Brabus swaps an M275 V12 turbo into a G to create the most powerful Merc SUV yet, 800 widestar
This is the type of thing Brabus does best. Do an awesome motor swap and make it look like it was from the factory. The 800 Widestar is the newest Brabus G and the most powerful Mercedes SUV they have built. Yes, 800 is for 800 horsepower. This improves upon the previous ~700 horsepower in their V12 S G-wagon. Displacement of the V12 twin turbo taken from the S600 is increased from 5.5 liters to 6.3 with a custom crank and internals. The heads are also worked over to improve flow.
In addition to what is done under the hood the, interior is custom tailored. The exterior of course receives the Widestar body kit. Wheels are 23 inches wearing 305/35/23 rubber. The Brabus smooth ride suspension is included allowing the driver to set suspension settings from the cabin. A big brake kit rounds it out, very impressive.

V12 Biturbo in a G-wagon! Oh wow.. Just, wow. How I would love to own one of these beauties and mess with people minds. SUVs are not supposed to be fast, this one sure will be though!
