Did Brabus ruin this G63?

Meet the Brabus G700!

It’s an absolutely raucous, in-your-face version of the regular AMG G63. The question is, is it an improvement over the regular G-wagon? And does it warrant the eye-watering £300,000 starting price?!

For starters, let’s check out the design. As with any Brabus, it comes with even wider wheel arches than the standard G and redesigned front and rear bumpers. It also comes with several Brabus badges in place of where you would normally find a Mercedes 3-pointed star, and there are a whole load of fake vents around the wheel arches, as well as a huge scoop on the bonnet that leads absolutely nowhere!

Step inside and the G700 is all pretty similar to the regular G63. The only difference you’ll find are the green inserts on the seats, as well as many Brabus logos throughout. But otherwise, you wouldn’t know you're in a Brabus instead of an AMG!

One area where there’s been a big change is the engine! Under the bonnet, you’ll still find a a 4-litre twin-turbo V8, but it’s had a new ECU fitted, so as a result it now puts down 700h and 950Nm! This power is sent to all four wheels via a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

So it’s about as in-your-face as it gets, but is it really worth around £100,000 more than a regular AMG G63? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
