Brabus Turns The G63 AMG Into An Angry Beast

The SUV has more power than you'll ever need.

Brabus has to beone of the craziest tuning companies around. Just how crazy is it? Thecompany has created this insane monster, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo G63Widestar. As its name would imply, the G63 Widestar packs an incredible turbochargedV8 engine that pumps out 838 hp and 1,069 lb-ft of torque. That’s anastonishing bump of approximately 200 hp and 300 lb-ft over the 6.0-literV12 found in the already zany Mercedes-AMG G65 AMG.

To create this ludicrousamount of power, Brabus has increased the original 5.5-liter V8 to 6.0 litersby boring out the cylinders and installing larger forged pistons. There’s a lotof other engine work under the hood, but the standard turbos have been replacedby larger compressor units, while intake and charge air pipes have been fittedwith special “gold heat reflection.” For a deeper growl, the SUV has beenfitted with a Brabus sport exhaust system with stainless steel dual-sidetailpipes. Incredibly, the G63 Widestar can get to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and islimited to a top speed of 162 mph. Look out for the Brabus 850 G63 Widestart atthis year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
