Mercedes G55 AMG is a superb vehicle with a certain charm you won’t find in any other car. But when you are the prince of Abu Dhabi, a regular G55 is no where near enough to phase you! So you order a one-of-a-kind version of the car to a highly prestigious tuner. That’s exactly what Sheikh Sultan Bin Rashed Al Nahyan has done. Meet the AS55K YAAS EDITION.
A.R.T AS55K YAAS EDITION is more than 100 hp more powerful than the standard G55. It is capable of 620 hp and 880 nm of torque. The braking package is also upgraded accordingly, at the front perforated 380 size brake disks and 8-piston brake calipers and at the rear, perforated 345 size brake disks and 4-piston brake calipers. So it accelerates as good as it accelerates!
Chrome and polished steel are used to decorate the outside of the vehicle, where many parts have also been changed. Front bumper is revised and comes with quit a lot of Xenon lights, there is also a new grille. AS55K also has three exhaust pipes on each side of the car instead of the standard two!
Inside of the car is tailored based on His Highness requests. Nappa leather upholstery with alcantara and golden carbon fiber triimin, and a new steering wheel covered with the same material give the cabin a whole new look and feel. Windows are also chrome tinted for maximum privacy.
So if you are not a member of royal family but you still want to have your own special edition vehicle, you just need to come down to Abu Dhabi, visit your favourite tuner’s branch here and place your order. But I cannot guarantee you get the same media attention as say the prince!
