G500 Conversion Is Like A Mini Unimog

Emmanuel P October 3, 2012

Seen on a Czech blog is this monstrous G500 conversion which has made the nicely-proportioned G-Class diminutive by comparison. Stretching more than 6.3 meters, this SUV (truck maybe?) is longer than a Rolls-Royce Phantom. By 210 mm.

Although sporting a leather interior, this G500 retains the spartan appointments typical of a G-Class. Also typical is the base 5-liter V8 that gives 300 hp when the driver floors the throttle. But peak output is not this vehicle’s forte, rather torquey grunt for all-terrain mobility. As you can see, the major mods are all external, with the chassis extensions allowing a huge cargo bed at the rear, to which the spare tire has also been relocated. The cargo area also follows the belt line of the original G-Class, so the conversion would look almost OEM, were it not the humongous wheel flares that have been grafted onto the body to cover the equally massive off-road tires. Up front, tubular bumpers replace the originals and finishing off this G500 is a matte black finish with blacked-out trim. With that look, you’ve got a unique Model G that literally leaves a big impression.
