The super sedan can sprint to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds.
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.
