A bored and stroked engine, bigger turbos, and larger intake help the mill make a whole lot more power.

Brabus knows how to customize the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and it says farewell to the previous generation of the rugged SUV by unveiling the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition 1 of 5. The limited-run model costs 482,000 euros, which includes 19 percent VAT in Germany, ($546,226.50 at current exchange rates) and premieres at the Geneva Motor Show.

Using the previous-gen G63 as a starting point, Brabus takes the model’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 then bores and strokes the mill so that the powerplant now displaces 6.0 liters. There are also bigger turbos and a larger diameter intake for getting plenty of cool air into the engine. Gold heat reflection material covers some of the piping for also keeping temperatures down. An exhaust with variable flaps lets drivers alter the sound out of the popes.

After these tweaks, the Brabus-tuned G-Class produces 838 horsepower (625 kilowatts) and a stump-pulling 1,069 pound-feet (1,450 Newton-meters) of torque. The output lets the SUV reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 4.7 seconds. The off-road tires force an electronic limit on the top speed to 131 mph (210 kph).

For handling rugged terrain, Brabus gives this G-Class portal axles that contribute to the SUV’s 23.62 inches (60 centimeters) of ground clearance. Revised dampers help the off-road work, too. Front and rear skid plates protect the vital components.

Aesthetically, the Brabus 850 G-Class wears an aggressive body kit that includes a naked carbon hood scoop. Big fender flares cover the 22-inch wheels with Pirelli Scorpion ATR tires. An LED light bar stretches across the roof

Brabus dresses the cabin of this SUV in a mix of black and blue leather. The rear bucket seats have power adjustment, memory, ventilation, and cooling. The firm also fits a 4.3-inch touchpad into the top of the center console for allowing occupants in the rear to adjust their chairs and tweak the HVAC settings. There are heated and cooled cup holders for them, too.

World Premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2019

BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR

Back again and bolder than ever!

800 horsepower, a top speed of 240 km/h, a spectacular widebody version, 23-inch hi-tech forged wheels and exclusive interior design in top quality

Ultimate high-performance off-roader based on the G 63 AMG

BRABUS is expanding its broad range of high-performance supercars with a new highlight: The BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Based on the current Mercedes G 63 AMG, the engineers, technicians and designers of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone +49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax +49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, internet www.brabus.com) developed a high-performance off-roader that impresses equally with power, design and individuality.

Nomen est omen and consequently the new BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR is powered by a four-liter eight-cylinder twin-turbo engine that produces a peak output of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft). This engine gives the off-roader performance capabilities that are absolutely exceptional for a vehicle of this category: The all-wheel-drive car sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km/h (149 mph).

However, the BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR fascinates not only with its driving dynamics, but also with its extravagant BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody version in combination with the 23-inch BRABUS “Platinum Edition” Monoblock hi-tech forged wheels.

A classy BRABUS fine leather interior lends the interior of the SUV an even more attractive ambiance.

The BRABUS power unit engineers have dedicated themselves to the tuning of Mercedes-Benz engines for decades, and BRABUS performance upgrades for the different engines of the G-Class have been around just as long. It goes without saying then that the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 of the current G 63 AMG is the focus of the developers as well. Research continued after the presentation of the BRABUS 700 PowerXtra performance upgrade last year to give the turbocharged eight-cylinder even more power.

The result is the BRABUS 800 PowerXtra + tuning level. Extensive surgery on the engine peripherals was required to produce even more power: This modification involves replacing the two production turbos with two reconfigured BRABUS high-performance turbochargers, which in addition to a larger compressor unit also have a modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearings. They produce a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar.

The electronic engine control unit was also recalibrated to match the hardware: an auxiliary control unit provides injection, boost pressure control and ignition with special mapping.

Tests on stationary engine test benches of the latest generation were run for weeks for calibration and endurance purposes in order to achieve not only outstanding power delivery, but also flawless durability. Extensive driving tests were conducted concurrently. That is why BRABUS backs also this new performance upgrade with the three-year or 100,000-kilometer / 60,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® (see BRABUS Tuning Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends hi-tech lubricants from technology partner MOTUL for the entire powertrain.

The result of these modifications gives the BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR its name: An extra 158.2 kW / 215 hp (212 bhp) translate into 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) at 6,600 rpm for the twin-turbo engine. The tuned engine produces significantly more torque: An added 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) mean a proud 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) at a low 3,600 rpm.

The driving performance is accordingly outstanding for an off-roader: The BRABUS supercar sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km (149 mph) due to the high vehicle weight. The nine-speed automatic transmission can optionally be shifted manually with the ergonomic BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

The installation of the BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system is advisable not only for the BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR supercar, but also for all stock G 63 AMG models. It not only optimizes the performance, but thanks to it actively controlled exhaust flaps, it also features an integrated sound management, which allows the driver to choose between the subtle “Coming Home“ mode and the markedly sporty V8 sound in “Sport” mode. The stainless-steel exhaust also adds striking visual highlights with two tailpipes exiting in front of the rear wheels on either side.

