As a well-known Mercedes-Benz tuner, Brabus will clearly not forget to work on the latest crucial models to make them fierce. Most recently the E-Class, which recently underwent a facelift, got its turn. To be precise, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic was brought into the line-up of “Supercars” as the Brabus 800. Fast for sure, finished with interesting design details all over his body.
In the Supercars Brabus line-up, the 800 nomenclature may not indicate the contestant’s wildest yet. Even so, its potential still cannot be underestimated. All are AMG models at the caste level “63” that was touched by the cold hands of technicians in Bottrop, Germany. Starting from the G-Class, S-Class, AMG GT, to the E-Class like this one.
Then behind the bonnet will be found a special arrangement of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Total extraction according to the nomenclature, prepares a power output of up to 800 hp. Even more sadistic is the claimed torque figure of up to 1,000 Nm. Everything is channeled to the four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. With this potential, he is able to complete the acceleration to 100 kph in just three seconds. Tackled out, the speed must be limited to 300 kph.
Acoustic play is made to adjust the engine’s capabilities. Carrying a complete stainless-steel exhaust gas system, valve control, and carbon fiber sweetener. Can sound a fierce growl from the V8 while simultaneously delivering power by reducing back pressure on the exhaust. In addition, the driver can choose the minimum volume mode from “coming home” to “Race”.
It’s not Brabus if it doesn’t show off its quirky bends. Dressed in black by playing with the many large air cavities. But if you look at the details, it is not limited to using ordinary black sweeteners. There will be many details of bare carbon fiber found in aerodynamic components. It can be selected in a glossy or matte finish.
The low stance of the asphalt licker is the work of the suspension module concocted by Brabus. The height can be adjusted from 10 to 20 mm depending on the driving mode. Also supported is the use of 21-inch Brabus Monoblock “Platinum Edition” Z-style 10-spoke forged shoes. Not finished yet, you can enjoy a high-performance selection of high-performance tires made by Continental, Pirelli, or Yokohama.
Obviously not just a style. Body sweetener devices certainly improve aerodynamics. Including the front lip spoiler and air cavity to reduce lift in the front axle to maintain stability at high speeds. The new rear spoiler and diffuser are designed to provide aerodynamic balance by adding downforce in addition to making the appearance more fierce.
In the cabin, the conversion of Brabus nuances will be felt strongly. The Brabus 800 edition selection carries high-quality leather wrappings. Not to mention the affirmation of character through the complete luminous logo door sill according to the ambient lighting setting along with special accessories such as aluminum pedals and door pins. As a home modification, personalization steps according to clear preferences are very possible for consumers to enjoy.
It did not say how much it cost, which was clearly not cheap. However, the Brabus 800 package is not only fixed on the sedan model. It can still be glimpsed if you are hooked on the long butt of the wagon, which is ferociously powered in an eccentric style.
Brabus’ widest saloon option is only 10 units available
The number 800 has not been the culmination of a tuner from Bottrop, Germany. If you are fond of super-fast four-door sedans, there is the god based on the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S. Brabus raises high-performance standards to a new level so that the name Rocket 900 comes out.
It was completely scratched out, not just tuning the chip. Booster upgrades include a mechanical component. It is proven that the built-in V8 Biturbo engine cubication is increased from 4.0 liters to 4.5 liters. In addition, Brabus is also tinkering with the air compactor sector. A special pair of turbochargers was created with a larger compressor. Aims to increase the boost pressure up to 1.4 bar. Also, fresh air can be directly inhaled from the front through the ram air intake right at the corner of the grille.
After the hardware gets a touch, the software must adjust. The ECU is recalibrated with re-mapping of injection, combustion, and boost pressure control. All have gone through a wide range of tests from engine test-bench, four-wheel drive-specific rolling-road, to road and circuit tests.
Mechanical arable results reward abundant output. Far from the standard version which is actually one of the fastest sedans today. As the name implies, a total of 900 hp can spit out by Brabus Rocket 900. In addition, it is capable of kicking 1,250 Nm of torque towards all four wheels even though it is actually limited to 1,050 Nm. The power supply is the 9-speed Speedshift MCT multi-clutch gearbox combined with the 4Matic + system.
