MIGHTY MUSCLE GOES OFF-ROAD: This is the 566kW Evotech/Topcar Mercedes ML 63 AMG - but who'd ever take it off-road?

 

HAMBURG, Germany - Russian tuning house Topcar has already breathed on the new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG to create a brutish on/off-road muscle-car with 566kW on tap.

Spoiler specialist Topcar enlisted the help of Evotech Motorsport in Ludwigsburg, Germany to extract more power from the standard 5.5-litre V8. Customers can order a more modest package punting 477 or 514kW, Germany's AutoBild said.

Topcar supplies the carbon-fibre full body-kit complete with replacement front and rear bumpers which lend the ML a more martial appearance, along with exclusive alloy wheels rims and a modified exhaust system.

The complete makeover costs the equivalent of about R575 000.
