BRABUS has presented the “BRABUS 800 Black & Gold Edition” model, which is based on the current Mercedes-AMG G 63 and is said to be particularly distinguished by its exquisite equipment. The 588 kW / 800 PS and 1,000 Nm engine also offers enough power to reach the 100 km / h mark in 4.1 seconds.
BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION
In keeping with the name of the special model, the body of the BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION is painted black. There are also gold-colored brake calipers and gold-colored BRABUS emblems and lettering to match the interior. The appearance of the vehicle is also characterized by the BRABUS WIDESTAR wide version. It makes the current G-model appear even more powerful and makes this exclusive off-road vehicle ten centimeters wider than the production car. In addition to the flared fenders, this body conversion also includes special aprons at the front and rear, which give this super sports car an even more dynamic design. This also includes the side air outlets behind the front fender flares in this matt black version as well as the middle parts of the front and rear aprons, which are also painted matt black.
The BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION also contains individual accents such as the two gold-colored struts in the radiator grille or the design elements made of shiny carbon fiber such as the bonnet attachment or the LED light element above the windshield. The widening of this body provides space for the forged BRABUS Monoblock Y light alloy wheels “PLATINUM EDITION” in the 11Jx23 king-size format. These bicycles with nine spokes that taper towards the outer rim in the shape of a “Y” are painted gold to correspond to the type designation and marked as a high-quality forged wheel with a “GOLD PLATINUM” badge on the outer horn. The high-performance tires 305/35 R 23 Advan Sport come from BRABUS technology partner YOKOHAMA.
INTERIOR WITH BLACK LEATHER WITH GOLD COLOR ELEMENTS
The interior designers at Refiner also designed a particularly exclusive BRABUS interior made of fine leather for this super sports car. Matching the body painting, black leather dominates the interior, which was accentuated with gold-colored BRABUS labels and numerous elements such as control elements, ventilation nozzles, loudspeaker grilles or gold-glazed panels. This noble interior also shows the attention to detail in the BRABUS upholstery shop: A typical example of this is the shell-shaped quilting of the seats and parts of the door panels. All these leather parts are also perforated with millimeter precision and also fascinate with the gold-colored fabric that shimmers through the perforation and thus lives the motto BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION down to the smallest detail.
High-gloss sealed carbon plates in the cockpit underline the sporty design of this special model. Other exclusive BRABUS elements in the interior are the aluminum pedals and door locking pins as well as the stainless steel door sill trims with the illuminated BRABUS logo. In the rear, the standard rear bench seat has been replaced by the BRABUS interior designers with two individual seats with numerous comfort functions such as multi-contour adjustment, memory and integrated seat ventilation and heating.
Between the two rear seats there is space for the BRABUS center console, which was specially developed for the current G-Class and, true to the BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION label, has been provided with black leather and gold-colored elements. It not only serves as a comfortable armrest for the rear passengers: the BRABUS Touch Control Panel in 4.3-inch format was used at the top with optimal range, showing a clock with a BRABUS 800 image in standby mode. This innovative control element not only controls various seat functions in the rear, but also enables the front passenger seat to be controlled, in particular to provide more legroom.
The standard COMAND system of the G-Class can also be accessed via this panel. The sound system can be turned down or up or muted from behind. This control element can also be used to control the reading lamps and the starry sky in the roof lining. A smartphone or tablet can be connected to the COMAND system via a USB multimedia interface, which is conveniently connected to the top of the console, and, of course, can also be supplied with charging power. Two cup holders cool or heat the drinks of the rear passengers. Another important feature of the console is the integrated safe compartment. Only after entering a code on the touch control panel does this drawer open electrically to the front.
800 HP FOR THE 4-LITER-8-CYLINDER-BI-TURBO
The BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION special model impresses not only with its exciting appearance and exclusive functions, but also with its pure high performance. After installing two high-performance turbochargers and other modifications, the four-liter eight-cylinder biturbo engine BRABUS 800 has a peak output of 588 kW / 800 hp at 6,600 rpm to disposal.
The new BRABUS super sports car catapults itself from standstill to 100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km / h. The sports exhaust system made of stainless steel BRABUS with two black chrome-plated tailpipes in side pipe design on each side of the vehicle offers electronically controlled sound management with a discrete “Coming Home” mode or a sporty V8 sound thanks to the integrated flap control.
The BRABUS 800 BLACK & GOLD EDITION is offered at a recommended retail price from 453,000 euros (price including 19 percent VAT in Germany).
