BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP

An exclusive supercar never seen in this form before: The BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP celebrates its world premiere. The pickups of model year 2020 are available in an exclusive limited "First Edition." Based on the Mercedes G 63 AMG, our engineers, technicians and designers develop a high-performance pickup with outstanding off-road capability, which they achieved with a newly designed special suspension with portal axles. This results in a ground clearance of 49 centimeters (19.2 inches).

The power source is the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 in BRABUS 800 PowerXtra + specification with an output of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. With it, the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph) due to the higher center of gravity and the 22-inch all-terrain tires. 

The show car features a ROCKET silver matte special paint finish and a burned oak BRABUS fine leather interior.

Design & Exterior. The Bigger The Better.

For example, in order to be able to mount a generously sized pickup bed behind the unchanged spacious passenger cabin of the G-Class, the wheelbase was extended by 50 centimeters (20 inches) for a start. The BRABUS engineers used state-of-the-art design and engineering software to run the calculations required for this. They developed a special module for the steel ladder-type frame of the off-roader to these specifications, which fully preserves the torsional rigidity and replaces the mounting points for the rear suspension. Length overall is 5.31 meters (17.4 feet), which is 68.9 centimeters (27.1 inches) more than a stock G 63 without spare wheel at the rear.

In addition, the vehicle is fitted with the optionally available luggage rack on the roof of the cab and the naked-carbon wind deflector with four auxiliary LED lights mounted in front of it. The matte black double bed bar behind the cab of the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP not only plays a role on the thrilling pickup looks of this supercar, it also can be used for safely tying down items in the pickup bed.

Carbon undeniably also is being used for the production of a myriad of other bodywork components. They include, among other things, the BRABUS top-mounted hood attachment with two power bulges, as well as the fender flares, which were adapted from the BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody version for the current Mercedes G-Class models and fitted with naked-carbon wheel arches in addition. They make the supercar 11.6 centimeters (4.6 inches) wider than the production car. The rub strips, likewise made from naked carbon, add further sporty highlights.

In addition to the tailgate, which reveals the origin of this supercar on a naked-carbon panel with recessed BRABUS logotype, the WIDESTAR fascia with stylized skid plate characterizes the looks of the pickup from the back. The handles of all doors and the tailgate are new and inlaid with BRABUS logotypes.

The running boards, longer to match the extended wheelbase of the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP, make getting in and out easier. The flares integrate LED lights to ensure a safe step at night as well. When you pull on a door handle or when you activate the central locking system via Keyless Go by approaching the vehicle, the entrance lights and the BRABUS logos behind the front flares light up.

Due to the lofty entrance height, BRABUS also offers special powered step bars that make it easier to climb in and out of the pickup safely.

In addition to the tailgate, which reveals the origin of this supercar on a naked-carbon panel with recessed BRABUS logotype, the WIDESTAR fascia with stylized skid plate characterizes the looks of the pickup from the back. The handles of all doors and the tailgate are new and inlaid with BRABUS logotypes.

Power & Sound. High Performer.

One of the world’s most powerful engines in an off-roader joins the unusual vehicle body. To this end, the 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 of the current G 63 AMG was thoroughly revised by the BRABUS powerplant engineers. The BRABUS 800 PowerXtra + performance upgrade comprises extensive modifications to the engine peripherals: The two production turbos are replaced by two reconfigured BRABUS high-performance turbochargers, which in addition to a larger compressor unit also have a modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearings. They produce a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar.

To give the tuned eight-cylinder also a more thrilling exhaust note, we developed the BRABUS Boost Xtra sound kit for the bypass valve. With it, the turbocharged engine produces a clearly audible blow-off noise when the driver lifts off the throttle. Of course, the BRABUS high-performance exhaust system also plays a role in the acoustic fascination. Thanks to its actively controlled exhaust flap, it offers an integrated sound management, which can change the exhaust note from a subtle "Coming Home” mode to a markedly sporty V8 sound. The two tailpipes of the stainless-steel exhaust exiting in front of the rear wheels on either side offer a choice of standard or black chrome finish and also add striking visual highlights.

The larger turbos are complemented for this engine conversion with new mapping for injection, boost pressure control and ignition. They are introduced into the electronic engine control unit via the PowerXtra module. As the type designation BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP indicates, peak output of the twin-turbo engine jumps to 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) at 6,600 rpm. Even more important for the superior power delivery of the pickup is the peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) at a low 3,600 rpm.

This engine turns the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP into one of the world's most powerful pickups. From rest, the supercar with pickup bed sprints to a speed of 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph) due to the all-terrain tires. The nine-speed automatic transmission can optionally also be shifted manually with the ergonomic BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The revised powertrain also includes a special drive shaft necessitated by the extended wheelbase.

Wheels & Chassis. Higher and Beyond.

In order to give it spectacular off-road looks and outstanding off-road capabilities thanks to extra-high ground clearance and maximum articulation of both axles, our engineers and technicians equipped the vehicle with a newly developed suspension with portal axles, which was developed specifically for this pickup.

A tailor-made variant of the innovative BRABUS Ride Control coilover suspension was developed to match this design. Its damping rates were tailored specifically to the increased ground clearance resulting from the portal axles. The driver can control the BRABUS suspension from the cockpit with the standard DYNAMIC SELECT suspension adjustment switch of the current Mercedes G-Class. It allows choosing from different setups for the suspension, powertrain, steering, and assistance systems. In addition, the titanium-coated BRABUS aluminum suspension is height-adjustable.

The suspension redesign also includes a switch to the new BRABUS Monoblock HD wheels, which were designed with an eight-lug pattern specifically the portal axles. In size 9.5Jx22, these alloys designed for maximum robustness and fitted with Pirelli Scorpion ATR all-terrain tires of size 325/55 R 22 fill the space under the naked-carbon fender flares perfectly.

Interior. individual handmade masterpieces.

Of course, the BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP also offers luxury and individuality at their finest in the interior. Each vehicle can be enhanced in the company upholstery shop with a BRABUS fine leather interior tailored to the vehicle owner's personal preferences in every detail.

The show car is part of the limited "First Edition." These pickups are outfitted with the finest leather, whose burned oak color creates a contrast with the optional ROCKET silver matte paintwork. The center sections of the seats feature shell-shaped quilting and perforations applied with pinpoint precision. Some areas such as the headliner were upholstered with black Alcantara.

For the other BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP pickups, customers can have every detail of the interior upholstered in virtually any desired color. In addition, they can choose from a wide variety of upholstery layouts.

Tailor-made aluminum components such as pedals, door-lock pins and ergonomic paddle shifters on the steering wheel add markedly sporty touches in the cockpit.
