The highly-anticipated Brabus G63 AMG 850 6.0 Widestar is on show at the ongoing IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. Basically a heavily modified version of the G-Class, we took a look at Brabus’ latest creation at the show.
Powering the Brabus 850 6.0 TDI BiTurbo Widestar is a heavily modified version of the G63 AMG’s twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 engine. As the name of the Brabus denotes, its displacement has been increased to 6.0-litres by boring out the cylinders. Elsewhere, forged pistons have been installed as has a precision-balanced billet crankshaft while both the cylinder heads have been optimised for improved gas glow.
Further engine upgrades include the fitment of two Brabus turbochargers with larger compressors than the standard turbos. Modified exhaust manifolds are also included while the intake and charge pipes have been fitted with gold sheathing. A new exhaust system has also been fitted. When it is all said and done, the Brabus 850 6.0 TDI BiTurbo Widestar pumps out 838 hp at 5400 rpm and 1069 lb-ft of torque between 2500 and 4500 rpm. The car will accelerate to 96 km/h (60 mph) in 4.0 seconds flat and hit a 260 km/h electronically-limited top speed. Visually, the car has been installed with a set of 23-inch forged wheels at all four corners with 305/35 tyres from either Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama.
