Mercedes S63 AMG-Based Brabus 850 Causes Small Earthquake in Monaco

If you want to turn the obnoxiousness dial to eleven on your new Mercedes S63 AMG, you can take it to Brabus and have them make it much louder and more powerful than you really need.

The tuner offers the 850 pack which is called that based on the horsepower the car makes after the modifications.

The Brabus 850 is a very obnoxious car: it’s big and noticeably luxurious, like any S-Class, but it’s hugely fast, sprinting to 100 km/h or 62 mph in a bit over 4 seconds, and it’s extremely loud; too loud, even, for what it is. We wonder if an exhaust like that is really legal all around the world – it probably isn’t and is the kind of noise that sets off alarms as its passes by at full bore.

The noise it makes is obviously very pleasurable to the ear, but it sounds close to what a V8 racing car would sound like. That’s fine on a track but I don’t think pedestrians will go “hey, what a cool modified S-Class;” they’d probably be very cross if this V8 racket would ruin their quiet cup of coffee or leisurely stroll, which probably happened during the shooting of this video, as it’s set in Monaco where the sidewalks are packed.

    Jesus Christ. That’s loud enough to wake the dead.

  • Amazing machine, but…

    For the amount of money Brabus charge their customers, the very least they could do is get the letters in ‘BITURBO’ and the ‘850’ badge to line up properly.

    Don’t get me wrong, it sounds fantastic. But this is just not the car for those types of modifications.
