When it comes to certain types of mods, you can easily make a case that they were designed specifically for people who enjoy having their SUVs look as “mean” as possible.
Spotted by Jordii93 in Barcelona and uploaded to Autogespot, this Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG is clearly wearing Brabus‘ B63S 700 Widestar package, which boosts not only the car’s aesthetics, but also its power and torque outputs.
Visually speaking, the wide-body kit is hard to miss. Compared to the regular GL 63 AMG, the fenders on the Brabus version are extended by 80 mm (3.1 in), the front and rear bumpers are different, the exhaust tips are new and inside you get Brabus-specific trim and upholstery.
Before it became the GLS, the GL was packing 557 PS (550 HP) and 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) in 63 AMG form. Brabus then raised those numbers up to 700 PS (690 HP) and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft), resulting in an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) and a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of 4.6 seconds.
Considering how this car weighs around 2,580 kg (5,687 lbs), the fact that it will go that fast in a straight line and accelerate to 100 km/h as fast as a Porsche 718 Cayman S makes for a very strong selling point. If you don’t take issue with the styling, that is.
