The tuning company Brabus has formed the Invicto division, which will develop bulletproof cars. First of all, the specialists of the new sub-brand tested the armor on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The armored G-Class model complies with the VR6 Plus standard. This indicates the ability of a car to withstand shots from Kalashnikov with bullets having a heat-strengthened core, from a distance of up to 10 m.

As emphasized in the company, they managed to create a protective system that is not inferior in terms of factory armor. All parts are fastened using a seamless method, and several layers are applied to the joints.

 The weight of the armored set is approximately a ton. To withstand the loads of the SUV, the tuning studio strengthened the frame, front and rear suspension, and they also equipped the car with improved springs and a more powerful brake system.

 The new model will be offered in two versions: off-road Mission and chic Luxury. The first is distinguished by additional roof lighting and a winch, and the second is built on the basis of its own variation of the Brabus, which has a V8 4-cylinder twin-turbo engine with a capacity of 800 hp.

 Production of these SUVs will be carried out in small batches, most likely, on order. The novelty will begin to be released in the first half of this year, however, at present, the cost of the armored G-Class is unknown.
