The venerable Benz tuner has announced its take on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet packing 641 horsepower, with 604 lb-ft of torque to go with it.

The result? 0-62 in 3.7 seconds and an Autobahn-crunching top speed of 200 miles per hour. Only instead of the big body of an S-Class and the weight of a big V12 in the nose, this one's based on the C-Class with a V8.

That headline figure is a handsome upgrade of 138 hp over the 502 horses and 516 torques with which the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 comes standard from the factory. Brabus achieved the increased output by fitting new turbochargers and recalibrating the electronics, but naturally it didn't ignore the rest of the car.
