Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is 800 hp strong attention grabber

The German tuner Brabus presents a new piece of evidence of his obsession with the G-class in Geneva. The company is already pulling the canvas of the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP, an 800 hp powerful pick-up based on the new G-class.

The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is a pick-up based on the 63 AMG version of the G-class, a car that, entirely in accordance with the Brabus tradition, receives an extra powerful powertrain. The 4.0-liter V8 that in the ‘regular’ Mercedes-AMG G 63 is good for 571 hp and 760 Nm, delivers in Brabus’ creation 801 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. With that power, the G-with-open body sprouts in 4.8 seconds to a speed of 100 km / h. The top speed is limited to 210 km / h.

That relatively modest top speed, a standard G63 reaches a speed of 220 km / h and with thunders with the optional AMG Drivers Pack up to 240 km / h, is related to the footwear that AMG gives the pick-up. The 800 Adventure XLP is on a set of off-road tires. In addition, the G has a special chassis that increases ground clearance to a whopping 49 centimeters. The converted G-class is furthermore provided with a plastic scaffolding on the roof where, among other things, a set of spotlights has been given a place. To be able to convert the G-class into a pick-up, Brabus had to extend the wheelbase of the offroader by no less than half a meter. The distance between the front and rear axles is now 3.39 meters. With a length of 5.31 meters, the car itself is just under 69 meters longer than the original. To save weight, Brabus used carbon fiber for the walls of the loading platform.

The costs for all this beauty: more than € 575,000, excluding taxes … You do get a drone for that money from Brabus as standard, because that is, of course, so hip in 2020.
