Four 2010 GLK-Class showcars, customised by leading aftermarket tuning firms, will whet the appetite of the world’s rap video producers and basketball stars prior to its official showroom debut in January 2009.

The concepts include:
RENNTech Rally Racer

Inspired by the unlimited-class rally cars at the storied Pikes Peak Hillclimb, the GLK concept represents the Mercedes-Benz performance specialist’s first hybrid powertrain to enhance acceleration off the line and out of the corners.
Brabus Widestar

Developed by Mercedes-Benz tuning experts Brabus of Bottrop, Germany, this striking wide-track “designer suit” for the GLK300 BLUETEC includes flowing front and rear wheel arch flares and redesigned front and rear bumpers complemented with exclusive Brabus wheels and an interior to match.
The Urban Whip

Florida-based Boulevard Customs has a wide body styling kit, massive 26-inch wheels and tires, redesigned interior and ground-pounding stereo system.
The Four Corners Rock Crawler

Exotic and muscle car restoration specialist Legendary Motor Cars design includes an innovative winching system to propel skate and wakeboarders up to speed and actually “grind” down the vehicle’s specially integrated side rails.

The four GLK-Class vehicles will be displayed at this year’s SEMA show, taking place November 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the exhibition, attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite design via online and mobile voting. Following the SEMA show, the four vehicles will be displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show (November 21-30) providing showgoers with another opportunity to cast their vote. Beginning in early October, all four vehicles will be featured in videos on Mercedes-Benz USA website, www.mbusa.com. The votes from the show attendees and www.mbusa.com will be tallied and the winner will be announced on December 2, 2008.
