Brabus is known the world round for its outrageous builds, the German tuning shop has been putting its magic touch on Mercedes-Benz vehicles since 1977. But today at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Brabus is bringing out the big guns in the form of the E63 S 700.
It may not look like much at first glance, but the subtle E63 S 700 is one of the most powerful Mercedes vehicles the firm has ever built. It features an impressive 700 horsepower (515 kilowatts) and 710 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque, 88 more horsepower (65 kW) than the standard model.

All that power is routed through a nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4Matic four-wheel-drive system, allowing the super sedan to sprint to 62 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 3.2 seconds (3.3 seconds as a wagon). The E63 even comes from the factory with a "Coming Home" mode, which uses electronically controlled flaps to control sound from the exhaust system – you’ll definitely need it with this upgrade.
The exterior, though subtle, gives the E63 a more aggressive look. An aerodynamic Brabus body kit has been added, made entirely from high-strength carbon fiber, with a choice of high-gloss matte protective coating. The front spoiler lip, front bumper with larger intakes, and rear spoiler and diffuser were all optimized in a wind tunnel. Tailor-made 21-inch wheels finish off the package.
Brabus says that tuning options are "virtually endless," and that the pacakge will be available in a range of unique colors, both inside and out. This particular example on display in Frankfurt is finished in a sinister black exterior scheme with a two-tone, black and red leather interior. The Brabus E63 S 700 can be ordered as a complete car, or the package can be added on to your current E63.
