Brabus 800 Adventure XLP And Its Drone Pad Showcased On Video

The cancellation of the 2020 Geneva Motor Show left the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP without a real public debut. The hardcore Mercedes-Benz G-Class based pickup was revealed online just weeks before the coronavirus pandemic hit the world and never received the attention it deserved. Fortunately, there is a new video that reveals all the little secrets of the vehicle.

Courtesy of Supercar Blondie on YouTube, the 9-minute clip begins with a detailed exterior presentation that reminds us of just how huge the 800 Adventure XLP is. As a reminder, the wheelbase has been lengthened by 19.7 inches (50 centimeters) to accommodate the cargo area and, in total, the truck measures 17.4 feet (5.31 meters) or 27.1 inches (68, 9 centimeters) longer than a stock G63.

When the off-roader was unveiled earlier this year, the official press release briefly mentioned an optional Wingcopter drone that attaches to the cargo area which, by the way, has a large window with a equally large wiper. The company calls its drone the Wingcopter and it’s a time-consuming upgrade – see! – $ 100,000.

And just because you like numbers, here’s another awesome number: The top speed of this drone is 150 miles per hour (241 kilometers per hour). Yes, that’s not a typo – the drone is actually faster than the truck which has a top speed of 130 mph (209 km / h).

Want more numbers? 789 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque from a heavily modified version of Mercedes’ twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. All that power ensures that the 0-100 km / h (0-100 km / h) sprint takes just 4.8 seconds.

One last issue? The price. Before all options, the Brabus 800 Adventure XLP starts at 575,630 euros ($ 626,236 at current exchange rates). Sky is the limit and you can easily specify an example for 666,386 euros ($ 725,064) – or even more.
