The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP is the German brand’s rugged take on the Mercedes-AMG G63 that’s debuting at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The company overhauls the SUV by adding a pickup bed to the back and tuning the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to 789 horsepower and an earth-moving 738 pound-feet of torque. For conquering harsh terrain, the drivetrain gains portal axles. As an extra touch, a Wingcopter drone attaches to the back.
