The Brabus Mercedes-AMG G63 Is Just In Time For Valentine’s DayGiancarlo Perlas February 8, 2023
The new all-red Mercedes-AMG G63 of Brabus may be late for Christmas but it’s just in time for Valentine’s Day. Now rechristened as the Brabus 800, this high-performance G-Class is also packing more output thanks to a major tune in its system.
Here are the key features of the new Brabus 800 based on the AMG G63:
The Brabus 800 truly stands out with its Widestar body kit dominated by satin red with black accents. It features new parts including a revised front grille with the “B” logo, hood with twin vents, twin LED lights mounted on the roof above the windshield, front bumper with bigger intakes on the side, extended wheel arches, wider side steps, Forgiato wheels, and three pairs of exhaust pipes on each side.
Meanwhile, going around the back reveals that the spare wheel cover has been deleted, which may be a bad move on the part of the tuner.
The cabin of the AMG G63 mirrors its exterior theme with its blood-red ceiling, side panels, dashboard, seat covers, and steering wheel wrap. The leather surfaces are adorned with diamond quilting and a starlight headliner that complements the auto’s ambient lighting system.
As its name hints, the Brabus 800 puts 800 ps (789 hp) to the output of the AMG G63’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine. This is made possible by tweaks in the ECU, new sports exhausts, and other upgrades.
The resulting 0 to 62 mph sprint of the tuning package for the roided G-Class is 3.1 seconds. Likewise, the set of upgrades boosts the top speed of the AMG G63 to 200 mph.
