Indian cricketers are known across the globe for their jaw-dropping performance and immense amounts of talent on the field. However, in recent times, the new generation of Indian cricketers is becoming famous for their expensive supercars and other luxury purchases. Recently, Shreyas Iyer, the popular right-handed batsman, made it to the headlines for customizing his newly bought Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG SUV. The cricketer bought this vehicle a while ago but recently added a Brabus kit to make it more unique.
The video of the Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain, Shreyas Iyer, driving around in his custom Brabus Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, was shared on YouTube by CS 12 Vlogs on their channel. The video shows the cricketer’s Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen crossing the busy Marine Drive road in Mumbai multiple times. The video does not show Shreyas Iyer driving the car because it had dark black tints on the windows.
From the video, it can be noted that the car has now been wrapped in a new matte black color. Originally, Shreyas Iyer bought the car in the classy shade of Selenite Grey Metallic. Another important highlight of this recent spotting of Iyer’s G-Wagen is that this time it has been modified with the full Brabus kit. When Shreyas first bought the car, it only had the bonnet scoop finished in carbon fiber.
However, this time around, the car was seen with the Brabus roof-mounted LED DRLs that come encased in a carbon fiber piece. Additionally, the car this time around also had a rear carbon fiber spoiler as well. Now, if the spoiler is from Brabus or not, it is not confirmed, as the one that comes with the Brabus kit has a slightly different design. This particular spoiler was a lot sleeker and more aggressive.
Coming to the details about the SUV that Shreyas Iyer drives, it is the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. More commonly across the globe, this SUV is known as the G-Wagen. This tank of an SUV is a highly capable off-roader that has gained a huge amount of popularity among popular media, sports, and business personalities. This luxury off-roader from the German luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz comes available in India in two variants. The first is a standard G350d variant, and the other is the more expensive and powerful G63 AMG. Both of these cars have some major differences but are still equally popular in India.
The Mercedes-Benz G350d comes equipped with a 6-cylinder diesel engine that produces 281 bhp of max power and 600 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to an automatic transmission. Currently, the G350d is priced at Rs. 1.96 crores ex-showroom. The G63 AMG, on the other hand, comes equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 Biturbo petrol engine. This massive engine produces a maximum of 576 bhp of power and a peak torque output of 850 Nm. It also comes mated to an automatic transmission that transfers the power to all four wheels. At the moment, the G63 AMG is priced at Rs 2.91 crore in India.
