Latest Brabus Mercedes G-Class Is Ready to Get Dirty

Tuning / Comments

Thanks to a new off-road package.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is already one of the most capable off-road vehicles on sale. And if you don't plan to ever take it off-roading, Mercedes-AMG will happily sell you the high-performance G63 variant. But if a $150,000 SUV with 577 horsepower still isn't enough for you, the folks over at Brabus will happily sell you an even more extreme version. Brabus recently showed off its G V12 900 model, which uses a 6.3-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 888 hp and 1,106 lb-ft of torque.

Only 10 will be built at $670,000 each, so chances are you probably won't be able to nab one. But if you still fancy a G-Class that has been tuned by Brabus, the aftermarket tuner has just released something a bit more reasonable. Introducing the Brabus Adventure, a new off-roading package for the Mercedes G-Class.

Brabus says the package is available for all models of the current G-Class. It was developed to maximize the vehicle's off-road capability, meaning the Brabus rides on 20-inch Monoblock R wheels with maximum-traction off-road tires (285/55 R 20). To accommodate those chunky tires, the company has fitted a widebody kit with massive fender flares and for emergencies, a fifth wheel sits on the rear tailgate.

Other off-road features include a raised ride height, winch, LED auxiliary headlamps, and a roof-mounted luggage rack with a rear ladder for easier loading and unloading. Visually, Brabus has given the G-Class aggressive off-roading style with large air intakes, a brush guard, hoot attachment, running boards, stylized skidplate, and plenty of exposed carbon fiber.

This particular example is built on the G 350d model, which utilizes a 3.0-liter inline-six producing 282 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. But Brabus has tuned the engine with its ECO PowerXtra D35 module, which bumps the output to 326 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Even though it weighs 2.5 metric tons, Brabus says the Adventure can hit 62 mph in 7.2 seconds on the way to a 126 mph top speed. The G550 model will likely be even quicker so if you live in the US and want an even more off-road capable G-Class, give Brabus a call.
