Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is a Super Duper S63 Coupe
When it comes to full-size, high-powered luxury coupes, you can’t do much better than the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe. Its 5.5L twin-turbo V8 sends the better part of 577 horsepower to all four wheels, which means it is capable of hooliganistic feats unbecoming of a big luxury coupe. And now the Benz buffers at Brabus have figured out how to move the S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe an even bigger delinquent.
The Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe, as it is so verbosely called, looks even meaner than the stock AMG machine, with carbon fiber accents applied to the front and rear fascias, as well as a subdued carbon fiber rear spoiler. Brabus plans to offer a variety of its own wheel styles and finishes with this package ranging from 18” to 22” in diameter, and a suspension lowering module that reduces ride height by 0.6”. Inside, Brabus gives the four-seat cockpit a thorough going-over, with custom-tailored leather, Alcantara, carbon fiber and Shadow Gold chrome trim throughout, as well as new sill plates, shift paddles and a 250 mph speedometer.
But you’ll want to keep your eyes fixed firmly on the road ahead when on the move. Brabus has bumped engine displacement up to 5.9L and installed new turbochargers, a less restrictive intake tract and exhaust system, and a reprogrammed ECU. The result is 838 horsepower and an electronically-limited 848 lb.-ft of torque; Brabus says the engine could produce as much as 1,069 lb.-ft, but they want to allow the 7-speed automatic transmission and AWD system to lead long and healthy lives. Of course, if you want to blast to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and onward to an electronically-governed top speed of 217 mph, that might shorten the life expectancy of those components to a certain extent…
