Brabus’ 700 Coupe Is A GLE 63 S AMG Waiting To Be Unleashed

Brabus has unveiled its new B63S 700 performance kit for the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe, just in time for the Dubai International Motor Show.

This time, the German tuning company showed a little restraint, boosting the SUV’s standard-rated, turbocharged, eight-cylinder, 585 PS (576 hp) stock engine to 700 HP (690 hp) – hence the “700 Coupe” name.

Granted, that’s a tremendous amount of raw power, especially as the torque was also increased to 960 Nm (708 lb-ft), but bear in mind that Brabus can push the AMG-branded GLE 63 S all the way to 850 PS (838 hp) and 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) of torque.

But even in this mildly tamed configuration, the automobile is no slouch, as it’s capable of launching itself from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.0 seconds, and go on accelerating until it reaches an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).

In order to achieve this level of performance, Brabus included two special turbochargers with larger compressor unit, an exhaust system featuring free-flow metal catalysts and down pipes with a diameter of 75 millimeters (3 in), new mapping for ignition and injection, and a stainless-steel sports exhaust system with actively controlled butterfly valve.

The visual package wasn’t left to its faith, as the German tuner extensively tweaked the SUV’s aerodynamic capabilities, further optimizing handling and stability. The front spoiler lip, for instance, may look like an ordinary visual upgrade, but it was actually developed to reduce lift on the front axle at high speeds. Moreover, a special BRABUS control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension lowers the ride height of the high-performance SUV by about 35 millimeters (1.4 in), reducing the automobile’s center of gravity for and additional handling enhancement.
