2010 Brabus B63 S - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Don't have enough money for Brabus to swap out the V8 in your E63 AMG for a V12? Not to worry. Today at the Essen Motor Show, the German tuner officially launched its B63 S performance package for 6.2-liter V8 in the four-door Benz. The upgrade consists of dual "sport" air filters, high-flow catalytic converters, and revised program for the engine and results in a 30 horsepower increase.

Brabus is also offering other modifications for the E63 AMG as well, including a carbon fiber aero kit, wheels in 18 to 20-inch sizes, and various interior trim pieces like stainless-steel scuff plates, a new 225 mph speedometer, and wood or carbon fiber inlays. For the most part ,we'd skip the visual bits and stick with the engine upgrades. Hit the jump for full details in press release, or check out the high-res gallery below courtesy of Brabus.

PRESS RELEASE:


Even more power and exclusive accessories for the latest top-of-the-line E-Class model, the E 63 AMG: With BRABUS B63 S engine tuning, power output of both sedan and wagon jumps to 555 hp (547 bhp) / 408 kW and their top speed jumps to 320 km/h (200 mph). BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) also offers exclusive accessories such as sporty yet elegant aerodynamic-enhancement components, custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations up to 20 inches in diameter and custom interior options.

The fast-revving 6.3-liter V8 becomes even more powerful with the BRABUS B63 S performance kit. The conversion consists of two sport air filters, free-flow metal catalysts and newly programmed engine electronics. The tuning kit bumps power output of the engine from standard 525 hp (517 bhp) / 386 kW by 30 hp (30 bhp) / 22 kW. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 630 to 650 Nm (464 to 479 lb-ft) at 5,400 rpm. BRABUS recommends fully synthetic ARAL high-performance motor oil.

Equipped with the BRABUS B63 S kit, the sprint time from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened to 4.3 seconds and in combination with the BRABUS V/max unit top speed jumps to up to 320 km/h (200 mph), depending on the speed rating of the selected tire/wheel combination.

To transfer the increased power to the road with as little slip as possible BRABUS offers a limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 percent for the E 63 AMG.

Minimizing aerodynamic lift is essential in a car as fast as this one. The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop aerodynamic-enhancement components that are as stunning as they are effective. These components are manufactured from clear-coated carbon fiber. The production front apron of sedan and wagon can be upgraded with a spoiler lip. The aerodynamics of the sedan's rear can be further improved with a diffuser and a rear spoiler.

On the front axle BRABUS aluminum sport fenders with lateral air outlets improve venting of the wheel houses and add a decidedly sporty note to the car's appearance.

BRABUS also offers custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations for all E63 models. They are available with diameters of 18, 19 and 20 inches. The largest homologated version features Monoblock VI, E, Q or S wheels in size 9Jx20 on the front axle and in sizes 9.5Jx20 or 10.5Jx20 in back. They are fitted with Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires in size 245/30 ZR 20 in front and up to size 295/25 ZR 20 on the rear axle.

Exclusive BRABUS-refined interiors are also available for the Mercedes E 63 AMG. The list of accessories ranges from stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo to a speedometer with 360-km/h (225-mph) dial. The company upholstery shop creates luxury interiors from a combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara to each customer's exact specifications. The perfect complements are precious-wood and carbon-fiber inlays in any desired color and with various surface finishes.

All components are backed by the incomparable BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers / 62,000 miles (see BRABUS warranty conditions as of November 2006).

      I hate to generalize, but here goes...Germans seldomly have been able to take a chance with a design and still have it look good.

      kind of toyota-ish?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Every single body panel forward of the A-pillar ought to be scrapped. Of course, Brabus would probably charge extra to leave the stock items in place.

      I don't care how fast it can go. It can't outrun the ugly.

        I'm a MB fan, and i agree with you 100% The front end lines are all wrong on this.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's nifty how they took inspiration from the Ford Focus for those awful fender vents.

      I saw a Brabus S Class in black the other day, and it actually looked pretty cool. This looks way too busy because of the new E's lines. Maybe in black it would look less cobbled together.

      1280*850 does not a Hi-Res photo make.

      That front grille looks more like a manufacturing defect than a styling choice...