The spectacular appearance of the cross-country vehicle matches its exceptional performance: The combination of BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody version and mighty 23-inch forged wheels sets the five-door vehicle even further apart from the crowd. The fender flares at the front and rear axle add ten centimeters (4 inches) to the width of the current G-Model. In addition, their integrated LEDs illuminate the running boards between the flares as soon as a door handle is pulled or the central locking system is activated via Keyless Go by approaching the vehicle. The BRABUS logos in the fender attachments behind the front flares light up at the same time.

The wider fenders also create space for extremely large wheels and tires. BRABUS offers owners of the widebody version a broad range of tailor-made wheel/tire combinations with diameters from 20 to 23 inches.

The most exclusive option for the WIDESTAR version features 23-inch BRABUS Monoblock “Platinum Edition” forged wheels, which offer a perfect mix of lightweight construction and tremendous strength. The size 11Jx23 wheels come in four different BRABUS designs. On the show car, the German refinement specialist presents the latest variant of its popular Monoblock F cross-spoke wheel for the first time. The forged BRABUS Monoblock F “BLACK PLATINUM Special Edition” alloys are painted high-gloss black to match their name and are fitted with a “BLACK PLATINUM” badge on the outer flange. High-performance tires of size 305/35 R 23 supplied by BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA were picked as the optimal solution.

The BRABUS bodywork modifications not only captivate with their massive flares, but also with their redesigned fascia at the front and rear, which precisely fit the WIDESTAR fenders. The front element is fitted with large air intakes to provide the engine, radiators and brakes with an optimal supply of fresh air. The auxiliary LED lights under the side air intakes add to the dynamic looks and optimize the active safety at the same time. The hood is given a striking upgrade with a carbon hood attachment featuring two integrated power bulges. The BRABUS Branding Package with illuminated BRABUS logo for the radiator grille and additional elements on the rear end and the sides of the off-roader reveal the origin of this one-of-a-kind supercar.

The BRABUS Power Beams auxiliary light unit on the roof further characterizes the striking front of the high-performance SUV. At night, two powerful LED modules improve illumination of the roadway in front of the vehicle when the high beams or headlight flashers are activated. The BRABUS roof wing gives the rear end of the vehicle even more exciting looks.

The BRABUS rear fascia with stylized skid plate creates a homogeneous transition to the WIDESTAR fenders, which like the front flares feature stylized air vents in their backs to ensure a sporty appearance. Another attractive feature is the new naked-carbon spare wheel cover with BRABUS logo. In addition, all chrome parts on the show car were painted in vehicle color and the brake calipers and the BRABUS logo in the radiator grille were matched to the color of the interior appointments with a special hue.

The cockpit can of course also be customized to suit the vehicle owner’s personal preferences. To this end, the company upholstery shop creates exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior appointments at the highest level of artisan perfection. The choices of colors for the especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara are endless. The same is true for the many variants of noble-wood and carbon inlays, which can also be manufactured in a host of different colors and designs.

The BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 features a classy cuoio-colored BRABUS fine leather all-leather interior to contrast with the black paintwork. Black piping adds elegant highlights. The especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather in the interior features perforations and “Rising Diamond” quilting on the seat center sections applied with pinpoint precision. The BRABUS Starry Sky headliner made of black Alcantara makes the exclusive ambiance even more extravagant at night. The color of its hundreds of glass fiber optics changes in sync with the ambient lighting of the entire interior. In addition, gimbaled LED reading lights were integrated into the headliner for the rear passengers.

Further striking features in the cockpit are the BRABUS aluminum pedals and door-lock pins as well as the stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo.

Fuel economy, CO2 emissions and efficiency class:

BRABUS 800 WIDESTAR based on the Mercedes G 63 AMG: city 16.5 l/100 km, highway 11.1 l/100 km, combined: 13.1 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 345 g/km, efficiency class F.

BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28”

The world’s first performance-tuned electric car as an exclusive “tender” for the new BRABUS 500 recreational craft

The world’s first performance-tuned electric car meets a high-performance recreational craft in a class of its own. And both come from the same company: BRABUS!

The extravagant BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 as a quasi “tender to” the exclusive BRABUS 500 “Shadow OPS” Limited Edition “1 of 28” recreational craft.

Since 2016, BRABUS Marine has been cooperating with Axopar, the Finnish manufacturer of high-performance boats, and at the beginning of the year presented already its second own craft, which will be sold in a limited edition of 28 boats.

The agile city sports car that goes with this boat is based on the smart EQ fortwo cabrio and thanks to its electric motor uprated to 68 kW / 92 hp (91 bhp) with four different drive modes it is the first vehicle of its category with motor tuning.

Powered by this motor, the refined two-seater sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 10.9 seconds. The car has a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).

The dynamic agility of the “pocket rocket” from BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, internet www.brabus.com) is accompanied by a strikingly styled widebody version with 18-inch forged wheels and a luxurious BRABUS fine leather interior.

The design of the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” special model drew on the expertise of BRABUS ZERO EMISSION. This business unit of BRABUS Group has been working on alternative powertrains since 2008.

BRABUS has been one of the top addresses worldwide for exclusive high-performance automobiles for more than four decades. The BRABUS ZERO EMISSION business unit of the automotive manufacturer recognized by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority is dedicated to the development of cars with alternative powertrains. BRABUS Marine is another division of the Bottrop-based company, which deals with building and refining boats and yachts.

