Brabus Announces V12-Powered G-Class

Brabus GV12 6

Seeing as there's no Mercedes-AMG G65 any more, what can rich people do to get their hands on a V12-powered G-Class? Head to Brabus, obviously.

Meet the G V12 900 by Brabus. With a twin-turbocharged V12 engine delivering 662 kW and 1 200 Nm, this has to be one of the fastest Mercedes-Benz G-Class vehicles around. 

Brabus took the existing 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged V12 and did extensive work on it. Displacement increased to 6.3 litres and there are bigger turbochargers as well as custom exhaust manifolds, a new intake manifold, custom air filter box and a stainless steel active exhaust. All that shove goes to all 4 wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Brabus claims its G V12 900 can accelerate to 100 kph in just 3.8 seconds and maxes out at a limited top speed of 280 kph. Brabus has also thrown in a widebody kit and there are 24-inch alloy wheels available. Inside, there's an all leather cabin as well as a carbon fibre engine cover. 

Price? Well, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. Don't worry, we can't afford it either. Before taxes, the bill comes to €605 055 which is just under R10 million. There will be just 10 units made.
