Brabus 900 Crawler Is A Ludicrous AMG G63 Buggy With 888 Horsepower

Illegal on public roads, the dune racer costs $793,000.

“What will they come up with next?” That is the question we ask ourselves whenever Brabus releases one of its bizarre products. When the time comes, we’ll be astounded by what the Bottrop engineers have devised. The German tuner has a penchant for crazy G63 projects, and some of its outlandish designs fill gaps that Mercedes won’t. It’s time to meet the “ultimate desert dunes racer” after a pickup truck and a V12.

The Brabus 900 Crawler, which is essentially a hardcore buggy, is one of the most stunning G-Class-based projects we’ve ever seen. It’s on par with Mercedes’ own G63 6×6 and the Maybach G650 Landaulet in terms of insaneness, but it’s not road-legal. Yes, the doorless and windowless G cannot be driven on public roads because the aftermarket specialist refused to make any concessions only to maintain the licence plate.

With a massive ground clearance of 53 centimetres (20.8 inches), the Crawler lives up to its name and should be able to handle just about any challenging terrain. For comparison, the maximum ground clearance of the Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler is only 29.4 cm (11.6 in) and 27.4 cm (10.8 in), respectively.

Brabus built portal axles to improve the vehicle’s go-anywhere capability, similar to previous crazy G designs. To handle harsh terrain, the upgraded suspension includes unique height-adjustable struts with up to 16 cm (6.3 in) of spring travel. It rides on one-piece forged wheels with 40×13.50 R20 off-road tyres and is equipped with 400mm front and 370mm rear disc brakes.

The engine, meanwhile, has been increased in displacement to 4.5 litres. At 6,200 rpm, the twin-turbo V8 produces 888 horsepower (662 kilowatts) and 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft) at 2,900 rpm. To maintain the durability of the nine-speed automatic gearbox, torque is electronically restricted to 1,050 Nm (774 lb-ft). Despite being designed to go off the usual path, the Crawler accelerates from zero to sixty-two miles per hour (100 kilometres per hour) in under 3.4 seconds. Because of its off-road tyres, it can only go 100 mph (160 km/h).

The AMG G63 has dropped a lot of weight after eliminating so many body panels and replacing them with carbon fibre. It’s still a pig, weighing in at 2,065 kilogrammes (4,553 pounds), but keep in mind that the regular car weighs in at 2,485 kilos (5,478 pounds) in European specification. By my calculations, the Crawler has shed 420 kg (926 pounds) of fat. Given Brabus’ addition of portal axles and a tubular frame built of high-strength steel, this is a remarkable achievement.

You’d better sit down for this one in terms of pricing. Before the value-added tax, the Crawler costs €749,000. (VAT). At today’s exchange rates, that amounts to about $793,000. You’ll get four carbon helmets and an intercom system for your money’s worth. Brabus plans to produce only 15 vehicles, with a third of them arriving by the end of the year. Five more will be delivered in 2023, followed by the final five in 2024.
