Brabus is making the Mercedes-AMG G63 even more opulent by applying a custom body kit.
As if the G Class wasn’t already ostentatious, at the beginning of last year Mercedes-Benz introduced a “Crazy Color” option for the G63 & G65 AMGs. One of the colors available is Solar Beam ($17.318 / €15.348) applied on this G63 which is even more opulent after Brabus installed its Widestar kit. Among the changes we mention the vented hood with a carbon fiber central area and a beefier front bumper with bigger air intakes and an extra set of LED daytime running lights.
Brabus also installed massive 23-inch forged wheels with Yokohama rubbers, custom headlights with a black tint, roof-mounted rear spoiler, and vented rear fenders. The interior has also received the aftermarket treatment with illuminated door sills, black leather upholstery with yellow stitching, Alcantara headliner, and a sportier pedal set.
It wouldn’t be a complete tuning program without some optimizations underneath the hood where the 5.5-liter V8 has been upgraded from 571 horsepower (420 kilowatts) to 700 hp (515 kW). There’s no word about the torque figure of this particular vehicle, but we checked the tuner’s website and found out the package for the G63 bumps torque to 709 pound-feet (960 newton meters) from the standard 561 lb-ft (760 Nm).
The extra punch cuts the 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint by half a second to just 4.9 seconds, while top speed increases by 19 mph (30 kph) to 149 mph (240 kph). That’s not too shabby for a vehicle that weighs a hefty 5,621 pounds (2,550 kilograms).
