Brabus 800 Widestar at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show

Posted by on

Brabus 800 Widestar is based on the new Mercedes G 65 AMG. It comes with complete aerodynamics package, big wheels, lowered suspension and awesome performance upgrade.

The 6.0 liter V12 Bi-turbo is boosted to 800HP (588 kW) at 5,500RPM and 1,420Nm (1,047 lb-ft) of torque at just 2,100RPM. However, the peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) to prevent transmission problems. The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox.

0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – electronically limited. Without the limiter the high-performance off-roader would be capable of reaching a speed of 270 km/h (168 mph).

The exterior comes with optional BRABUS WIDESTAR wide-body kit including fender flares, front spoiler added to the production fascia, BRABUS rear fascia, BRABUS roof spoiler and BRABUS logos integrated into both sides of the SUV. The integrated air vents and the BRABUS attachment components on the doors add further striking highlights when viewed from the side.

The widened wheel wells provide space for BRABUS forged wheels with a diameter of 23”. There are three BRABUS “Platinum Edition” 11J x 23” wheels to choose from: In addition to the popular Monoblock E evo and Monoblock F “Platinum Edition” designs, there is now also the BRABUS Monoblock R “Platinum Edition” forged wheel. This design has nine double spokes arranged in two matt titanium and fully polished plains. It is fitted with high-performance tires in size 305/35 R 23 from BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.

Another BRABUS high-tech feature is the Ride Control suspension developed in cooperation with technology partner BILSTEIN. An aluminum button sporting the BRABUS logo on the center console lets the driver manually choose between two setups for the two-way electrically adjustable shock absorbers. In comfort mode the off-roader provides exemplary ride comfort that even surpasses the production car. At higher speeds and for a spirited driving style the firmer sports setting offers more dynamic handling and even further increased safety reserves.

The interior of the G 65 AMG can be custom-tailored to the owner’s personal preferences in the BRABUS upholstery shop. The choice of colors for the especially softy and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and the fine Alcantara is virtually limitless. Just as boundless is the selection of upholstery designs and the variety of exclusive wood or carbon-fiber inlays. In this area as well BRABUS can fulfill special color requests and designs, including wood inlays in an especially exclusive yachting design.

The BRABUS product range also includes stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo and further attractive accessories such as high-quality velour floor mats and BRABUS aluminum pedals and door-lock pins.
