Brabus 800 Widestar based on Mercedes G-Class

The BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR is considered to be the world's most powerful off-roader delivering a rated power output of 800HP at 5,500 rpm and an even more impressive peak torque of 1,420 Nm and integrating a twelve-cylinder bi-turbo high-caapcity engine. Judging by the exterior appearance, the vehicle manages to set itself apart with the 23-inch BRABUS "PLATINUM EDITION" forged wheels and the WIDESTAR wide-body equipment. The five-door vehicle was based on the current Mercedes G-Class and it is available to its customers with an extensive luxury equipment package. The enormous power is possible because of the increased displacement of the three-valve engine from 5.5 to 6.3 liters with the help of larger pistons and corresponding cylinder bore. Exemplary smoothness together with a perfect interaction of all new components are ensured by precision mapping for engine electronics, thus resulting in low emissions and maximum power yield. Only 4.0 seconds are necessary for the BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR to reach a 0-100 km/h sprint, featuring a reinforced five-speed automatic transmission and permanent four-wheel drive, offering an impressive driving performance. Its maximum speed is of 240 km/h when electronically limited, but it could easily achieve 270 km/h without the limiter, thus announcing high-performance and driving pleasure. The body width receives 12 cm thanks to the powerfully shaped fender flares, while a high recognition value is provided by strikingly styled door moldings. A wide range of custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations with diameters between 20 and 23 inches is offered by BRABUS to the owner of the wide-body version, which is to be found available for all regular five-door G-Class models.
The engine and front brakes receive cooling air through generously dimensioned air inlets, while the lift on the front axle was reduced by the sophisticated contour. The vehicle draws a lot of attention with its BRABUS LED daytime running lights below the main headlamps. The WIDESTAR rear bumper features a centrally mounted reflector and a fog lamp and backup light on either side, while an excellent ride comfort and sporty handling are delivered by the innovative BRABUS Ride Control smooth-ride suspension, featuring automatic damper adjustment. The BRABUS high-performance brake system represents another active safety feature with a cockpit that is exclusive and individual. The interior meets the individual owner's taste with especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara, which is available in numerous colors.
