Muscular fender flares front and back, high-tech forged wheels with a
diameter of 23 inches, a striking front with large air inlets and a 5.5-liter
Biturbo V8 engine producing 456.3 kW / 620 hp (611 bhp) of power.
The Brabus Widestar body conversion for the new GL-Class is characterized by the
striking fender flares front and back that add eight centimeters (3.1 in.) to
the width of the grand SUV.
The large air inlets of the Brabus Widestar front element give it an even more
bullish appearance and optimize the supply of fresh air for radiators and front
brakes. Its sophisticated shape reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds
and thus optimizes directional stability.
From the rear, the wide-body version is even more striking thanks to the roof
spoiler and the rear element made by Brabus. The thrilling Brabus appearance
includes a diffuser integrated into the fascia and the precise-fit cutouts for
the distinctive ceramics-coated tailpipes of the Brabus stainless-steel sport
exhaust system with butterfly valve.
The Brabus WidestarI wide-body version also creates space for extreme-sized
tires. The large wheel wells of the GL-Class offer just enough space for 23-inch
high-tech forged wheels. The Brabus "Platinum Edition" 11Jx23 alloys are
available in three popular designs: Monoblock E evo, F and R. State-of-the-art
forging technology makes the "Platinum Edition" wheels particularly light
despite offering outstanding strength and stress resistance.
The suitable high-performance street tires in size 305/30 R 23 are supplied by
Brabus technology partners Continental, Pirelli and Yokohama.
The Brabus B63 - 620 PowerXtra module is integrated into the engine electronics
as a plug-and-play device. It features new mapping for injection and ignition
and provides amoderate increase in boost pressure. Maximum power output jumps
from standard 410 kW / 557 hp to 456.3 kW / 620 hp (549 bhp to 611 bhp) at a low
5,750 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 760 to 820 Nm (560 lb-ft to 604
lb-ft), steadily available on a plateau between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm.
The tuned SUV zooms to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds and reaches an
electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).
Exclusive interior options are another Brabus specialty: for the new Mercedes GL
63 AMG Brabus offers stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo,
exclusive Brabus all-leather interiors crafted from a masterfully finished
combination of the finest Mastik leather and Alcantara.
