New BRABUS G Class revealed Mercedes tuning specialist BRABUS has pulled the wraps off its high-performance variant of the new G-Class.
The Brabus B40 is powered by a 500bhp 4.0-litre V8 and has 524lb ft (710Nm) of torque, giving it a sub 5.0-second 0-60 time. The top speed is limited to 130mph. There are a number of BRABUS styling signatures. At the front, it gets a beefier, lower bumper and a unique BRABUS grille, along with a huge carbon fibre air scoop. It also gets LED lighting and a purposeful light bar over the windscreen, plus a distinctive roof spoiler and BRABUS – specific spare wheel carrier.
20-inch alloys are standard, though optional wheels of up to 23 inches are available for the full bling effect. The look is rounded off with a distinctive stainless steel exhaust system with butterfly valves that can be opened and closed to alter the acoustic accompaniment.
Changes to the cabin are more subtle, with BRABUS carpet mats, aluminium pedals and illuminated door sills, along with some unique BRABUS badges. Prices have yet to be announced.
