It is no track weapon, but it might just be the ultimate daily driver. One thing is for sure, not much will be passing the Brabus ROCKET 900 on the Autobahn.
Base price for the A35 in South Africa sits at R755,198 so the kit costs just as much as the car.
Not only did they add a pickup bed but also cranked the twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 to 789 hp (588 kW) and 1,000 Nm of torque.
This SUV sprints to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and will top out at a governed 280 km/h.
The package is called PowerXtra B 35 tuning kit and, as can be expected, turns the standard Merc up to eleven.
This Brabus offering is not about performance but more for the individuals out there who like to travel in ultimate comfort and style.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe packs more than enough grunt from the factory but the BRABUS boys and girls are of a different opinion.
Brabus call it a “heavy-duty off-road supercar,” and thanks to portal axles packs an enormous 600 mm (23.6 in) ground clearance.
As the name suggests, this will be the last Brabus build for the old G-Class. Only 10 are slated for production, with prices starting at €209,000.
The turbocharged 2.0-litre engine developed by Merc has been massaged to deliver an additional 46 horsepower 80 Nm of torque.
