If Satan were to drive a cabrio, this would probably be it.

Debuting today at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, the Brabus-tuned Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio is now the world’s most powerful and quickest four-seater convertible. Developed in collaboration with Motul, the menacing open-top S63 adopts a sinister all-black look and comes with an enlarged V8 engine with a 5.9-liter displacement. That’s up from the standard 5.5 liters.

The two turbochargers have been replaced with Brabus’ own and these feature bigger compressor units and bespoke exhaust manifolds. In addition, new 75-mm down pipes and reworked metal catalysts are part of the package, as is the stainless steel exhaust system.

With all the tweaks implemented, the S63 Cabrio’s bigger engine will churn a massive 838 horsepower (625 kilowatts) and a tire-shredding 1,069 pound-feet (1,450 newton-meters) of torque. To preserve the engine’s longevity, Brabus is installing a software which limits torque to a still earth-moving 848 lb-ft (1,150 Nm). All that power is delivered to an all-wheel-drive 4MATIC system through a seven-speed automatic gearbox featuring a manual shift mode via the steering wheel-mounted aluminum paddle shifters.

Let’s talk performance. The sprint from a standstill to 62 miles (100 kilometers) per hour is going to take only three and a half seconds (down by 0.4s) while the 0-124 mph (0-200 kph) task is done in just 9.4 seconds. With enough clear road up ahead, the tuned S63 Cabrio by Brabus will max out at 217 mph (350 kph) which is actually electronically-capped because of tire limitations.

To complete the tuning package, the high-performance four-seater convertible has received a beefier body, 21-inch forged wheels, -15mm suspension lowering module, and a bunch of cabin tweaks.
