“This is one of the most beautiful Mercedeses in the world”, says Supercar Blondie. She is referring to her brand-new Tiffany Edition Brabus 800. Actually, it’s not that brand-new. Just the customization is.
She jumps clapping her hands when she lays her eyes on the Tiffany blue massive box. There’s no doubt it hides what she thinks it hides. She has been waiting for six months for the moment.
Once she pulls the white ribbon, the cardboard walls of the box fall to the ground and reveal balloons in white and blue and what used to be a Mercedes-AMG G 63. But that was so long ago. Because, before becoming a Tiffany custom model, it was a Brabus 800.
Of course, you know what Brabus 800 is. It’s a G 63 that went all the way from 585 PS (5777 HP) and 850 Nm to 800 PS and 1,000 Nm of torque. That’s quite a power bump for the 4.0-liter biturbo V8, that Brabus achieved part thanks to new turbochargers and ECU remapping. They also mounted a new exhaust system. Now the side pipes rock that brutal soundtrack, especially when the transmission downgrades.
The car in a brushed metallic bronze now with contrasting Tiffany blue accents sports the Brabus Widestar bodykit. The package brings a massive hood scoop, fender flares, a wing elongating the roof and a spare wheel case at the rear, all in carbon fiber. Two of the vertical slats in the radiator grille are in blue, instead of the usual Brabus red.
It may look head-turning in the U.S. and Europe, but these looks are nothing to write home about in Dubai. To stand out in the crowd (at least a little bit), the Brabus 800 displays spotlights on the roof and LEDs in the side steps. That’s more like it.
Brabus fitted the offroader with monoblock 23-inch wheels with aerodynamic optimization, similar to what Mabyach fits onto its cars.
But what does the interior look like? Instead of guessing, you can hit the Play button of the video below. Prepare to be amazed. Spoiler alert: you get to hear that engine roar after the 8-minute mark. That’s when Supercar Blondie‘s cheering is finally covered by the call of the beast. We can’t blame her though…
