You Can Buy This Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen Ruined By a Kardashian
It’s wrapped in velvet because of course it is.
Have you always admired that beautiful boxy and utilitarian look of the Mercedes-Benz G-wagen? Do you like the stunning performance of AMG engines, hand-built by one man? Do you have a spare $145,000 just burning a hole in your pocket? Lastly, do you like velvet wraps? If you answered yes to all the above, Newport Coast Auto has the perfect deal for you: Kylie Jenner’s 2015 G63 AMG, with 4,616 miles, which she has inexplicably wrapped in black velour.
Perhaps you’re a well-informed Gelandewagen aficionado, and you’re now saying, “Hang on. A brand new G63 AMG costs $149,175. Why would anyone pay nearly full sticker for a car with 5,000 miles?” Why, because it was “celebrity owned!!!” And for that custom black velvet wrap! Can you really put a price on being able to pet your car? (Yes. Yes, you can. It’s apparently $5,000.) The G63 also features the AMG sport front seats, all the Designo carbon fiber trim and black piano lacquer you desire and 24-inch Forgiato Auguri Wheels, which appear to have been customized to cover the Forgiato logo and replace it with a “K.” Because this family can’t not have their initials on everything they own.
You’ll also get that lovely 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 AMG engine, good for 536 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, and the remainder of the manufacturer warranty on the ute. Nevermind if Kelley Blue Book says fair market price for the car is as much as $20,000 lower than what Jenner is looking for. This G-Wagen has celebrity provenance. And it’s rocking the equivalent of a Juicy sweatsuit! You should be so lucky to bop around town in style, class and fuzzy comfort. Now, how long before Khloe Kardashian’s velvet-wrapped Range Rover hits the market?
