BRABUS G V12 S Biturbo with 700 hp

Brabus specialists have developed the most powerful off-roader in the world. It has as base the latest Mercedes G-Class and it is built by hand. Under the hood it hides a SV12 S displacement engine capable of generating 700 horsepower. The Brabus G V12 S Biturbo also comes with a comprehensive luxury package. The price for the very strong 4x4 starts EUR379.000. The engine has as base the V12 Biturbo used in the latest Mercedes S 600. The displacement of the 3-valve engine is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters using a special crankshaft with longer stroke before being implanted in the engine bay of the G-Class. In the end, the cylinder heads are re-machined and fitted with special camshafts. The margins of the engine were upgraded with larger turbochargers; an optimized inter-cooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts. The results indicate an exemplary smooth-running engine and maximum power yield while meeting the strict limits set by the EURO IV emission norm. The engine produces 700 horsepower and 1.320 Nm of torque. In the car, the peak torque is electronically limited to 1.100 Nm. The output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h 4.3 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 240 km/h. Without the limit, the G-Class model can even reach 260 km/h. All the output is being sent to the wheels through a special 5-speed automatic transmission and permanents four-wheel drive. For perfect handling, the tuner equips the model with a comfortable custom suspension and to keep the incredible performance safely in check at all times the Brabus high-performance brake system comes as standard. The interior of the car is also very exclusive as it includes an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, a speedometer with 280 km/h scale, stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo and a leather interior made by hand from especially soft and breathable Brabus Mastik leather.
