Brabus 900 XLP limited to 10 examples
The Mercedes-AMG G63 is already a beast in its own right, but Brabus has other ideas in mind.
Brabus not only turned the SUV into a pick-up truck, but it's also packing an even greater punch. Behold, the Brabus 900 XLP.
This is the German tuning company's follow-up to the 800 Adventure XLP revealed two years ago. Brabus made the G63 117mm wider, 688mm longer, and has 487mm of ground clearance thanks to its portal axles.
In the looks department, the 900 XLP features exposed carbon fiber elements on the fenders, the grille, and the wind deflector in the roof rack that houses four auxiliary LED lights. In addition, the pick-up has been fitted with a 10,000-lb rated electric winch for recovery duties on the trail, while 22-inch Brabus Monoblock Z forged wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion ATR tires complete the menacing look.
On the inside, the pick-up truck has a black and anodized red-themed interior with blue contrast lighting. The cabin features special Brabus details found on the seats, the headrest, and the pedals.
As mentioned, the 900 XLP was made more powerful than the AMG G63, and now packs 900 PS and 1,250 Nm of torque from its Brabus Rocket 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. To protect the 9-speed automatic transmission from the engine's immense power, the torque is electronically limited to 1,050 Nm.
It's a 4x4 that could do 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. However, because the 900 XLP is wearing 22-inch all-terrain tires, the pick-up's top speed is limited to 210 km/h.
Would you like one of these? Well, the Brabus 900 XLP is only limited to 10 units, and costs EUR 658,625 (PHP 36.3-million) a pop. That is, of course, excluding import duties and taxes.