In the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” city sports car, the two teams pooled their expertise to build a “tender” for the new recreational craft presented by BRABUS Marine early this year – the BRABUS 500 “Shadow OPS“ Limited Edition “1 of 28”, whose two outboard motors with a combined output of 368 kW / 500 hp (493 bhp) give it a top speed of more than 50 knots (92.6 km/h/57.5 mph). The compact 28-foot boat is one of the most dynamic of its kind and comes from BRABUS Marine refined with exclusive appointments.

To be just as agile on land, BRABUS developed a “tender” for the city, which is not only equally nimble, but also boasts many parallels to its seagoing counterpart with regard to the design. The two-seater, which celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2019, is painted the same gunmetal gray and in the cockpit features the identical combination of red leather and Silvertex fabric as the BRABUS 500 “Shadow OPS” Limited Edition “1 of 28”.

However, instead of two eight-cylinder gasoline engines like the boat, the city speedster relies on an electric powertrain: The basis is provided by the smart fortwo EQ cabrio of the current generation, which is powered by a three-phase synchronous motor in the stern. The power is sent to the rear wheels by a single-speed transmission.

BRABUS stands for high performance and consequently the development engineers did of course not settle for the stock output of 60 kW / 82 hp (80 bhp). Thus, they developed a performance upgrade for an electric car, making BRABUS the first company in the world to do so. The BRABUS PowerXtra performance upgrade includes a reprogrammed torque control system, special modules for the driving dynamics switch and the accelerator pedal as well as a special gateway. These measures allowed unleashing and using the inherent reserves in this electric powertrain.

The “driving fun switch” in the cockpit enables the driver to choose between four different drive modes. In Level 1, the electric motor responds as in any stock smart EQ fortwo. In the “Eco” position, the energy recovery rate is increased and the two-seater brakes much more strongly than the production model when lifting off the accelerator. Level 3 stands for “Sport.” The accelerator pedal delivers quicker response and the energy recovery rate is dialed down to the production level.

When the driver selects the “Sport +” mode, the motor produces an increased peak output of 68 kW / 92 hp (91 bhp) and peak torque climbs to 180 Nm (133 lb-ft), a proud 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) more than the production vehicle. This mode also offers more direct accelerator pedal response while the energy recovery rate remains at the production level.

In “Sport +” mode, the BRABUS two-seater sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 10.9 seconds. The top speed remains limited to 130 km/h (81 mph).

It goes without saying that the exclusive city sports car remains completely carbon-neutral despite its increased performance. Depending on the driving style, the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” has a range of up to 125 kilometers (78 miles) on one battery charge.

However, the “tender” city sports car captivates not only with its eco-friendly and at the same time fascinatingly dynamic powertrain: The design of the city sports car also sets itself apart from the crowd! The two-seater is a preeminent eye-catcher not only thanks to its gunmetal gray special paintwork, but also thanks to its thrilling WIDESTAR body, which is exclusively reserved for the vehicles of the limited BRABUS Ultimate special editions.

The widebody version has a sporty and dynamic design with fender flares at the front and rear axle. They create space for 18-inch wheels with low-profile tires, which are highly unusual for an electric car of this size. Hi-tech forging technology is used to produce especially lightweight BRABUS Monoblock Y forged wheels for the current BRABUS Ultimate supercars based on the latest smart generation. With the front wheel weighing just 6.7 kilograms (14.7 pounds) and the rear wheel just 7.1 kilograms (15.6 pounds), the BRABUS Monoblock Y wheels for the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” are among the lightest 18-inch wheels on the market worldwide. A crucial factor in the lightweight construction is the delicate design featuring nine spokes with polished surfaces, which taper off into the outer rim of the wheel in the shape of a “Y.”

Thanks to the widebody version, the front axle can be fitted with size 7Jx18 wheels and size 205/35 R 18 high-performance tires. On the rear axle, size 235/30 R 18 tires on eight-inch rims provide optimal traction and agile handling.

The BRABUS suspension was specifically calibrated to the weight of the electric car, the ultra-low-profile tires and the wider track. It combines sporty and safe handling with the desired ride quality.

Of course, the widebody comprises not only wider fenders, but also aerodynamic-enhancement components such as front spoiler, rocker panels and rear diffuser, all developed in the wind tunnel.

The cockpit of the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” is a prime example of an outstanding combination of fascinating design, masterful workmanship and meticulous material selection as well. The company upholstery shop created a BRABUS fine leather interior in a combination of especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and Silvertex fabric for the seat surfaces. The red is exactly the same that also adorns the seats and lounger area of the boat. This color is found not only on the seats, the inner sections of the door panels and the steering wheel rim, but also on the dashboard. The lovingly finished details of this exclusive all-leather interior also include square quilting of the seat surfaces applied with pinpoint precision.

For a markedly sporty contrast, the BRABUS interior designers created naked-carbon components for the instrument cluster bezel, the air vent rings and the gage holding a charging indicator and clock mounted on top of the left side of the dashboard.

