Monaco - Mercedes-AMG’s versions of that blocky icon called the G-Class are already quite off the wall by SUV standards, to put it mildly.
And yet Brabus, as the German tuner has proven it does best, has taken a vehicle that's already rather insane and made it even crazier.
Meet the Brabus 700 Widestar.
Let’s start with the engine. AMG’s 4-litre twin-turbo V8, which produces 430kW and 850Nm in standard G63 guise, has been tuned up to 515kW and 950Nm, largely through new mapping for injection and ignition and a moderate increase in turbo boost pressure.
Zero to 100km/h now comes up in 4.3 seconds, 0.1s quicker than before, and the top speed is limited to 240km/h to protect the tyres.
