For most of us, the Mercedes-Benz E63S 4MATIC+ is more than enough of a car. However, Brabus disagrees. So, staying true to form, the tuning company has unveiled the Brabus 800, which takes the E63S to new — and much more powerful — heights.
Starting with the engine, Brabus has tuned the turbocharged four-liter V8 to produce 800 HP and 1,000 Nm of torque, which now sends the executive saloon car to 62 MPH in three seconds flat before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 186 MPH. This is achieved thanks to a set of new turbochargers that deliver a boost pressure of 1.6 bar, and to manage all of the extra ventilation this level of power requires, Brabus has fitted the car with a revised body kit.
For example, a new set of carbon air intakes have been developed and now find themselves integrated into the radiator grille on the left and right sides, while a host of naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components can also be added for a more aggressive look. A top-spec, fully kitted-out Brabus 800 will come with a new front lip, a rear spoiler on the trunk lid of the sedan (the wagon doesn’t get this due to its shape), as well as a new diffuser insert that helps nestle the set of quad tips that connect to the stainless-steel Brabus high-performance exhaust system, in turn delivering a visceral acoustic experience.
To make the Brabus 800 look more menacing, it now rides on 21” Brabus Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” Z forged wheels that tuck under the wheel arches thanks to a new airlift suspension, lowering the car by 10mm or 20mm depending on the drive mode selected. And of course, the interior has also been elevated to match the powerful exterior. Expect plenty of leather, Alcantara, stainless-steel, and carbon fiber to be found inside, which upgrades parts such as the aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel that control the nine-speed automatic transmission when in manual mode.
