Brabus has announced that they will launch a 650 horsepower version of the Mercedes C 63 S at the Geneva Motor Show next month, the Brabus Mercedes C 63 S.
This highly tuned Brabus Mercedes C 63 S comes with more than 138 horsepower than the standard model and this will give it a top speed of 200 miles per hour and a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of just 3.8 seconds.
One of the key features of the engine tuning for a turbocharged engine such as the 4.0-liter (244 cu in) eight-cylinder in the C-Class is more boost pressure. The BRABUS power unit engineers therefore developed special turbochargers with larger compressor unit and a special core assembly with reinforced axial bearings.
A BRABUS control unit with new datasets governs the electronic boost pressure control as well as injection and ignition, which is also a crucial factor in the performance upgrade. With PowerXtra B40S – 650 tuning, the rated output increases from standard 375 kW / 510 HP (503 bhp) to 478 kW / 650 HP (641 bhp) at a low 5,800 rpm. Simultaneously, peak torque grows from 700 to 820 Nm (516 to 604 lb-ft), available constantly on a plateau between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm.
We will have more details about the new Brabus Mercedes C 63 S when it appears at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
