*One of the rarest Brabus conversions
*Complete 5.8 litre specification
*Low mileage


The Mercedes G500 Brabus is an incredibly rare iteration of the famous G-Wagon. The V8 engine is an impressively powerful unit, having been bored out from the standard 5.0 litre unit to 5.8 litres in the Brabus. The result was a hefty power increase which was accomplished by a new cylinder block and crankshaft that included a longer stroke and larger pistons. This example is a 2001 Japanese Import that has an exceptionally low mileage of 29,800 miles (47,680 kms). The car is a real head turner with the addition of its blacked out bull-bar, wide arch body kit, side pipes, tinted windows and tail lights. Inside, the Brabus features a bespoke steering wheel and leather seats with yellow stitched headrests. The interior is also equipped with a wealth of equipment that you would expect from a G-Wagon, including fully adjustable heated leather seats, air conditioning, and wood accents. Overall, this is a very good example, and the bodywork, paintwork, and interior represent a vehicle with this low a mileage. The V8 engine also starts, runs and drives very well. A rare opportunity. The G500 has recently been serviced and given a clean bill of health by renowned Mercedes specialists John Haynes in Worthing.
