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

Mercedes G-Wagon LAPV 6.X

Mercedes introduced a new armoured truck concept to the defence industry.  The Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle 6.X was shown off for the first time last month during Eurosatory 2010 in Paris.
Based on the LAPV 5.4, the 6.X was meant to carry larger and heavier cargo, while offering better protection as well as agility.  It uses an unspecified common-rail diesel engine that lets the concept hit 150 km/h (93 mph) even if carrying 1,300 kilograms (2,866 lbs) of cargo.
Various agencies would be pleased with the truck’s armour plate design, that lets repair teams quickly remove and replace damaged pieces.  Additional plates of armour may be installed quickly and as needed.  This includes protection from land mines that can be added at the LAPV’s floor.
Other features on the off-roader include variable air shock absorbers that can be adjusted on the fly to provide up to 450mm of clearance.  Hydraulic brakes with ventilated discs were also added to make rough terrain easier to navigate.
