Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Falls To The Dark Side, Emerges The Brabus 600

The Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S has been subjected to the Brabus treatment and became a menacing-looking premium compact SUV with even more power.

By adding their plug-and-play control module with new mapping for injection and ignition, the tuner was able to raise the output of the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 to 600PS (591hp / 441kW) and 800Nm (590lb-ft) of torque from the stock model’s 510PS (503hp / 375kW) and 700Nm (516lb-ft).

With the extra muscle, the GLC 63 S goes from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 3.6 seconds, or 0.2 seconds quicker than the stock model. The latter maxes out at 250km/h (155mph), but the Brabus 600 goes all the way up to 300km/h (186mph).

Providing it with a deeper tone is a stainless steel exhaust system with quad exhaust tips made from titanium and carbon fiber that features a ‘Coming Home’ mode accessible from the cabin,, which reduces noise so you won’t disturb the neighbors.

The sporty looks of the Brabus 600 have an aerodynamic function, too. The tuner’s designers developed the new bodywork components from carbon fiber, and the vehicle’s stance has been enhanced by a set of 21-inch rims, wrapped in 265/40 and 295/35 tires, front and rear, respectively.

Other rims are available as well, from 19 to 22 inches in size, along with the air suspension that lowers the ride height by approximately 30mm (1.2in).

A selection of leather, Alcantara, wood and carbon fiber trim, in different colors, transform the cabin, and Brabus can also throw in aluminum door-lock pins and pedals, stainless steel scuff plates with an illuminated logo and ambiance lighting.

Depending on how big your budget is, the tuner can offer you either the complete ride, or will upgrade your own AMG GLC 63 S to this specification, regardless if it’s the SUV or the Coupe model.

    Isn’t the GLC 63 S the coupe?

      That only seems to apply to the US market. Elsewhere seems to have the option of 63 or 63 S for both the Coupe and traditional GLC.

          Very, but what it doesn’t surprise me one bit.

    Brabus is so cheesy. Why would anyone want that awful “B” instead of a Mercedes star on the grille?

    • Hoe

      This is exactly what I always thought of Brabus tunning: that “B” looks so wrong.
      Generaly speaking, their aero packs are horrible
