Specialists of the Brabus studio have built an extreme pickup truck on the basis of the “charged” SUV Mercedes-AMG G63 of the new generation, which will be shown to the public for the first time “live” at the motor show in Geneva 2020.
First of all, the modification called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP differs from the donor G63 in the presence of a full-fledged cargo area. The latter is made of steel, and its inner lining is made of carbon fiber.
In the process of tuning, the SUV retained the rear window of the cab with a standard luggage door and a standard wiper, while the cargo area of the resulting pickup can be used not only for utilitarian purposes, but also, for example, as a landing pad for a drone.
Outside, the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP also received plastic mudguards on the fenders, making it 116 mm wider than the original car. The tuners do not cover the features of the interior of the modification, but the photographs show that the interior of the model is almost completely covered with leather with diamond-shaped stitching and atelier’s logos on the headrests of the seats.
It is reported that during the modifications to the car, Brabus specialists stretched the wheelbase of the car by as much as half a meter, while maintaining the strength of the frame. Plus, the rear overhang was increased on the SUV, so that the length of the modification reaches as much as 5 310 mm (+ 689).
Plus, the tuners boosted a 4.0-liter V8 with two turbochargers. The engine received new superchargers and firmware, while its performance increased from 585 hp. and 850 Nm to 800 forces and 1,000 Nm of torque. This allows a heavy pickup to “shoot” from zero to hundreds in 4.8 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 210 km / h (and that is electronically limited).
Another distinctive feature of the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is the portal axle suspension. It is still independent at the front, and a continuous beam is installed at the rear, but there is now a final drive on each wheel. The pickup is fitted with 22-inch wheels with 325/55 Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires, giving it an impressive 490 mm of ground clearance.
Acceptance of orders for modification is already open, the price of an extreme all-terrain vehicle starts from 575 630 euros (almost 42 million rubles), while the usual G63 costs at least € 153 000. At the same time, the first copy of the truck will be presented in Geneva for € 666 836 (48.5 million rubles). It has a rich set of options, and the Wingcopter flying drone is included with the car. The latter can reach speeds of up to 240 km / h, moving away from the operator by 120 km.
