In case the new G63 AMG wasn’t enough to leave you salivating, Brabus has unveiled their upgrade for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.  You can read on or you can skip straight to the video that flashes back and forth between the standard G63 AMG and the Brabus Widestar version.   The video is a bit on the long side but gives a great comparrison between the two.

The Brabus G-Class will be on display at this year’s Essen Motor Show, starting on Saturday. Power for the Brabus G63 AMG comes from the same twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine, although it’s been upgraded to output 620 HP (456 kW) – 76 HP more than the standard 544 HP (400 kW). Torque has also increased to 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) over the standard 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) – a 45 lb-ft increase.

Electronically adjustable ride control suspension with comfort and sport modes and an adjustable valve-controlled exhaust for a louder or quieter sound have also been added to the Brabus Widestar G63. Other additions include LED illumination for the side steps, a new set of 23-inch alloy wheels, satin silver color accents in the side body mouldings, rear bumper fascia and an aerodynamic front spoiler in silver with integrated LEDs.

Not to be left out, the interior receives new leather upholstery and upgraded materials that are available in a wide variety of colors.
