Brabus is up to its old tricks again, presenting the all-new B50 — its take on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4MATIC. In typical Brabus form, this luxury land yacht has been given a full in-house overhaul, making the B50 look like it’s a flagship supercar slayer from the tuning house’s top-line of machines, when in fact, it barely even touches the power of Mercedes-AMG’s S63, or even Brabus’ own take on this car.

This is because the B50 is based on the S500, which features a three-liter, four-valve engine that’s good for 435 HP in stock form. Now, Brabus boosts power up to 500 HP and 435 lb-ft of torque, making the four-door luxury executive saloon sprint from 0-62 MPH in just 4.7 seconds, before hitting the electronically-limited top speed of 155 MPH.

However, we suspect power isn’t the reason you’d opt for Brabus to tune your S-Class. If you wanted power, it’d be the S63 to go for, after all. So, Brabus also gives the B50 plenty of aesthetic updates, from a new front spoiler that makes the fascia look more aggressive all while reducing front-axle lift, while new surrounds on the air intakes also add a new-found level of aggression. New LED lights on the side add a blingy and flashy touch, while elements such as a soon-coming naked-carbon rear spoiler lip and sport inserts on the rear bumper further increase the sporty edge.

Last but by no means least comes the black-chrome tailpipe finish and the new set of BRABUS Monoblock alloy wheels, available in 19”, 20”, and a super-sized 21”, which will sit nicely thanks to the 1” suspension lowering. Brabus has also completely overhauled the interior, of which you can see more of in the gallery above.
