Aviation Photo of the Year: Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² and Airbus A380


The Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4² meets the Lufthansa Airbus A 380 in a new set of recently-released artistic photos. The results were nothing short of amazing. According to GT Spirit, SR Creativity was the one responsible for the awesome images of the two behemoths. The pictures show the two side-by-side and from the point of view of the aircraft towards the powerful G-Class.

One photo that truly stands out though is the one where the G 500 4×4² is positioned directly in front of the Airbus. It looks like the G-Class suddenly sprouted the wings of the airplane. So what’s in common between the two majestic man-made creations? While it was not revealed why the Airbus was chosen to be partnered with the G 500 4×4², it is very evident that the two reflect an aura of power, resiliency, and luxury.

The G 500 4×4² is the successor of the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6. Similar to its predecessor, the permanent all-wheel drive SUV is capable of treading extreme terrains with its rigid axles. Then within its hood rests a strong 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine, giving the auto up to 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. Within its stylish body lies luxurious leather covers and comfortable seating that only Mercedes could offer. The Airbus on the other hand, also possesses the same elements found on the G 500 4×4², but those are multiplied further. The A380 is considered to be the largest passenger aircraft in the world with a length of 73 meters and a height of 24 meters. It can hold up to 526 passengers in its cabin. Lastly, it has a thrust of around 70,000 lbs, thanks to its four Rolls-Royce engines. That is roughly equal to what 3,500 cars could ever produce.
