Brabus Wheels

BRABUS 700 WIDESTAR: That is the exclusive high-performance off-roader based on the new Mercedes G 63 AMG celebrating its world premiere at the MONACO YACHT SHOW 2018. The 4×4 is powered by a four-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 700 hp and sprints from rest to 62 mph in just 4.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km/h (149 mph). Visually, the power off-roader impresses with its thrilling BRABUS WIDESTAR wide-body and its 23-inch BRABUS “Platinum Edition” Monoblock hi-tech forged wheels. Exquisite two-tone BRABUS fine leather appointments give the interior of the cross-country vehicle an even more attractive ambiance.

Exterior Aerodynamics


The new BRABUS 700 WIDESTAR also stands out from the crowd visually. The BRABUS designers developed a thrilling new WIDESTAR variant specifically for the new G-Class. It seamlessly continues the globally successful tradition of the BRABUS widebody versions for the earlier generations of the G-Model.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR bodywork modifications include new front and rear fascia. The BRABUS component at the front replaces the production bumper. The new front fascia is designed to transition into the wheel arch flares seamlessly and make the front of the off-roader even more distinctive. The integrated LED position markers below the side air intakes add visual highlights and optimize the active safety in addition. A special insert with integrated BRABUS logo is available for the radiator grille.

The muscularly sculpted wheel arch flares add ten centimeters to the width of the vehicle body and provide new visual highlights with carefully positioned features. The strikingly styled BRABUS fender attachments at the front and rear axle give the off-roader unmistakable looks from the sides as well. The LEDs integrated into the front and rear WIDESTAR fenders illuminate the running boards when a door handle is pulled or the door is unlocked. This also activates the lights in the BRABUS logos integrated into the fender attachments aft of the front flares. These wheel arch flares naturally also create space for extremely large wheels and tires.

The powerful design idiom of the BRABUS WIDESTAR version with stylized underride guard continues in the rear fascia. It also creates a homogeneous transition to the fender attachments, which like the front flares feature stylized air outlets at the rear to ensure a sporty appearance. The new BRABUS rear airfoil lends the off-roader an even more distinctive appearance from the rear as well.

Another feature that instantly catches the eye is the BRABUS auxiliary light bar on the roof. This module is fitted with two powerful LED units. When the driver uses the headlamp flashers or high beams, two times twelve LEDs provide significantly improved illumination of the roadway in the dark.

As an ideal complement to a spectacular wide body package, BRABUS offers a sport exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flaps for the G 63 AMG. The flaps produce a variable exhaust note ranging from a subtle “Coming Home” mode to a throaty, sporty V8 sound. With two silver or black chrome tailpipes exiting in front of the rear wheels on either side, the stainless exhaust also adds striking visual highlights.

Bespoke Forged Wheels

The exclusive BRABUS looks are of course also coined significantly by the forged BRABUS Monoblock wheels, which were designed specifically for the new G-Class. Customers can choose from various designs and sizes from 20 to 23 inches in diameter. The most exclusive option for the WIDESTAR version features BRABUS Monoblock “Platinum Edition” 23-inch forged wheels, which offer a perfect mix of lightweight design and tremendous strength. The size 11Jx23 wheels come in four different BRABUS designs. The show car in Monaco sports Monoblock F 23-inch cross-spoke wheels, which were given a titanium-colored paint finish to contrast with the black bodywork.

High Performance Engine Tuning

The BRABUS power plant engineers developed a version of the B40-700 performance upgrade specifically tailored to the new Mercedes G 63 AMG with four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. At the heart of the modification is a plug-and-play control module that is adapted to the electronic engine control unit of the vehicle. Extensive test cycles on state-of-the-art test benches and on the road as well as in terrain were used to re-calibrate the electronic boost pressure control and program optimized mapping for injection and ignition.

The peak output jumps from stock 585 hp to 700 hp at a low 6,100 rpm. Peak torque grows simultaneously from 627 to 701 lb-ft, on tap between 2,500 and 3,500 rpm. The combination of the ultra-powerful 4.0-liter V8 with the BRABUS B40-700 performance upgrade, the nine-speed SPEEDSHIFT TCT transmission and permanent all-wheel drive delivers driving performance figures that normally seem more realistic for a sports car than an off-roader. From rest, the 4×4 based on the new G 63 shoots to 62 mph in just 4.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km/h (149 mph) to protect the tires.

Like all other BRABUS components, this new performance upgrade comes with the three year or 100,000-km/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty. (See BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions)
