The famous tuning studio Brabus presented another project based on the German SUV Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The car will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show, which starts in a couple of days.
The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is a highly modernized version of the German high-performance SUV Mercedes-AMG G63, which will debut this year at the Geneva Motor Show. This time, the studio drastically approached the alteration of a full-size legend, adding a loading platform to the body – yes, now it’s a pickup truck. A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine has also been modified; its power is 789 horsepower (1000 Nm). To conquer the harsh terrain, the SUV gets gantry axles. Specialists from Brabus also equipped their new product with the Wingcopter drone.
The 800 Adventure XLP can reach 100 km / h in just 4.8 seconds, which is impressive for such a large and heavy car. 22-inch all-terrain tires force the company to limit the maximum speed to 210 km / h.
To make room for the cargo platform, the guys from Brabus are expanding the wheelbase by 50 centimeters. In general, the car now takes 5.31 meters in length, which is 68.9 centimeters longer than the production car G63 without a spare tire. The company claims that the modifications made to the frame completely retain the factory torsional rigidity of the original G-class.
The design of the loading platform is made of steel, and the side walls are made of carbon to reduce the total weight. The car received a new hood with a pair of “scoops”, there is also a winch. The roof rack adds even more space for transporting equipment to the desert.
The 800 Adventure XLP also has a custom suspension that provides 49 centimeters of ground clearance. With all the options available, the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP will cost 666,386 euros.
