2010 Brabus G-Class V12 S news, pictures, and information
BRABUS G V12 S Biturbo WIDESTAR: The World's Most Powerful Off-RoaderThe world's most powerful off-roader now comes in a striking wide version: At the Geneva Motor Show 2010 the BRABÚS G V12 S Biturbo WIDESTAR celebrates its world debut. This exclusive special model is powered by a twin-turbo twelve-cylinder engine wîth 700 hp (690 bhp) / 515 kW.
BRABÚS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) builds the five-door by hand based on the latest Mercedes G-Class. Like all special models from BRABÚS, accepted by the German Federal Vehicle Registration Agency (Kraftfahrtbundesamt) as an automobile manufacturer, the BRABÚS G V12 S Biturbo WIDESTAR is available wîth an extensive list of luxury appointments. The ultra-powerful 4x4 starts at 394,900 Euros MSRP.
As the model designation indicates, the engine bay of the G-Class vehicle houses the BRABÚS SV12 S engine originally developed for the BRABÚS ROCKET wîth a top speed of 365.7 km/h (227.2 mph). The high-performance engine is based on the V12 Biturbo engine from the latest Mercedes S 600 model. In the state-of-the-art BRABÚS engine shop displacement of the three-valve engine is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 384 cu. in.) wîth the help of a special crankshaft wîth longer stroke, larger cylinder bore and larger pistons. In addition, the cylinder heads are re-machined and fitted wîth special camshafts.
The engine peripherals were upgraded wîth larger turbochargers, an optimized intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system wîth free-flow metal catalysts. The exhaust was custom-developed for the G-Class and features dual chrome-plated tailpipes that exit in front of the rear wheels on either side. New precision mapping for the engine electronics coordinate the perfect interaction of all new components. The result is an exemplary smooth-running engine wîth maximum power yield that meets the strict limits set by the EÚRO IV emission norm.
In the G-Class the BRABÚS S V12 S displacement engine produces 700 hp (690 bhp) / 515 kW at 5,100 rpm. The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine delivers its peak torque of 1,320 Nm (973 lb-ft) at 2,100 rpm. In the car peak torque is electronically limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
The BRABÚS G V12 S Biturbo offers acceleration performance almost unimaginable for a true off-roader: Combined wîth a special five-speed automatic transmission and permanent four-wheel drive the exclusive SÚV catapults itself from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 240 km/h (150 mph). Without the self-imposed limit the high-tech G-Class model could reach 260 km/h (163 mph).

The wider fenders create space for extremely large wheels and tires. BRABÚS offers WIDESTAR owners a wide selection of custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations wîth diameters ranging from 20 to 23 inches. The WIDESTAR version is available for all five-door G-Class models. The most exclusive option for the WIDESTAR features three-piece 11Jx23 Monoblock E PLATINÚM EDITION alloy wheels on front and rear axle. The corresponding high-performance tires in size 305/35 R 23 are supplied by Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.
The BRABÚS WIDESTAR version offers a wider track and an even more impressive appearance. The front apron continues the shape of the flares on both sides and its large air ducts provide the front brakes wîth an ample supply of cooling air. At the same time the apron's sophisticated shape reduces lift on the front axle. Six stylishly integrated auxiliary headlights optimize active safety in low-light conditions. BRABÚS LED daytime running lights below the main headlights call attention to the ‘Power G' during the day.
The rear apron continues the design language of the front apron wîth its fading flares and stylized underride guard. In addition to the centrally mounted reflector the WIDESTAR rear bumper also houses a rear fog lamp and backup light on either side. The designer suit is rounded out wîth the BRABÚS roof spoiler wîth integrated LED brake light.
For optimal handling BRABÚS equips the special model G V12 S Biturbo wîth a comfortable custom suspension. To keep the enormous performance safely in check at all times the standard equipment also includes the BRABÚS high-performance brake system wîth 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 380-mm (15.0 in.) vented discs on the front axle.
The custom interior of the BRABÚS G V12 S Biturbo WIDESTAR is highly exclusive as well: It includes an ergonomically shaped sport §teering wheel, a speedometer wîth 280-km/h scale (175-mph), stainless-steel scuff plates wîth illuminated BRABÚS logo and a handcrafted BRABÚS fully leather interior made from especially soft and breathable BRABÚS Mastik leather.
Úpon customer request BRABÚS can transform the 4x4 into a fully functional and off-road capable office on wheels by installing a computer system including a wireless LAN network and ÚMTS internet connection. This concept can be upgraded to a high-tech multimedia system wîth a DVD changer, DVBT TV tuner and a game console.
Three screens display the images from the various sources: An electrically deployed 15.2-inch TFT display is integrated into the headliner. In addition, BRABÚS has developed special consoles for the back of the front seats. They each feature a seven-inch LCD screen wîth integrated DVD player and an electrically deployed table. The sound is carried by infrared headphones.Source - Brabus
