Video: Tuners Have Made A Luxurious Mercedes-Benz GLE In The Style Of Maybach
German workshop Hofele Design, founded in 1983, has made a luxury version of the Mercedes-Benz GLE. The crossover, dubbed the Hofele Ultimate HGLE, is styled after the flagship Mercedes-Maybach GLS.
The Hofele Ultimate HGLE is available with a Maybach-like two-tone paint job, a radiator grille with vertical chrome strips, 23-inch forged wheels, a rear bumper with diffuser and four exhaust pipes. All original logos have been replaced with those of the tuning studio, and nameplates have been added to the front fenders and rear pillars.
- The Ultimate HGLE saloon differs from the standard crossover in a four-seater layout with a large tunnel that hides several storage compartments. The seats are upholstered in perforated diamond-pattern nappa leather and the headlining in Alcantara. There are pillows on the headrests of the second row, monitors on the backs of the front seats, and rugs made of sheep wool with deep pile on the floor.
- The demonstration Ultimate HGLE is based on the GLE 450 modification. The crossover is equipped with a three-liter "turbo six" with a capacity of 367 hp. (500 Nm) paired with a nine-speed "automatic".
- Hofele Design began accepting orders for the creation of luxury crossovers, and the studio's specialists are ready to stylize any version of the Mercedes-Benz GLE like Maybach. The cost of tuning will be disclosed only to potential customers.
