Brabus’ Newest Mercedes Stars Descend Upon The Swiss Alps

It seems like almost all major European tuners have bought themselves real estate at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, where the likes of Brabus always show up with a full range of ultra powerful and aggressive-looking cars.

This year is no different, with the German aftermarket specialist putting some of its newest creations on display, most of which have been unveiled this year – like the 850 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5.” or the 800 Widestar, based on the second-gen G63.

Brabus B25

We’re going to throw the B25 into the mix too, because it was unveiled just 4 months ago. At its core, this is a Mercedes A250 hatchback, albeit with some aerodynamic improvements like the two-piece front spoiler, diffuser insert, quad exhausts or the sizable roof spoiler. Meanwhile, inside there are stainless-steel scuff plates with a blacklit Brabus logo, aluminum pedals and velour floor mats.

As of right now, the only power kit available is the PowerXtra B25 S, which gives your A 250 hatchback an additional 45 PS and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft) of torque for a total of 270 PS (267 HP) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) – that’s 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) more than you get in the Mercedes-AMG A35.

In a straight line, the Brabus B25 can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds, before maxing out at an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph).

Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition

Talk about a fairy tale sendoff for the previous-generation G-Class! This limited edition brute is priced at a whopping $550,000, and features a more powerful 6.0-liter eight cylinder engine, as opposed to the old 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8.

It puts down 850 PS (838 HP) and 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft), and can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, despite having a massive 600 mm (23.6 inch) ground clearance and being as aerodynamic as a brick.

Mods include the front and rear skid plates, large carbon fiber fender flares, 22-inch wheels with Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires, a roof spoiler, additional daytime running lights, hood scoop, custom logos and an all-leather interior with blue inserts and a 2+2 seating arrangement.

Brabus 800 Widestar

The 800 Widestar made its official debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, bringing with it a series of improvements over the 700 Widestar version.

Compared to a stock Mercedes-AMG G63 model, the 800 Widestar boasts an extra 215 PS (212 HP) and 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) of torque, whereas compared to the 700 Widestar, is packs an additional 100 PS (99 HP) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft). Now, the grand total is 800 PS (789 HP) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. This allows for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of just 4.1 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 240 km/h (149 mph).

Cosmetic mods include the wide-body kit, 23-inch wheels, custom stainless steel exhaust, redesigned front and rear fascias, additional LED lights, a roof spoiler, naked carbon spare wheel cover, full leather interior and more.

Brabus Ultimate E Shadow

Did you ever think that at one point in time a tuner would have you choose between spending nearly $74,000 on a Smart ForTwo or on let’s say, a Porsche 718 Boxster S?

Whether or not you did, that choice exists and it’s because of the new Ultimate E Shadow edition Smart ForTwo EQ Cabriolet. Granted, the Brabus-tuned city car is fully electric, putting down 92 PS (91 HP) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque. That makes for a modest gain of 10 PS and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) over the stock version, resulting in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 10.9 seconds and a top speed that remains limited to 130 km/h (81 mph).

Visual changes include wider fenders, custom spoilers, rear diffuser, rocker panels, 18-inch wheels, recalibrated suspension and a more luxurious interior with red leather, carbon fiber and aluminum trim, custom scuff plates and a “1 of 28” plaque on the dashboard.

The German tuner’s Geneva stand also includes a bunch of other customized Mercedes products, among them the Maybach S650-based Brabus 900.
