Mercedes-Benz no longer offers a G-Class pickup, but the prolific Brabus tuner has backed the idea.

Brabus introduced him the first G-Class pickup in 2020, and now it’s back with a more powerful version. Called the Brabus 900 XLP, it is limited to just 10 units.

The arrangement of the bed involved increasing the wheelbase by 20 inches (increasing the overall length by 27.1 inches) and designing a new rear window, according to a Brabus press release. The bed itself is made of a mixture of carbon fiber, composites and steel, the latter being used for the floor and trunk doors.

The bed is not the only external modification. Brabus has also equipped the 900 XLP with its Widestar body kit with wings that increase the width by 4.6 inches compared to the standard G-Wagen. They cover the monoblock Brabus wheels wrapped in all-terrain Pirelli Scorpion tires. The kit also includes a new front panel and hood with double scoops, as well as a carbon fiber finish. The winch and light bar complete the look.

Power is provided by the 4.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 used in other Brabus assemblies. It produces 888 horsepower, which is sent to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. Peak torque is a staggering 922 lb-ft, but it is limited by electronic means to 774 lb-ft to protect the transmission, Brabus claims.

Brabus cites a 0-62 mph acceleration in 4.4 seconds. According to the company, the top speed is electronically limited to 130 mph because of the truck’s all-terrain tires. But the speedometer rises to 186 miles per hour.
