When you are in doubt, just add girth. That is definitely not what your surgeon said, but it is what Mercedes’ top performance tuning art BARBUS 700 Wide-star has done.
The 2019 classic Mercedes Benz G classic which launched earlier this year has lastly been given the BARBUS treatment and the outcome is the 700 Wide star – and it is as subtle as an eggplant on human exploding hormones.
The most noticeable aspect is the SUV’s brutish extensive body kit that sees redesigned front and read as well as paired to widened and vented wheel arches that include a full of 100 MM to the stock structure’s width. If that is enough to help stand out, BARBUS also provides a vented hood, a violent spiller and LED roof-mounted light bar.
Wheel size choices are series of 20-23 inches to accommodate for the huge BARBUS brakes but it is the inner which will actually impress. A sports steering wheel done with center maker strip is flanked with aluminum paddle shifters and elegantly stitched diamond leather BARBUS insignia just about ubiquitously.
Below the bonnet resides an engine that is pretty much a reference to its name, an increased 4.0 – liter double turbo V8 which today makes 700HP and 960Nm of torque. These numbers are enough to see the BARBUS 700 Wide star complete with 0-100 KMH sprint in just 4.4 seconds.
A revised tire out which has 2 modes of loudness will make sure your neighbors know when you are home – or not depending on if you love them.
Speaking of currency, there’s no cost for the BARBUS 700 Wide-star yet. That being said, if you’ve to ask, it’s possibly too much. This decision to hold its open reveal at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show, so that’d give some viewpoint about who it thinks its potential purchasers are. We anticipate the usual G 63 to start around $150,000 USD when it arrives in dealerships later this year.
