Brabus 700 Widestar is a 700-hp wider version of 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63

By all means, the Mercedes-AMG G63 is already a high-performance luxury sports utility vehicle. It essentially takes luxury to the off-road with a superb performance potential. Nonetheless, German tuner Brabus still thinks the AMG G 63 can still offer more. Thus, the German company created the new Brabus 700 Widestar.

Unveiled to the global public for the first time at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show, the Brabus 700 Widestar isn't just more powerful but is also more menacing than the AMG G 63, thanks to a number of modifications.

In terms of looks, the Brabus 700 Widestar appears more distinctive than a typical AMG G 63. This is thanks to a new Widestar variant made just for the new G-Class, transforming the AMG G 63 into a widebody version. The body of the 700 Widestar has become wider by 10 cm thanks to muscular sculpted wheel arch flares as well as Brabus fender attachments both at the front and rear axle.

Lumma Design unveils new widebody kit for new Mercedes-AMG G63

While Mercedes-Benz is still gearing up to unveil the Mercedes-AMG G63 at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show this month, well-known tuner Lumma Design is already previewing a bespoke tuning program for the new AMG version of the Mercedes G-Class. This preview comes in the form of the new Widebody Lumma G-Class.

As its name indicates, the Widebody Lumma G-Class is fitted with a widebody kit, as complemented by heavy-duty alloy wheels and a number of performance upgrades. It is derived from the AMG G63, which boasts of delivering up to 585 hp of output and up to 850 Nm. While Lumma Design might not be the only tuner that would take on the new AMG G63, its extensive personalization program for the luxurious G-Class performance flagship could be very appealing to those who have extra money to spend.

The new AMG G63 performance flagship is actually a fusion of robustness, near indestructibility, passion, perfection and power. This is why Lumma chose this performance flagship as the base for the Lumma CLR G770 widebody kit. One of Lumma Design’s latest creation, the CLR G770 is composed of different parts and components made from ultra-light carbon fiber. These include carbon fiber body panels as well as a full carbon fiber bonnet that features specially designed vents. The CLR G770 kit also includes carbon fiber wheel arches that extend the width of the AMG 63 by 40mm on each side.

2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Night Package has everything you could imagine

Right now, the G63 is probably the highest spec of the G Class that customers can buy, but Mercedes-AMG will allow you to have an even cooler G63 if you are willing to spend a little more. A few weeks ago, we witnessed the sinister looking Edition 1, and now, the Affalterbach is showing us the optional Night Package for the reputable off roader in the AMG variant.

Though the aforementioned special edition model is only available for 12 months, the Night Package is not time sensitive. In fact, it will be available for the G63 for as long as we know. As its name suggests, the package includes a number of black styling elements on the outside. The only exception here is that customers who get the car in black as a base colour cannot order this package. We do think that this makes a lot of sense because then the accents will not be noticeable.

When customers tick the “Night Package” box, the turn signals will now have a black tint, while the side mirror caps, and the outer ring of the spare wheel will also get an Obsidian Black finish. Some parts of the front and rear bumpers, and the side skirts, will be finished in black too. The rear windows will then be tinted, and black underbody protectors finish off the exterior upgrades.

2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 owes impressive performance to 577 hp, major weight loss

It was a few weeks ago that Mercedes-Benz revealed the G-Class SUV to the public. And as early as now, they have already surprised us with the more powerful AMG version of it. It is definitely what we expected it to be - except it came earlier than we anticipated. Check out this 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63. Despite its huge, boxy size, this SUV is capable of accelerating to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds. That makes it almost a full second faster than its high-performance predecessor.

You are probably wondering where all this power comes from. Well, apart from the obvious, which is the ample AMG supplied power boost, the same 4.0 liter biturbo V8 has been tweaked so it can carry out 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts). That definitely sounds like a lot despite the fact that it is actually 14 horsepower (10 kilowatts) more than the G63. But aside from that, it is also because the G63 also lost a significant amount of weight, and I mean 375 pounds (174 kilograms) to be specific.

Moreover, the G63 also has a whopping 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-metres) of torque, making it 100 more than the GT R and 60 more than its predecessor. Can you just imagine this boxy G-Class SUV outrunning many hardcore sport sedans out on the streets?

We all saw the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class as it made its very first appearance weeks ago at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Though we only witnessed it very recently, the automaker confirms that we will soon be seeing more unique AMG versions of it.

Ian James, G-Wagen’s Marketing Manager said during his interview with Automotive News that the G-Class AMG is not that far away from being revealed. He also continued by saying that this will be available for the upcoming 2019 model year, which only means that we should expect to see it this year.

