Brabus takes a bold move by transforming the Mercedes-Benz G-Class model into a bulky road beast with improved engine, suspension, transmission, and interior—the Brabus G V12 S Biturbo, which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
The base engine of the Brabus G V12 S Biturbo is patterned after the Mercedes G Class engine. The Brabus engineers took the V12 bi-turbo engine and upgraded the 5.5-liter to a 6-3-liter power machine. The improved engine also comes with bigger cylinders and turbochargers, a high performance exhaust system, which comes with free-flowing metal catalysts) and a specialized crankshaft.
The upgraded and powerful engine, added to a five-speed automatic transmission, has an impressive 690 horsepower and 973 lb-ft of torque. The Brabus G V12 S Biturbo accelerates at 62 mph in only 4.3 seconds. However, the speed is electronically limited at 150 mph tops.
The exterior reeks of the sporty, outdoor look complete with its flashy wheels and LED headlights for daytime driving, located below the main lamps. The ergonomically-shaped steering wheel also offers a sporty feel, as well as the speedometer, stainless-steel scuff plates and its impressive leather seats. The Mercedes-Look is still there, but… not really!
The Brabus G V12 S Biturbo is expected to carry the price tag of €379,000, which is obviously pretty sick high. This rate includes the exclusive Brabus front exterior. Brabus also announced that they can transform the Brabus G V12 S Biturbo into an “office on wheels” by request, adding to it the latest communication technology such as a game console, eight-inch LCD screens attached at the back of the front seat headrests, and a DVD changer.
