The wolf in sheep’s clothing – This is the new Brabus 900
Why would you buy the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, for example, when you have the Brabus 900? The Mercedes-AMG E 63 has just received 900 horsepower. The tuning house calls it “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”. And we can definitely understand why.
It all comes from the old 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that now features 4.5 liters, due to the eight-cylinder block being bored out to 84 millimeters (3.3 inches). Brabus engineers came up with larger pistons and eight connecting rods as they extended the stroke length to 100 millimeters (3.3 in). They also put in new turbochargers and a new stainless steel exhaust system. So how fast did they really do it?
The Brabus 900: as fast as a supercar
That’s how Brabus brought the power up to 900 hp (888 horsepower) and 1,250 Newton-meters (922 pound-feet) of torque. The tuning house decided to electronically limit the torque to 1,050 (774 lb-ft). It is just a protection measure for transmission. And in case you forgot, the original Mercedes-AMG E 63 offers 612 hp and 850 Nm of torque. Compared to what the Brabus 900 offers right now, that’s nothing to write home about, isn’t it?
And now let’s go to what matters for those who would be in a hurry. The business sedan reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds. That’s a pretty quick way to get to a business meeting on time. It takes 9.7 seconds to reach 200 km/h (124 mph) and from 23.9 to 300 km/h (186 mph).
There are Monoblock Z Platinum Edition forged wheels of 265/30 ZR21 at the front axle and 305/25 ZZR22 at the rear, with Continental tires.
Brabus brought the E 63 closer to the runway by approximately 20 millimeters. As if that wasn’t enough, to give it a more aggressive stance, Brabus made the car completely black and put a lot of carbon fiber on it. As for the interior, the Germans leave it to the customers and promise many customization options.
