Based on the Mercedes-Benz GLS 63 AMG Brabus has created a monster that redefines the term Super SUV. Christened Brabus Mercedes GLS 850 XL, this massive and massively powerful family bus is utterly pointless as far as practical matters are concerned, but totally and completely awesome in every other way.

As the name suggests, Brabus Mercedes GLS 850 XL has the beefy twin-turbo AMG eight-cylinder engine which Brabus has upped to six liters and modified so deeply, it doesn’t even resemble the standard unit. The result of this engineering work is 850 horsepower and a mind-boggling peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft). And what that means in the real world is a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).

You may not need all that power and speed in your life, especially if you want to use this SUV for school run and taking the kids to soccer practice. But what you definitely want is those looks. Brabus Mercedes GLS 850 XL comes with a naked carbon fiber aero kit including a massive front spoiler, Brabus grille, side skirts, fender flares, and rear diffuser with integrated matte black tailpipes. Then there is the tailor-made 23-inch BRABUS Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” hi-tech forged wheels which give the GLS the look of a super hero car.

The exterior and the engine on the Brabus GLS 850 are so amazing, you don’t really care that they have also styled the interior with fine leather, brown carbon, and aluminum pedals and sills.
