Uhuru Kenyatta is arguably the most flamboyant President in Africa who loves a particular style of luxury. The president owns a number of cars but he loves the Mercedes G wagon more.
Uhuru has been seen driving the German machine on a number of occasions across the city and sometimes alone. His car has a registration number KCL 275Y. The head of state has been in the past seen with the same car but in different number plates.
The G class is powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces a lot of power. The G class has 563 horsepower for its v8 engine.
Given its age, the interior is in good condition. The Mercedes G-Class boats the COMAND infotainment system, which includes navigation, Mobile connectivity, and in-car internet access.
The interior appointments, on the other hand, have long been premium and comfortable – Mercedes has always prided itself on the G-Class being extremely luxurious considering its rugged capabilities.
The seats and dash are upholstered in rich leathers, with a range of inlays ranging from aluminum to wood-look paneling. All of the buttons and switchgear sound as high-end as they should in a car with a six-figure price tag.
According to the Manufacturer, the Retail Price (MSRP) of the 2018 Mercedes-AMG G-Class luxury SUV starts at Ksh14,379,500 for the G63 and runs up to 20 million.
