Brabus has launched a complete tuning package for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63. Aptly named the Brabus 800, it comprises of a boost in power and visual enhancements inside and out, including new wheels.
By replacing the turbochargers, re-mapping the ECU, tweaking the air intake and adding a high-performance exhaust system with an available quiet mode so as not to wake up the entire neighborhood, the tuner has squeezed out an extra 188 PS (185 HP / 138 kW) and 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) of torque.
As a result, the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 now pumps out 800 PS (789 HP / 588 kW) at 6,600 rpm and 1,000 Nm (738 lb-ft) at 3,600 rpm. The engine is hooked up to a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic+ all-wheel drive, rocketing the super sedan from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 3.0 seconds and the estate in 3.1 seconds, or almost half a second quicker than stock. Top speed is electronically limited to 300 km/h (186 mph) in both body styles, up from 250 km/h (155 mph).
The tuned AMG E63 also features a front apron, trunk lid spoiler for the four-door model and carbon fiber diffuser insert. Different wheels are available from Brabus, up to 21 inches in diameter. The pictured car rides on the 9×21-inch front and 10.5×21-inch rear ‘Platinum Edition Z’ forged rims with a special finish, wrapped in 255/30 and 295/25 tires respectively. Contributing to its stanced looks is the optimized air suspension that lowers the ride height by 10 or 20 mm (0.4-0.8 in) depending on the selected driving mode.
Stainless steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo that changes color in tone with the ambient lighting greet users upon opening the door. Other interior enhancements include the aluminum door pins and pedals. Brabus has a very generous selection of fine leather and Alcantara upholstery available, as well as precious wood and genuine carbon accents in store too.
The Brabus 800 Sedan or Estate can be ordered a complete car, but Brabus can also fully or partially convert the customers’ rides to this specification.