The BRABUS aluminum pedals, shift knob and parking brake lever add another touch of racing looks to the interior. In addition, this electric supercar is equipped with tailor-made scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, which like the emblem on the stainless-steel footrest in the driver’s footwell changes color from white to red. High-quality black floor mats with square quilting and red BRABUS logo complete the classy ambiance.

Of course, the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” also comes with such elementary comfort features as climate control, sound and navigation system. The “1 of 28” badge on the dashboard documents the affiliation with this exclusive limited edition.

Prices for the BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” start at 64,900 euros MSRP (price includes 19 percent VAT in Germany).

Power consumption, CO2 emissions and efficiency class:

BRABUS Ultimate E Shadow Edition “1 of 28” based on the smart fortwo: Power consumption (combined): 13.9 – 15.8 kWh/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 0 g/km, efficiency class A+

BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5”

Heavy-duty off-road supercar with 6.0 liter twin-turbo V8 increased-displacement engine, 625 kW / 850 hp, 1,450 Nm peak torque and exclusive BRABUS equipment

Raise the curtains for the most powerful BRABUS heavy-duty off-road supercar ever: The BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5” is built based on the Mercedes G 63 AMG of the W 463 model series.

Power and torque are also important for conquering obstacles. Consequently, the engineers and technicians of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone +49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax +49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, internet www.brabus.com) replace the standard 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with the BRABUS 850 6.0 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine, the most powerful eight-cylinder engine from the hi-tech engine shop of the company to date.

It accelerates the limited-edition supercar from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph) due to the uncompromising off-road tires.

Visually, the powerful black vehicle fascinates with its thrilling design featuring massive fender flares and a naked-carbon hood scoop. The front roof element with LED daytime running lights and the roof spoiler are made of that same material.

The exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior sports a combination of black leather and blue highlights.

Prices for the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5” start at 482,000 euros MSRP (price includes 19 percent VAT in Germany).

BRABUS has many decades of experience in refining the different Mercedes G-Class models. This also repeatedly included extremely off-road-capable variants such as the spectacular BRABUS 700 6×6 with dual rear axle or the BRABUS 550 ADVENTURE 4×4².

The new BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5” heavy-duty off-road supercar is based on the Mercedes G 63 AMG of the recently superseded W 463 model series. Maximum off-road capability is achieved thanks to the high ground clearance and the maximal articulation of the two axles. To this end, the BRABUS engineers and technicians converted the five-door car to portal axles developed specifically for this purpose. In addition, BRABUS installs a specially calibrated damping system.

Another body modification measure that is indispensable for maximum off-road capability is the installation of robust skid plate elements at the front and rear. The first things to notice are the massive BRABUS carbon fender flares, which create space for the size 9.5 J x 22 wheels painted in vehicle color, shod with Pirelli Scorpion ATR off-road tires of size 325/55 R 22.

Also characteristic for the off-road supercar is the BRABUS roof spoiler above the windshield, which is fitted with daytime running lights on the left and right, and the rear spoiler with integrated third brake light. In addition, there are naked-carbon components such as the bezels that frame the special dark-tinted headlights with integrated turn signals and the covers on the front fenders in place of the production turn signals rendered obsolete as a result. The BRABUS logo sits in a special carbon radiator grille.

The mighty hood scoop, likewise made of that same hi-tech composite material, provides an indication of the especially powerful heart beating under the hood: The best replacement for displacement is even more displacement, a philosophy that has stood at the core of the work of the BRABUS power unit engineers for decades. That is the reason why this principle is also applied to all Mercedes-Benz models equipped with the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 ex-factory. The result is the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo increased-displacement engine, which was also used for the G 63 AMG of the previous model series.

The displacement increase from 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc (333 to 361 cu in) is effected by boring out the cylinders in the BRABUS state-of-the-art engine shop as well as by installing eight forged pistons with a diameter of 99 millimeters (3.9 in). They connect to a precision-balanced billet crankshaft with a stroke of 96 millimeters (3.8 in) instead of the stock 90.5 millimeters (3.6 in) with special billet connecting rods. In addition, both cylinder heads are optimized for mixture flow.

The forced-induction system was also upgraded with high-performance components. The two production turbos are replaced with turbos with larger compressor unit and modified exhaust manifolds. To lower the charge air temperature further, the carbon intake and charge air pipes are fitted with special and immediately conspicuous “Gold Heat Reflection” sheathing.

Because the increased-displacement engine demands more combustion air, the BRABUS power unit engineers developed a special 850 intake module specifically for this engine conversion. It includes an air filter box with larger intake cross-section. The hood scoop creates not only more space on top, it also optimizes the air supply thanks to its central air intake and a sophisticated air deflection system.

Metal catalysts and the BRABUS sport exhaust system play their part in the optimal power delivery on the exhaust side. In addition, the exhaust system delivers a variable exhaust note. Thanks to the integrated actively controlled exhaust flaps, the driver can choose between a throaty V8 exhaust note in ‘Sport’ mode and a discreet sound in “Coming Home” mode. The all-stainless exhaust system is also a visual treat. The two black-chromed tailpipes exiting in front of the rear wheels on either side add some visually thrilling highlights.

