Brabus Crawler gets to grips with the Grabber X3

Conti Tuning Day is dedicated to a rare breed of tuned cars. Custom saloons, hatchbacks, coupes and 4x4s from Germany’s best tuners showcase their power on a high-speed course.

Continental’s Tuning department hosted its 44th Tuning Day event on 20th August at its Contidrom testing facility near Hannover in Germany.

This special edition event revolved around vehicles from Brabus, with the vehicle tuner bringing along an impressive 10 high-performance vehicles for comprehensive testing, including a brand-new customised Mercedes EQS and the Brabus 900 Crawler.

To ensure the right tyre performance beyond the high-speed track, the latter was equipped with the Grabber X3, General Tire’s off-road specialist.

The Brabus 900 Crawler boasts 900 hp under its carbon bonnet, so no need to hide from its on-the-road competitors. The Crawler accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and is limited to a top speed of 160 km/h.

If its tyres are to last, even on difficult terrain, they must indeed meet stringent requirements. As a 4×4 tyre model developed not only for on-road use but also for off-road use, the Grabber X3 from General Tire is probably a natural choice here.

With its aggressive tread pattern and innovative product features, the Mud Terrain tyre offers maximum durability.

According to General Tire, this tyre impresses with its three main technologies: An innovative tread to ensure maximum traction in mud; an excellent grip to guarantee safety, even on loose surfaces; and an exceptional cut resistance for reliable performance, even on rocky terrain.

The Grabber X3 is available in 38 different sizes for 15- to 20-inch rims.
