So upgrade the Transmission

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

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.

Looks like something that could be done any garage, from mail order parts. No like!

Looks horrible, the irony of being made by A.R.T.

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

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