Cool car but the fuel mileage claims are BS, or well if you drive like Brian does maybe. Brabus is just acting Italian now and lying about their MPG.

Their is a Youtube video online of a CL63 AMG with some Brabus mods doing pulls on the Autobahn and you can actually watch the fuel gauge drop in the 7 minutes it lasts.

I'm guessing real world if you drive normally 12 maybe, if you hot rod it single digits.

But really who cares anyway.

Brabus is a European company, I'd bet an E63 the figures are in imperial gallons.

So that's 11.5mpg city 24 mpg highway.

A US Spec E63 on fuel economy.gov is rated at... 16/24. A lot of people manage to beat the EPA by a bit, and it is turbo charged, so staying out of the boost, I wouldn't say 24mpg is flagrant lie. The big fuel enrichment comes at big boost, I'm sure it gets single digits in the boost, but so do a lot of cars.

Compare Side-by-Side
