The Brabus 650 Convertible is on display at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. Based upon the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Convertible, the Brabus equivilent is a blacked-out thug of a machine. We took a closer look at the show car on display at the Geneva show.
Underneath the bodywork is the 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8. Its power boost means it produces 650 hp (an additional 140 hp) with 820 Nm of torque, enough for a 320 km/h top speed and a zero to 100 km/h time of just 3.7 seconds.
The power is released through a set of custom turbochargers with larger compressor units, a new core and reinforced axial bearings. A plug and play module is attached to the electronic engine control unit which uses a special mapping for the electronic boost pressure limiter, injection and ignition.
Aerodynamic parts are finished in naked carbon with either a matte or a high-gloss surface finish. They include a new front spoiler, carbon surrounds for the side air intakes in the front bumper, carbon attachments on both front fenders, rocker panels and air deflector panels in both front of the rear wheel arches.
