p class=”MsoNormal”>Throughout Mercedes’ G Class’s production life, it has seen itself in a variety of bodystyles; a 2-door and 4-door cabriolet, a three-door station wagon, and the infamous 6×6. Like every other modern Benz, the luxury-oriented SUV is no stranger to performance trims, and Mercedes-centered tuning company Brabus has brought their newest take on it.
p class=”MsoNormal”>The P 900 Rocket is a 900-horsepower pickup version of the G Wagen based off the XLP, a previous model that discards a portion of the rear end in favor of a truck bed. The P 900 is much more of a roadgoing model than one for rough terrain, with its adjustable aluminum coilover suspension and the forged 24-inch ‘Platinum Edition’ Monoblock Z Aero Disc wheels. The 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 of the G63 is bored up to a 4.5-liter, with enhancements to the turbos as well, increasing its torque to 922 lb-ft; but is capped to 774. It features a nine-speed automatic and a 0-60 of 3.7 seconds. Top speed is also electronically limited to 280 km/h, though it’s hard to imagine the buyers would ever feel the need to go above 200, with a weight of 2.7 tons.
Brabus has also added their own spice to the exterior with carbon fiber all around; the grille, fender flares, hood and tailgate are all the same material. The ‘PowerView’ hood has a transparent window for onlookers to admire the engine, and has red accents with red ambient lighting on the grille and the exhaust tips to give off a more menacing look. The red doesn’t stop on the outside either, with its black and red ‘seashell diamond’ interior that almost makes it look like the average influencer’s ideal G class.
With all the stuff onboard, it’s another limited-run model worth €650,000. Only ten of these will be made, and needless to say, they are most likely destined to be display pieces. While the reddish lighting on several parts of it doesn’t quite add to its intimidation, a street-focused G class pickup is one that still carries the road presence of henchmen and people of high notoriety driving black SUVs.
