The All New Brabus 800 Superwhite

Have you ever heard of Klaus Brackmann? No? He was an initial 50% shareholder in Brabus back in 1977 and sold his stock to Bodo Buschmann, the driving force behind Brabus, as Klaus had no interest in modifying vehicles. He sold the shares for 100 euros. The company is now worth billions of Euros and poor Klaus probably drives a VW Beetle to the krankenhaus. If poor Klaus had only held on to a 10% share, his grandchildren could probably afford the new Brabus XLP Superwhite while bopping to Riahanna’s, Diamonds. Brabus vehicles are highly sought after by the well heeled.

The Brabus 800 Superwhite is based on Mercedes-AMG G 63 (W463A) and is described by Brabus as a High Performance Go-Anywhere Pick-up. “Shine white like a diamond” is the theme of the new XLP-special edition “Superwhite”, which is part two of the Brabus monochrome design series, characterized by typically white Brabus design elements of both the interior and exterior.

The Saudi Prince of G-Wagon’s boasts a V8 Biturbo engine, delivering 588 kW / 800 HP and 1 000 Nm of torque. Your oil fields may be surrounded by high dunes and desert which will be no match for the special suspension combined with portal axles, which enable 49cm of ground clearance! That is just over 1.5 feet. The Brabus fine leather interior design features special embossing, “Heritage 77” inspired by the founding year of Brabus.

To accommodate the cargo bed, Brabus developed a special, high-strength frame module for the off-roader that allows moving the rear suspension further aft. As a result, the wheelbase grows by exactly 50 centimeters (20 inches), which also necessitated designing a longer driveshaft.

The newly created vehicle length of 5.31 meters (209 inches) offers space for a multi-use cargo bed. In order to achieve the greatest possible stability, the bed floor is made from sheet steel, as is the side-opening tailgate.

The design engineers use SoftTeak as the material for the bed liner, which can also be found in the high-performance boats from Brabus Marine. The material on this pickup is white and features gray Brabus logotypes matching the overall color scheme. As a striking contrast to the white special paintwork, the double bed bars behind the cab feature matte black coating as well as a roof luggage rack for which a roof tent is optionally available. We have reached out to Brabus and are awaiting more details on the roof tent.

New parts made from high-strength aluminum, were produced for the in-house independent suspension at the front axle and special integral subframe and new control arms were milled from solid pieces of aluminum. The newly designed rigid axle at the rear also required producing numerous tailor-made components such as all control arms and the reinforced axle housing. The portal axles increase not only the ground clearance, but also allow significantly greater axle articulation, which is extremely advantageous in tough off-road operations. The white beast boasts a Ride Control coil-over suspension and the standard Dynamic Select suspension adjustment enables the driver to select different setups for the titanium-coated struts. This makes it possible to adapt the damping, powertrain, steering and assistance systems optimally to the different operating conditions.

The Brabus Monoblock HD alloys are likewise designed for maximum loads, the eight-hole bolt pattern and the eight-spoke design was engineered specifically for these portal axles. The 9.5Jx22 wheels feature a black paint finish and, fitted with 325/55-R22 Pirelli Scorpion ATR all-terrain tires. We can’t wait to see one in the wild.
