The standard nine-speed handles shifting duties, but with the addition of aluminum paddles behind the steering wheel. Acceleration time slides down another quantum, the 800 Widestar roaring from standstill to 62 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds. That's faster than a Porsche Cayman GTS. Top speed remains electronically capped at 149 mph, for reasons that become obvious well before 149 mph.
Otherwise the playbook here cribs straight from the 700 Widestar. There are carbon power bulges atop the hood, and a new front fascia with integrated LEDs. The manspreading fender flares are vented and illuminated front and rear, throwing light on the running boards when the doors are unlocked. Just ahead of the rear wheels, an active exhaust swaps between neighbor-friendly "Coming Home" mode and roarty Sport mode. The backside shows off a rooftop wing, a naked carbon spare wheel cover, and a fancy skid plate. As a final touch, the 23-inch Monoblock F forged wheels hide brake calipers that match the "classy Brabus fine leather interior" color.
And as with the 700 Widestar, Brabus hasn't clued us into pricing. But does it matter? When you simply have to have something, you do what it takes.
