The C63 S is going to be launched tomorrow in our country and those who are not entirely satisfied with the standard power figures should know that Brabus has fiddled with the twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter engine. While the stock car pumps out an already generous 503 bhp and 700 Nm of torque, this version tweaked by Brabus churns a massive 600 bhp at 5,800 rpm and 800 Nm in the 1,750 - 4,500 rpm range.
Suffice it to say, the extra oomph makes the Mercedes-AMG C63 S even quicker as the 0-100 kmph task is now accomplished in as little as 3.8 seconds, so it’s now 0.2s faster than before. Brabus also removed the 250 kmph electronic top speed limiter to enable the unrestricted version hit a very impressive 300 kmph.
The list of upgrades doesn’t end with the power upgrade as the aftermarket specialists also installed their own exhaust system made entirely from stainless steel and equipped with a controlled butterfly valve which alters the exhaust’s soundtrack at the press of a switch installed within the cabin. As you can see, the C63 S also hosts a new body kit which was fine-tuned in the wind tunnel to make sure it’s aerodynamically efficient.
Brabus removed the stock wheels of the hot sedan to make room for their own set of Monoblock T 20-inch rims wrapped around in 255/30 ZR20 tires at the front and 275/35 ZR20 rubbers in the back from manufacturers such as Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental.
A tuning program would not be complete without some customizations inside the cabin and this particular C63 S comes with stainless steel scuff plates with a Brabus illuminated logo, along with aluminum paddle shifters, black leather with mandarin seams, as well as a new speedometer which ends at 340 kmph.
All of these upgrades developed by the German tuner can also be applied on the wagon version of the C63 S, but due to the model’s slightly higher weight, the 0-100 kmph will take an extra 0.1 seconds.
