ARES X-Raid

In a world that’s seemingly awash with huge 4x4s there’s one example that’s stood the test of time better than most, Mercedes-Benz’s G-Class. It’s an indomitable machine equally at home on- or off-road and in its G63 form a devastating performer. ARES Design has used the G63 as the basis for its stunning reimagining of the luxury off-roader, the ARES Design X-Raid. It combines the undoubtable excellence of the G63 and its venerable twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 with a unique take on the G-Class’s styling along with a luxurious complete revamp of the 4x4’s interior. With its stunning new lightweight suit and the performance and luxury to match, ARES Design’s X-Raid brings the G-Class thoroughly up to date with a level of style and sophistication that showcases the Modena-based company’s skill set to the full.

There is no doubt that the X-Raid is a big and powerful car that’s not for everyone. It has an impressive, almost aggressive, stance on the road and wherever it’s seen, it becomes the talk of the town. The added power and the exquisite interior adds to the ARES Design experience.
