At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus will present a super off-roader powered
by a 800-hp V12 engine and equipped with an innovative multimedia system.
Visually, the 155-mph (250-km/h) G-Class dazzles with its widebody kit and 23-inch forged wheels custom-developed for this model.
The performance the all-wheel drive car delivers speaks volumes. In combination with the seven-speed automatic transmission and permanent all-wheel drive, the Brabus 800 with the Widestar body kit sprints to 60 mph in just 4 seconds. The top speed is limited electronically to 155 mph (250 km/h). Without the limiter the high-performance off-roader would be capable of reaching 167 mph (270 km/h).
Mercedes G65 AMG by Brabus: Exterior
With the Widestar widebody version, the designers at Brabus lend the classic G-Class body in the current facelift version an even more distinctive and dynamic profile. The front of the off-roader is marked by powerful fender flares. But thats not all. The Brabus front spoiler, which also fits any G63 or G65 without Widestar conversion, attaches to the production bumper and features LED daytime running lights on the left and right-hand side. The illumination of the Brabus logos integrated into both sides of the aerodynamic-enhancement component is activated by pulling on a door handle or with the keyless remote.
Another important factor in the spectacular appearance of the front is the new lighting concept with dark Brabus xenon headlights. The precise-fit inserts, which replace the production headlights of the G model, feature special integrated LED daytime running lights that also serve as turn signals. This renders the production turn signals on top of the fenders obsolete. Their openings are closed with custom covers made of clear-coated carbon fiber that add another sporty highlight.
The new look for the front is rounded off with the radiator grille with integrated Brabus logo and an additional faceplate below the radiator grille. The Brabus components for the front are of course also available for all G65 models without Widestar conversion. The Brabus rear bumper with two LED backup and fog lights each and the Brabus roof spoiler with integrated LED brake light are also suitable for universal use.
The front and rear fender flares add 12 centimeters (4.7 in) to the width of the body. Integrated LEDs illuminate the running boards of the G-Class when a door handle is pulled or the keyless remote is activated. Integrated air outlets and Brabus door attachment components add further striking highlights in the side view.
