Ares X-Raid

Founded by the former head of Lotus, Danny Bahar, Ares Design is one of those soon to be formidable aftermarket design houses you have yet to hear about. Not to worry though, we’re confident that after having a look at their first production vehicle – dubbed the X-Raid – you soon won’t forget this Italy-based builder.

Based on the Mercedes G63 G-Wagon, it’s evident right from the start that this ride boasts both luxurious amenities and superb engineering under the hood. In fact, at the helm here is a 760 hp V8 that jets this aggressive SUV to a top speed of 155 mph. The buck doesn’t stop there either, thanks to a fully independent carbon body, 22-inch bespoke Ares Design forged wheels and a tire pressure control system. Over 400 pounds in total are saved by the lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum body and with a luxurious interior complete with a sports steering wheel, state of the art contemporary interior design and Nappa leather upholstery, you’ll be tearing through the local landscape in sheer style.
