…It’s Tuner Tuesday: BRABUS V12 Biturbo G-Wagon?

BRABUS V12 Biturbo G-Wagon

The formula isn’t difficult (big vehicle + powerful motor = WIN) and the end result isn’t beautiful, but for BRABUS, they’re hoping that beauty is in the eye (and right foot) of the beholder.

That’s because BRABUS is calling their V12, Biturbo G-Wagon “the world’s most powerful off-roader”, and with 690 hp and 973 lb-ft of torque on tap, I’m inclined to believe them.

To reach those monster power numbers, they yanked out the stock power plant and replacing it with the V12 from a S600 that was then bored and stroked to a rather healthy 6.3-liter displacement. Add to that mix custom-tailored BRABUS Monoblock wheels, subtle fender flairs, a new suspension, a redone interior, and all of the other bits and pieces that come with a half million dollar redesign, and you’ve got yourself an SUV that will take you to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds with style and luxury to spare.

…The G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RS is fast?

G-Power BMW M5 Hurricane RS

What has four doors, two superchargers, a V10, and goes 228.4 mph?

If you answered G-Power’s BMW M5 Hurricane RS, then you’d be correct! (And you’d probably work for G-Power as well.)

The company set its sights on the Brabus CLS ‘Rocket’, which was the previous record holder for four-door cars with a top speed of 227.23 mph, and says that they can get even more power from the car by increasing the boost from the twin chargers.

It’s not like the car will ever see anything even close to that on public roads, since the company had to take the car to a test track to reach the monster numbers, but I guess it’s good to know that when needed, you could outrun most planes in style and luxury!

…BRABUS tuned the Tesla?


Being all-electric didn’t stopped BRABUS from getting their tuner hands on the new Tesla, but is did stopped them from making changes to the drivetrain, suspension, or even a majority of the body panels.

Instead what they focused on was gadgets and gizmos to add to the already gadget and gizmo filled ride.

Changes include a “space sound generator” that gives you the sound of a simulated V8, simulated race car, or two “futuristic soundscapes” named ‘Beam’ and ‘Warp’ when you mash the go pedal, “space lights” (better known as an underbody kit), a new rear spoiler and rear diffuser, front lip and integrated daytime running lights (stolen from Audi), and a custom-tailored BRABUS interior and tire/wheel combo.

Apparently BRABUS felt that the Tesla was some sort of sacred ground, because this is definitely the lightest hand they’ve touched any car with, but hey, at least it’s a start.

Now bring on the widebody kits!

…BRABUS makes a nice pair?


Ever wish you had a car for the track and a car for the city?

Well then, BRABUS has got you covered with a matching McLaren SLR and ULTIMATE 112.

The Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster gets a full body and trim kit, as well as a custom BRABUS interior and engine upgrades to bring the power level to a respectable 650 HP. (0-62 in 3.6 seconds; Top speed of 211 mph.)

The ULTIMATE 112 (aka the “tender”), which starts out life as a Smart Fortwo, gets matching paint and interior, as well as a boost to 112 HP.

Now if they just made something to tow these with…

…Brabus is making a monster?

Brabus Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster

If the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster just doesn’t do it for you, then maybe you need to check out the Brabus edition. (Or get a better sense of what does it for you.)

Featuring a new front spoiler made of exposed carbon fiber, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, 20 inch Brabus Monoblock VI wheels, special camshafts, a fuel cooling system, high-performance exhaust (the car is now up to 650hp from the supercharged V8) and a clutch-type limited-slip differential, the roadster will now get to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, with a new top speed of 209 mph.

Inside, there’s now custom leather trim, a flat-bottom sports steering wheel with integrated buttons for shifting gears, and carbon fiber trim for the dashboard, center console, and door.

Need more?

That’s just too damn bad, because it might not be possible.
