Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG SUV was already a formidable luxury vehicle before it fell into the hands of the twisted minds at Brabus. If the platform didn’t catch your attention before due to its impeccable design and equally-as-enticing power figures, that’s about to change, thanks to the newly-announced 800 Adventure XLP model — a drone-touting take on the Stuttgart-based brand’s flagship.
The BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP arrives as an ultra-exclusive “supercar” that’s been imbued with a menagerie of carbon enhancements, working alongside its upgraded powerplant and bespoke suspension system to give the lavish model an air of off-road readiness. Using state-of-the-art design and engineering software, the company has opted to include an all-new pickup bed behind the main cabin of the SUV, allowing it to utilize a specialized module for an electrically powered hi-tech drone to take flight. The unmanned Wingcopter can reach speeds of up to 150 miles-per-hour, gifting owners and rescue outfits the ability to deliver aid supplies and special equipment in dangerous, remote areas. But that’s nothing compared to the Adventure XLP’s 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 BRABUS 800 PowerXtra engine, which boasts an indomitable 789 horsepower, and 737 lb-ft of torque. Inside, an aesthetically-pleasing burned-oak fine leather interior, courtesy of the company’s in-house upholstery team, rounds things out. The 800 Adventure XLP will debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show and will cost buyers an estimated $626,000+ upon release.
