Brabus 900 G-Class one of 10

14 September 2017

The iconic Mercedes G-Class is no stranger to being tinkered with, this by time famous Merc tuner Brabus that has modified this G-wagon into something with an eye-watering amount of luxury and power.

The Brabus 900 (the 900 refers to the 900 metric horsepower it produces) will be one of ten models to hit the road with the first one on display at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is fitted with a V12 AMG engine that has had its displacement upped from 6- to 6.3-litres (by increasing the cylinder bore) that delivers an incredible 662kW and 1500Nm of torque! The torque has been electronically capped at 1200Nm though.

The super G-Wagen rides on 23-inch wheels fitted with Yokohama Advan Sport 305/35 tyres and can reach 100kph from a standstill in 3.9 seconds.

This, the most powerful V12 off-road vehicle ever can reach the top speed of 270 km/h (also is electronically capped). To slow the monster down, Brabus has fitted aluminum cross-drilled brakes, ‘the largest brakes ever designed for use on an SUV,’ that measure 16.2-inches in the front.

Every panel of the wider body kit that gives this mean machine an extra 12cm in width,  is covered in carbon fiber.

The interior has been completely overhauled with black and white leather upholstery, an Alcantara roof liner with hundreds of optical fibers that shine through pinprick openings, allowing the user to adjust the colour and ambiance of the lighting in the cabin.

Two captain’s chairs replace the rear bench seat with a 4.3-inch digital display in between and there is even a built-in safe with an electrically powered drawer.

According to CarandDriver, this custom creation will cost in the region of $797 000 or R10 500 000!
