Brabus Widestar

GENEVA — Probably one of the most aptly named concepts at this week's Geneva auto show is the Brabus Widestar, a wide-track version of the Mercedes-Benz ML63. The German tuner, known for its breathtaking high-performance cars, says the Widestar package is available for all current M-Class models.

As a result, horsepower rises to 550 hp and peak torque grows from 465 to 479 pound-feet. The Widestar sprints from zero to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 171 mph.

The Widestar gets new front and rear fascias and a front spoiler bumper with three air inlets and four integrated auxiliary headlights. The cabin features stainless steel doorsills with illuminated Brabus logos, a sport steering wheel and leather-covered door trim pieces. Options include an electric folding table and a high-performance brake system.
