The Teutonic technicians at Brabus have put their hands on the latest Mercedes-AMG C63S , and the results are just as you would expect: more power, more carbon fiber, and, well, more of the fanatical attention to detail that the brand built its reputation on.
Known collectively as the “PowerXtra B40S – 650 tuning,” the Brabus car makes a total of 650 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque, increases of 134 and 80. Shifting duties are carried out by the standard seven-speed automatic transmission, which can be controlled via a set of bespoke Brabus Race aluminum paddles.
Occupants will be held in place by special anti-slip synthetic leather that has been applied to the contact surfaces of the sport seats, parts of the steering-wheel rim, the dashboard, and the door panels. Decorative bright-yellow leather elements add some highlights to the cabin’s black-leather theme, and high-gloss carbon bits adorn the instrument panel, center console, and door panels, while aluminum pedals and door-lock pins add a touch of a hardcore-industrial vibe.
The Monoblock T wheels feature five spokes with carbon inlays, while the Monoblock F represents an evolution of the cross-spoke design. Mounted in a staggered pattern, 9.5-inch-wide rear wheels have 275/30 rubber, and 8.5-inch-wide front wheels wear 255/30 tires. Suspension mods were undertaken with Bilstein, which helped Brabus come up with a set of height-adjustable coil-overs with ten rebound and compression-rate settings.
