#WOWCoverStar behind the scenes video

Exclusive, exuberant and exceptional

The #WOWCoverstar competition was a model search for the cover of the 2015 issue of Women on Wheels magazine. The chosen cover model posed next to the exquisite, premium-class Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG. 

The new Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG is one of the most sophisticated off-roaders you’ll ever drive, delivering performance, luxury and passion in a neat package.

Exclusive, exuberant and exceptional. The iconic Merc brand has delivered a different breed of SUV – you’re looking at the fashionista iron Women on Wheels. It’s loaded with all the mod cons you’d expect and even some you wouldn’t. It’s so versatile you will never run out of ideas to put it through its paces. It’s all about uber luxury of course, like heated, quilted leather seats and a leather-trimmed dashboard, but then you get sassy sporty touches oto, ,ike the G 63 AMG specific instrument cluster and ambient lighting that creates a cosy feel when driving at night. There’s plenty of smart technology too, to keep it ahead of the pack.

There’s a limited edition palette of five high-fashion colours never seen on a SUV before. This is a one-of-a-kind off-roader and there are only five, one in each shade, available in South Africa.

The 5,5-litre V8-biturbo engine accelerates this sassy SUV from 0-100 km/h in a mere 5,4 seconds. It’s also the reason for the reduced fuel consumption, which sets a benchmark among all-terrain vehicles. There’s plenty of power output to take you up Kilimanjaro but it’s still agile enough to navigate the bust city streets.

Fun and fabulously fashionable, this is one super mama of a Merc.
