If you ever woke up in the middle of the night thinking Mercedes-AMG C 63 S’ power reserves simply fail to impress, Brabus unleashed a mad upgrade package. Called the PowerXtra B40 – 600 this kit basically ups the output of the Brabus Mercedes-AMG C 63 S’ twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to 600 PS, some 90 PS more than in standard AMG S guise.
Torque also lifts from the already mighty 700 Nm to no less than 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) spread between 1.750 and 4.500 rpm. Acceleration-wise, the Brabus tuned Mercedes-AMG C 63 is understandably faster reaching from nod to 100 km/h in 3,8 seconds sharp. Top speed is not limited so the Affalterbach ‘express’ can pedal all the way up to 300 km/h.
Brabus plans to offer the PowerXtra B40 – 600 engine kit for all C 63 variants, including the T-Modell wagon. According to the press release, the secret behind the power surge is good old re-mapping for injection and ignition systems coupled with the ubiquitous boost pressure upgrade.
Of course, Brabus doesn’t limit its reinterpretation of AMG’s mightiest works to plain engine remapping. The tuning specialist is also altering the aerodynamics of the car courtesy of an all-new aero kit featuring apron extensions and rear wing carved from clear coated carbon meant to reduce lift and take the looks of the crazy sedan one notch higher in therms of aggressiveness.
The classic Brabus image couldn’t be complete without a set of oversized wheels, 20-inch Monoblock T five-spoke alloys shod with massive 255/30 ZR20 and 275/30 ZR20 tires of Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama flavor.
The interior is also adorned with unique Brabus touches like the combination of black leather and Alcantara, stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo and the orange accents gracing the edges of the seats and the steering wheel.
