Mercedes debuts an AMG roof box, offering practicality and aerodynamics
It even has it's own rear diffuser
Mercedes-Benz is widely known for manufacturing some of the best performance cars the world has seen. They also make more practical cars like the AMG GT four door or E63S AMG Estate. But some of these cars only have limited trunk space. Previously there was nothing you could do about it without having to buy a bigger car, or an aftermarket roof box.
No longer do Mercedes owners longing for more on-the-go storage have to painfully search the Internet to find a roof box that is meant only for a certain year of a certain model of a certain Benz. Mercedes has recently unveiled a highly aerodynamic, and practical roof box. Boring? Not if you are seeking to maintain the handling and aerodynamics you paid for when you bought your Benz. How do they accomplish this, you may ask? Well, the AMG roof box has a diffuser engineered to glide through the air as effortlessly as possible, according to Mercedes. But wait, it gets better. It has a gorgeous grey paint job, AMG badging exclusively for this roof box, and a mean looking rear fin. As for practicality, it can hold up to ~108 gallons, and has a payload of over 150 pounds.
This Mercedes-AMG roof box comes in two versions, Mercedes said. The first is designed for all Mercedes models and the other specifically for Mercedes coupé models. Why two? According to MBZ, "the subtle difference lies in the shape of the diffuser, which has been aerodynamically adapted to the... coupé bodies". There is no word on pricing yet, but we'll find out sooner or later by the time it is available for purchase in November.
