Based on the Mercedes-AMG G63, Brabus engineers, technicians and designers developed high-performance pickups with exceptional off-road capabilities, which they achieved with a special suspension designed by Brabus. The suspension was designed with a portal axle, producing 49 cm (19.2 inches) ground clearance.
The new attitude was designed to characterize the unusual appearance of the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP. The back end module is made of steel so it is very strong plus it has a lightweight carbon bedside.
The pickup tub can accommodate take-off and landing modules for a Wingcopter. The drone can reach the speeds of 240 kph and can transport relief supplies and rescue equipment safely and independently, up to a distance of 120 km to the terrain area.
The conversion represents a major challenge for the Brabus development team. For example, to be able to install a large bed behind the G-Class passenger cabin, the axle needs to extend by 50 cm (20 inches). The Brabus engineers utilize the design and sophisticated software to carry out the necessary calculations.
The engineer developed a special module for the ladder model chassis, claimed to be able to provide power to off-road model vehicles. The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is 68.9 cm longer than the standard Mercedes-AMG G63 without using a spare wheel behind it.
CSP is a business division of the Brabus Group which is engaged in developing and manufacturing high-tech components, producing carbon components used in this pickup. The vehicle body is made sturdy of steel plates in some parts such as the floor and rear window.
Components such as couplings and axles are made using advanced CNC technology, including suspension mounts and use steel raw materials.
The longer car suspension uses a specially developed Brabus Ride Control coil-over suspension, the suspension uses lightweight and strong titanium material making it suitable to absorb road shocks through non-asphalt or off-road terrain.
Drivers can control suspension settings, using Dynamic Select which is always available on Mercedes-Benz. The look of the car is even cooler after using a 22-inch rim wrapped in tires for all-terrain alerts Pirelli Scorpion ATR.
Under the hood, Brabus 800 Adventure XLP relies on a twin-turbo V8 engine with a capacity of 4,000 ccs in the Brabus 800 PowerXtra + specifications with an output of 588 kW / 800 DK (789 bhp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) torque.
The car runs from zero to 100 kph (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 210 kph (130 mph) due to the higher center of gravity and 22-inch all-terrain tires.
Brabus developed the Brabus Boost Xtra sound kit for bypass valves. With that, the turbocharged engine produces a clear blow-off sound when the driver lifts the throttle.
The high-performance exhaust systems also play a role in the severity of output. Two stainless steel exhaust pipes come out in front of the rear wheels on both sides that offer a choice of standard chrome or black colors plus, it also adds striking visual highlights.
Brabus 800 Adventure XLP offers luxury and the best in its interior. Each vehicle can be upgraded at the company’s upholstery store with Brabus smooth leather interior tailored to the personal preference of the vehicle owner in every detail.
Each customer of the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP pickup can have every interior detail coated with whatever color they want. Besides, they can choose from a variety of layout layouts. Specially made aluminum components such as pedals, door-lock pins add a sporty touch to the cockpit.
