Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo tune announced for Mercedes S 63 AMG

Brabus, perhaps the king of Mercedes-Benz AMG tuning, has unveiling its latest brute package designed for the new S 63 AMG Coupe. It’s called the 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe.

Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Mercedes S 63 AMG

As you might have guessed, this sleek coupe packs an 850hp engine tune. It comprises of a 5.9-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 625kW of power at 5400rpm, and 1450Nm of tree-stump-ripping torque available between 2500 and 4500rpm.

The engine is based on the stock 5.5-litre unit only Brabus has expanded the capacity via enlarging the bore and stroke. The tuning firm also fitted bigger turbochargers, custom manifolds, and a retuned engine computer. There’s so much grunt in fact Brabus has limited torque to 1150Nm to save the drivetrain.

From the engine, power is sent through a seven-speed automatic transmission and into a 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. This results in 0-100km/h coming up in just 3.5 seconds, with a limited top speed of 350km/h.

To help the rest of the coupe cope with all of this performance, Brabus created a bespoke aerodynamics package which was developed in a wind tunnel. At the front you’ll notice a unique carbon fibre bumper bar and spoiler, with large air intakes, while at the back is a Brabus carbon fibre diffuser featuring cutouts for the Brabus exhaust system.

Other highlights for the 850 6.0 Biturbo package include Monoblock R forged alloy wheels available in sizes from 18 to 22 inches, lowered sports suspension (15mm lower), as well as a special interior package with carbon fibre trimmings, gold highlights, a 400km/h speedo, Brabus paddle shifters for the driver, and alloy pedals.

You’d have to agree this is one of the sleekest and meanest luxury coupes around. We love the black exterior with the matching front grille, contrasted by gold wheels.
