Brabus Gives The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S A Shot In The Arm
A handsome sedan with 800 PS and 1,000 Nm? Take my money.
The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S is known as one of the most powerful sedans for a very good reason. With 612 PS and 850 Nm of torque on tap, it can reach 100 km/h faster than you can say its full name. But if you crave more power, Brabus may have something that can satiate your hunger.
Simply known as the 800, the latest offering from Bottrop comes with a host of mechanical upgrades for the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. These include new high-performance turbocharges with increased boost pressure, a valve-controlled sports exhaust system and of course, the customary Brabus B40S-800 PowerXtra module that improves injection and ignition mapping.
The resulting output of 800 PS and 1,000 Nm enables the sedan to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.0 seconds (0.4 seconds faster) and reach a top speed of 300 km/h. Like the E 63 S, power is sent to the ground by a nine-speed automatic transmission through Mercedes-Benz’s proprietary 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system.
As with other Brabus-badged cars, the 800 comes with a full bodykit comprising of glossy carbon parts and Brabus ‘B’ logos on the front grille, bonnet and rear lid. Rounding off the new look are carbon tailpipes and a set of 21-inch Monoblock Platinum Edition Z 10-spoke wheels with red pinstriping. Of course, the interior can be specced based on personal preference.
Pricing for the Brabus 800 starts from 254,349 euros (RM1.27 million), so it’s not exactly what you call ‘affordable’. But as they say, you get what you pay for.
The wolf in sheep’s clothing – maximum driving fun in a sporty, elegant limousine. The brand new BRABUS 800, based on the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Facelift combines a sleek, urbane appearance with superior performance in hallmark BRABUS fashion. Equipped with a 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 producing 588 kW / 800 hp, this sport limousine provides an all-out racetrack feeling without sacrificing its signature, business looks. With a tailor-made carbon aerodynamic enhancement concept, 21-inch high-tech forged wheels and a valve-controlled sports exhaust system, the BRABUS 800 is the best of both worlds!
Time for an upgrade – the new exterior design of the BRABUS 800 compliments the uncompromising power of the limousine. Our purpose-built aerodynamic-enhancement concept greatly improves both the looks and the driving experience. In the front, a custom spoiler lip in combination with a set of refined BRABUS air inlets on the left and right gives the car a new, striking face and reduces lift on the front axle which optimizes the ride stability at high speeds. The BRABUS rear spoiler and diffusor, likewise designed for optimal aerodynamic balance, provide further downforce and complete the sporty, elegant appearance of the BRABUS 800 with a unique flair.
Outstanding performance – under the hood, the BRABUS B40S-800 PowerXtra performance upgrade raises the power of the 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged V8 from its standard configuration of 450 kW / 612 hp to its namesake 588 kW / 800 hp, with excellent performance delivery, flawless stability and reliability. Through improved injection and ignition mapping as well as new, specially configured high-performance turbochargers with increased boost pressure and a Nine-speed automatic transmission that can be shifted either automatically or manually using the ergonomically shaped BRABUS RACE aluminum shift paddles on the steering wheel, the BRABUS 800 accelerates from 0 – 100 km / h in just 3.0 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 300 km / h.
Of course, in tandem with the performance of a modern sport limousine, the BRABUS 800 also has the fitting acoustics, courtesy of its stainless-steel, valve-controlled BRABUS high-performance exhaust system with carbon tailpipes, which unleashes the full baritone of the V8 with an extra powerful sound and further perfects power delivery by reducing the exhaust backpressure. Additionally, the driver has the option to choose between a variety of different modes and volume levels, ranging from the discreet, very quiet “coming home” mode to the full bore “Race” mode.
The exclusive looks of the BRABUS 800 are rounded off by high-tech, forged 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” Z wheels with a ten-spoke design, tailor made and accentuated with red pin striping to match the signature red BRABUS stripes in the grille. With the BRABUS suspension module, the ride height can be adjusted by ten to twenty millimeters depending on the selected drive mode, further improving the handling of the limousine while delivering an exceptional driving experience. The optimal high-performance tires are provided by BRABUS technology partners: Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.
Naturally, no BRABUS conversion would be complete without our signature interior refinements. Headlining the product range for the brand new BRABUS 800 is a fully equipped fine leather interior characterized by stainless steel doorsills with an illuminated BRABUS logo, which changes color to match the ambient lighting in the interior, as well as several sporty accessories such as BRABUS door pins and aluminum pedals. Individual wishes can be fulfilled in the in-house saddlery based entirely on personal preference.
