Brabus Shows Off More Of 4×4² Adventure, In Case Anyone Missed It

Over the years, Mercedes-Benz have managed to transform the G-Class from a no-nonsense all-terrain vehicle, to something that’s more of a cultural icon/fashion statement.

In their efforts, they went from AMG-powered models, all the way to something like the G63 AMG 6×6, a six-wheeled beast that might as well live on Mars than somewhere with an infrastructure.

Their latest creation however was slightly more sensible than the 6×6, yet still bonkers in its own right. We’re talking of course about the G500 4×4², powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, good for 422 PS and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft).

Earlier this year in Geneva, Brabus also launched the G550 Adventure, an even more rugged version of the regular G500 4×4², with more power and even more off-roading ability.

The G550 Adventure puts down 550 PS (542 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft), enough to take this three tonne SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.7 seconds.

It’s also got underbody protection, a winch, hood scoop, extra lighting units and an electronically adjustable suspension – pretty much everything you’d need if you were a Jurassic World employee.

    Yea but all of this can be taken down by a prius so… no thanks.

    • Jay

      Okay, I know it can happen to any SUV but its just more embarrassing when it costs that much and looks so intimidating..

    • LWOAP

      It’s not meant to be fast in a straight line and the thing weighs three tons.

        Not that kind of taken down. There was an article posted here about one getting hit by a prius and the g-wagon tipped over..

        • LWOAP

          Oh, in that case it must have been top heavy or something,

            I guess you didn’t read all of what I said.

  • I’ll have both this and the 6×6. Take my money, Brabus.
