Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio by Brabus
Is there any point in describing Brabus projects as being outrageous, unique and brutally powerful? I’m thinking not, everyone knows by now their vehicles stand no comparison; nonetheless, all of these attributes seem to fit right as home within this customized Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio.
The stylish beast has debuted at the Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, where the Brabus-tuned Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio started bragging about being the world’s most powerful and quickest four-seater convertible out there. Developed in collaboration with Motul, the impressive S63 shows off a sinister all-black look, matching the 5.9-liter V8 engine. Helping the engine handle its business are two new Brabus turbochargers, with bigger compressor units and bespoke exhaust manifolds, as well as new 75-mm down pipes and reworked metal catalysts, not to mention the stainless steel exhaust system.
Considering all those tweaks, it should not come as a surprise that the S63 Cabrio’s engine develops 838 hp and 1,450 Nm of torque. In order to keep the engine from overworking itself, Brabus will limit torque to 1,150 Nm – sorry, dudes. All that power is delivered through an all-wheel-drive 4MATIC system and a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
You were thinking about performance, weren’t you? Well, let’s clear things up. Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabrio by Brabus will do 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds 0 to 124 mph (0-200 km/h) in just 9.4 seconds and will max out at 217 mph (350 km/h) – electronically limited, because the tires won’t handle any more. You might have also noticed the body-kit, 21″ alloys and lowered stance; so did I, and I love every inch of this incredible vehicle.
