Outstanding response to the ‘Extreme-G’ at the Geneva Motor Show has seen Mercedes go ahead and announce the production of the car which will be called the G500 4×4 Squared. The production model will be pretty close to the prototype model of the car.The G500 is based on its six-wheel sibling, the G63 AMG 6×6. Mercedes has taken all the good things from the G63 like the all-wheel drive powertrain with portal axles and removed two tyres to make the G500. The variable chassis of the car has been newly developed by Mercedes which has been combined with the series-production G-Class body.Under its hood, the G500 sports a 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine which has been compactly designed by placing the twin turbochargers inside the V configuration of the engine to increase its efficiency. Aside from this, the cross country vehicle gets specially optimised mud and terrain tyres for it available in 37 x 12.5 x 18 inches size to go over terrain where normal vehicles can’t. Mercedes has gone all out with exclusive interiors designed for the vehicle that provide the passengers of the car an ambient setting, whatever be the conditions outside.Designed specifically for off-road conditions, the car doesn’t lack in driving quality over normal roads and the Sports mode which has different damper settings for the car allows it to go over asphalt as smoothly as it goes over off-road terrain.
