the brabus 700 4x4² final edition rides 60cm off the ground

brabus takes on the mercedes-benz‘s G-class series of SUVs, its new exclusive off-road supercar boasting 515 kW / 700 hp, 960 Nm of torque and the ability to reach 0-100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds. with outstanding off-road capabilities, the base vehicle has been converted to portal axles, in concert with the multi-adjustable suspension providing a tremendous 60 centimeters of ground clearance.

in addition, the extravagant off-roader impresses with attractive design features such as massive carbon fender flares or the roof spoiler made from the same material and fitted with LED daytime running lights. a tailor-made brabus fine leather interior crafted to the vehicle owner’s personal preferences in every detail is optionally available. 

 

the supercar’s spectacular off-road looks and optimal off-road capabilities are a product of the extra-high ground clearance and maximum articulation of both axles. engineers and technicians converted the vehicle to the portal axles of the mercedes G 500 4×4², which were developed specifically for this purpose. to achieve equally safe and agile handling in all conditions on and off paved roads, the brabus 700 4×4² is equipped with an electronically adjustable suspension, whose settings can be changed by the driver to suite his taste with the touch control panel in the cockpit.

the height-adjustable struts are made from high-strength aluminum and allow individual adjustment of the ride height at the front and rear axle. this allow adjusting the particular wheel loads precisely. in addition, the choice of material for the dampers also offers the advantages of reduced unsprung masses and optimized heat dissipation. their design featuring an expansion reservoir on each strut also provides 15 percent more damper oil volume, which creates tremendous reserves especially when driving in rough terrain.

 

this special model is powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine fitted with a BRABUS performance upgrade that bumps power output to 515 kW / 700 hp (690 bhp) and torque to 960 Nm (708 lb-ft). thus powered, the tuned off-roader sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.0 seconds. the top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph) due to the all-out off-road tires.

the driver can choose between the four drive modes ‘comfort,’ ‘sport,’ ‘off-road’ and ‘individual’ using the touch control panel. the latter setup allows adjusting the damper rate individually for each axle. to protect the engine, driveline and the tank from damages during heavy off-road use, brabus equipped the special model with robust skid plate elements.

the brabus 700 4×4² comes with a two-tone black/light brown leather interior. individual requests can be fulfilled by the company upholstery shop with a brabus fine leather interior in any desired color and upholstery design. in addition, the brabus options for the interior also comprise noble woods or carbon elements in all imaginable colors and grains. brabus also offers special power-retractable steps to make getting in and out easier.
