Released under the Brabus Adventure label, the pack upgrades the G-Wagen’s already impressive off-road capability with a series of tweaks, without forgetting about the looks.
The package sees the G-Class receive the 100-mm (4-in) Brabus Widestar widebody treatment, with the fender flares giving enough room for maneuver for the 20-inch Monoblock R wheels shod with maximum-traction off-road tires sized 285/55 R20. For emergencies, there’s a fifth wheel of the same specification hooked to the pivoted spare wheel carrier with carbon cover.
The suspension was developed to increase ground clearance by a further 40 mm (1.6 in) thanks to height-adjustable Brabus Adventure sport springs compatible with the stock electronically-controlled suspension.
Other features that turn the G-Class into an ideal vehicle for overlanding include the winch at the front, carbon skid plates, wind deflector above the windshield housing four LED auxiliary headlamps, a robust luggage rack on the roof, and a ladder at the rear that facilitates loading and unloading. The Brabus Adventure pack also includes a custom front fascia, custom bonnet and bumpers, as well as running boards illuminated at night by LED lights integrated into the fender flares.
As with most customers, Brabus believes the best engine for an overlanding-prepped G-Class is the 3.0-liter straight-six turbodiesel in the G 350 d, which is why the tuner has given it some vitamins. The Brabus Eco PowerXtra D35 upgrade increases the maximum output by 44 PS (43 hp) and peak torque by 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) for a total of 330 PS (326 hp) at 4,400 rpm and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque at 2,500 rpm.
The driving performance is adjusted accordingly: the off-roader now needs 7.2 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and the top speed increases to 202 km/h (126 mph).
The upgraded diesel is available with an all-stainless Brabus sport exhaust system with two chrome tailpipes on each side of the vehicle. Finally, the interior is modified as well with quilted fine leather and Alcantara appointments, aluminum trim, and many other goodies.
The Brabus Adventure range is available for all variants of the current Mercedes G-Class.
