It’;s a G65 AMG with added connectivity and torque
If you have been tempted by Brabus’; 800 Widestar Geländewagen conversion but could not justify it simply because it was merely as well hard to run the day-to-day operations of your mineral-extraction concern/hedge fund/sultanate from the back seat, the boys from Bottrop are bringing a machine to the Geneva motor display that might just match your hefty bill.
Derived from the Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG, the 800 “iBusiness” (Brabus’; quotation marks, not ours), attributes the thwopping torque and sinister presence you expect from a single of their sizzling-plate Benzes and adds an Apple-based suite of connectivity and enjoyment answers.
A Mac Mini paired with an Apple Television and iPod touch handles the AV operate/play. The trick to creating it all perform concerned yanking the manufacturing G’;s rear bench and replacing it with 2 buckets and a custom rear center console. A 15.6-inch keep track of managed by Brabus’; proprietary app retracts into the roof when not in use. Its housing also is made up of gimbal-mounted studying lights for those moments when one particular need to pore over printed paperwork.
Even though the demonstrate automobile is cloaked in blackness with hints of red right here and there to break up the obsidian, opulent void, the tuning business is happy to oblige its clients with any colour blend they may possibly decide on.
The previous Brabus maxim, “We can produce an volume of torque adequate to unmoor your Chrysler Building from its foundations, but due to the limitations of transmissions specified by Stuttgart, we can only give you 811 foot-lbs of it,” holds true right here. The claimed attainable torque (courtesy of a pair of uprated turbos) is 1,047 lb-ft. Horsepower is an even 800. Prime speed is restricted to 155, however Brabus claims that ungoverned, the 800 “iBusiness” could hit 167. The boxy brute will hit 62 in 4.2 seconds.
We’;ll bask in all of its ostentatious glory in just a handful of days.
