Specially modified Brabus to see service with the Dubai police force

A new concept from Brabus promoting “responsible and safe vehicle tuning” will make its debut at the Dubai motor show this week.

The modified Mercedes G63 AMG, dubbed the B637 - 700 Widestar, has been tuned to 690bhp and will be used by the Dubai police force following its debut. The car is powered by a 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine. It features all-wheel drive and has a top speed of 149mph, reaching 60mph in 4.9 seconds.

Other modifications include bespoke 23-inch wheels and Brabus's Dynamic Ride Control suspension system.

Brabus says part of the idea behind the police-liveried car is to raise awareness of the 'Tune It Safe' campaign to promote responsible vehicle tuning.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
