I've always like the established auto tuners: Brabus or Lorinser (for Benz), Alpina (BMW), and ABT (Audi). These newer and smaller tuning bureaus couldn't impressed me until now...

That looks terrible lol. Looks like a cheap body kit in a MaxPower magazine from 1999.

To be fair though, I never really did like the G65.

i honestly never understood the design of this model. the company is all about curves (which they can't seem to get right aesthetically more often than not) but this goes against their own design philosophy. it just makes me want to ask them 'what were you thinking?

powerful but do not like :-/

Never really cared for any vehicle that's shaped like a box, but I think it's the headlights that ruin it on this one. Something about them just doesn't look right.

Yeah i do not like it. Tires and wheels look like they belong on a civic. I just think this is a great truck that was made to look horrible.

Eh, it's not the worst looking car in the world. The end result is one of the most fun engines in the world - you really can't argue with a v12 biturbo that's putting down 738 lb/ft torque stock (easily achieve way more with an ECU tune) :p

Any Particular Reason that have Limited the Torque

Torque is the most fun thing about a high powered car

Not sure, I think there's two reasons because 1) that's a lot of power to put to the ground, and can stress out the transmission (and other components) over the life of the car, and also 2) 738 lb/ft. is a nice and even 1,000 newton meters of torque, but that's minor. But, yes, torque is very fun, and the AMG's are notorious for having insane amounts of torque (usually more than the M & RS equivalents). I can say 465 lb/ft. of torque is extremely fun for day to day driving :D

G65 itself is a fugly car and this kit makes it even worse to be honest.

Probably so the tranny doesn't explode when you brush the throttle.

I like the G63/65 because they are bat**** insane. There's no good reason to own one, other than because you can. AMG doesn't try to disguise it as a genuine option for utilitarian motoring. The fact is it's a car that shouldn't exist, but they keep it alive for the oil barons in the Middle East to blow their money on.

The styling on this one is questionable, but no doubt it has presence and it's good bling. From that perspective it does everything it was originally designed for.

So upgrade the Transmission

The Veyron is over 930 lb-ft of Torque so its not as if its impossible

This is the kind of car you'd see being driven by a rich Arab in Saudi Arabia (or a rapper in North America). I don't really like the look but I can appreciate the "bling" factor. I wonder what the fuel economy is like. It must be pretty bad.

It'll be traction limited as well. 295 rubber isn't that much.

Then you'll say put bigger wheels on it, but the G65 has problems turning as it is. It's top-heavy and live axles front and rear don't help at all.

I expect its high ride height and archaeic suspension don't help either.

You could keep tweaking every single part of the car, but if you were to get it to a point where it can handle as much power as you can possibly screw out of the Biturbo V12, it wouldn't be a G-wagon anymore.

G65 = sexy. I really love boxy/industrial style cars.

That thing = ugly as hell. Three exhaust tips? Really?
