Essen 2013: Brabus G800

Brabus unveiled is sexy superpowered version of the ultra-rare, ultra-exclusive Mercedes G65 AMG back in March when it was shown in Geneva. Now the mighty G800 is back and it's got a temper for the Essen tuning show.

Being surrounded by so many tuned cars has not phased the Brabus 4x4 one bit. And that's because its 12-piston heart beats to the sound of 800 hp and peak torque of 1,420Nm. As a result, this is probably the only G-Class that will do the 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.

Brabus are masters of the tuned engine, and for this project they've added new turbochargers, new motor mounts, a big intercooler, new exhaust catalysts and the obligatory engine tune.

The body of the G800 is kitted out with new bumpers, sexy 23-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, illuminated running board caps, rear skirt, roof spoiler and lower door panels.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
