Over the years, Mercedes-Benz have managed to transform the G-Class from a no-nonsense all-terrain vehicle, to something that’s more of a cultural icon/fashion statement.
In their efforts, they went from AMG-powered models, all the way to something like the G63 AMG 6×6, a six-wheeled beast that might as well live on Mars than somewhere with an infrastructure.Their latest creation however was slightly more sensible than the 6×6, yet still bonkers in its own right. We’re talking of course about the G500 4×4², powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, good for 422 PS and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft).
Earlier this year in Geneva, Brabus also launched the G550 Adventure, an even more rugged version of the regular G500 4×4², with more power and even more off-roading ability.
The G550 Adventure puts down 550 PS (542 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft), enough to take this three tonne SUV from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.7 seconds.
It’s also got underbody protection, a winch, hood scoop, extra lighting units and an electronically adjustable suspension – pretty much everything you’d need if you were a Jurassic World employee.
