Mercedes-Benz G500 SWB 6.1 Widestar by Brabus

mercedes-benz-g500-swb-6-1-widestar-by-brabus-1Mercedes-Benz may have phased out the G-Class SWB back in 2011, but that hasn’t stopped Brabus from introducing a brand new upgrade kit for the defunct three-door SUV. Making use of the G500 BA3 Final Edition, the customized G-Class bears the Brabus Widestar body kit and sits on 22″ nine-spoke Monoblock E alloy wheels as beautiful red and black leather coats the interior. Given the “6.1″ designation, the vehicle likely boasts a healthy increase in power over the 388 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque of the original 5.5 liter V8mercedes-benz-g500-swb-6-1-widestar-by-brabus-2 mercedes-benz-g500-swb-6-1-widestar-by-brabus-3 mercedes-benz-g500-swb-6-1-widestar-by-brabus-4

Dubai Police Brabus G63 AMG

The Dubai police force has just given us a new reason to get arrested – it’s added a Brabus-tuned G63 AMG to its fleet.

Yep, the 690bhp B637 “700 Widestar” is the latest lump of exotica the Emirati rozzers can tool around in. And with a top speed of 149mph, 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds and a roster of off-road credentials, it’ll be able to bring many deserty high-speed pursuits to a close. It rounds off the Dubai police force’s crim-troubling armada of 217mph Lamborghini Aventador (for high-speed motorway chases), 208mph four-wheel drive Ferrari FF (for, er, wintry high-speed motorway chases), and 197mph Bentley Continental (for storing more than one assailant)!!! All will be on display at the Dubai Motor Show soon.

Mercedes Benz G-Class History Video

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has offered 4-wheel drive functionality along with a boxy, workmanlike aesthetic since the late 1970s, and a new video from the German luxury automaker traces the history of a true automotive icon. The G-Class began as a military vehicle initially requested by the Shah of Iran, and is now a “cult item” with a dedicated fan club and loyal customer base who want to see it remain that way. The video features some of the G’s historic exploits, as well as interviews with designer Volker Leutz and head of Mercedes-Benz Classic Michael Bock, who discuss updating the G-Class while staying true to its roots. Check it out below.
