As the name suggests, it’s a souped-up G63 that boasts 700PS (690hp) and a wide body kit, among many other things. Thanks to the B40-700 performance upgrade, Brabus has squeezed an extra 115PS (114hp) from the Mercedes-AMG G63’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, for a total of 700PS (690hp) at 6,100 rpm.
Peak torque also rises from 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) to 950 Nm (701 lb-ft), available between 2,500 and 3,500 rpm.
Linked to the nine-speed Speedshift TCT transmission and permanent all-wheel-drive system, the powerful V8 thrusts the Brabus 700 Widestar from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds.
The top speed is limited electronically to 240 km/h (149 mph) to protect the tires. All attempts to hit the official performance figures will be met by a throaty V8 sound courtesy of the sports exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flaps.
The German tuner makes sure the 700 Widestar doesn’t go unnoticed thanks to a beefier kit that includes 100-mm wider wheel arches, forged wheels ranging from 20 to 23 inches, stainless steel exhausts on either side, wider bumpers, and a roof-mounted wing. In true Brabus tradition, the front part of the roof also hosts an auxiliary light bar.
As for the interior, Brabus can tailor it to the customer’s wishes, offering an array of Mastik leather and Alcantara appointments available in a wide color palette. The wood and carbon fiber trim are also offered in many colors and designs.
The vehicle on display in Monaco features a two-tone all-leather interior combining vanilla and black, with the seat center sections made of perforated Mastik leather in shell-shaped quilting. The orange piping and vanilla-colored seams bring a touch of color to the cabin.
