Geneva 2020 : This Is The BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP

For the oil baron who always wanted a cross between the Mercedes-Benz 6x6 and the 4x4²: The new BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP.

  • It’s a heavily modified pickup version of the Mercedes-AMG G 63.
  • The tweaked twin-turbo V8 puts out 789-horsepower.
  • Priced between 400,000 and nearly 700,000 euros.

The Mercedes-Benz G wagen is one of the longest-serving SUVs in the world, as in it’s not changed much physically in over 40 years. It underwent some serious upgrades very recently but the essence of the legendary G is intact. BRABUS, a very well-known super-tuner of Mercedes-Benz products, has taken a new 2020 Mercedes-AMG G 63 and transformed it into an incredibly powerful and luxurious 800 Adventure XLP pickup.

Most of you surely remember the Mercedes-AMG G 63 6×6 and the more recent Mercedes-Benz G500 4×4². Well, this 800 Adventure XLP pickup is essentially a cross between the two. The donor G 63’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 has been massaged to produce no less than 789-horsepower and 737 lb.-ft. of torque which is enough to get the pickup to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds.

Making more power is easy but it’s what BRABUS had to go through in order to build this thing that impresses. BRABUS engineers lengthened the G’s wheelbase by 50cm in order to fit a bed that would actually be useful and fit, for example, an electrically powered high-tech drone from Wingcopter.

The list of features on this truck is mind-boggling and includes an all-new suspension with portal axles, 22-inch BRABUS Monoblock HD wheels, and a cabin fitted with the finest hides and materials imaginable.

Base price for the BRABUS 700 Adventure XLP, based on the Mercedes-AMG G 63, begins at 389,831 euros. A “First Edition” BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP starts at 575,630 euros. The vehicles you see in these pictures, a BRABUS 800 Adventure XLP, will sell for 666,386 euros including the Wingcopter.