The software was also modified to match the new engine hardware: In the course of extensive bench and road tests, the BRABUS power unit engineers and electronics specialists recalibrated the electronic engine control unit. The developers focused not only on outstanding power delivery, but also had maximum durability and exemplary emissions performance at the top of their list of priorities.

A displacement of six liters and two turbochargers complement each other to create another BRABUS engine in a class of its own. An output of 625 kW / 850 hp (839 bhp) at a low 5,400 rpm are just as much a top-class figure for off-roaders as is the huge peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft), on tap between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm. The entire powertrain is operated exclusively with high-performance lubricants from technology partner Motul.

This engine gives the BRABUS off-road supercar acceleration power that can measure up to full-blooded sports cars. 4.7 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (62) are absolute tops for an off-roader. The top speed is electronically limited to 210 km/h (130 mph) due to the off-road tires.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5”, which has its debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2019, was also fitted with especially exclusive interior appointments: The company upholstery shop created an exclusive BRABUS fine leather all-leather interior from the finest black leather.

The especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather in the interior features perforations on the seat center sections and square quilting, all applied with the same pinpoint precision. Every other diagonal row is backed with blue leather, which makes this design even more unusual. In addition, the piping and embroidered BRABUS logos in the interior sport that same color.

The BRABUS bucket seats in the rear offer all conceivable comfort features such as multi-contour adjustment, memory and integrated seat ventilation and heating. They replace the production seat bench. The new BRABUS center console, which features the same design as the rest of the interior, is installed between the two seats. The 4.3-inch BRABUS Touch Control Panel integrated into the top of the console is within easy reach. In standby mode, it shows a clock with BRABUS 850 illustration. In addition to controlling all seat functions in the rear, this innovative control also provides access to the standard COMAND system and the air conditioning system.

A USB multimedia port likewise integrated into the top of the console within easy reach allows charging a smartphone or tablet. Two integrated cup holders cool or heat the drinks of the rear passengers. Another important feature of the console is the integrated strongbox. This drawer opens electrically to the front only after entering a code on the Touch Control Panel.

Exclusive floor mats, likewise with square quilting, and the identically designed trunk mat in black leather round off the classy BRABUS interior.

Special power-retractable BRABUS steps were installed to make getting in and out easier.

Fuel economy, CO2 emissions and efficiency class:

BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4² Final Edition “1 of 5”: city 17.2 l/100 km, highway 11.8 l/100 km, combined: 13.8 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 322 g/km, efficiency class G.

662 kW / 900 hp, 1,500 Nm of torque and a top speed of 350 km/h Sporty-elegant styling and 21-inch hi-tech forged wheels

True to its brand, the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 represents the absolute pinnacle of automotive construction in the world. Nonetheless, even this luxury sedan leaves room for individual refinement, which BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) realizes with its best engineers, designers, technicians and artisans in the form of the unique BRABUS 900 luxury supercar.

The BRABUS ROCKET 900 6.3 V12 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine provides the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 with an enormous rated power output of 662 kW / 900 hp (888 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft). The top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h.

To match the extreme performance of the luxury liner, BRABUS adds some sporty-elegant highlights to the appearance of the four-seater with BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement components and 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock M “PLATINUM EDITION” hi-tech forged wheels. The shadow chrome plating of all standard chrome parts, which is also found on the BRABUS wheels, adds further custom touches.

Another BRABUS domain is exclusive interior design. The company upholstery shop is able to realize any individual request no matter how special it is with the finest leather, Alcantara, noble wood and carbon.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 comes off the factory line with a 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine producing 390 kW / 530 hp (523 bhp) and is thus anything but underpowered. However, powered by the BRABUS ROCKET 900 6.3 V12 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine, the luxury liner attains a performance level previously the exclusive domain of the world’s most powerful super sports cars.

To this end, the company high-tech engine shop employs the tried and proven principle of increasing the engine’s displacement. The installation of a custom BRABUS billet crankshaft with longer stroke in concert with a larger cylinder bore, matching forged pistons and precision-balanced connecting rods increases the displacement from 6.0 to 6.3 liters (366 to 384 cu in).

Extensive modifications to the engine peripherals are also imperative to achieve the desired level of high performance. The two production turbos are replaced with turbochargers that have larger compressor units and larger turbines, which are adapted to the V12 engine with the help of special exhaust manifolds. In addition, the conversion includes downpipes with a diameter of 80 millimeters (3.1 in), free-flow metal catalysts and a stainless-steel BRABUS high-performance exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flaps.

Numerous modifications on the intake side ensure the engine’s optimized air supply. The carbon-fiber BRABUS 900 intake module, which draws its air through an air duct in the hood directly from the redesigned radiator grille, is immediately identifiable. The new intake manifold includes a special air filter box with larger cross-section and special filters as well as “Gold Heat Reflection” sheathing for lowering the temperature.

Newly programmed mapping for injection, boost pressure control and ignition coordinate the perfect interaction of all high-performance components and modifications. The result is not only maximum power, but also compliance with the strict limits of the current EURO VI emissions standards.

After the conversion, the V12 engine, which is operated exclusively with hi-tech motor oil from MOTUL, has a peak output of 662 kW / 900 hp (888 bhp) at a low 5,500 rpm and produces a gigantic peak torque of 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm.

