Brabus Has Created A Supercar Crossover

/ Comments

This vehicle is fast even by fictional standards.

The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe is a bit of an oddity. It's not really a SUV or full-out sports car, but Brabus has made it extremely clear as to what the GLE850 really is: a supercar. Now the term "supercar" has been used to describe a lot of things lately, but what else would you call a 850 hp beast that can get to 200 mph? That's nearly as much power as a 2008 Ferrari FXX Evolution or enough to make you forget about the Bentley Bentayga.

To create this incredible monster, Brabus increased the standard 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8's displacement to 6.0-liters by boring out the cylinders and by adding larger forged pistons. There's also a new billet crankshaft, along with longer piston rods within the engine. In addition to that, there are thicker downpipes, ECU tweaks and a new exhaust system. All of this results in a total of 850 hp and 1,069 lb-ft of torque. That's good enough for a zero to 62 mph time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. Like we said, what Bentayga? The performance upgrades wouldn't be complete without a body kit and Brabus is one of the best at making ludicrous vehicles.

There's a host of carbon-fiber bodywork on the vehicle, which includes a front spoiler lip, a new diffuser on the rear bumper and carbon fiber trim for the side air outlets. The vehicle can be fitted with a range of wheels from a moderate 21-inch set to flashy 23-inch wheels. We're not fans of sporty SUVs, but the Brabus GLE850 is a monster among more refined vehicles.
