The new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe 850 by Brabus is the most powerful
all-wheel drive coupe in the world. It will be officially unveiled at the Geneva
Motor Show next month.
With 838 hp (850 PS), 1,070 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds, the S63 AMG Coupe 850 by Brabus is impressive because of its unrivalled performance, but the German tuner has also enhanced its design with clear-coated carbon-fiber aerodynamic-enhancement components, 21-inch high-tech forged wheels and an exclusive Brabus fine leather interior.
Due to tire limitations, the top speed is restricted electronically to 217 mph (350 km/h).
The S63 AMG Coupe 850 by Brabus is available as a complete vehicle and can also be built on the basis of any existing current Mercedes S63 Coupe.
Enormous Increase in Power
The eight-cylinder twin-turbo engine of the S63 is thoroughly revised in the Brabus engine shop using a state-of-the-art machine park. The installation of a special Brabus crankshaft with longer stroke plus an enlarged cylinder bore and correspondingly larger forged pistons results in a displacement increase from 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc. The flow-optimizing fine-machining of both cylinder heads also contributes to the performance enhancement.
The two special Brabus turbochargers with larger compressor units and modified exhaust manifolds that replace the production turbos also play a major part in the enormous increase in power. As part of the engine conversion, special metal catalysts with 75-mm thick down pipes and the Brabus stainless-steel sports exhaust system with actively controlled butterfly valve are installed in addition.
Other modifications to the production engine are instantly apparent when the hood is opened: one of the key components of the engine conversion is the specially designed Brabus 850 intake module. It includes a larger air filter housing with enlarged intake cross-section, which is supplied with air via a special duct in the hood, and new carbon-fiber air ducts with significantly enlarged cross-sections.
The power is channeled to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission, which can also be shifted manually with the Brabus RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel, and the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. A variant with rear-wheel drive is also available.