Despite a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 2.8 tons, the BRABUS supercar based on the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 delivers a performance usually only achieved by a few full-blooded super sports cars: Powered by the BRABUS ROCKET 900 6.3 V12 twin-turbo engine, the four-seater accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds. Depending on the installed wheel/tire combination, the luxury liner hits the limiter at a maximum speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Of course, the extensive BRABUS range of engine tuning also includes fitting performance upgrades for the S 560 version of the Mercedes-Maybach, which can increase the output of the 4.0-liter (243 cu in) twin-turbo V8 to up to 478 kW / 650 hp (641 bhp) and bump peak torque to 820 Nm (605 lb-ft).

To be able to use the tremendous road performance of the tuned luxury liner safely and give the vehicle an even more dynamic touch, the BRABUS suspension engineers developed tailor-made wheels. Available for the Maybach are 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock VI evo, Monoblock F, M, R and Monoblock Y “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels.

The show car at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 is equipped with the newest member of the BRABUS family of wheels: Monoblock M stands for a distinctive, large disc design with effectively used highlights in the form of ten openings of two different sizes and shapes each. The forged rims of this BRABUS 900 show car were given the same shadow chrome plating as all chrome parts on the bodywork.

These hi-tech wheels of sizes 9Jx21 at the front and 10.5J x21 on the rear axle make optimal use of the available space under the wheel arches of the Maybach. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires of sizes 255/35 ZR 21 for the front axle and 295/30 ZR 21 for the rear.

In addition, BRABUS also offers a 22-inch variant featuring the BRABUS Monoblock G design for the top-of-the-range S-Class models.

To enhance the high level of driving dynamics of the high-performance luxury sedan further still, BRABUS developed a special module for the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension of the Mercedes-Maybach. It lowers the ride height of the vehicle by about 25 millimeters (1.0 in) without compromising the outstanding ride quality.

The sporty-elegant BRABUS look for the Mercedes-Maybach, which is almost 21 centimeters (8.3 in) longer than the long-wheelbase version of the current S-Class, is rounded off with aerodynamic-enhancement components, which were developed in the wind tunnel for the current S-Class and are manufactured in OEM quality from PUR.

The BRABUS front bumper, which was newly developed for the facelift model, replaces the production bumper in its entirety. It provides not only a visual upgrade, but thanks to the integrated front spoiler also reduces front axle lift at high speeds, further improving the handling stability. The large air intakes in the BRABUS bumper optimize the supply of fresh air to radiators, engine and front brakes. With an understated chrome add-on package, on this show car naturally also in shadow chrome, the BRABUS designers pick up the design idiom of the top-of-the-range S-Class model in their aerodynamic-enhancement components as well.

An equally unusual and functional feature is the BRABUS courtesy welcome lighting, which is activated in the dark by pulling on an inside door handle or, if Keyless-Go mode is engaged, when the driver approaches the vehicle. The illumination of the ground to the left and right of the upgraded Maybach provides enhanced safety for getting in and out.

The BRABUS rear bumper redefines the view from the rear. Its integrated diffuser features tailor-made cutouts for the four chrome-plated tailpipes of the BRABUS high-performance exhaust system. The exhaust has actively controlled exhaust flaps to allow the driver to control the exhaust note at the push of a button on the steering wheel. Drivers can choose between operating their luxury sedan in a subtle and quiet ‘Coming Home’ mode and enjoying a markedly powerful engine sound in the ‘Sport’ position.

The customization of the interior is another particular BRABUS specialty. The company upholstery shop creates perfectly crafted BRABUS “Masterpiece” interiors for the Maybach models painstakingly tailored to the wishes of the vehicle owner in every detail.

This includes a limitless variety of types of leathers and Alcantara in any desired color, which can be finished in any desired upholstery design. Just as individual is the range of wood or carbon-fiber inlays, which are also available in any desired color and with a variety of surface finishes. The BRABUS 400-km/h speedometer (250-mph) matches the performance of the BRABUS 900 6.3 V12 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine. The ergonomic BRABUS RACE paddle shifters on the steering wheel make changing gears manually even more fun.

The show car on display in Geneva this year was fitted with an especially exquisite BRABUS “Masterpiece” all-leather interior in the company upholstery shop. The seats, parts of the dashboard and the door panels are trimmed with mocha-colored leather, with black piping providing contrast. The precise perforation of the classy material on the seat surfaces ensures optimal functioning of the seat ventilation. The diamond quilting of the leather on selected parts of the seats and door panels was applied with that same precision. Even the likewise mocha-colored leather flooring largely sports the same quilting pattern. Another unusual BRABUS idea is the starry sky headliner, whose hundreds of fiber optics can change color in sync with the ambient lighting.

BRABUS is one of the pioneers in the development of innovative, functional and stylishly integrated business and multimedia systems in cars. The BRABUS in-car IT experts utilized this expertise to develop a business and entertainment concept that was integrated into the Mercedes-Maybach equally perfectly and stylishly.