Because of his statement, do not be surprised if an artist from X Tomi has already begun rendering this. This G63 rendering is likely what we will see in early March before any other variant. Moreover, the automaker has also already given up a preview of what must be the more powerful AMG model, by showing off this G-Class in the AMG Line specification, finished in white. Yes, the AMG is really just a visual package for the off-roader, but it comes with a handful of upgrades. One of the main upgrades is a larger and more powerful biturbo 4.0 liter V8 engine.

The current generation of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class that has been in existence since 1990 (W463) is set to hit the end of the road soon. But it remains to be a favorite base among a number of tuners, including Brabus. In fact, Brabus has teamed up with footwear designer Jon Buscemi to create an exclusive version of the G-Class -- the new Brabus 850 Buscemi Edition -- as unveiled to the global public at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show.

As the name of this all-terrain creation indicates, it comes with a massive 850 hp (625 kW or 838 bhp) of output at 5,400 rpm. This comes courtesy of a Brabus 850 6.0 twin-turbo V8 engine which had its stock displacement of 5,461 cc increased to 5,912 cc (333 cubic inches to 361 cubic inches).

This engine, also tuned to deliver a whopping 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm, had its two production turbochargers replaced with turbochargers featuring modified exhaust manifolds and a larger compressor unit.

While the V12-powered Mercedes-AMG G65 is considered as the most powerful factory-built unit that anyone can get with its 621hp output, the creation by Ares Design offers even more power. Certain tuners are known for wanting to break ground and test limits. For this upscale-looking beast, there’s Modena-based coachbuilder Ares Design to thank. This tuner was actually founded in 2015 by former CEO of Lotus, Dany Bahar.

Just recently, Ares Design revealed the X-Raid. It is a dramatic looking coachbuilt G-Class that produces 760 horsepower (566 kilowatts). That is almost 140 horsepower more than the factory built G65. The Ares X-Raid was based on the Mercedes-AMG G63, and it even uses the same 5.5 liter V8 by AMG. But it was tuned to perform even better than what it can already do. As for performance, the X-Raid has a limited top speed of 155 miles per hour (249 kilometers per hour).

As mentioned earlier, the X-Raid has quite an interesting design. Though it may look like a heavy car, the body panels were made with lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum, which cuts down around 440 pounds (200 kilograms) compared to the original factory version. It now sits on a set of 22-inch forged wheels especially made by Ares Design. And for the interior, it gets a custom made X-Raid steering wheel, and now has a “completely new cockpit”. The interior is dressed in Nappa leather, and for a more comfortable and luxurious ride, passengers in the back get single VIP seats.

We all know about the Mercedes-AMG G63 and its capabilities, and we must say that it is one powerful SUV. However, it seems like one tuning company is still not satisfied with what it could already offer, so it decided to beef it up with an even bigger powertrain. But we have to say that German aftermarket tuner Posaidon did the right thing when it decided to upgrade the G63 in terms of looks and performance.

Now called the Posaidon G63 RS 850, it continues to have the same 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine under its hood, except it has been tweaked to carry out as much as 850 horsepower (633 kilowatts) and 995 pound-feet (1,350 Newton-metres) of torque. This allows for a 3.6 second time when doing the 0-62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) sprint. The boosted engine now has quite an impressive top speed of 285 kmh (177 mph). For the sake of comparison, the G63’s original 5.5 liter engine only gave out 571 horsepower (425 kW) and 560 pound-feet (760 Nm) of torque from the factory.

Thanks to a remapped ECU with upgraded internals to the seven speed AMG Speedshift G-Tronic gearbox that made the performance upgrade possible. Other than that, the chassis also got a little bit of an upgrade, which now features an adaptive damping system with three varying settings. The modified Mercedes-AMG G63 now comes with a set of 10.5 x 22 inch alloy wheels that wear 285/40R22 high performance tires. It comes with gold-painted brake calipers just like that of the less powerful S63 AMG.

If you fancy owning any automaker's limited edition releases then the Land of the Rising Sun is the place to be. Following the anticipated release of the CLA 180 donned in a Star Wars theme, Mercedes-Benz is back at it again with another limited edition in a more appealing AMG guise. The German automaker will be releasing a one of a kind G63 AMG 50th Anniversary Edition to celebrate Mercedes-AMG's 50 years in the automotive biz. However, Mercedes G63 will only be limited to Japan.

