Brabus B50 Boosts the S 500 into AMG Territory

Because speed and power can still look elegantly understated.

While both the Mercedes-Benz S 500 and its killer brother from AMG, the S63, hardly leave any room for improvement, there’s onefirm that can always be counted on to create an even better Benz. With its newB50 S-Class, Brabus has taken the more toned-down look of the S 500 and chargedit with enough energy and performance to take on the best of AMG. The B50 isbased on a plug-and-play kit that reworks the S’s ECU, bringing it from 455horsepower and 516 lb-ft to a whopping 540hp and 605 lb-ft.

Yes, that may be less than the S63’s 585 and 664, but Brabushas created the sort of package that fits those who want to go fast, but do notwant to attract too much attention while doing so. Even with the full body kit and Brabusbadging, the B50 still offers an elegant sleeper package that’ll run from0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds.
