Beneath the skirts, spoilers and so-on this is a regular G500—not a G63—with the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 chipped from 416hp to 493hp. 0-100kph takes 5.7 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 209kph. There’s also a stainless-steel active exhaust with a quiet “Coming Home” mode.
That’s about it for technical mods—the rest are aesthetic. The bumpers are new (the front one apparently reduces lift at speed), there’s a hood scoop, spoiler, massive 23-inch alloy wheels and a carbon fiber light bar. Inside it’s the usual mix of Alcantara, leather and so-on. You can spec whatever and Brabus will do it.
Brabus isn’t talking money, but there’s no way these mods come cheap. So if you want a shoutier, faster G-Class, wouldn’t you just buy an AMG G63 and be done with it?
