Mercedes G63 AMG gets the Brabus treatment – blue and red are on point image

The well known aftermarket specialist has decided to have another go at the G63 AMG. We’re talking here about an ex-military vehicle using the dated body-on-frame construction and coming in almost unchanged after four decades.

But the iconic G-Wagen is among the darlings of the tuning industry. And as such, Brabus, almost an in-house tuner for Mercedes, has decided to boast its three best credentials in one package. They are known for having gold engines, incredible power levels and also the best leather. We’re talking here about the new Widestar G700, which comes in an owner specified metallic blue paint, while Brabus has had its way fitting a new grille, bumpers, skirts, wheels and lights. Numerous components have been made out of carbon, such as the humongous hood scoop tasked to bring in more air for the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.

By the way, like we said before, this incredible piece of automotive history even has crafted gold components and a carbon cover with the Brabus logo when you look under the hood. You’de be doing that to see what monster lurks in there, as the Brabus tuned version of the AMG engine (a tuner’s tuning, we may say) has been massaged to deliver 700 horsepower – which is most likely the reason for those 23-inch wheels to be wrapped in Yokohama tires. The cabin boasts red leather but no other parts have been left unchanged as well – even the trunk features red cowhide, while the driver gets aluminum pedals, sporty new paddles and carbon fiber on the central tunnel.
