If the car pictured looks familiar, that’s probably because you saw a strikingly-similar Brabus-tuned E63 S in September. However, unlike that creation which delivered 690 hp, this variant packs 789 hp beneath its skin.
To increase grunt by 186 hp over stock, Brabus fitted a pair of new turbochargers and tweaked the vehicle’s computers. Alongside the mighty horsepower figure, torque has also been increased by a considerable 74 lb-ft to a mind-blowing 737 lb-ft at just 3600 rpm.
Thanks to these considerable increases in horsepower and torque, the Brabus E63 S reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in exactly three seconds. Opt for the E63 S Estate and its 0-62 mph time sits at 3.1 seconds. Top speeds for both body styles sit at an electronically limited 186 hp (300 km/h) but Brabus is currently working on a tweak to bypass the limiter.
Not satisfied with simply making the E63 S faster and more powerful than standard, Brabus has also designed a number of styling and aerodynamic modifications for the super sedan and estate. Most notably, there is a selection of carbon fiber parts offered in a matte or high-gloss finish. Elsewhere, Brabus offers new alloy wheels for the car that are up to 21-inch in size.
If the customer so chooses, a stainless steel exhaust system can also be fitted as can a range of customization options for the cabin.
