Brabus became one of the first aftermarket specialists to work on the 2019 G500. The tuned G500 is a highly impressive vehicle with its upgraded engine, wide range of alloy wheels, custom bonnet and carbon fiber accents.
The G500’s twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine has been further modified to increase the output by 78 bhp and the torque by 74 pound-feet for an end result of 493 bhp at 5,600 rpm and 524 lb-ft from 2,250 rpm. This makes it possible for the vehicle to go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds and it can continue to pick up speed till it reaches 130 mph and the electronic top speed limiter comes into action.
In addition to topping up the engine, Brabus modified the external and internal appearance of the vehicle. It offers a wide range of alloy wheels which range from 20 to 23 inches in size, with the biggest 305/35 R23 tires. Another eye-catching feature is the custom bonnet fashioned from carbon fiber, complete with a functional scoop.
There are a number of carbon fiber accents across the exterior. The spoiler at the back and the roof-mounted LED lights at the front further add to the external appearance. For a price, customers can get a stainless steel exhaust system sporting a pair of chrome tips on each side. They can also choose between a quieter “coming home” mode and a louder sport mode which makes the vehicle sound really loud. The driver can choose between these two modes easily by controlling the flaps.
When it comes to the interiors, customers can choose from different types of leather. These are used in combination with the finest Alcantara and a carbon fiber trim to offer a high degree of personalization. There are also aluminium pedals and scuff plates, and even wood accents in a variety of finishes.
