Brabus 800 Widestar

Brabus and Mercedes-Benz go together like gasoline and combustion. So when Benz revamped their legendary G-Class SUV, Brabus was right on their heels with a performance kit that immediately upped the ante. From the look of it, however, it wasn’t enough for the tuning brand, as they’ve just unveiled another upgrade kit called the Brabus 800 Widestar.

In classic fashion, this new edition looks both more refined and somehow more aggressive — both inside and out. That’s thanks in large part to a lot of carbon fiber additions across the body in conjunction with a stunning premium quilted leather interior — marked by an illuminated headliner resembling a starry sky (not unlike those found in Bentleys). But the real star of the show is under the hood: a 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine that’s been tuned up to a whopping 780 horsepower and 737 foot-pounds of torque. That means this AWD beast has an electronically-limited top speed of 149 mph and can do 0-62 in just 4.1 seconds — blistering by any account. We can’t say for certain, but this might just be the tuner’s magnum opus.
