2022 Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack
At the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus announced the 800 Adventure XLP - a very cool truck based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. We loved the work the tuner has done with the project, but we were shocked when we heard the price: €575,630 (or about $631,055 when it was launched).

By about €150,000, to be more specific, for a car that this time is not even new - it comes with a mileage of 1,000 km (621 miles). The new package is called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP Superblack and, as the name suggesst, it is about giving the original car a darker, meaner look.

Jet-Powered Tesla vs PLAID, Need We Say More
