Limited edition Mercedes G55 Arabia
Limited edition Mercedes G55 Arabia will have only 100 pieces available for sale. Zawawi Trading Company, which happens to be the primary distributor of Mercedes Benz cars in the Sultanate of Oman, has now launched a limited edition version of its G series MUV. Available in 2 colors (matte black and cashmere white), there will be only 100 editions of the car to be released, created especially for the Gulf region. The only other time which comes to memory regarding limited editions of this SUV is the one-off custom version G55 AMG for the royal family of Abu Dhabi.
Subtle and few, but there have been some notable changes to the limited edition version. One of the prominent ones is the use of special 19-inch sporty alloy AMG wheels, along with the use of chrome bull bars and carbon fittings on the vehicle’s chassis. In the interior section, there is a dual tone finishing of the black and porcelain versions of leather, contrasting with the white champagne Designo piano wooden trimmings.
Other additions in the tech front would include the entertainment system placed for rear seat passengers, and 2 options for vehicle’s engines. The G500 is a 5.5 liter V8 engine, with 388HP of output whereas the flagship version, the G55 has a V8 supercharged engine which has a greater output of 507HP.
