Who doesn’t love the venerable G-Wagon? In AMG G63 guise, it is more than enough machine for anyone but Brabus felt there were some out there who would appreciate more  — and they get more in every sense of the word with this creation called the Brabus 700 Widestar.

Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show, the modified Merc features, as the name would suggest, a widebody kit; it gives the iconic SUV 10 extra centimetres of stance which equals loads more road presence but it’s under the bonnet where the real magic has taken place.

Brabus tweaked the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 which now makes a whopping 690bhp (that’s an increase of over 100) along with 701 lb-ft of (950Nm) torque. It can hit 100kph from rest in just 4.3 seconds.

It also features a custom variable sports exhaust, aluminium paddle shifters and an elegant two-tone white and black leather interior perforated and quilted with a shell motif and orange accents. Good job.
