The Bottrop tuner is well known for making over the top Mercedes-Benz models, but it certainly out did itself with the B63S rework of the already astonishing Mercedes G63 AMG 6×6.
While you would certainly recognize if you saw the “usual” version, Brabus went over the edge here and added some new amenities, like a front spoiler, a carbon fiber hood scoop and carbon fiber wheel arches, tinted xenon headlights, LED DLR’s and more underbody protection. The interior changes have been more restrained, but the model now has an updated premium leather upholstery, Alcantara, illuminated sill plates and new aluminum pedals. The original model on which both the G63 AMG 6×6 and the B63S is based is an Australian army-developed G 200 CDI with bigger dimensions: it’s 5867 mm long (up 1105 mm), 2111 mm (up 226 mm) wide and 2209mm (up 272 mm) tall.
The real deal is – as always – under the hood, where Brabus added a 700 performance kit, which –you guessed – takes the total power of the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 mill to 700 hp and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of torque – an increase of no less than 156 hp (115 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft). This setup allows for a top speed of 160 km/h (100 mph – electronically-limited) and sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.4 seconds.
