Brabus

  • ​The Mercedes-AMG G63 is already a fairly extreme vehicle. The high performance version of the boxy G-Wagen 4WD uses a twin-turbo 4-liter V8 making 585 horsepower. But Brabus sees the extreme as a perfect launching point for the ludicrous, and has turned the G63 into a full-on off-road supercar.
  • The new Brabus Rocket 900 Cabrio will cost around US$400,000, produces similar power and torque, and has the same top speed as the Rocket 900 hardtop – 217 mph (350 km/h). It will be shown for the first time at Frankfurt next week.
  • Mercedes isn't exactly known for creating slow cars, but its efforts serve as a base for meaner, madder creations from Brabus. Its latest offering is unusually restrained in the engine stakes, but adds a pinch of power and a shake of extra visual drama to the E-Class Estate.
  • Leave it to the tuning shops to take one of the most extreme vehicles on the market and make it that much more extreme. Starting with Mercedes' own big, oversized G-Class, Brabus has added power, performance and accessories to create the 550 Adventure 4x42.
  • Brabus business vehicles have long been lusted after by workaholics and digital nomads the world over. Its latest Business Lounge puts more tech than ever at passenger fingertips. If you simply must travel by automobile, not private jet or superyacht, this is the way to do it.
  • ​Brabus is known for powerful Mercedes sports cars, but the tuner isn't afraid to set its sights lower. Based on the lowly three-cylinder Smart ForTwo, the Brabus Ultimate 125 adds a little more power, a bit more style and a crazy ​pricetag to the formula it debuted on the Smart Brabus last year.
  • Brabus is best known for producing ultra-powerful versions of AMG Mercedes sports cars, but the tuning house also has experience making Smart cars slightly faster than they were before. In keeping with that tradition, the latest Smart Brabus packs a 109-hp three-cylinder under its boot floor.
  • ​As symbols of motoring excess go, few can come close to the Mercedes S63 AMG Cabriolet. Sometimes, power and high-end engineering isn't enough, though. Brabus​​ is always willing to step into that void, in this case delivering the world's fastest four-seat convertible: the 850 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio.
  • Brabus unveiled a customized Mercedes S65 capable of producing 900 hp and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h ). Dubbed the “Desert Gold” edition, the company introduced the supercar at the Dubai International Motor Show going on this week.
  • A lack of power wouldn't be a criticism you'd level at the Mercedes-AMG range, but as per usual, Brabus has seen room for improvement. The company's latest tuning treatment gives the AMG GT S an extra 90 hp (66 kW), and a raft of sinister carbon fiber styling tweaks.
  • Being a European auto tuner is an odd thing. It takes a certain amount of chutzpa to say, "What does Mercedes know about auto design?". BRABUS has been at it longer than most, and the company just took a run at Mercedes' C–Class wagon and seems to have slathered on more of everything.
  • While they weren't as strong a fleet as sports cars or concept cars, crossovers and 4x4s had a solid presence at the Geneva Motor Show, anchored by the global debuts of some extremely rugged off-roaders.
