You can't even buy the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class yet, but Brabus is ready to help you prepare for it. The German tuning house has engineered a suite of upgrades for the sedan that does just about everything but provide a button for its own aftermarket tune. The heart of any Brabus is the engine, and there are three heart transplants to choose from: there's the B50S for the S550 that adds 65 horsepower, for a total of 520 hp and 604 pound-feet of torque; the B63 takes the S63 AMG up to 650 hp and 737 lb-ft; and the B63S rings the bell with 730 hp and 785 lb-ft. A top-speed limiter allows the option of capping velocity at either 155 mph, 168 mph or 186 mph.

As if the rock-crushing power and eye-watering speed weren't enough to set the barge apart from others, an aero kit, two styles of monoblock wheels ranging from 19 to 21 inches, a lowered suspension and a sport exhaust will add the florid plumage to your shiny new peacock. Brabus can tell you even more about it in the press release below.

BRABUS refines the new Mercedes S-Class
537 kW / 730 hp, 1,065 Nm and 325 km/h


Powerful, fast, individual and exclusive: concurrent with the sales release of the new Mercedes S-Class, 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 refinement program for the luxury sedan from Stuttgart. In a first step there will be performance kits for the eight-cylinder models that deliver up to 537 kW / 730 hp (720 bhp) of power, 1,065 Nm (785 lb-ft) of torque, a top speed up to 325 km/h (202 mph), tailor-made wheels with diameters up to 21 inches, and exclusive options for the interior. An aerodynamic-enhancement program with sporty-elegant design for the W 222 model series lends the vehicle an even more dynamic appearance. All 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 November 2006).

BRABUS offers the world's most extensive engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles, which of course will be adapted to the new S-Class. In a first step customers will be able to choose from several performance kits for the V8 Biturbo engines.

The special mapping for injection and ignition as well as the moderately increased boost pressure of the plug-and-play BRABUS B50 - 520 PowerXtra CGI performance kit unleash an extra 65 horsepower from 4.7-liter eight-cylinder Biturbo engine of the S 500.

After the conversion, power output jumps from 335 kW / 455 hp (449 bhp) to 382 kW / 520 hp (512 bhp), while peak torque grows to 820 Nm (604 lb-ft). With it, the four-door car accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. The BRABUS Vmax unit that is part of the engine conversion allows limiting the top speed electronically to 250, 275 or 300 km/h (155, 168 or 186 mph).

Various ultra-powerful tuning levels offering up to 107 kW / 145 hp (143 bhp) of added power are available for the S 63 AMG, which ex-factory produces 430 kW / 585 hp (576 bhp): the BRABUS B63 - 650 PowerXtra CGI version serves up 478 kW / 650 hp (641 bhp) at a low 5,500 rpm. At the same time, peak torque jumps from 700 to 1,000 Nm (516 to 737 lb-ft), on tap between 2,250 and 3,750 rpm.

Also available is the BRABUS B63S - 730 high-performance version, which is unmistakable thanks to the distinctive BRABUS Gold Heat Reflection system for the intake and charge-air pipes. Replacing the two production turbochargers with two special BRABUS turbos with larger compressor unit generates a higher boost pressure. For even more added power the engine conversion also includes a low-temperature water radiator for the intercooling system, a free-flow exhaust system with metal catalysts and 75-mm (3-in.) thick downpipes, as well as special BRABUS mapping for the engine management system.

The BRABUS B63S - 730 engines produces 537 kW / 730 hp (720 bhp) of power at a low 5,300 rpm. Peak torque is limited electronically to 1,065 Nm (785 lb-ft) and available consistently between 1,750 and 5,000 rpm. Top speed is limited electronically to a maximum of 325 km/h (202 mph) by the BRABUS Vmax unit that is part of the conversion.

BRABUS recommends the use of fully synthetic MOTUL high-performance motor oil.

As the ideal complement to the engine conversions or for combining with the production engines, BRABUS offers a sport exhaust system with controlled butterfly valve for all new S 500 and S 63 AMG models. At the push of a button on the steering wheel drivers can choose whether to operate the V8 in a discrete "Coming Home" mode or to enjoy a markedly throaty exhaust note in the "Sport" position.

At the high speeds these vehicles attain the aerodynamic properties are also a crucial factor. To minimize negative lift on front and rear axle and to create an optimal aerodynamic balance, the BRABUS designers are in the wind tunnel to develop a sporty-elegant body conversion kit. The components, which are manufactured from PUR plastics and carbon fibers, give the luxury sedan a dynamic visual upgrade and will be presented at the IAA International Auto Show 2013 in Frankfurt/Main.

Already available for the new S-Class are tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock alloy wheels with diameters of 19, 20 or even 21 inches. The largest tire/wheel combination on offer features forged and mirror-polished BRABUS "PLATINUM EDITION" Monoblock VI or Monoblock F cross-spoke wheels in size 9Jx21 on the front axle and in size 10.5Jx21 in the rear. The optimal tires come from Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 in front and 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle.

To be able to further improve the dynamic handling of the high-performance luxury sedan BRABUS has developed special control modules that lower the ride height of vehicles with AIRMATIC or Active Body Control suspension by about 15 millimeters (0.6 in.).

Unadulterated luxury and individuality in the interior is a particular BRABUS specialty. The range of options for the new S-Class spans from scuff plates with BRABUS logo to exclusive BRABUS 'fine leather' interiors crafted from especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and the finest Alcantara. The new Mercedes S-Class can be further refined with a BRABUS multimedia system that is as exclusive as it is technologically innovative.

      The only reason I see for all that power is either for boasting or running a race track and no way will this thing fit on a race course. It really doesn't have a place in this World..unless it was made for the head of Goldman Sacs to display how greed money scams and legal crimes pay off in the form of an overpowered, impractical, roach-ugly car.

      If you look at the side profile the new S-class is identical to the old one, the new s-class is essentially a facelift from the outside.

        @Trevor.... yeah Trevor. And the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner is essentially a facelift of the Boeing 777 from the outside... what about you. Are you just a facelift of your dad from the outside?

      Florid Plumage.....damn, I wish I had taken more english classes in college. My engineering reports are so vanilla and could definitely benefit from some $10 words. Also, just found out that S500 4matics from the mid 2000s can be had for less than a new Focus SEL.

      It's not a Brabus without a twin turbo V12 capable of over 1000lbft of torque (but usually limited for sanity's reasons). Kidding, the V8 putting out similar power numbers is pretty impressive.

      Very nice. I MIGHT be able to afford the car, but when you add the gas bill I'm sunk. Such a hot car, though. Good work, Brabus--looks good without appearing overdone.
