Brabus 900 Crawler is brutal compared to the 900 HP Bronco Raptor

When it comes to modifying luxury SUVs, few do it better than Brabus. This legendary German tuner has specialized in Mercedes-Benz vehicles decades ago, and nowadays loves to build incredibly powerful versions of Mercedes-AMG and Maybach cars. 

Brabus isn't just limited to the luxury stuff: many of its creations are more than capable of handling serious off-roading, but nothing it's built comes close to offering the capability and thrills of it. Brabus calls it the 900 Crawler, and the end result is nothing like the G-Class it looks like. 

It may look like a Mercedes-Bmodified G-Class enz, but it's a fully customized machine that isn't even road legal. Buckle up and take a deep breath, 'cause this thing is crazy, and it's in a range of insane creations by Brabus.

For its 45th anniversary, Brabus has decided to build the ultimate luxury off-road machine. The Brabus 900 Crawler is the company's first in-house developed vehicle and features a fully customized chassis and tubular frame. 

The exterior features notable highlights such as the massive vented hood, skid plates under the body, LED headlights and a rear-mounted fifth wheel.

The 900 Crawler is powered by the “Brabus Rocket 900” power plant, which is essentially a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo V8 used in various AMG applications, including the Mercedes-AMG G63. 

It starts out as a 4.0-liter V8 before the Brabus goes up to 4.5 liters, fits stronger pistons, a billet crankshaft, and two big turbos that boost 1.4 bar to produce a monumental 888 brake horsepower and 922 lb-ft of torque. This tremendous amount of power is channeled to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission. 

A 26.4-gallon fuel cell and a series of high-pressure fuel pumps keep this beast fueled. An electronically adjustable exhaust system with three-inch downpipes makes the Crawler sound like it wants to destroy the human race.

Underneath the entire carbon fiber bodywork, the Crawler hides a set of portal axles, height-adjustable chainstays with four-way adjustable damping. The exterior is simply some carbon-Kevlar body panels attached to a steel security cell, and it looks badass. The Crawler rolls on a set of 20-inch Brabus Monoblock HD Platinum Edition forged wheels with 40-inch tires.

The performance numbers are as impressive as the styling: ground clearance is 20.9 inches with 6.3 inches of spring travel, gross weight is a reasonable 4,553 pounds, and the Crawler will hit 62 mph in just 3 .4 seconds. Due to off-road tires, Brabus limited its top speed to just under 100 mph.

Inside the cabin, you'll find four bucket seats upholstered in SilverTex, an intercom system and a GPS-based off-road navigation system. Only 15 of these crazy machines will be built in 2022, with another 10 in 2023 and 2024. The price? Just €749,000 ($ 791,038). One Ford Bronco Raptor there's nothing about it.
