Brabus Has Created A Supercar Crossover


This vehicle is fast even by fictional standards.

The Mercedes-AMGGLE 63 Coupe is a bit of an oddity. It’s not really a SUV or full-out sportscar, but Brabus has made it extremely clear as to what the GLE850 really is: asupercar. Now the term “supercar” has been used to describe a lot of thingslately, but what else would you call a 850 hp beast that can get to 200 mph? That’snearly as much power as a 2008 Ferrari FXX Evolution or enough to make youforget about the Bentley Bentayga.

To create this incrediblemonster, Brabus increased the standard 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8’sdisplacement to 6.0-liters by boring out the cylinders and by adding larger forgedpistons. There’s also a new billet crankshaft, along with longer piston rodswithin the engine. In addition to that, there are thicker downpipes, ECUtweaks and a new exhaust system. All of this results in a total of 850 hp and 1,069lb-ft of torque. That’s good enough for a zero to 62 mph time of 3.8 secondsand a top speed of 200 mph. Like we said, what Bentayga? The performanceupgrades wouldn’t be complete without a body kit and Brabus is one of the bestat making ludicrous vehicles.
