FOR YEARS Brabus had made its name known for tuning Mercedes-Benz products, but for the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show the Bottrop-based tuner rolled out an Adventure Package for the current Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen.
While the package adds a touch of Brabus’ performance aesthetics in the form of the Brabus Widestar kit and exposed carbon-fibre bits seen in the skid plates and bonnet, the package isn’t without its practical purposes.
For the avid 4x4 adventurer the package adds a front bar that comes with a neatly integrated winch, four LED spotlights mounted to the front wind deflector, a roof luggage tray with mounting points of tools, a ladder mounted at the back to ease access to the roof tray, and a pivoted spare wheel carrier.
The G-Wagen’s off-road capabilities are further augmented by means of height-adjustable Brabus sport springs, which raises the ride height by another 40mm. The Widestar body widens the G-Wagen’s body by 10cm, allowing Brabus to fit 20-inch Brabus Monoblock R wheels equipped with off-road tyres.
For the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show Brabus also highlighted its tuning package for the G350d, which brings a generous 33kW and 60Nm bump to the 3.0-litre straight-six diesel donk by means of a plug-and-play engine electronics, unleashing a total output of 243kW and 690Nm.
For those who want to give their G-Wagen some extra street cred, Brabus will only be too happy to supply a side-exit stainless steel exhaust system, as well as an interior customisation package.