        @ Zeph "Yet more posts from the petroleum lobby boys, somewhere in a bunker in central texas..."

        Because we realize the impracticality, not to mention, extremely high cost of owning the few (basically, a Tesla Roadster) electric vehicles currently available we're suddenly petroleum lobbyists? . Good one. Also, last time I checked, exhaust gasses can be rather poisonous. My catless STi wouldn't work very well in a bunker :-( A little more favorable for an electric car and its angry owner, don't you think?








        • 5 Years Ago
        Not electric? What are you talking about?
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'm all about innovative engineering, particularly on the electric front, but until I have the ability to quickly and easily charge my car on the go I'll never, ever, consider buying a pure electric vehicle.

        I don't want to be limited by the pitiful range electric cars deliver. Some of us drive long distances and at this point in time, I'd imagine driving an electric vehicle to be rather problematic for this. Problematic in the "I'm stranded in the middle of no where" sense. It's not like I could even walk to the nearest gas station to bring back some Energizer bunny assistance...

        One benefit of electric vehicles, however, is that they're perfect for running over pedestrians. They sure are quiet.

        Oh, and that Brabus needs to be hit by a pelican.

        What a way to ruin what is an otherwise terrific car. But if you are stupid enough to spend an extra $50,000+ on a Brabus kit, this is what you can expect. I always like that AMG (and BMW M) are understated.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Oh, I forgot, straight from the Al Gore handbook. Anyone who dissents either works for, or is lobbying for big oil. Zeph, you just proved my point, with flying lib green colors my friend.
        • 5 Years Ago
        i think they done better in the past -- looks like a after thought body parts '' maybe is the color
        • 5 Years Ago
        I think the front grille is a technological concession, as it's where the radar system goes for the autobraking... I'll agree that the stock E series grille looks nicer though, even with the panel in the middle.

        Nice car, shame it's not electric...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Zeph's obsession with electric powered cars is courtesy of the green climate alarmist cult. The only viable source for supplying this level of demand is nulcear. Never going to happen, thanks to the same crowd who convinced him this is a good idea. Obama just shut down one of the biggest disposal grounds for nuclear waste, how magnanimous (incredibly stupid) of him. If that doesn't toll the death knell for nuclear power (at least for now) I don't know what does.

        Solar power is becoming a practical source, but not on the level needed for electric vehicles. Wind power is the biggest con job to date in the green movement. Don't forget the weight disadvantage of these vehicles, even with modern batteries. This technology would be a blast light to light, but that doesn't make it practical.

        All of this is moot, considering the complete lack of science supporting this nonsense. This crap is becoming dangerous and is no longer funny.

        Yet more posts from the petroleum lobby boys, somewhere in a bunker in central texas...

        It's about time we got the Dallas soap opera off the air. Heck, even JR Ewing pratically runs on alcohol these days...

        As for the range issue on electric cars, that will change with battery technology in the midterm, and a tesla has a decent enough range for everyday use. Soon electric cars will have a range long enough to be what a normal person should drive in a day anyway, at which point they will have got to the point the ICE is now. Quick charging at service stations will become commonplace too... But of course you need to invest to get there, the first ICE cars could not compare to the Brabus on this article.

        And if you run over a pedestrian it's your fault for not looking where you're going!

        Cheers folks, compliments to Sue Ellen.

        I think the future of automobiles is electric, so while this merc and others are nice swan songs I think we need to focus on the future and realize electricity is just better for many reasons...

        That's why I said it's a nice car but shame about it's powertrain. If I were in the market for something like this, and I may be in a few years, I would be looking at a Tesla Model S, which by coincidence is an E series chassis, although I'm not sure if it's this series or the previous one. And for the money this Brabus costs you could buy something like a Lightning GT...

        It's a great all round car, if you're looking at yesteryear. But c'mon, it's the XIst century guys...

      Something has gone horribly awry at Brabus. This needs to stop. Now.
      • 5 Years Ago
      All the body mods--save for the trunk lip--look ridiculous. Of course, since I can't afford one, my opinion is worthless.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Wow, I thought it was a really bad Chinese knock-off when I first saw the pic.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Bad ASS!
      • 5 Years Ago
      huh. that's pretty ugly.
