700 HP FOR SIX WHEELS

| 11/09/2013 | 0 Comments

The Brabus B63S – 700 6×6 a particularly exclusive power off-roader based on the new Mercedes G 63 AMG 6×6 celebrated its world premiere at the 2013 IAA in Frankfurt.

Brabus_6x6_1Brabus lends the most exclusive G-Class of all times even more punch: powered by a 5.5-liter V8 Biturbo with B63S – 700 engine tuning producing 515 kW / 700 hp, the six-wheel drive powerhouse weighing in at around four tons sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.4 seconds. The top speed is limited electronically to 160 km/h (100 mph) due to the 37-inch off-road tires. The tuned engine also delivers a much heftier torque: between 2,000 rpm and 4,500 rpm the engine sends a massive 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of torque instead of the standard 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

Brabus_6x6_2The Mercedes G 63 AMG 6×6 built in small-series production comes normally with a 5.5-liter eight-cylinder four-valve Biturbo engine producing 400 kW / 544 hp. The performance kit, which is also available for all other current Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG SUVs, unleashes the inherent power slumbering in the turbocharged V8 engine. To realize the enormous power increase by 115 kW / 156 hp the peripherals of the V8 are modified extensively.

Brabus_6x6_4The production turbochargers are replaced by two special turbochargers with larger compressor unit, which produce a higher boost pressure. The Gold Heat Reflection sheathing for the intake and charge-air pipes further lower the charge-air temperature. In addition, special high-performance metal catalysts with 75-mm (2.9 in) downpipes are installed to lower the back pressure. The stainless-steel sport exhaust system with controlled butterfly valve was custom-developed for the G 63 6×6 AMG and offers both optimized power yield and active control of the exhaust note. Drivers can select at the push of a button between the subtle “Coming Home” mode and a markedly potent exhaust note in the “Sport ” position.

Brabus_6x6_3Specially calibrated Brabus mapping for the engine management system coordinates the perfect interaction of all high-performance components while also ensuring compliance with the stringent EURO V emission standards. The Brabus offered Tuning Warranty of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000 miles is unparalleled in the industry.

Brabus_6x6_5Brabus also gives the 6×6 a strategic visual upgrade. The front spoiler edges attach to the production fascia and are combined with an additional molding below the special radiator grille with integrated Brabus logo. The carbon-fiber hood scoop adds another striking highlight. The innovative lighting concept sets further visual signals. It includes dark-tinted LED lights integrated into the front spoiler edges. Even more dominant are the black xenon headlights and daytime running lights with integrated turn-signal function for all current models of the venerable off-roader. The now obsolete production turn signals on top of the fenders are replaced with clear-coated matt carbon-fiber covers.

Brabus_6x6_6As a contrast to the striking black, chrome and carbon-fiber exterior, designers picked a fiery red Mastik leather/Alcantara interior. The passengers are welcomed by stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo. Interior designers add some pronounced accents with aluminum components such as pedals and door-lock pins.
