To be able to celebrate his 45th anniversary with dignity, coach Brabus thinks big. It reveals a brand new model, called the Brabus 900 Crawler. This machine is described as a true supercar that takes the form of a four-seater off-road vehicle. Absolutely not road legal, the Brabus 900 Crawler is presumably based on a Mercedes-AMG G 63.

Although the buggy shares some technical elements with Affalterbach’s 4×4, it is based on a tubular chassis developed internally by Brabus. “By developing it, we wanted to build an ultimate race car that could take a ride through the dunes,” says Brabus. To do this, the 900 Crawler receives reinforced suspensions, specific aluminum shock absorbers and displays a ground clearance of 53 centimeters. This fighter is 4,624 meters long, 2,105 meters wide and 2,335 meters high. Its weight is set at just over two tons.

No doors, no windows and a visible frame

In terms of design, part of the Brabus 900 Crawler is clad with carbon fiber elements, for greater ease.

Apart from the bonnet, fenders and rear, the chassis is visible. It was painted red for the occasion to give a sporty style to the buggy, which rests on 20-inch forged rims.

The 900 Crawler has no doors or windows. Only a carbon fiber roof protects passengers from the sun’s rays.

900 hp and over 1,000 Nm of torque

Under the bonnet, this demonic machine straight out of a Mad Max movie features a powerful engine.

This is 900 hp Brabus 900 Rocket V8 biturbo. Attached to 1,250 Nm, the torque is actually electronically limited to 1,050 Nm.

The engine is paired with four-wheel drive, a nine-speed automatic transmission and a high-performance exhaust system.

According to the preparer approved by Mercedes-Benz, this Brabus 900 Crawler is capable of spraying 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds.

However, its future owners will not be able to achieve top speeds at the wheel, as its maximum speed is electronically limited to 160 km / h due to its off-road tires.

On board the German buggy, the atmosphere is sporty again. The cabin assumes a red and black look with visible carbon fiber accents.

Other elements painted in red are anodized, such as the pedals or the driver’s footrest.

The pilot also benefits from a digital instrument cluster, while the passenger is entitled to a screen that is mainly dedicated to GPS navigation.

An intercom to chat while walking around the desert

The upholstery consists of bucket seats in red leather, wrapped in a carbon fiber shell. Each seat is equipped with four-point seat belts.

An intercom in connection with helmets is finally present on board, so that those on board can more easily communicate with each other despite the V8’s angry sound and the air noise, which must be ubiquitous.


Limited to only 15 units, the Brabus 900 Crawler will begin deliveries in 2022. Its price is set at € 749,000.

Shortly said

45 years is something to celebrate. Brabus celebrates this anniversary in 2022 and unveils the Brabus 900 Crawler for the occasion. This off-road buggy based on the Mercedes-AMG G 63 develops 900 hp to 1,250 Nm of torque. Enough to shoot down to 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds. With a headroom of 53 centimeters, an exposed tubular chassis, specific tires and reinforced suspensions, it is able to overlook the desert. But not the roads as it is not homologated. Inevitably, the machine is therefore limited to a production of 15 copies, all of which will be sold at a price of € 749,000.
