Armored SUVs are enjoying great popularity. Brabus, a company based in Bottrop, Germany, transforms standard G-Class models into fully armored special protection vehicles. The combination of full armor, made of hot-forged steels, and special glazing gives the colossal car the certificate of protection class VR6, which is mandatory for state limousines, for example. Our documentary presents the impressive vehicle fabrications and shows their special features.
Mercedes- Benz G-Class Brabus Invicto The Four-Wheeled Fortress | Full Documentary
Over the years, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class has been mostly linked to baddies in films. Most often than not, when you see a G-Wagen arriving in a movie scene, it’s either being driven by a mob boss or a henchman is chauffeuring them around in one.
For those who are looking to ride in a G-Class not only in style but like a big boss or a high-profile statesman, the Brabus Invicto has them covered. The level of armoring in this SUV is graded at VR6, which means it can protect its occupants against bullets fired from an AK-47 assault rifle or similarly powered firearms. It also comes with an optional ERV blast protection that is engineered to withstand detonation from an explosive. For short, the Invicto is quite a ride if you got plenty of enemies in real life.
What’s so impressive about the Invicto is that even with its additional 2,205 lbs. weight after the Brabus armoring, it can still sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 8.2 seconds and it can reach a max speed of up to 130 mph. That’s thanks to its tuned powertrain that’s configured to deliver up to 800 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. This provides a quick getaway when the going gets tough.
