This year at Geneva Motor Show, Brabus unveiled the most powerful offroader. – the Brabus 800 Widestar.
Powered by a V12 bi-turbo engine, this special Mercedes G – or 800 Widestar features 800bhp, 23-inch rims and the Widestar bodykit seen on the previous G V12 S.
All those horses come from the same V12 bi-turbo engine, that can comfortably operate at full throttle from 5,500 rpm. The huge torque levels, 1,420 Nm, are achieved close to idle, at just 2,100 rpm. Widestar 800 is still capable of 0-100km/h in just 4.0 seconds and an electronically (and some would say dynamically) limited top speed of 240km/h.
The front axle is fitted with six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and vented discs with a diameter of 380 millimeters (15.0 inches). The rear stops on four-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 345-mm discs (13.6 inches).
Additionally the BRABUS Ride Control suspension features automatic damper adjustment. When the vehicle sensors detect that certain parameters such as speed, lateral acceleration and steering angle might lead to a critical situation the system automatically switches to the firmer sport setting within milliseconds. The sportier damper setup further increases the directional stability of the 4×4. The CAN control unit also detects a return to a more moderate driving style. It then automatically switches the shock absorbers back to the comfort position.
The engine peripherals now include an entirely new intake system and the BRABUS 800 bi-turbo system with two special manifolds with integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers, and four water-to-air intercoolers. This ensemble is joined by a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system custom-developed for the BRABUS 800. It features free-flow metal catalysts and four chrome tailpipes that exit in pairs in front of both rear wheels.
Inside, 800 Widestar is very exclusive. The equipment list includes an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, a speedometer with 280-km/h (182-mph) dial and stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo.
The BRABUS interior is custom-tailored to suit the individual owner’s taste and the especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara is available in a multitude of colors. Customers can also choose from various upholstery designs and the wood trim can be manufactured in any desired color. Upon request the wood elements can even be finished in the especially exclusive yachting design.
