Brabus B63-S 700 Widestar Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, Dubai Police
With 536 horsepower, the G63's 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 is already pretty potent. However, Brabus fiddled with it and was able to extract an otherworldly 700 horses. With that extra power, Brabus says the B63-S 700 Widestar will do 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 149 mph--perfect for pursuit work.
The Brabus-tuned G-Wagen also features a wide body kit and 23-inch wheels. That looks pretty intimidating on top of the stock G-Class' boxy military bodywork, even without the police lights and brush guard.
The Brabus B63-S 700 Widestar police car may seem like a cheesy publicity stunt, but Brabus and the Dubai Police have serious plans for it. The SUV will be used to promote the "Tune It! Safe!" campaign, which started in Germany as a way to encourage drivers to modify their cars in a safe and legal manner. The program is being exported to the United Arab Emirates where, admittedly, there are a lot of modified cars.
While the Brabus G-Wagen is the epitome of over-the-top tuning, it will look positively mundane compared to some of the other cars in the Dubai Police motor pool, which includes a Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin One-77, and even a Bugatti Veyron.
The exotic police cars are primarily used for display in prominent tourist areas for promotional purposes.
