What are you supposed to do if you live in Beverly Hills, Monaco, or London, roll up to clubs in a bone-stock G-Wagen? You'd get laughed out of every VIP lounge in the city. No, no, you need something more special than that, something more ostentatious. And if you're in a G-Wagen, then Polish tuning company Carlex Design has just the thing for you. That is, if you want to look like you're rolling around in a 1960s bathroom.

A Mercedes G-Wagen doesn't need help attracting attention, especially an AMG G63, with its more aggressive bodywork, bigger wheels, and V8 rumble. However, when this mint-green G-Wagen hits the road, there won't be a single available eyeball not fixed on its
