Brabus Turns Mercedes-AMG E63 Into 700-Horsepower Animal


0-62 mph takes just 3.2 seconds in the super sedan.

Should the already potent Mercedes-AMG E63 not be powerful enough for you, Brabus has revealed its new take on the German super sedan following extensive test drives on racetracks and public roads. Set to premiere next week at Frankfurt, Brabus has extracted an additional 87 horses from the AMG E63’s turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 boosting the total output to 700-horsepower, thanks to a plug-and-play auxiliary control unit that upgrades the electronic engine control unit with new mapping for injection and ignition, and increases boost pressure.

Torque has also been increased from 627 lb-ft to 701 lb-ft. Delivered to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4Matic system, the increased power allows the E63 sedan to sprint from 0-62 mph in an impressive 3.2 seconds, while the heavier wagon is only slightly slower off the line, reaching 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds. Top speed for both variants is 186 mph, but Brabus says it is already working on an Vmax Unit that will further increase this. A fully stainless exhaust system lowers the back pressure and features exhaust flaps providing controlled sound management. Drivers can select a “Coming Home” mode that makes the exhaust note more discrete to avoid disturbing urban areas.

As with other modified Mercedes from Brabus, the tuning company has added an assortment of aerodynamic bodywork components made from lightweight carbon fiber optimized in a wind tunnel to withstand the brutal speed the sedan is capable of. A front lip spoiler is located beneath the E63’s bumper, reducing aerodynamic front axle lift. The front bumper sports larger air intakes, while a spoiler and diffuser has been added to the rear. Tailor-made 21-inch wheels round off the exterior modifications. Brabus promises unlimited customization for the interior, which can be fitted with an extensive choice of leather and Alcantara materials in a “virtually endless” range of colors.

To match the E63’s sporty exterior, Brabus also offers aluminium paddle shifters and pedals. A backlit Brabus logo that changes color in line with the ambient lighting rounds off the interior changes. The Brabus 700 can be ordered as a complete car with the modifications pre-installed. Alternatively, Brabus can convert any current Mercedes E63 in stages or as a complete transformation.
