Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG by TopCar


Russian tuning specialist, TopCar, has revealed renderings of its forthcoming styling package for the mighty 381 kW (518 hp) Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG SUV model.

Constructed from carbon fibre and Kevlar, the kit includes a much more aggressive front bumper with larger intakes, LED daytime running lights and an integrated splitter, and replacement fenders with beefed-up arches. Down the sides there are new sill extensions, and strakes on the front doors with similar panels on the rears which blend seamlessly into the wider arches. The back bumper features a subtle diffuser, while the deletion of the ML’s roof bars provide an uncluttered appearance.

The wheels look like ADV.1 items to us.
