It’s Brabus’ job to take an already sumptuous SUV and make it even more so. To begin with, the AMG G63 is no longer an SUV, but rather a pickup truck. If this seems familiar, it’s because the Bottrop tuner released the 800 Adventure XLP in early 2020. The wild truck has back, and this time it’s even more powerful than before. After all, at “only” 789 horsepower, its predecessor was significantly underpowered.
The V8’s displacement has been increased to 4.4 litres, and the two turbochargers have been replaced by Brabus’ own set. Because the pickup conversion came with a longer wheelbase, a bespoke exhaust system had to be built, not necessarily to extract more power, but out of necessity. With the new engine, the crazy truck now produces 888 horsepower (662 kW) and 922 lb-ft of torque (1,250 Nm). To protect the drivetrain’s lifespan, torque is electronically restricted at 774 lb-ft (1,050 Nm).
Because of the larger engine, the G63 will sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds and peak out at a limited 130 mph (210 km/h) due to the all-terrain tyres. Brabus’ 22-inch forged wheels with dramatic red highlights contained under the bulging fender flares with an exposed carbon fibre finish are covered in chunky Pirelli Scorpion ATR rubber measuring 325/55 R22.
The 900 XLP has a huge ground clearance of 19.2 inches (49 centimetres) after portal axles are installed, making it a true go-anywhere vehicle. Brabus enlarged the body by 4.6 inches (11.6 cm), while the entire length increased by 27.1 inches (68.9 cm) to an impressive 209 inches (5.31 metres). If you like numbers, that winch is good for pulling up to 9,921 lbs (4,500 kg).
To the surprise of no one, the whole package costs a small fortune, especially once you factor in the limited availability. The Brabus 900 XLP “One of Ten” is offered for an eye-watering €658,625 or nearly $690,000 at current exchange rates.
