Brabus is no stranger to tuning already-powerful Mercedes-Benzes. In fact, one of their most favorite models to trick out is the G-Class. From its boxy looks, to powerful engines that can produce upwards of 500 PS or more, Brabus is a master when it comes to unleashing more power and torque.
Now, Brabus' latest project sees them giving the all-new G-Class a hefty upgrade in both the looks and power department. Say hello to the 2020 Brabus Blacks Ops 800 and Shadow 800, two super SUVs that look mean and fast.
From its namesake, both the Black Ops 800 and Shadow 800 generate 800 horsepower along with a whopping 1,000 Nm of torque from a highly-tuned 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8. With it, the two super SUVs can sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in as little as 4.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically-limited to 240 km/h.
As for its looks, Brabus gave the two SUVs some serious blacked-out finishings. Despite having different names, the Black Ops and Shadow come with a Widestar wide bodykit, along with 23-inch Platinum Forged alloy wheels wrapped in 305/35/R23 tires.
Both also come with an aftermarket hood, new front bumper, as well as a uniquely-painted front grill with red accents. Finally, elements of carbon fiber were also put to make the two stylish and lightweight at the same time.
Curious about its interior? Brabus did not waste any time giving the Black Ops and Shadow some new upholstery. Black-gray leather covers all of the seats, and is accented by red contrast stitching which can be seen throughout the cabin. Embossed 'Brabus' logos can also be seen all over the interior, while the A-pillars are finished in Alcantara for a more luxurious look and feel.
Thinking of getting either one? Better act fast as both the Black Ops and Shadow specials are limited to only 10 examples. However, this is not the first time Brabus has launched 800 horsepower SUVs. Back in 2014, Brabus unleashed the first 800 special. Instead of a bi-turbo V8 however, the very first 800 came with a stonking 6.0-liter, twin-turbo V12.
Goes to show that despite losing four cylinders, Brabus is still capable of cranking out lots of horsepower from a smaller V8 five years after the original 800 debuted.
