This Souped-Up Super SUV Is the Toughest G-Wagen Ever
An off-road tank that might be the baddest Benz of all time.
The same German tuning house that conjured up the 540-horsepower G550 4×4² and world’s fastest street-legal convertible has created one of the most menacing G-Wagens we’ve ever seen.
Don’t let its bright white palette fool you—Brabus has made a monster out of a 2018 Mercedes-AMG G63 in creating the 700 4×4² “Final Edition.”
As the name suggests, this is Brabus’ last take on that model year. AMG’s twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 has been given a performance upgrade that increases power from just under 550 hp to 700 hp, making the super-SUV a five-second car. Plus, the engine’s gold-sheathed intakes look totally dope.
But what’s truly special about the Brabus 700 Final Edition—other than the fact that only ten will be produced—is its off-road capability. Upgraded portal axles and an electronically adjustable suspension give it almost two feet of ground clearance.
Motor 1 has further details:
Brabus adds skid plates and a whopping big roof spoiler with a bank of lights fitted at the windshield.
It rides on black five-star wheels with meaty Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires, which are part of the reason why Brabus electronically limits the 700 to a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
Comfort, Sport, Off-Road and Individual drive modes can be selected from a custom touchscreen, the latter of which allows upgraded dampers on the rear and front axles to be adjusted separately.
Lastly, Brabus offers countless interior designs, including a swath of colored leathers, fine woods and carbon fiber finishes installed by the company’s in-house upholstery shop.
With a $236,000 price tag, the Brabus 700 4×4² Final Edition costs over $85,000 more than the stock Mercedes-AMG G63 it’s based on. If you want to ride in ultra-exclusive company, it’s totally worth it.
