UPDATED for the ML-Class -- and this all certainly applies to the five-seat Benz SUV as much as it does the seven-seater!
Who are we to judge a megalux custom SUV?
Nobody - that is who.
At least, nobody with anywhere near the wealth or status to feel let down by the factory ML-Class AMG from Mercedes-Benz.
But in certain worlds, the factory model is just too plain, and too similar, to even find in a Brentwood organic produce parking lot -- let alone feel passionate about.
BRABUS takes things up a notch in every regard. More premium, much faster, more exclusive and *much* more expensive.
But these upgrades are so deep and thorough that they have a definite value proposition in their own right. Floor mats in wool or cashmere or - gasp - carpet?
Not fun or sensual on your bare feet in back. But Brabus quilted leather lining every surface of the cabin?
That is memorable and swanky. As is the teak flooring of the rear cargo area, the monstrous power upgrade of the engine, and even the body kit.
BRABUS is growing up, it seems - and away from flash-bang body kits and into a more refined, premium world.
Just like its customers, in Hollywood A-Lister cases.
The BRABUS B63S 700 Widestar for the ML-Class is a mighty fine way to show everyone else on the 405 that *you* are definitely a somebody.
