Brabus Releases 600 horsepower, 800 Nm and 300 km/h Mercedes C 63S


A rated power output of 600HP. A peak torque of 800Nm. A sprint time of 3.8 seconds from 0 – 100 km/h. A top speed of 300km/h. Plus exclusive sporty options from aerodynamic enhancement and wheels to the suspension and the interior: BRABUS presents an extensive tuning program for the new Mercedes C 63S in a world premiere at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt this coming week.

Sedan or wagon: BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 600 engine tuning makes the new Mercedes C 63S even more a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The BRABUS engineers used state-of-the-art test rig technology and extensive test drives on racetracks and public roads to develop a performance kit that boosts the power output of the turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 by 90HP.


BRABUS adapts a plug-and-play auxiliary control module to the electronic engine management system. It updates the engine controls with new mapping for injection and ignition while increasing the boost pressure. As a result, rated power output jumps from standard 510HP to 600HP at a low 5,800rpm. At the same time, peak torque grows from 800Nm, available on a plateau between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. BRABUS recommends high-performance motor oil from technology partner MOTUL.


In concert with the seven-speed sports transmission, a C 63S sedan with BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 600 performance tuning launches from rest to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds. The slightly heavier wagon takes just a tenth of a second longer for the same exercise. The top speed of both body styles jumps from 300km/h.

The strong suites of the BRABUS sport exhaust system for the Mercedes C 63S are its sound and its performance. The all-stainless exhaust reduces backpressure and features controlled butterfly valves for an electronically controlled sound management. A switch in the cockpit lets drivers choose between a subtle “coming home” mode and the open position of the butterfly valves for a markedly powerful exhaust note of the twin-turbo V8.


Reducing aerodynamic lift is of tremendous importance for a car as fast as this. For this reason, the BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop equally efficient and visually stunning bodywork components manufactured from clear-coated carbon with a matte or shiny surface seal. The air outlets in the front fenders add even more emphasis to the sporty-elegant appearance of the C 63S.

In addition, the production front bumper of the sedan and the wagon can be upgraded with a BRABUS spoiler lip. Carbon surrounds for the side air intakes give the top-of-the-line C-Class model even more athletic looks.


A diffuser and a rear spoiler can make the rear of the sedan even more aerodynamically effective. Clear-coated carbon covers for the exterior mirrors represent another sporty feature.

The new 20-inch king-sized BRABUS Monoblock T wheels play a crucial role in the car’s athletic appearance and further enhanced driving dynamics. The five-spoke wheels with carbon inlays on each spoke are mounted on the top-of-the-line model of the current C-Class in size 8.5Jx20 on the front axle and in size 9.5Jx20 at the rear. They are shod with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and up to 275/30 ZR 20 on the rear axle.


Of course, exclusive interior refinement is also available for all Mercedes C 63 models. The product lineup ranges from stainless-steel scuff plates with color-changing backlit BRABUS logo and ergonomic aluminum paddle shifters to a speedometer with 340-km/h scale (211 mph).

The company upholstery shop creates BRABUS fine leather luxury interiors tailored to individual customer preferences from a combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara. BRABUS offers wood and carbon trim sets in any desired color and with a variety of surface finishes to complement the leather appointments.


The BRABUS fine leather interior of the show car at the IAA 2015 is made from all-black leather with mandarin-colored seams. Appropriately, all chrome body parts are painted in the same black color as the vehicle.
