We zagen ooit al een GL met ART Triumphzug en een GL met vleugeldeuren, nu is het wederom tijd voor een update. Onder de noemer ART MAMMUT komt het Duitse tuninghuis met wat extra componenten voor je Mercedes GL SUV.
Een witte SUV is nog steeds cool volgens de trendsetters van A.R.T. Daarom bieden ze als extra optie een setje bijpassende witte 22-inchers.
Voor de grille lijkt men inspiratie te hebben opgedaan bij ASMA en ook de overige “componenten” zijn niet echt subtiel te noemen. Een aantal trefwoorden: LEDjes, Xenon, mistlampen, neon instaplichtjes, chroom uitlaatsysteem, etc. Meer details vind je hieronder, mocht je het willen weten.
Among the big and powerful, A.R.T. is accompanying the new GL from Mercedes-Benz on its triumphal march. The Nuremberg tuning specialists have developed a still wider program of components for upgrading this luxury vehicle. The program is named after that behemoth of yore, the mammoth.
Dreams of strength and atavistic instincts are conjured up by the distinctive new exterior that A.R.T. developers have given this premium class SUV.
In the front skirt, large-nostriled air inlets, an innovative front-grille and a wider area overall elicit the deserved respect from obervers. A Triple Beam Lamp Set with an additional Xenon high-beam headlight, daylight lamp in LED technology and a dual-function unit for cornerlight and fog lights boost the charisma of the vehicle’s front while providing the driver with that extra passive safety for nighttime driving. The optimally proportioned new broadened front fenders each incorporate an gill.
The modfied A.R.T. BiXENON Headlamp System NERO provides the finishing touch to the combative front image of the already powerful vehicle.
In the rear region, the vehicle also impresses with its broadened fenders with gills. These incorporate red rear LED lights that are automatically activated while any of the doors are open.
An avantgarde 5-part rear frame including an integrated roof spoiler brilliantly enhances the design and provides more passive safety with its wide LED brake light strip.
The A.R.T. rear skirt with an integrated diffusor gives the GL MAMMUT a clear width advantage and, in conjunction with the A.R.T. four-pipe sports exhaust, makes an even more powerful impression on drivers behind. The high-polish hard-chromed 100mm tail pipe with A.R.T. logos embossed in the tailpieces provide the seal of quality. Two stainless-steel high-quality rear mufflers ensure the sound is right.
The exclusive A.R.T. STEPLIGHTS project light across the running boards whatever the light conditions and clearly mark the point of access to the vehicle even when the doors are closed if the key is activated. Then, parallel light-blue beam segments shine out through the filigree openings in the highly polished stainless steel.
The light-blue illuminated Entry Ledges with the A.R.T. logo made from finely polished and brushed stainless steel make for a well-groomed appearance and assist entry into the vehicle.
To get you ahead: The A.R.T. engine performance for CDI versions offers electronic performance optimization of the motor control. It squeezes around another 20% of speed out of those already powerful series engines. Performance optimization will be available soon for the V6 and V8 petrol engines. More performance, better dynamics, especially in the low speed range with lower fuel consumption. Two unbeatable arguments for tuning the performance of your diesel engine: your wallet and … our environment.
The electronic A.R.T. suspension system for the series Airmatic chassis lowers the vehicle height by 35mm and can be individually adjusted up to 60 mm. All other built-in chassis control functions remain unchanged.
For the wheel concept, A.R.T. proposes its 22-inch monoART1 light-alloy rims for the GL MAMMUT, with a special coating to match the vehicle color.
Matching tire sizes are available in dimensions up to 315/30R22.
The A.R.T. sports steering wheel is ergonomically shaped and accentuated with perforated grips. A fine selection of possible combinations: leather/fine wood, leather/leather, leather/alcantara, or leather/carbon fiber offer multiple variations for the interior design of the GL cockpit. There are no limits to the individualization that is possible.
The GL MAMMUT from A.R.T. is all in all living proof of stylish power, sophisticated comfort, and compact design in what is a well-proportioned departure from series culture.
