Meet the new Brabus ML 63 Biturbo, a SUV that is probably quicker and faster than your car.
This is the Brabus ML 63 Biturbo, and it has just been unveiled in Geneva. Based on the Mercedes-Benz AMG ML 63, the SUV gets 478 kW (650 hp), and 850 Nm of torque, which powers the vehicle up to 310 km/h (192 mph).
What is the difference between this and the Brabus Widestar, you ask? Aside from getting the benefit of an extra 100 hp, which reduces the 0-100 km/h time down by 0.7 seconds to 4.2, this vehicle manages a top speed that is 35 km/h faster than the Widestar. All this muscle comes courtesy of a 6.3-liter V8 engine, with two left-turning turbos mounted on the right side. Brabus calls this a custom designed system meant to maximize performance without sacrificing air flow.
The newer SUV also has different 23-inch alloys, and a monotone interior. The interior still primarily utilizes Alcantara, carbon fiber, and leather. This also looks a bit slimmed down, compared to the Widestar. The front-end looks like it was taken in a bit, while wheel arches look like they were reduced in size.
A full Widestar body conversion kit is available for this vehicle. The kit includes appearance touches, like new rocker panels, door trim, rear apron, and quad exhaust. The company claims better handling from the widestar, thanks to custom designed three-piece wheels with forged wells.
This much power and luxury comes at a price. The new Brabus ML 63 Biturbo has a sticker price of €190,602, and we're not sure if that includes tax. You can buy the B63 Biturbo engine separately, but it will set you back €69,800.
