Brabus Works its Magic on the New S-Class, Gives it Up to 720 HP and 1,065 Nm (785 lb-ft)

It’s time for Brabus to get their hands on the freshly launched all-new Mercedes S-Class and develope a range of performance and styling upgrades for those who want more of their luxury sedan.

The first step consists of a performance kit for the V8 Biturbo models that deliver up to 720 hp (730 PS) and 1,065 Nm (785 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the modified S-Class to reach a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).

The styling package includes and aero kit, tailor-made wheels with diameters up to 21 inches and exclusive options for the interior.

For the S 500, the modifications done to the engine include a special mapping for injection and ignition and a moderately increased boost pressure, squeezing 65 more horsepower from the 4.7-liter V8 Biturbo engine. Consequently, power output jumps from 449 hp (455 PS) to 512 hp (520 PS), while peak torque rises to 820 Nm (604 lb-ft). The upgraded S 500 sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds, while top speed can be limited to 250, 275 or 300 km/h (155, 168 or 186 mph, respectively).

For the S 63 AMG, Brabus offers performance kits that lift output by up to 143 hp (145 PS). Peak torque also jumps from 700 to 1,000 Nm (516 to 737 lb-ft), available between 2,250 and 3,750 rpm.

The top performance kit is the Brabus B63S that lifts power to 720 hp (730 PS) at 5,300 rpm by replacing the two production turbochargers with two special Brabus turbos with larger compressor unit and a higher boost pressure. Peak torque is electronically limited to 1,065 Nm (785 lb-ft) and available between 1,750 and 5,000 rpm.

Brabus also offers a sport exhaust system that changes engine noise according to the driver’s preference. To improve handling, the tuner lowers the ride height of models fitted with Airmatic or Active Body Control suspension by about 15 mm (0.6 in).

On the inside, the aftermaket specialist offers from scuff plates with its logo to leather interiors made from Brabus Mastik leather and Alcantara. There’s also the option of a Brabus multimedia system.
