Brabus Teams Up With A Sneaker Icon To Pay Tribute To The G-Class 15

As the long-serving Mercedes G-Wagen approaches the end of its line, we’ve been witnessing a seemingly endless stream of send-off specials, with the latest being the Buscemi Edition from Brabus.

No, not the actor Steve Buscemi (of Fargo and Big Lebowski fame); this one was done in partnership with Jon Buscemi, a veritable icon in the sneaker scene.

Brabus and Buscemi decked out this G63 with a widebody conversion, decked out all in black with gold trim inside and out. The interior’s likewise upholstered in black, stitched and piped in red. But Brabus being Brabus, there’s more to this custom job than some fancy trim.

The Benz tuner has fitted this special G with its full 850 powertrain conversion, with the twin-turbo V8 bored out to 6.0 liters and tuned to deliver 838 horsepower and 1,069 lb-ft of torque through all four of those 23-inch wheels. Even with 5,622 pounds to push, Brabus says the 850 Buscemi will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in four seconds flat and top out at an electronically limited 162 mph (260 km/h).

Brabus unveiled the Buscemi G at the Dubai Motor Show this week, and will make you one, too – as long as you have the 410,000 euros (plus tax) to spare. Mind you, you also get with two pairs of exclusive Buscemi sneakers and a special three-piece luggage set, too.

Maybach S650 Not Enough? Check Out The New Brabus 900 12

Mercedes recently upgraded its top-of-the-line Maybach S-Class sedan with the twin-turbo V12 from the AMG S65, giving the big limousine all the power and torque that you could ask for. Still, there are some who may want even more. And for those individuals, there’s Brabus.

The Benz tuner extraordinaire has released a new series of modifications for the updated S-Class, chief among them the Maybach S650 – which Brabus has cranked up to 888 horsepower.

To get there, Brabus bored out the engine from 6.0 liters to 6.3 and fitted new turbochargers, crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and exhaust system. To go with the engine enhancements, it’s also offering a full array of visual and aerodynamic upgrades, as well as an interior customized to the buyer’s taste.

The headline figure here, though, is a 0-62 time of just 3.7 seconds (limited largely by the traction of the rear driven wheels) and a top speed in excess of 217 miles per hour. Not bad for a sedan weighing the better part of three tons.

Brabus will apply the same upgrades to the “standard” S600 and the AMG S65 which share the same engine architecture. But if that all seems like too much to handle, it’s also released performance upgrades for the (relatively) smaller engines on offer. It’ll tune the S560 up to 650 hp and the AMG S63 to 691 hp. With four-wheel traction (and a lighter engine), we wouldn’t be surprised to see the latter version achieve even more impressive performance.

Brabus Shows Off More Of 4×4² Adventure, In Case Anyone Missed It 12

Over the years, Mercedes-Benz have managed to transform the G-Class from a no-nonsense all-terrain vehicle, to something that’s more of a cultural icon/fashion statement.

In their efforts, they went from AMG-powered models, all the way to something like the G63 AMG 6×6, a six-wheeled beast that might as well live on Mars than somewhere with an infrastructure.

Their latest creation however was slightly more sensible than the 6×6, yet still bonkers in its own right. We’re talking of course about the G500 4×4², powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, good for 422 PS and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft).

Earlier this year in Geneva, Brabus also launched the G550 Adventure, an even more rugged version of the regular G500 4×4², with more power and even more off-roading ability.

The G550 Adventure puts down 550 PS (542 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft), enough to take this three tonne SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.7 seconds.

It’s also got underbody protection, a winch, hood scoop, extra lighting units and an electronically adjustable suspension – pretty much everything you’d need if you were a Jurassic World employee.

Apparently squeezing an additional 102hp and 128lb-ft (174Nm) of torque from the 4.0-liter V8 engine that powers the Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4² makes it an "ultimate off-road machine" for Renntech.
