For those who think the 510PS (503hp) Mercedes-AMG C63 S is too low on power, Brabus has the solution. It’s called the PowerXtra B40 – 600 power kit and lifts the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine’s output by 90PS (88hp) to 600PS (591hp) at 5,800 rpm.
Furthermore, peak torque increases by 100Nm to 800Nm (590lb-ft) of torque, available between 1,750 rpm and 4,500 rpm. This results in a sprint time of 3.8 seconds (sedan) from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
Scheduled to debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show later this month, the Brabus PowerXtra B40 – 600 engine tuning kit is available for both the sedan and wagon body styles of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S. The extra power is unleashed via new mapping for injection and ignition as well as an increase in boost pressure.
Alongside the performance kit, Brabus offers an aero package developed in the wind tunnel which reduces aerodynamic lift. The components are manufactured from clear-coated carbon with a matte or shiny surface seal. The production front bumper of the sedan and the wagon can be upgraded with a Brabus spoiler lip, while carbon surrounds for the side air intakes give the C63 S a more athletic look.
At the rear, a diffuser and a rear spoiler improve both the appearance and the aerodynamic efficiency, with clear-coated carbon covers for the exterior mirrors also offered.
The Brabus C63 S rides on new 20-inch king-sized Brabus Monoblock T five-spoke wheels with carbon inlays on each spoke. The wheels are shod with Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and up to 275/30 ZR 20 on the rear axle.
Brabus also offers a choice of interior refinements ranging from stainless-steel scuff plates with color-changing backlit Brabus logo, fine Mastik leather and Alcantara tailored to customer preferences, wood and carbon trim sets in any desired color to a variety of surface finishes. Aluminum paddle shifters and a speedometer with 340 km/h scale (211 mph) are also offered.
The show car that will be on display in Frankfurt features a fine leather interior made from all-black leather with mandarin-colored seams. All chrome body parts are painted in the same black color as the vehicle.
