Brabus Mercedes-AMG GT broke cover just days before its official debut. The Brabus PowerXtra B40 – 600 performance kit for the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engined GT S takes the power all the way up to 600 HP.

The power upgrade pays off in therms of performance as well, just as expected. The Brabus Mercedes-AMG GT S is accelerating 0.2 faster, reaching 100 km/h from standstill in 3.6 seconds, while top speed has also increased to 325 km/h.

To reach these new heights, Brabus relied on increased boost pressure alongside new mapping for injection and ignition. Besides the 90 PS boost, the altered specifications translate to an additional 100 Nm of torque – the peak value is 750 Nm now.

The Brabus Mercedes-AMG GT S is easy to spot on the street thanks to its extensive styling modifications list which includes 20 inch light Monoblock F forged wheels (21 inches at the rear) plus a fully fledged carbon aero kit. This translates to full extensions for the bumpers and spoilers, newly-shaped air outlets for the front fenders and a rear diffuser with tailor-made cutouts for the four exhaust pipes.

Of course, power and styling upgrades are not the only goodies made available for the Mercedes-AMG GT by Brabus. The PowerXtra B40 – 600 kit brings a sports quad exhaust cast in lightweight titanium and configurable engine sound courtesy of electronically controlled butterfly valves operated from the cockpit. Also included is a 15 mm lowered sports suspension complete with distinct settings for its damping rates.
