Can't wait for the new AMG S63e? Brabus has worked its magic on the new S-Class.
It was only a matter of time before Brabus worked its magic on the new Mercedes S-Class. For those who can't wait for the new AMG S63e to arrive, the German tuner's take on the luxury sedan features new aggressive aero components, a revamped interior, and, of course, a massive performance upgrade. Dubbed the Brabus B50, the custom S-Class is based on the S500 4Matic. As standard, the S500 4Matic is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, with an EQ Boost integrated starter-generator adding an extra 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
For the Brabus B50, the tuner has added a plug-and-play that remaps the injection, ignition timing, and turbo boost pressure. As a result, the output has increased to 500 PS (493 hp) and 435 lb-ft. With this extra muscle, the S-Class will now sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds.
Brabus also offers a performance upgrade for the diesel-powered 400d 4MATIC, increasing the output to 365 hp and 553 lb-ft, and is already working to extract more power from other gasoline, diesel, and hybrid variants.
For owners of the S-Class with the AMG Line appearance package installed, Brabus can also enhance the styling with a sporty, aero-enhancing body kit that gives the S-Class a more menacing appearance. These components include an aggressive front spoiler that reduces the front axle lift, new surrounds for the front bumper air intakes that add more visual flair, and new LED sidelights. At the rear, Brabus has also added a rear bumper insert and new tailpipes with a black chrome finish. A naked-carbon rear spoiler lip will be available at a later date.
As for the wheels, Brabus offers a selection of Monoblock alloy wheels measuring 19, 20, or 21 inches. The model shown in the accompanying images sits on Brabus Monoblock M Platinum Edition forged wheels sized 9Jx21 at the front and 10.5Jx21 at the rear painted in black to match the exterior. Completing the Brabus B50's sporty makeover is a suspension lowering kit that lowers the ride height by up to one inch.
Inside, Brabus has revamped the luxury interior with an eight-piece scuff plate set with Brabus logos that can light up or change colors in sync with the car's ambient lighting. The model shown is trimmed in a two-tone leather interior with contrasting porcelain and black accents. High-quality leather is also applied to the dashboard and the center console, and the switches and carbon elements of the dashboard are coated in shadow chrome.
