P right in time for the IAA in Frankfurt, Brabus is releasing a new PS monster from the chain. The Brabus G V12 900 One of ten is a G-Class that has been revamped to 900 hp and 1,500 Newton meters and is limited to just ten units. The 6.0-liter, 530-hp twelve-cylinder engine that works as standard in a Mercedes S 600 L has 6.3 liters and almost twice as much output after a visit to the high-tech engine department.
The power is transmitted via a nine-speed automatic transmission, which can also be shifted manually using the paddles on the steering wheel, and permanent all-wheel drive. The sprint to 100 km /h takes 3.8 seconds, at 280 kilometers per hour it is over. The price for the refined SUV starts at 720.015 euros and 45 cents. The combined fuel consumption is specified as 18.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
Instead of the two series turbos, superchargers with a larger compressor unit and turbine as well as modified exhaust manifolds are used, which produce a higher boost pressure than the series parts. At the same time, the engine electronics were reprogrammed with special maps for injection and ignition and the boost pressure control was newly modified. 80 millimeter thick downpipes are just as much part of the conversion as metal catalytic converters that reduce pressure levels and a flap-controlled stainless steel high-performance exhaust system. Thanks to the integrated sound management, the driver can choose between robust V12 sound in sport mode or discreet whispering in 'Coming Home' mode at a switch in the center console.
355 wide tires on the rear axle
The built-in Ride Control coilover kit is with theStandard Dynamic Select chassis adjustment in the cockpit, with which you can choose between different setups not only for the chassis, but also for the drive, steering and assistance systems. In addition, the chassis can be adjusted in height.
From the outside, the 2,660 kilogram Bottrop can be recognized by its wide body and numerous carbon attachments, such as the bonnet. The G-Class in the Brabus guise is a full ten centimeters wider. With its large air inlets, the front element supplies the engine, cooler and brakes with the necessary fresh air. The indicated underrun protection was made in carbon fiber. The mighty forged wheels come in 23 or 24 inch formats. The tires on the rear axle are up to 35.5 centimeters wide.
In the interior, the first thing that catches the eye is the full leather interior from the in-house saddlery. The contrast to the black outer skin could hardly be greater thanks to the combination of porcelain and saddle brown leather including orange tucks. The center panels of the seats are quilted in a shell design. The headliner is covered with black Alcantara. To ensure easier entry, the doors open almost at a 90 degree angle to the body.
