Brabus takes on the legacy even though its co-founder, Bodo Buschmann, who passed away in April. Its latest project on the Mercedes-AMG E63 S comes to prove it.
The standard Mercedes-AMG E 63 S is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine that develops 612 horsepower and 850 Newton meters of torque. It runs from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3,36 seconds and does the one-quarter of a mile in 11.46 seconds.
But the owner of this super powerful sedan thought he needs a bit more power and a bit more torque, so he took it straight to those who are best at satisfying such needs and requirements, Brabus, the tuning company that has just celebrated its 40-year anniversary.
The company started with the engine bay, where the engineers installed a pair of brand-new turbochargers. Accompanied by various mechanical upgrades, the sedan can now boast 789 horsepower and 1,000 Newton meters of torque.
Brabus also granted it with a look to match such power. So the car was entirely wrapped in a matte green vinyl form Fostla, that also equipped it with glossy black wheels with contrasting bright orange accents and orange brake calipers.
A carbon fiber front splitter, a sports exhaust with black ceramic-coated tailpipes and a new diffuser were also mounted on the car.
