Spotted in China: ART Mercedes-Benz G500 Cabriolet Streetline

A very rare ART Mercedes-Benz G500 Cabriolet Streetline, seen in a second hand super car dealer on the Beijing Tuning Street. The ART Streeline is one of the most extreme Gee money can buy. The prettiness starts with an all-around bodykiy that transforms the huge G500 into something even more maniac.
Triple exhaust pipes sing: “blurbl blurbl blurbl”. ART didn’t leave the engine untouched. Power is up to a blurbling and Beining-burning 490hp and 650nm, making this G500 Cabriolet one of the fastest convertible vehicles on the China car market. Sadly, speed is expensive. I met a man working for the dealer, he ssaid the vehicle was brand enw and just imported from Germany. I asked him how much, he said very expensive, I asked him how much, he smiled, I asked him how much, he said… 3.5 million yuan, that’s a steep 586.000 USD.
Lotta money, but lotta bodykit. ART still does not have any official dealers in China, so ART cars are a seldom sight. This G500 Cabriolet Streetline is only the second ART we meet in country, after an even more powerful ART G55 AMG Streetline from Dalian.
