Lightbulb Brabus tunes Mercedes E63 to 850 horsepower

Filed under: Aftermarket, Sedan, Performance, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury

If you're in the market for a super-sedan, you could do a lot worse than a Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG - one of the most capable four-doors on the market. But if even that's not enough for you, there are always tuners eager to squeeze out more. And when it comes to Mercedes, few can come close to Brabus.

The German tuner made a name for itself swapping a 6.9-liter V12 into the E-Class to give it, in its last iteration, as much as 800 horsepower, propelling the rocket sled up to 230 miles per hour. But these days everyone is downsizing their engines, and that includes Brabus - at least, that is, in relative terms.

Its latest modification to the E63 ditches the heavy twelve in favor of a V8, albeit bored out to 6.0 liters, twin-turbocharged and cranked up to a massive 850 horsepower and just as much torque. The resulting Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo is said to be capable of rocketing to 62 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds, but opt for the 4Matic all-wheel-drive version and you're looking at a 0-62 time of just 3.1 seconds, with a top speed as high as 217 mph.

Of course if all that sounds like too much, Brabus will gladly modify your E63 to 611, 650 or 720 horsepower, and in the process fit it with updated aero, rolling stock and a retrimmed interior according to the buyer's specifications. Scope out the ne plus ultra super-sedan in the extensive high-res image gallery above and the details in the press release below.Continue reading Brabus tunes Mercedes E63 to 850 horsepower
