This extravagant Mercedes-AMG G63 will set you back over $430,000.
It's been a busy week for Brabus, as the German tuner has unveiled not one, not two, but three new modified Mercedes models. First, Brabus modified the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS by giving it a sporty makeover, then it gave Mercedes EQC electric SUV a power boost. And now the German tuner is offering a new take on the Mercedes G-Class. Dubbed the Brabus 800 Black and Gold Edition, the aftermarket tuner has taken the Mercedes-AMG G63's styling and performance to a new level.
While the standard Mercedes-AMG G63 has a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, Brabus has increased the output to a monstrous 800 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque, resulting in what can only be described as supercar-rivaling performance.
0-62 mph in this beastly off-roader now takes 4.1 seconds, down from 4.4 seconds in the standard AMG G63. Top speed, on the other hand, is still limited to 150 mph. This increased performance was achieved thanks to the installation of two high-performance turbochargers and a stainless sport exhaust system with two black chrome pipes and actively controlled flaps.
As the name suggests, the Brabus 800 Black and Gold Edition is finished in black with contrasting golden brake calipers and gold Brabus emblems and logos, while an aggressive widebody kit with carbon fiber elements makes the AMG G63 four inches wider than the standard version. Other exterior enhancements include a carbon fiber hood, new front and rear bumpers, an LED light unit above the windshield, massive fender flares to make room for the massive 23-inch nine-spoke wheels painted in gold, which are wrapped in 305/35 R 23 Advan Sport high-performance tires.
To complement the extravagant exterior, the leather interior appointed with black leather trim with golden Brabus labels, while other elements such as the center console, air vents, and steering wheel also get the gold accent treatment. Elsewhere, Brabus has added aluminum pedals and door-lock pins and stainless scuff plates with a backlit Brabus logo and the standard rear bench has been replaced with two bucket seats.
There's even a new center rear console with black leather and golden elements providing a comfortable armrest for rear passengers. A 4.3-inch touch screen was also integrated into the top of the console to adjust the seats, volume settings, and ambient lighting. The upfitter hasn't said how limited production will be, but the Brabus Black and Gold Edition will start at 380,672 euros in Germany ($430,715).
