Say hello to the $825,000 Brabus 800 XLP Superwhite.
The Mercedes-Benz X-Class was an abysmal failure for the manufacturer mainly because it just didn't offer a different experience from the much cheaper Nissan Frontier on which it was based. Some enthusiasts around the world still scratch their heads at why the brand didn't just use the existing wildly capable solid rear axle platform that currently underpins the extremely popular Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
In very rare cases, the G-Class can be had with a truck body style, but you won't be able to get this directly from the manufacturer. These conversions are also extremely costly due to the significant redesign made to the body. Experts in this trade are the AMG specialists at Brabus who have just completed work on an all-new variation.
The Brabus 800 XLP Superwhite, bearing a gut-wrenching price tag of just under $825,000, has been detailed from head-to-toe to be a luxurious truck experience. Consider this to be the perfect antithesis to the XLP Superblack that was revealed to us earlier this year. Like that model, this is powered by AMG's twin-turbo 4.0-liter gasoline engine with an increased output of 788 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque.
Separating it from the darker edition is an in-house designed Diamond White Pearl paint finish accentuated by carbon fiber highlights scattered throughout the external design. The most curious design cue of the exterior has to be the sports exhaust system that catches your attention with its ambient lighting cluster.
When you step inside, you'll be greeted by a handcrafted interior featuring the tuning firm's White Heat leather upholstery with specialized quilting for the seats. Matching the exterior theme is an array of carbon gloss black bits that have been installed everywhere from the dashboard to the door cards.
While it may be unapologetically posh, Brabus still wants its customers to use this unique configuration for thorough off-roading. That's exactly why it has fitted a heavy-duty front winch and coated spare wheel. Customers can also choose an array of roof rack configurations that adhere to their varying adventurous needs. Those 22-inch Monoblock HD Forged wheels may look fancy, but the tuning firm explains that they are designed to be used in heavy-duty off-road conditions.
