You may possibly believe that bombing all around in a V12, 800-horsepower, one,047-pound-feet of torque, triple-black German mega-SUV – each on paved roads and above broken ground – would be far more than sufficient entertainment for your typical gazillionare. As it turns out, or at least as the Brabus G800 iBusiness would propose, even all of that will get a small dry if you can not also check out your e mail or play a spot of Minecraft.
Nicely known for tuning Mercedes-Benz autos inside an inch of their proverbial lives, Brabus has set about waving its bonkers wand on the M-B G65 this time with a notion to add total connectivity to the mix. Even though other Brabus versions have offered related energy and torque outputs, none that we recall have also come with a baked-in Apple Mini computer, a 15.6-inch LCD check, charging ports for your iPad and your iPod and a keyboard and mouse.
Linked up to the vehicle’;s onboard electronics technique, an iPad Mini can be utilized to handle vehicle functions even though also surfing the world wide web by means of an integrated large-speed modem and WLAN. Brabus has even spliced an Apple Tv in with the much more frequent DVD player, meaning occupants can view Web tv although moving from to 62 miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds. We’;re not certain how nicely vehicle-based WiFi functions at 155 mph, but we’;re more than ready to accept a check drive to discover out.
Past all the Apple gear – and, oh yeah, there’;s a fridge back there too – the iBusiness delivers your run-of-the-mill Brabus insanity: 23-inch wheels, a massively pumped-up entire body kit, a Bilstein ride-managed suspension and carbon fiber as far as the eye can see. The blend of tech and grunt is effective adequate that Brabus tells us in the press release beneath that the vehicle “virtually is aware of no limits,” which we suppose is technically true, unless of course the computer systems have produced the truck self aware… you have all noticed Lawnmower Guy.

V12 multimedia super auto limitless
588 kW / 800 hp, 1,420 Nm, 23-inch wheels and widebody edition

Internet television from all above the world is displayed by the Apple Tv module on the major display. The DVD changer of the common COMAND method was also integrated into the multimedia possibilities. The large-end sound technique is tailored to the G-Class interior and offers a broad range of 1st-class listening pleasures. The iPod touch in the rear console serves as the plan source and can keep far more than 14,000 titles.
Rear-seat passengers can also appreciate the amenities of the BRABUS “iBusiness” notion in a particularly pleasant environment at evening.

The custom interior is accompanied by sheer higher overall performance: The 6.-liter V12 Biturbo engine of the G 65 is upgraded with the BRABUS 800 engine conversion. For this function the BRABUS engine specialists have created a large-tech twin turbo program. The exhaust manifolds with integrated turbo housings and high-overall performance turbochargers had been customized-designed for the G 65. They not only even more optimize throttle response, but generate a larger boost strain than the production turbos. 4 water-to-air intercoolers positioned beneath the carbon-fiber BRABUS hood scoop ensure reduce charge-air temperatures. This advantages energy delivery and durability even beneath intense problems this kind of as, for example, in the desert. 2 air filter boxes positioned in the front fenders guarantee an optimized provide of breathing air for the engine.
On the exhaust side there is a BRABUS stainless-steel exhaust program with free of charge-movement metal catalysts and sound management through a managed butterfly valve.

The front of the off-roader is marked by potent fender flares. But that’;s not all: The BRABUS front spoiler, which also fits any G 63 or G 65 without having WIDESTAR conversion, attaches to the manufacturing bumper and attributes LED daytime operating lights on the left and right-hand side.
