Brabus is of course one of the biggest names in the business, and if you’re any sort of Mercedes-Benz fan, you know that that seeing that big ‘B’ logo means you’re dealing with a bunch of very fast, menacing-looking luxury cars. The very tip of the spear, if you will.
This bad boy of a midsize premium saloon is pushing down 800 PS (739 HP) as well as 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque, for an electronically limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph) and a 3-seconds flat 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time. To put it plainly, there aren’t many four door cars that can keep up with something like this, which is why it costs over €250,000 ($309,700).
Yet, if you’re wondering what on Earth could be better than this savage E63 S, the answer is that very same Brabus 800 kit, installed on the Mercedes-AMG S63 S. While you might think that this wouldn’t be as quick as the E63 S, and technically you’d be right, the difference is, simply put, insignificant.
The S-Class-based Brabus 800, with the same amount of power and torque as the E-Class we just talked about, will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds and max out at the same 300 km/h (186 mph) as its smaller sibling. So you basically get more car than you do in the E63 S, and with similar straight line performance. The only negative is the €359,000 ($444,000) price tag.
Last and most definitely not least is the Brabus 900, which is based on the updated Mercedes-Maybach S650. This full-size limo is powered by a modded twin-turbo V12, massaged to deliver no less than 900 PS (888 HP) – it’s enough to get it from a stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds, while the top speed is in excess of 349 km/h (217 mph).
All three models are also equipped with the tuner’s body kits and customized interior designs.
