Brabus is usually known for their crazy modifications to Mercedes-Benz vehicles such as the 600 hp GLC or the angry little Smart ForTwo. However, for their latest creation, the German tuning house turned to the other side of the world for a little something different – Meet the Chinese market-only Wey VV7 GT.
For those who aren’t familiar, Wey is a Chinese luxury SUV brand under the Great Wall Motors umbrella – the same parent company as Haval. In fact, the VV7 is actually based off the Haval H6.
The partnership between Wey and Brabus dates back to approximately one year ago, where the Chinese marque signed an agreement with Brabus to develop limited-run special series and “enhanced versions” of the top-of-the-line WEY models. The VV7 GT is the first fruit of the partnership, and we must say it looks stunning!
Compared to the regular VV7 crossover, the GT model gets a Brabus-styled makeover, including widened fenders housing the new 21-inch wheels, and completely-redesigned front and rear bumpers – the latter includes an elaborate diffuser with integrated exhaust tips.
The GT model also get a redesigned rear combination light cluster, with three vertical LED clusters reminding us of the latest Peugeot vehicles.
Brabus also did some work to jazz-up the interior of the VV7 GT, although the Chinese carmaker did not provide any images of the interior.
Unlike regular Brabus models though, the WEY VV7 GT will unfortunately not be getting a powertrain upgrade. Under the hood sits the same engine as the regular VV7 – a 2.0-litre turbocharged mill producing 227 hp and 387 Nm of torque, paired to a seven-speed automatic gearbox to drive the front wheels.
The Wey VV7 GT will go on sale in China in July this year, with prices starting at CNY191,800 (approx. RM117K).
