The patrol fleet of the Dubai Police Force has a new addition – a Brabus-tuned Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. This amazing car joins the already intimidating list of luxury cars that Dubai’s police own, including a Bugattti Veyron, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari FF, a Bentley Continental GT, an Aston Martin One-77, and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
The new G-Class is a Brabus B63S-Widestar that used special paint and that features an LED light bar. Its other elements are simply standard-grade Brabus and AMG hardware, such as a set of massive 23-inch forged wheels, the flared fenders, and gaping front fascia. It also has the following standard features from Brabus: quilted red leather seating, illuminated door sills, and carbon fiber trim.
It’s definitely much better than what’s seen in a typical police car, which mainly uses plastic and vinyl. Brabus tuned the already impressive G63 AMG to be more potent. The stock 2013 G63 AMG is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 that offers 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. After Brabus tweaks the engine, this same engine becomes capable of producing 700 hp and 708 lb-ft of torque.
It doesn’t offer much in terms of aerodynamics and it weighs significantly more than 5600 pounds but with this output, the Brabus B63S-Widestar is able to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 149 mph.
It would be exciting to see the Brabus G63 AMG go after criminals on the highway but it’s unlikely to be placed in active service. It’s believed that similar to what has become of Dubai’s other exotic police cars, the B63S-700 Widestar will probably be more of a department ambassador and will be seen mostly during special events.
