Mercedes-Benz has just unveiled a special edition G55 AMG SUV at this year’s Qatar Motor Show. Dubbed the Mercedes G-Class Arabia 100 Limited Edition, the G55 has a (you guessed it) limited edition run of just 100 units and will be available in either Cashmere White or Nightblack.

To go along with its rugged exterior, Mercedes has outfitted the limited edition G-Class with a set of 19-inch AMG wheels in a special matte-finish. In the interior, a two-tone treatment was given with a contrasting black and porcelain leather theme while carbon fiber and champagne white Designo piano lacquer wood trim acts as decor. The G also gets a special rear entertainment system.

Under the hood, there are no changes, but who really needs them with 507-hp from a supercharged V8.

The Middle East is currently Mercedes-Benz’s fourth largest market for G-Class sales, so it’s no surprise that they would get their own special edition to enjoy.
