Brabus to Display 850-HP Mercedes S63 AMG in Geneva

At the 2015 Geneva show, Brabus will show off what it says is the world's fastest and most powerful all-wheel-drive coupe. With 850 hp and 1069 lb-ft of torque, the new Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe will have a top speed of 217 mph and go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds.

Research

Based off the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, the twin-turbo V-8 has been significantly tweaked by Brabus, with the installation of a special Brabus crankshaft, enlarged cylinder bore, and larger forged pistons. The cylinder heads have also been optimized for better performance. The Brabus turbochargers are outfitted with larger compressor units and modified exhaust manifolds, while special metal catalysts and a stainless-steel sports exhaust system have also been installed for more performance enhancements.

While equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission, the S63 can also be shifted manually with the Brabus Race aluminum paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. A rear-wheel-drive variant is available, but the model comes standard with the 4Matic all-wheel drive system. In order to utilize all the available power of the Brabus S63 Coupe, the new model has been outfitted with Brabus Monoblock "Platinum Edition" 21-inch forged wheels.

Inside, the new model offers a Mastik leather interior with copper-colored contrast seams and piping, while the headliner features deep black Alcantara. Brabus paid careful attention to the different accents surrounding the interior, and coated 219 individual parts in the same Shadow Gold tone shown on the Brabus Monoblock F wheels.
