We all know that Brabus makes some outstanding cars, they take the original car, strip it and rebuild just about every part of it. This one is no different and is by far one of the most expensive examples they’ve built. They have spared no money in making this masterpiece. Here are the specs on this dream machine…
Despite the fact that SUV’s are falling out of favor with many consumers, tuning firm Brabus has announced plans to introduce their new G V12 S Biturbo at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. Big changes lie under the hood as the new G V12 S Biturbo replaces the traditional V8 engines that normally reside in the G-Class with a version of Mercedes’ V12 engine from the S600.
The engine’s displacement is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 384 cubic inches) and it is outfitted with a new crankshaft, larger cylinders, and reworked cylinder heads. Brabus also added larger turbochargers, a better intercooling system, and a specially designed high-performance stainless steel exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts.
The end result of all this work is an engine that produces 700 hp (690 bhp /515 kW) and an electronically limited 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. Performance figures for this monster include a 0-100 km/h time of 4.3 seconds and a limited top speed of 240 km/h (150 mph). In comparison, the V8 powered G55 AMG produces 500 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque while the Mercedes S600 has 510 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque. In order to cope with all that power, Brabus had to install a custom suspension, a high-performance braking system, and high-performance tires which are available in sizes from 20- to 22-inches.
The hefty €379,000 price tag includes an exclusive exterior that features a Brabus front apron with LED daytime running lights, a new rear bumper, and specially designed caps for the G-Class’ standard running boards that offer integrated LED lights which can be activated via the key fob. Inside there’s a new ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, a 280-km/h (175 mph) speedometer, illuminated sill plates, and handcrafted Brabus Mastik leather. Upon customer request, the company can turn the G V12 S Biturbo into an office on wheels or the ultimate entertainment machine by equipping it with state-of-the-art communications technology, a DVD changer, TV tuner, game console and eight-inch LCD screens mounted to the back of the front headrests.
