Tuned by Boulevard Customs, the Mercedes-Benz Urban Whip GLK is but one of the four GLK aftermarket tuners Mercedes brought with them to their inaugural SEMA appearance this year. Taking the lyrics, “top down, chrome spinning” quite literally, Boulevard Customs swapped everything north of the GLK’s a-pillar out in exchange for custom structural bracing that would support a roofless body, and outfitted the GLK with the proverbial pair of 26″ Asanti AF 150 chrome wheels. Just in case your teeth weren’t already rattled enough when the low profile tires hit that errant pebble in the road head-on, Boulevard Customs has also equipped the Urban Whip GLK with a 5,700 watt JL Audio system replete with 8 HD amps and six JL 13TW5 flat subwoofers.

Apparently, the name “Urban Whip GLK” was chosen as a last resort after both “Egregious Lack of Taste” and “Black Stereotype” were found to be already in use.
