Captured recently on tape is this extended Mercedes-Benz G55. Enhanced by Brabus, it features revised headlights, bumpers and chrome trim. Done in black with black tint, it looks like a limousine that has the guts to go anywhere. And even though it’s powered by a 6.3-liter V8 in this case, one cannot expect any G-Class, with its barn-like aerodynamics, to get up and go. But that large engine will be put to good use in this particular vehicle, as you’d have to be cross-eyed not to notice the extra sheetmetal (and weight) that was added after the rear doors.
As you’ll notice, the rear wheel arches don’t cut into the doors anymore, but the beautiful side exhausts still manifest themselves just in front of the rear wheels. Being a Brabus product, it’s safe to assume that the interior has added luxury appointments that we don’t get to see.
There have been DIY stretch jobs of the rugged G-Class before, but Brabus has taken this job to another level, looking very much like a factory effort. Which is what we have come to expect from this premier Mercedes-Benz tuner.
