Russian tuner gave us that Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe "Inferno" presented in February, the body kit suitable for the SUV variant is now on the market. The SUV version can also optionally carry the body kit in full carbon or made of plastic. Those who opt for the carbon version are just now € 20.520 going on, but 23 modifications richer. The majority is estimated for the installation and painting, the tuner can cost a whopping 4.500 €. In addition, there are new front and rear bumpers (€ 6.500), a new bonnet (€ 3.500 -> made of carbon for € 4.950) or a rear diffuser for a slim € 2.500. The TOPCar team has released the Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 INFERNO W166 the days and we are of course pleased to be able to show you the first pictures of this project.

After the extremely comprehensive tuning cure (as well as on the Coupe) that the GLE was allowed to endure, it is now visually just as clearly changed, more individual and more dynamic than the production version, without being exaggerated or even overly conspicuous. Everything seems to be from one piece and Mercedes itself certainly couldn't have done it better. However, if you add the ADV.1 Wheels R23 wheelset installed here, you should pay more than for a new BMW 1er F20 116i and thus you expect this quality. So if you have been secretly thinking of buying a GLE SUV for a long time, or if you are already a happy owner, TOPCar is definitely an interesting starting point when it comes to differentiating the vehicle from the production model. And for all those who are not necessarily located near the tuner, we can say that of course all parts are delivered on request and can be installed by the local workshop.

Also this Mercedes GLE has received the complete TopCar aerodynamics package, including carbon fiber components, outside and especially the interior has also been modified quite noticeably here. The entire interior has been covered with two-tone nappa leather, luxury wood inlays and high-quality alcantara and stands out in particular for its color scheme in brown and light green.

And again we have one Mercedes Benz GLE (W167 SUV) this time discovers this as AMG 63S TopCar Carbon body kit had received. The highlight of this vehicle is definitely the paint in chic violet originally attributed to the Porsche catalog. Combined with the carbon fiber inferno body kit, the GLE is absolutely individual and of course anything but discreet. Again, the Inferno GLE stands on 22 inches big ADV.1 Wheels Alloy wheels and also in this vehicle, the interior is completely individualized.

Here, the Stuttgart-based driver takes the violet shade with him onto the dashboard or the seats and lets the completely refined cabin shine in perfect symbiosis with the exterior paintwork. Even the steering wheel has been redesigned and comes with carbon applications. Visually a typical "Russian combination" (eye-catching colors & combinations are popular in Russia) but in our opinion quite well done. Have fun with the new pictures!
