W ith the new facelift version of the Mercedes S-Class, the sportiest variant of
the model series, the S 63 4MATIC, was also thoroughly revised. In a world premiere
at the IAA 2017, BRABUS presented an extensive refinement product range
tailor-made for the new model of the all-wheel-drive luxury sedan.
The switchover of the S 63 to the turbocharged V8 with a displacement of
3,982 cc (243 cu in) presented the power unit engineers of BRABUS with the task
of developing an efficient BRABUS 700 performance upgrade for the new engine.
They used extensive tests on state-of-the-art test benches and on the road to
develop new mapping for injection and ignition, and also reprogrammed the
electronic boost pressure control. They are introduced to the electronic engine
control system by a plug-and-play auxiliary control unit. After the installation, the
engine produces an extra 64.7 kW / 88 HP (87 bhp) and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) more
The power is transferred to all four wheels by a nine-speed automatic transmission,
which can also be shifted manually with the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle
shifters on the steering wheel, and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
With a power output of 515 kW / 700 HP (691 bhp) at a low 6,100 rpm and a
peak torque of 950 Nm (701 lb-ft) at a low 3,500 rpm, the four-door car sprints
from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.3 seconds. The top speed is 300 km/h
Like all other BRABUS components, this performance kit for the S 63 comes with
the exemplary three-year or 100,000-kilometer/62,000-mile* BRABUS Tuning
Warranty®. The hi-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain come from technology
Choosing a BRABUS sport exhaust system with electronic sound management
via actively controlled exhaust flaps is advisable as an ideal complement to the
engine tuning or as an attractive upgrade for a stock S 63. It allows regulating the
exhaust note from inside the cockpit. The ‘Coming Home’ mode is quieter than
the production exhaust. With exhaust flaps open, the eight-cylinder sounds even
sportier and more powerful than with the production exhaust system.
Of course, BRABUS lends also the facelift generation of the S 63 even sportier
looks. To this end, the BRABUS designers developed tailor-made naked carbon
