Brabus 800 Adventure XLP-Detailed and Gallery

Brabus 800 Adventure XLP, which was once a Mercedes-AMG G63. From those audacious beginnings, Brabus 'roided-up the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with its 800 PowerXtra+ tune, boosting output to 789 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. The dash to 62 mph takes 4.8 seconds, the firm's side-exit exhaust with Boost Xtra sound ensures no one mistakes the engine's evil intent.
Brabus engineers stretched the wheelbase 20 inches, chopped the roof off the cargo area and installed a carbon fiber pickup bed with a steel pan, and placed a portal axle suspension underneath. The result is 19.2 inches of ground clearance on 22-inch, eight-bolt Brabus Monoblock HD wheels wearing 325/55 Pirelli Scorpion ATR rubber. Oh, there's also a Brabus Widestar body kit for an extra 4.6 inches of girth. That's on top of the 27.1 inches of overall additional length compared to a standard G63.
The coilover portal suspension, based on Brabus' titanium Ride Control unit, is brand new — independent in front, beam axle in back. Many of its components, such as the integral subframe its bolted to and the reinforced axle housing, are made from milled billet aluminum. Suspension tweaks like ride height and damping level can be controlled through the same stock Mercedes Dynamic Select system that dials up changes to the steering and engine power mapping.
