A very special world premiere calls for a befitting stage: The first BRABUS refinement range for the Range Rover celebrates its world debut under the California sun as part of the legendary Pebble Beach Concours d‘Elegance.
This is where the German luxury mobility brand presents its exclusive interpretation of the current generation of the British all-wheel-drive car plus three more BRABUS supercars from August 17 to 20, 2023.
BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, 46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, Internet www.brabus.com) customizes the Range Rover visually with an aerodynamic-enhancement range characterized by sporty and elegant styling.
The BRABUS Monoblock ZV “PLATINUM EDITION” hi-tech forged wheels with a king-sized diameter of 24 inches are equally exceptional. The suspension can be lowered with the BRABUS SportXtra module.
The BRABUS PowerXtra 600 performance upgrade is available for the Range Rover (P530) with long wheelbase pictured here. It increases peak power of the 4.4-liter V8 engine to 441 kW / 600 hp (591 bhp) and boosts peak torque to 800 Nm (664 lb-ft).
BRABUS MASTERPIECE interiors finished with consummate workmanship in every detail come in any desired color and many custom designs. They also leave nothing to be desired in the interior of the English SUV.
The BRABUS 600 supercar in the specification shown here sells for 388,000 euro (export price excluding statutory VAT in Germany).
The BRABUS design team’s decades of experience was naturally also brought to bear for the range of bodywork components for the current Range Rover models. The designers employed state-of-the-art 3D scanning and CAD technology to develop aerodynamic-enhancement components that captivate not only with their sporty-elegant styling, but also offer a superior fit and flawless surface quality. All components are made from carbon or PUR in OEM quality and can be installed on all vehicles of this model with short or long wheelbase.
The BRABUS front fascia replaces the production bumper. Its newly designed air intake layout gives the front of the Range Rover an even more distinctive look. Exposed-carbon elements are optionally available. They frame the large side air intakes and also add a decidedly sporty touch in the large central air intake. The centrally positioned front spoiler attaches to the bottom of the fascia and adds a further sporty highlight while also reducing front-axle lift at high speeds.
The rear appearance of the five-door car is redefined with the BRABUS rear fascia extension. It harmoniously integrates the four BRABUS carbon-titanium tailpipe embellishers, which are mated to the production exhaust system. In addition, the central rear diffusor in concert with the rear spoiler and the extensions on both sides of the fascia give the Range Rover sportier looks.
The extraordinary design naturally also includes BRABUS Monoblock alloys in four different designs with diameters of 23 or 24 inches. They are produced using cutting-edge forging and CNC machining technology. The BRABUS 600 pictured here is fitted with BRABUS Monoblock ZV 10Jx24 wheels front and back. They impress with their 20-spoke design with centerlock-look hub cover and their unusual black and shadow chrome color combination. What is more: their design is tough enough to enable these rims to easily withstand the high wheel loads generated by the luxury all-wheel-drive vehicle. BRABUS selected SportContact 6 tires from technology partner Continental for this vehicle. They are mounted on the front and rear axle in size 295/35 ZR 24.
The BRABUS SportXtra module is specifically tuned to these sporty street tires. It modifies the control of the stock air suspension and lowers the ride of the current Range Rover models by about 20 millimeters (0.8 in). The lower center of gravity results in even more agile handling without impairing the ride quality. At the same time, this measure optimizes the vehicle’s active safety.
The top-of-the-line model from Land Rover is thus also best prepared for more power. The BRABUS PowerXtra 600 performance upgrade increases the output of the turbocharged eight-cylinder engine of the P530 model by 51 kW / 70 hp (68 bhp). To effect this, a plug-and-play BRABUS module is wired into the electronic engine control unit of the SUV. It introduces new maps for injection and ignition and also increases the boost pressure. These measures boost peak power from 390 kW / 530 hp in stock configuration to 441 kW / 600 hp (523 to 591 bhp) at a low 6,000 rpm. Peak torque grows simultaneously from 850 to 900 Nm (627 to 664 lb-ft) at 4,000 rpm. As a result, the tuned luxury SUV accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds. The top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL also for the Range Rover.
Another focal point of the BRABUS options is exclusive refinement of the interior. Driver and passengers are welcomed by carbon scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo. Aluminum pedals and footrest add markedly sporty touches. To ensure safe operation at all times, the pedals feature integral plastic studs.
True masters of their craft in the company upholstery shop create exclusive BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior appointments with utmost precision by hand. Even the most extravagant customer requests can be fulfilled in virtually any conceivable color and in every minute detail. To this end, the master upholsterers draw upon particularly soft, breathable and highly durable leather. Dinamica microfiber can be used in the interior as an option.
The BRABUS 600 supercar pictured here is fitted with pistachio-colored leather, which adds a radiant contrast to the vehicle’s black paint finish. A particular specialty of BRABUS is the application of various exceedingly accurate quilting and perforation patterns such as the shell-shaped design shown here on the seats and the entire interior floor including the trunk. Black piping was integrated on select elements to contrast with the light-colored leather.
