Brabus is not messing around with its latest G-Class model.
It’s called the Brabus G V12 900 One of Ten and it will make its official debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
As the name suggests, only ten will be built and Brabus says it’s the fastest G-Class it has ever made. Quite a statement from a company known for building ridiculous G-Class-based models.
To ensure this particular model is faster than any other G-Class, Brabus removes the already ridiculous 4.0-litre biturbo V8 and replaces it with a 63-litre biturbo V12 petrol. The result is 662kW and 1500Nm of torque. All of that power is sent to the four-wheel drive system via a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Even though it weighs in at 2660kg, the G V12 900 can sprint to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds, which is exactly the same as the Mercedes McLaren from a few years ago. The top speed is electronically limited to 280km/h.
Obviously, a large engine simply isn’t enough in the world of Brabus, so this car also comes with a new widebody kit, 23-inch alloy wheels, Brabus’ own dynamic ride control and a hand-made interior.
It sells for 605 055 euros, which is around R10 million.