As part of the interior refinement, a BRABUS center console developed specifically for the luxury sedan with extra-long wheelbase was installed, which extends all the way to between the two bucket seats in the rear. When needed, a table for each seat extends from the console at the touch of a button, which is perfect for working with a tablet PC, for example.

Of course, BRABUS also offers its customers business and multimedia systems for the luxury sedan.

The BRABUS 900 based on the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 can be built to customer order as a complete car. Customers who already own such a car can have their own luxury sedan converted to this level all at once or in stages.

The exclusive high-performance all-wheel-drive coupe with 588 kW / 800 hp, 1,000 Nm of torque and just 3.1 seconds for the sprint to 100 km/h

High-performance supercars have always been a domain of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com). In the BRABUS 800 Coupe based on the Mercedes S 63 AMG 4MATIC+, the world’s largest independent automotive refinement specialist showcases a powerful coupe at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 that meets the highest standards.

The new 4.0-liter twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine of the current S 63 models offers reserves ex-factory that the BRABUS power unit engineers unleash without compromising the durability.

To achieve the intended 800 horsepower, the forced induction system had to be modified. BRABUS developed special high-performance turbochargers to achieve a significant increase in power. A modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearings and a larger compressor unit provide a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar.

To match the new hardware, the engineers also modified the engine control unit. To this end, a BRABUS PowerXtra plug-and-play auxiliary control module is adapted to the CAN data bus. This module provides the engine with new mapping for injection, ignition and boost pressure control, which was developed in extensive tests on state-of-the-art test benches and on public roads.

After the conversion, the BRABUS 800 engine delivers outstanding performance figures: The peak power of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) is produced at a low 6,100 rpm. Just as impressive is the peak torque of 1,000 Nm, on tap already at just 3,600 rpm.

The power is transmitted to all four wheels by the 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed automatic transmission, which can also be shifted manually with the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel.

This power unit in the bow makes the BRABUS 800 Coupe one of the most powerful four-seat all-wheel-drive coupes in the world. From rest, the exclusive two-door reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds. The top speed is limited electronically to 300 km/h (186 mph). A BRABUS Vmax module for even higher top speeds is in development.

Technology partner MOTUL supplies the hi-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain of the new BRABUS supercar. The strong sides of the BRABUS sport exhaust system are sound and performance. It is available for all S 63 variants. The all-stainless system reduces the exhaust backpressure and features exhaust flaps for an electronically controlled sound management. From the cockpit, the driver can choose between the subtle “Coming Home” mode and the open position of the exhaust flaps, which coaxes a markedly powerful exhaust note from the twin-turbo V8.

The increased performance potential naturally also places high demands on the aerodynamic-enhancement components, which were newly developed by the BRABUS designers for the facelift version of the S-Class coupe in the wind tunnel.

BRABUS developed an additional front spoiler lip for the front bumper. It is produced from naked carbon and finished with a high-gloss sealer. As a result, it lends the two-door some motor racing flair. The thrilling looks are accompanied by aerodynamic efficiency. The new front spoiler reduces front-axle lift at high speeds, which further optimizes the handling stability. Tailor-made carbon elements also give the large air intakes in the front bumper a more dynamic design.

The aerodynamic-enhancement concept for the current S-Class coupe is rounded off by the BRABUS naked-carbon diffuser with tailor-made cutouts for the BRABUS sport exhaust system, and the subtle rear spoiler on the trunk lid, which is likewise made from carbon. The designers also developed carbon covers for the side mirrors and carbon attachments for the side air vents, which highlight the sporty lines even more. To give the two-door an even more dynamic appearance, all standard-fit chrome trim on the vehicle body was painted in vehicle color.

The outstanding traits of the BRABUS Monoblock wheels are thrilling design, highest quality and further enhanced driving dynamics. They are available for the Mercedes S-Class coupe with diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches.

At the Geneva Motor Show 2019, the new high-performance coupe is on display with two different wheel designs: One side of the supercar for the first time presents the new BRABUS Monoblock F “BLACK PLATINUM Special Edition” rims manufactured using hi-tech forging technology. As the name indicates, the cross-spoke design sports a high-gloss black paint finish and a “BLACK PLATINUM” badge. In sizes 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 in back, they make perfect use of the available space under the wheel arches. They are mounted with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires in sizes 255/35 ZR 21 at the front and 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle as the optimal solution.

The other side of the vehicle shows off the even larger BRABUS Monoblock G “Platinum Edition” forged wheels. It features 9Jx22 rims with 255/30 ZR 22 tires on the front axle and 10Jx22 wheels with 295/25 ZR 22 tires at the rear. All these wheels use state-of-the-art forging technology, which offers an optimal blend of maximum strength and lightweight construction. 

The BRABUS lowering module, which lowers the ride height of the two-door by about 15 millimeters (.6 in) is specifically calibrated to the ultra-low-profile tires.

BRABUS fine leather – this badge on the seatbacks documents that the interior of this show car was crafted in the upholstery shop of the refinement specialist. To match the sporty character of the BRABUS 800 Coupe, the designers chose black leather sewn with utmost precision in every nook and cranny.

Red piping, white topstitching and elements with equally bright red glazing add sporty touches to the cockpit. In addition, the interior was enhanced with BRABUS RACE paddle shifters, pedals and door pins, all made of aluminum.

Scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo whose colors can change matching the ambient lighting in the interior round off the cockpit.

The BRABUS 800 Coupe is available as a complete vehicle or can be built based on any existing current Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+ Coupe.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and efficiency class:

BRABUS 800 Coupe based on the Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+ Coupe: city 11.7 l/100 km, highway 7.3 l/100 km, combined: 8.9 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 203 g/km, efficiency class D.

exclusive BRABUS Business Plus interior

BRABUS has been one of the pioneers in the development of innovative, functional and stylishly integrated business and multimedia systems in cars for decades. A van such as the current Mercedes V-Class, especially with extra-long wheelbase, is naturally exceedingly suited for such equipment features due to its generous space, in this case equipped with a partition wall that separates the rear compartment from the cab.

The BRABUS Business Plus concept offers a perfect combination of comfort, communication and entertainment: four rear seats in conference arrangement, the two forward-facing seats in luxurious business specification, are just as much a given, as is internet access via LTE router with in-car WLAN and state-of-the-art infotainment technology. The BRABUS MEDIA CENTER makes it possible to integrate smartphones, tablets and notebooks via the BRABUS CLOUD available in the vehicle.

The BRABUS media player in concert with Apple TV and a Sony PlayStation 4 provides entertainment at the highest level. The monitor integrated into the partition wall and the sound system of the van reproduce the signals.

The infotainment system is controlled with two BRABUS TOUCH CONTROL PANELS integrated next to the multi-adjustable business seats. They also operate other functions in the interior such as, for example, the power curtains or the lights.

Zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h

The world’s most powerful and fastest SUV coupe with 625 kW / 850 hp and 1,450 Nm peak torque

The Mercedes GLE 63 4MATIC is the perfect basis, which the engineers and designers of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) turn into the world’s most powerful and fastest SUV coupe.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4 Coupe is powered by a turbocharged V-8 with a displacement increase to six liters (361 cu in). With a rated output of 625 kW / 850 hp (838 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft), the supercar accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 320 km/h (200 mph).

Aerodynamic-enhancement components made from naked carbon and tailor-made BRABUS wheels including 23-inch king-sized rims lend the fastback SUV an especially exclusive appearance.

BRABUS fine leather interiors created from the finest leather and Alcantara in any desired color are available for customizing the cockpit.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine turns the GLE 63 Coupe and of course its brethren sporting the standard five-door body style into a high-performance vehicle in a class of its own.

To increase the displacement of the eight-cylinder engine from standard 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc (333 to 361 cu in), BRABUS bores out the cylinders to 99 millimeters (4.0 in) and installs correspondingly larger forged pistons. A special billet crankshaft with a stroke of 96 mm (3.8 in) instead of the standard 90.5 millimeters (3.6 in) and similarly forged longer connecting rods round off the displacement increase. In addition, both cylinder heads of the V-8 are optimized for mixture flow.

The BRABUS 850 intake module designed specifically for the BRABUS increased-displacement engine immediately stands out when the hood is popped. It is made from carbon, and includes a new air filter box with enlarged intake cross-section. A sophisticated air duct integrated into the hood supplies it with cooling air.

Other equally fundamental components of the high-performance engine on the other hand are hidden deep down in the engine bay: The two production turbos are replaced with special turbochargers with larger compressor units and modified exhaust manifolds. To lower the charge air temperature further, the intake and charge-air pipes are insulated with “Gold Heat Reflection” sheathing that immediately catches the eye.

This engine conversion also includes larger down pipes with a diameter of 75 millimeters (3.0 in) and a newly designed exhaust system. In concert with metal catalysts, the BRABUS stainless-steel exhaust system with controlled exhaust flaps optimizes the power delivery. This exhaust also offers active sound management controlled from the driver’s seat: The exhaust note can be alternated between a throaty V-8 sound in “Sport” mode and a subtle whisper in “Coming Home” mode.

The BRABUS engine and electronics engineers used their tremendous knowledge to ensure the optimal interaction of these high-performance components in extensive tests on the road and on test benches. This ensures not only maximum power, but also exemplary clean emissions and flawless durability. BRABUS vouches for this with the model three-year or 100,000-kilometer/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL.

This vastly elaborate design is reflected in outstanding performance: The rated power output of 625 kW / 850 hp (839 bhp) at a low 5,400 rpm and the gigantic peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm are both reference values in this category of vehicles.

The performance of the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4×4 Coupe is correspondingly outstanding: The SUV weighing more than 2,350 kilograms (5,180 pounds) accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. Tire limitations necessitate restricting the top speed electronically to 320 km/h (200 mph).

Thrilling looks and optimal aerodynamic function: The BRABUS designers developed bodywork components made from the hi-tech material carbon for the GLE 63 Coupe, which on the show car at the Geneva Auto Show 2018 received a matte racing-look finish. The front spoiler lip, which attaches to the lower section of the bumper, lends the SUV an even more distinctive face. What is more: Its sophisticated shape minimizes front-axle lift at high speeds for further optimized handling stability. The air intakes at the sides of the front bumper feature tailor-made air deflectors to give the vehicle an even sportier
