Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the automotive industry and even specific cars altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular supercars available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.


BRABUS is known for taking the already performance-driven line-up from Mercedes-Benz AMG and squeezing out every ounce of possible horsepower using additional engine upgrades. The 2021 BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR is built off of the newly redesigned Mercedes-AMG G63 platform, perfectly blending performance, comfort, and technology. The exterior features the full carbon fiber BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody kit, giving the new super SUV a completely new aggressively aerodynamic look for the track or backroads. The fender flares at the front and rear axle add 4 inches to the width of the current G-Model. In addition, their integrated LEDs illuminate the running boards between the flares as soon as a door handle is pulled or the central locking system is activated. Keeping the BRABUS 800 connected to the road is a set of 23-inch forged wheels wrapped in Continental, Pirelli, or YOKOHAMA performance tires. The already luxurious AMG G63 interior cabin receives a generous update with each build from BRABUS, allowing the customer complete control while in the design process, where the extravagant BRABUS fine leather styles impress with exclusivity, endless color, material combinations, and outstanding quality. Enjoy the premium driving experience with state-of-the-art audio and visual technology, featuring the Mercedes-AMG full LED display and Bang&Olufsen sound system. Inside and out, the 2021 BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR is the epitome of luxury performance in the shape of an SUV.

Although the exterior of the BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR screams performance, the real power is found underneath the glossy carbon fiber hood. Each 4.0L Twin-Turbocharged 8-cylinder engine is modified using BRABUS performance parts such as the PowerXtra engine upgrade and valve-controlled sport exhaust system, catapulting the vehicle to 800-horsepower and 737 ft-lb of torque at 6,600 RPM. This engine gives off-roader performance capabilities that are absolutely exceptional for a vehicle of this category: The all-wheel-drive car sprints from rest to 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 149 mph. Delivering the power to the wheels is the nine-speed automatic transmission that can optionally be shifted manually with the ergonomic BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR boasts mind-blowing performance from a vehicle that can fit the whole family.

Why To Buy

The already popular Mercedes-Benz G-Class continues to dominate the market for luxury performance SUVs, just as BRABUS does in the industry of modified high-performance vehicles. The BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR provides a true one-of-a-kind driving experience for a select few lucky customers, as the opportunity to purchase a BRABUS build is rare in itself. The ability to quickly tackle any rough terrain or track highlights the BRABUS as a fully functional everyday driver. The growing demand for the notorious body style of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class ensures that not only will the 800 WIDESTAR be a fun drive, but also a worthy investment.
