The German aftermarket specialist has revealed its plans to put into production a tuning program tailored for the Mercedes-AMG C63 S, with the finished product on display during the Geneva Motor Show.
In Brabus’ usual style, what we have here is a “full-blooded wolf in sheep’s clothing,” with the design carefully modified to be as inconspicuous as possible (in the line of thinking of a tuner, that is) – we’re treated to a carbon fiber body kit that packs a front spoiler, an aggressive diffuser, and a trunk-mounted spoiler. Even more carbon is present: carbon fiber front fender vents, carbon fiber mirror caps, and carbon fiber air intake surrounds. There’s also a stainless steel sports exhaust system, a height-adjustable coilover suspension, and also 20-inch alloy wheels that can be wrapped in Continental, Pirelli, or Yokohama rubber.
There’s also a bespoke cabin treatment, where the Brabus specialists have outfitted the Mercedes-AMG C63 S with premium leather and Alcantara upholstery with contrasting yellow accents. The owner is also granted alloy pedals, illuminated door sill plates, special floor mats, and aluminum paddle shifters. Motivation is a must have when talking about Brabus’ handiwork, so he biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine has been massaged with new turbochargers and a modified ECU. The engine now has no less than 641 hp and 604 pound-feet of torque to show for. That’s a full upgrade of 138 hp and 88 lb-ft, allowing the C63 S to sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h).
