Brabus has just revealed its first round of upgrades and modifications for the brand new Mercedes-AMG C63 S. The changes are both visual, aerodynamic and performance oriented in nature and really make the German super sedan even more incredible than standard.
For starters, Brabus has developed a PowerXtra B40 plug-and-play control module for the C63 S’s ECU. It updates the injection and ignition mapping while also increasing boost pressure. Power from the twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine therefore rises from 510 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque to 600 hp and 591 lb-ft between 1750 and 4500 rpm. Thanks to these improvements, the Brabus tuned Mercedes-AMG C63 S sprints to 100 km/h in a mere 3.8 seconds while top speed has been increased from the electronically limited 250 km/h to 300 km/h.
Alongside the engine mods, Brabus has developed a stainless steel exhaust system for the car which reduces backpressure and features electronically-controlled butterfly valves.
Aero-wise, the Brabus C63 S features a new front splitter, carbon side air intake surrounds, a rear diffuser and a rear lip spoiler. All of these components have been developed in a wind tunnel to reduce aerodynamic lift. They are available in a clear-coated carbon fibre finish or in matte carbon. A set of wheels that are 20×8.5 at the front and 20×9.5 at the rear are also available and can be completed with Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama tyres.
Inside, Brabus offers a fully tailored service for customers who can choose between a number of leather options as well as alcantara, wood and carbon fibre accents.
“New from BRABUS:
600 horsepower, 800 Nm and 300 km/h for the Mercedes C 63S
A rated power output of 441 kW / 600 HP (591 bhp). A peak torque of 800 Nm (590 lb-ft). A sprint time of 3.8 seconds from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph). A
top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). Plus exclusive sporty options from aerodynamic enhancement and wheels to the suspension and the interior: BRABUS
(Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) presents an extensive tuning
program for the new Mercedes C 63S in a world premiere at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt am Main.
Sedan or wagon: BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 600 engine tuning makes the new Mercedes C 63S even more a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The BRABUS engineers used
state-of-the-art test rig technology and extensive test drives on racetracks and public roads to develop a performance kit that boosts the power
output of the turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 by 66 kW / 90 HP (88 bhp).
BRABUS adapts a plug-and-play auxiliary control module to the electronic engine management system. It updates the engine controls with new mapping
for injection and ignition while increasing the boost pressure. As a result, rated power output jumps from standard 375 kW / 510 HP to 441 kW / 600
HP (503 to 591 bhp) at a low 5,800 rpm. At the same time, peak torque grows from 700 to 800 Nm (516 to 591 lb-ft), available on a plateau between
1,750 and 4,500 rpm. BRABUS recommends high-performance motor oil from technology partner MOTUL.
In concert with the seven-speed sports transmission, a C 63S sedan with BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 600 performance tuning launches from rest to 100 km/h
(62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. The slightly heavier wagon takes just a tenth of a second longer for the same exercise. The top speed of both body
styles jumps from 250 to 300 km/h (155 to 186 mph).
The strong suites of the BRABUS sport exhaust system for the Mercedes C 63S are its sound and its performance. The all-stainless exhaust reduces
backpressure and features controlled butterfly valves for an electronically controlled sound management. A switch in the cockpit lets drivers choose
between a subtle “coming home” mode and the open position of the butterfly valves for a markedly powerful exhaust note of the twin-turbo V8.
Reducing aerodynamic lift is of tremendous importance for a car as fast as this. For this reason, the BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to
develop equally efficient and visually stunning bodywork components manufactured from clear-coated carbon with a matte or shiny surface seal. The air
outlets in the front fenders add even more emphasis to the sporty-elegant appearance of the C 63S.
In addition, the production front bumper of the sedan and the wagon can be upgraded with a BRABUS spoiler lip. Carbon surrounds for the side air
intakes give the top-of-the-line C-Class model even more athletic looks.
A diffuser and a rear spoiler can make the rear of the sedan even more aerodynamically effective. Clear-coated carbon covers for the exterior mirrors
represent another sporty feature.
The new 20-inch king-sized BRABUS Monoblock T wheels play a crucial role in the car’s athletic appearance and further enhanced driving dynamics. The
five-spoke wheels with carbon inlays on each spoke are mounted on the top-of-the-line model of the current C-Class in size 8.5Jx20 on the front axle
and in size 9.5Jx20 at the rear. They are shod with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and up
to 275/30 ZR 20 on the rear axle.
Of course, exclusive interior refinement is also available for all Mercedes C 63 models. The product lineup ranges from stainless-steel scuff plates
with color-changing backlit BRABUS logo and ergonomic aluminum paddle shifters to a speedometer with 340-km/h scale (211 mph).
The company upholstery shop creates BRABUS fine leather luxury interiors tailored to individual customer preferences from a combination of especially
soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara. BRABUS offers wood and carbon trim sets in any desired color and with a variety of surface
finishes to complement the leather appointments.
The BRABUS fine leather interior of the show car at the IAA 2015 is made from all-black leather with mandarin-colored seams. Appropriately, all
chrome body parts are painted in the same black color as the vehicle.
All BRABUS components are backed by the one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000 miles (see BRABUS
Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013).
