Brabus has developed an upgrade kit for the defunct short wheelbase three-door G-Class.

Mercedes-Benz phased out the SWB G-Class back in 2011 but that hasn't stopped the reputable German tuner from doing its thing with the three-door G-Wagen. The car used by Brabus is actually one of the last short wheelbase G-Class units ever made, a G500 BA3 Final Edition which is now riding on massive 22-inch nine-spoke Monoblock E alloys.

It also wears Brabus' typical Widestar body kit to provide the short G-Class with a more aggressive stance while the opulent red and black leather interior completes the look. Details about the engine are not available at this point but given the "6.1" lettering it can only mean the displacement of the V8 engine has increased from 5.5 to 6.1 which has certainly provided a healthy power boost over the series 388 HP (285 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft).
