You would think that a Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet is fast and luxurious enough to satisfy even the most particular petrol head. Well, if you do, then you obviously don’t know Brabus. Recognized for their over-the-top outfits of Mercedes-Benz vehicles both new and old, Brabus has been in the biz since 1977 and this new release does nothing if not uphold their reputation for excellence.

Dubbed the 850 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio, this Brabus build is the world’s fastest and most powerful four-seat convertible. It was unveiled at this past weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans and most certainly turned a few heads in the process. To create this monster, Brabus increased the displacement of the twin-turbocharged V8 from 5.5 to 5.9 liters and hooked the Mercedes up with several upgrades including a new exhaust system, turbos, forged pistons, connecting rods, crankshaft, and cylinder heads. What’s left is a top-down lunatic with 838 horsepower and 848 pound-feet of torque. It’s a seven-speed automatic that does 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph, the same top speed as a McLaren P1. Brabus didn’t disclose any pricing but interested parties will need to cut a check for at least $180,000 for the AMG Cabriolet donor car alone.
