Visually, the G-Wagen wears a new front spoiler with integrated LED lights, radiator grille insert with Brabus emblem, fender flares adding 12 cm to the vehicle’s width, stainless-steel running boards, roof spoiler and a rear fascia with underride guard. A wide range of alloys wheels are available, including the Platinum Edition Monoblock F designs pictured, which measure 11 x 23-inches, while the Brabus Ride Control suspension system, featuring automatic damper adjustment, detects speed and lateral forces before choosing the optimal setting for the situation.
Moving inside, past the backlit stainless steel scuff plates, Brabus uses materials such as soft Mastik leather or Alcantara aluminium to reupholster the seats and panelling, along with components such as wooden inlays, alumnium pedals and velour floor mats.
The company’s B63-620 performance upgrade centres around B63 – 620 PowerXtra software and a stainless steel exhaust system with butterfly valve, which sees output from AMG’s sinewy 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine rise from 400 kW (544 hp) and 760 Nm of torque to 456 kW (620 hp) and 820 Nm. Those changes see the 0-100 km/h time drop to 5.1 seconds, while the top speed is limited to a relatively stationary 230 km/h (143 mph).
