Danger! There is an "update" for this post which contains new information (images, data, video). You will find the new information specially marked at the end of the article! The tuning team TopCar from Russia gave us a small preview of what you will soon be able to see at the Geneva Motor Show. They have published a modified Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe on their website that we of course want to show you. By the way, the Russian tuner is coming to the world's largest auto show with three models in the form of the one we already know Porsche 911 Stinger GTR (Type 991) and the Vantage 2 based on the Porsche Cayenne GTS

As far as the details of the optical or technical changes to the GLE are concerned, we have tried to find out some information for you and have found what we are looking for. However, we cannot say at the moment whether there are any changes. What we were able to find out and have recognized ourselves, we provide you in a small summary below. Since, as is well known, the "Forest for the trees does not see " It may well be that something has escaped us.
Should you have noticed any further modifications compared to the production model, then we would be happy if you write us the changes in the "comment box", we will then add them to the post as soon as possible. If you have more tuned vehicles like this one Porsche Carrera 4S Stinger or even one BMW X5 from Topcar just look at the photo hint below on the tuner name!
These are the details of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe 63 AMGs:
- Name: Inferno
- TopCar Bodykit (20 parts, new front and rear bumpers, grille including carbon inserts, bonnet, side skirts, fenders, spoiler lip, LED lights, bonnet, wheel arch extensions all around, inserts for the ventilation gills behind the fenders, rear spoiler, diffuser)
- red calipers
- black Mercedes emblem
- Inferno lettering at the rear
- Costs for the body kit 17.080 euros without carbon elements (with carbon 20.205 euros)
- unknown subtle lowering (sports springs, coil springs, sports suspension)

There is new information about the GLE Inferno which we can of course not withhold from you. The tuner already had his in mid-February "Inferno" called variant of the big SUV's presented and as you can see above, we have the fat coupe already shown with many pictures. Also the current Inferno version (has already been at the top of a virtual image) actually hardly stands out from the vehicles mentioned above. The most striking feature is the body kit that was not painted this time but is completely made of carbon. Specifically, this means that the front and rear bumper inserts, the radiator grille, the bonnet, the side skirts, the inserts in the fenders, the front spoiler lip, the ventilation gills in the rear bumper, the rear spoiler and the diffuser are made of carbon fiber and make the GLE even more aggressive to let. The body kit alone costs a good 20.000 euros. For the body kit, the tuner also installed a set of high-end LUMMA design alloy wheels in 22 inches that look very good on the GLE and optimally fill the wheel arches.

A few days ago, and in wintry conditions, the Russian tuner TopCar has now also equipped a GLE 350d Coupe with the complete Inferno Bodykit. Visually, of course, you can hardly see a difference to the big GLE63 AMG, but in financial terms there is, in my opinion, a decisive disadvantage. The vehicle is in fact for sale for 6,750,000 rubles, which is approximately 105.000 €, and if you want to own the 22 Custom LUMMA Design wheelset with then then just under 6.500 € due.
If you add up that comes out almost € 112.000, which is damn close to the € 115.251,50 for a GLE63 AMG Coupé! So what could be a reason to do an AMG-look with a 350d and not have the power of the 5,5-liter V8 biturbo engine available, but to pay almost the same purchase price? Difficult to justify, but not our problem in the end either ... 🙂 Have fun with the pictures of the TopCar Mercedes GLE 350d Coupé C292!
News from 24.04.2017/XNUMX/XNUMX
As already mentioned above, we discovered a Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe with INFERNO body kit in "Blue Gem". The body kit includes all components as with the vehicles above and is largely built in carbon fiber. Have fun with the new pictures!
Maybe there will soon be an update with information and pictures. If this is the case we will of course also put it online and inform you about it.
