If you’re going to add the squared notation to “4X4” you have to be pretty sure that the vehicle is twice that of any other, and Brabus has done just that with their 700 4X42 “one of ten” final edition.
Using a Mercedes-Benz G63 wagon, Brabus beefed up the front and rear portal axles, raising the ground clearance to 23 inches. Wide carbon fenders were added to cover the Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires. The skid plate was also expanded. But that only hints at the 4X4 capability of the wagon. That’s where the engine upgrades come in.
BRABUS upgraded to a 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 engine that traded in the stock turbochargers for BRABUS’s special performance turbos and compressor unit. Those changes added plenty of power, bumping up the horsepower to 700 and the torque to 708 lb-ft. With that much push under the hood, the wagon can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just five seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 130 miles per hour (dictated by the off-road tires).
The exterior is predominately white with black accents, while inside the interior is decked out in two-tone black and light brown leather.
As the name suggests, the Final Edition is limited to 10 examples and will sell for approximately USD$237,000.
