Brabus showed a 900-horsepower “super black” brutal pickup truck with three axles. The tuning studio is one of the leaders in finalizing the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, but this seemed not enough to the company and it first turned the Gelendvagen into a pickup truck, and then this pickup truck was converted into an even more extreme version with three axles. The six-wheeled model debuted in two versions at once – the conventionally base Brabus XLP 800 6×6 Adventure with an 800-horsepower engine and the flagship 900-horsepower Brabus XLP 900 6×6 Superblack. From a technical point of view, both cars are identical.
The key differences between the two modifications are the chosen design theme and the engine upgrade program. If the Brabus XLP 800 6×6 Adventure has a snow-white body and an almost standard 4.0-liter V8, supplemented only by more efficient turbines and a new control unit, then the jet-black body of the Brabus XLP 900 6×6 Superblack hides more serious technical changes.
The standard Mercedes-AMG turbo engine was supplemented by specialists from Bottrop with new turbines, reinforced pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft, a more efficient fuel system and a number of other improvements. In combination with an increase in displacement to 4.4 liters, this made it possible to obtain already 900 horsepower.
The resulting monster weighing about 4.5 tons from standstill to 100 km / h accelerates in 5.2 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 210 kilometers per hour. The price of the Brabus XLP 900 6×6 Superblack starts from 1.1 million euros, but the final price will depend on the wishes of the client in terms of interior trim. The cost of a six-wheeled pickup truck includes one and a half thousand trees planted by Brabus.