The 50th Anniversary Edition G63 will have only 50 units, and will be painted in Mauritius metallic paint that will give an even more premium look to the G63. The roof, fenders, contrast, mirrors and even the side trim will have the classy gloss black finish. To match the shadow look, a set of 20 inch AMG five spoke wheels is also fitted. Red callipers are also attached behind the black wheels that show off the large brakes.

Not to be left behind when it comes to swanky designs, Mercedes created an interior that boasts of high class Designo leather with diamond stitching. The interior of the G56 is also offered in 4 2-tone shades. In particular, 24 units will be produced in Porcelain white, 15 will have a black interior, 6 boasting of a Mocha Brown interior, and the last 5 will have a Saddle Brown toned interior. 3 of them will be bearing black leather for a 2-tone design. For a sporty look, an AMG Carbon Fiber trim package will seal the deal.

Been thinking of getting yourself a 2017 Mercedes-AMG G63 or 65? If you have, then maybe you would like to get something more special. The company just revealed two new versions of the said models. The Exclusive Edition will cost you around $177,978 (€163,125) for the G63 and $314,100 (€287,658) for the G65. The latter is currently the second most expensive Mercedes out there. It follows the G650 Landaulet (with a hefty price tag of around $527,400 or €500,000).

The Exclusive Edition is nearly €12,000 more expensive than the base model. So what comes with the extra twelve grand?

The off-road truck comes with stainless steel underguard and AMG-branded side strips. Aside from that, the company will provide buyers with a spare wheel cover that comes in the same colour as the truck, and aluminum rub strip inserts. Of course, they’ll top this off with a fancy set of 21-inch 5-twin-spoke ceramic-polished wheels. If buyers aren’t into that, they can instead get a set of 21-inch wheels in black finish with high-sheen rim flanges and side rib strips accented with carbon fiber (for the same price, I believe). The Exclusive Edition only offers one new special colour that is the matte AMG Monza Grey Magno, but the regular colours are available too.

Brabus is out to showcase what its 'B63S-700' performance kit can do for Mercedes-Benz's niche model – the G63 AMG 6x6. On display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Brabus B63S-700 6x6 was made to be even more potent and exclusive. The G63 AMG 6x6 is already quite impressive, with standard versions capable of delivering 536bhp and 561bhp, distributed to all six wheels through an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.

However, Brabus was able to raise this figure to 691bhp and 708lb ft. These major improvements of 155bhp and 147lb ft, are owed to the installation of a couple of new turbochargers, a modified ECU, high-flow catalytic convertors, a sports exhaust system and the extra heat shielding for the intake system.

Brabus also tweaked the six-wheeled 3775kg powerhouse to be able to accelerate from a standstill to 62mph in 7.4sec. But then, its top speed remains at 99mph. The speed was limited to protect the 37-inch off-road tires instead of the powertrain. In addition, the B63S-700 6x6 features an exhaust valve system that provides 'Sport' and 'Coming Home' modes.

Mercedes-Benz officially unveiled today the G63 AMG 6X6, a near-series show vehicle that promises to take the G-Class to another level. As expected, the vehicle is based on the G63 AMG, which means it is powered by the 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine delivering 544 hp or 400 kw and 700 Nm of torque.

The engine is bolted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission paired with the front drive system from the G63 AMG and a rear twin drive train from the 6x6 version, which proved its reliability in service with users such as the Australian army.

In terms of design the G63 AMG features large tyres, a huge ground clearance (it has a height of almost 2.30 metres and a width of almost 2.10 metres), the well-known AMG twin blade radiator grille, carbon fibre for the integrated LED light strips found above the windscreen as well as for the large flared wheel arches, stainless-steel roll-over bar for the rear load area section.

Brabus is offering an enhanced version of the Widestar 800 based on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG. Just a couple of years ago, Brabus unveiled the G55 AMG-based Widestar 800. But this time, Brabus has worked its expertise on the G65 AMG variant. The high-performance SUV was presented at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show.

It is powered by a V12 6.0-liter bi-turbo engine that delivers an incredible 800 HP (588 kW) and 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft). But torque is limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft). As a reminder, the regular G65 AMG churns "only" 612 HP (450 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft). Because of this major power upgrade, the Widestar 800 could accelerate from zero to 62mph (100 km/h) in just 4.2 seconds.

It could also continue to reach an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). But without the limiter, the off-roader is capable of reaching 168 mph (270 km/h). Its power is distributed to the permanent all-wheel drive system via a 7-speed automatic transmission. The G-Class will also be getting the customary wide body kit with sculpted fender flares, and front spoiler with LED DRLs.
