Brabus 900 Superblack: Half a million euros for 900 hp

Happy Birthday Brabus! The traditional tuner celebrates its 45th anniversary in 2022. To celebrate themselves – and as a kind of “gift” to the customers – the Bottropers are launching the 900 Superblack as a special version of their G-Class. In addition to the engine performance that gives it its name, the new one has a wide body kit and more black make-up than any black metal band. And it should be louder too. (All information about the current Mercedes G-Class!)

Displacement increase to 4.4 liters

Before the optics, we take care of the drive technology, which is simply mandatory at Brabus. Normally, a four-liter biturbo V8 with 585 hp and 850 Nm of torque does its job in the AMG G 63. Pushing the engine to 900 hp and 1250 Nm of torque (!) required more than just a little software optimization. Brabus got its hands dirty and increased displacement from 3982 to 4407 ccm. For this purpose, the cylinders were bored out to a diameter of 84 mm, oversize pistons including forged connecting rods and a milled and finely balanced crankshaft with a stroke of 100 mm were installed.

This is how the vast majority of road users should see it from behind: a top speed of 280 km/h is a given in the G-Class.

A special ram-air intake system forces air into the new turbochargers with larger compressor wheels and reinforced axial bearings, which release the excess boost pressure to the outside via a blow-off valve. Injection, ignition and boost pressure are controlled by newly tuned engine electronics, while a new high-pressure fuel pump ensures constant fuel pressure. The V8 sound escapes from the side of the black-clad stainless steel tailpipes, which should only be filtered to an insignificant extent by metal cats in the sports downpipes and new OPFs. An in-house coilover kit with a lowering of up to 45 mm and adjustable damping keeps the load together better in curves.

280 km/h top speed

Was all the effort worth it? And how! The 2.6-ton colossus sprints to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds (series: 4.5 s). Depending on the equipment and tires, the Brabus-G is only limited to 280 km/h, which clearly exceeds the maximum 240 km/h of the series. The power on the ground bring 295/30 slippers at the front and huge 355/25 at the rear, which stretch around 10 and 12×24 inch rims. (These are the best summer tires of 2022!)

Please do not use it as an underride protection: The middle part of the apron looks robust, but it is made of sensitive carbon.

Everywhere black

The wheels are called Monoblock Z Platinum Edition and are black. The Widestar body kit widens the body by ten centimeters and includes sportier aprons with dark carbon inserts. Woven carbon fiber is also found on the grille with illuminated logo, trim strips, door handles, spare tire cover, hood lip, LED roof daytime running light bar and more. And as if that wasn’t enough, all chrome trim parts and lettering have been blackened. Rarely has a G-Class looked so angry. The only splash of color is found under the hood in the form of a red carbon fiber engine cover.

More practical door hinges

Brabus further upgrades the interior with lots of leather, decorative stitching, carbon and blackened chrome trim parts.

It is also dark inside, which is almost completely covered with particularly soft, black leather. There are also special quiltings on the seats, door panels, floor and trunk. What is not covered by animal skin is adorned with carbon or decorative strips made of – you guessed it – dark chrome. A speedometer up to 300 km/h testifies to the additional power in the bow. Practical detail: Brabus installed new door hinges, which now allow the portals to be opened wide by up to 90 degrees and make boarding easier.

Price of over half a million euros

Anyone who knows Brabus and puts the exquisite ingredients on the scales suspects: the fun doesn’t come cheap. The vehicle shown here costs 511,959.42 euros gross, and the basis is currently only available on the used car market at high prices. “Birthday present” is somehow not quite appropriate for this anniversary G. On the other hand, the insane Brabus Crawler costs around 400,000 euros more – and it doesn’t even have a windshield.
