As the finest Mercedes tuner, Brabus has to release at least one upgrade package for every new model, and here’s their take on the new E63 AMG performance saloon. Brabus has already created a monstrous V12 E-class based on the new type W212 model, so with the E63 AMG they decided to control their insane obsession with horsepower, so you only get 555 hp!
The normally aspirated 6.3 liter V8 of the E63 AMG develops 525hp. In the Brabus B63 S, thanks to a light upgrade kit it churns out 555 hp / 408 kW and 650 Nm/479 lb-ft. The conversion consists of two sport air filters, free-flow metal catalysts and newly programmed engine electronics.
The performance of E63 is also improved accordingly, as the 0 to 100 km.h sprint now takes 4.3 seconds and with Brabus’ Vmax unit it has a top speed of 320 km/h or 200 mph. The power is delivered to the ground via a new a limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 percent.
As usual, the car also comes with a discrete and very cool aerodynamic kit, which in B63’s case includes a new spoiler lip, side skirts, rear diffuser and bootlid spoiler, all made of carbon fiber. Also the front axle BRABUS aluminum sport fenders with lateral air outlets improve venting of the wheel houses and add a decidedly sporty note to the car’s appearance.
As for the interior, BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara upholstery along with wood or carbon fiber trimming create a wonderful place to be in. There are also some other changes like the new speedometer with 360-km/h (225-mph) dial and the very cool stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo.
You can always recognize Brabus cars just by looking at the wheels, as they use their own special designs all the time. For the E63 they offer Monoblock VI, E, Q or S wheels in size 9Jx20 on the front axle and in sizes 9.5Jx20 or 10.5Jx20 in back. They are fitted with Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires in size 245/30 ZR 20 in front and up to size 295/25 ZR 20 on the rear axle.
The car and all of its components are supported by Brabus renowned warranty of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers / 62,000 miles.
