Mercedes-Benz G-Class by Brabus

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the defunct short wheelbase three-door version, is my favorite car ever. I’m happy to announce that Brabus has developed an upgrade kit for the Mercedes, and looking at the pictures below I have to say they’ve done one hell of a job.

Mercedes gave up the SWB G-Class back in 2011, but that doesn’t make the vehicle  less desirable or cool, which is why the reputable German tuner decide to its thing with the three-door G-Wagen. The car Brabus fiddled around with is actually one of the last short wheelbase G-Class units ever to roll out of the Mercedes production line, a G500 BA3 Final Edition – which is now riding on massive 22-inch nine-spoke Monoblock E alloys.

You can easily spot the Brabus Widestar body kit, providing the short G-Class that aggressive stance. The red and black leather interior completes the luxurious and exclusive look Brabus always pulls off, easily. I’m sad to say that details about the engine are not available at this time, but notice the “6.1” lettering. This can only meanthe displacement of the V8 engine has increased from 5.5 to 6.1 which should translate into more fun and a serious  power boost over the series 388 HP (285 kW) and 530 Nm (391 lb-ft).
