For the past 40 years, Germany-based auto-tuner Brabus has been attempting to perfect perfection by performing after-market refinements on top Mercedes-Benz models like this one.

That’s why it’s hardly noteworthy that they looked at the standard Mercedes G500 4x42 and thought, “we can do better.” What they did to it though — that’s worth spilling some ink over.

As powerful as it is handsome, the Brabus take on the Mercedes G500 4x42 is an off-road-ready SUV with a bit more oomph than the factory model thanks to more than 100 extra HP (550 total).

The Brabus Adventure's V8 can blast the custom beast from 0-60 in only 6.7 seconds and tops out at 130 MPH, though it could probably destroy that mark if it weren’t limited electronically.

With a leather and alcantara interior that matches the exterior's slate gray paint job, Brabus added accessories like a winch, bumper and grille guards, remote-controlled LED searchlights, a roof rack with a LED light bar and a stainless steel exhaust with four side-mounted tailpipes.

You can’t purchase it yet, and Brabus hasn’t even disclosed its price, but you can at least drink it in below:
