Both Mercedes and the company’s high-performance subbrand, AMG, have gifted a number of enticing vehicles to the automotive community in recent years. But if their most recent GT 63 S doesn’t already tickle your fancy as one of the most powerful production models around, rest assured — Germany’s premier aftermarket tuning company, Brabus, have taken it upon themselves to give the vehicle a substantial makeover.
To bring the GT 63 S to its current state of 789 horsepower, the “Brabus 800” has an extensive ECU remap, improved software, and a pair of bolstered turbochargers that garner an additional 159 horsepower over the original platform. At 737 lb-ft of torque, the substantially improved sport sedan rockets from 0-62 miles per hour in just under 2.9 seconds — topping out at a blistering 196 mph before hitting an electronically-limited barrier. Naked carbon peripherals, a new front spoiler, and a quad-tip sports exhaust system complement the 800’s adaptable air suspension system, allowing drivers to transition from “performance” to “aesthetic” at the touch of a button. If you’re interested in procuring your own example, contact Mercedes-AMG directly for more information.
