All Mercedes-AMG models sound absolutely beastly. When tuned by Brabus however and in S-Class 850 specification, the car truly sounds like the norse god of thunder, Thor.
The following clip was filmed in the heart of Monte Carlo during Top Marques Monaco 2015 and perfectly showcases the Brabus 850 on the move for the very first time. It also provides us with an opportunity to hear the roaring engine at full throttle!
As a reminder, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is based upon the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC. It benefits from a range of mechanical upgrades which together, release 850 hp from 5400 rpm and 1,450 Nm of torque between 2500 and 4500 rpm (electronically limited to 1150 Nm) from the V8 engine. The increased power allows for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 3.5 seconds and a 350-km/h top speed.
Brabus have really gone to town on the engine by increasing the displacement from 5.5 litres to 6.0 litres and adding a variety of new, high-performance components. Brabus adds some flair to the package with a new exhaust system and Gold Heat Reflection sheathing for the intake and charge air pipes.
