Brabus feels your G-Wagon would be much better off with a V12
Brabus has come to the 2019 International Motor Show Germany (IAA Frankfurt) with a very special Mercedes G-Class, dubbed the ‘G V12 900 One of Ten’. As you can guess, the production run will be kept down to 10 copies.
A redesigned M279 V12 will be powering each SUV, assisted by a larger turbine charger, new pistons and cylinders, as well as revised intake and exhaust systems. The tuner increases the displacement volume from the original 6.0 liters to 6.3 and gets the output at the crank all the way up to 900 hp (671 kW). To compare, the stock AMG G 63 only draws 585 hp (436 kW) from its V8.
The Brabus G makes it to one hundred kilometers per hour (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and maxes out at 280 km/h (174 mph).
Purely visual changes are limited to extreme fender flares (+100 mm / 4 inches) and aftermarket 24-inch wheels. The cabin has also been redone from scratch.
Each Brabus G V12 900 One of Ten flaunts a €605,000 price tag, which is about four times as expensive as a new G-Class AMG.
