Brabus B63S 6x6 Sixes Up The Messe
14 Septembre 2013 - Autoblog
We didn't think things could get any more bonkers when Mercedes-Benz released the G63 AMG 6x6. But that's before we landed in Frankfurt and saw what Brabus has done with the beast.
The Benz tuner par excellence has applied its B63S performance package to increase the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8's output from 536 horsepower up to 690 and from 561 pound-feet of torque to 708. Driving through all six – count 'em, six – wheels, that's enough to propel the four-ton colossus from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 7.4 seconds, which is mighty quick for what essentially amounts to a six-wheeled tank. Brabus kept the 37-inch off-road tires in place, however, limiting top speed to 100 mph.
Aside from the bigger turbos, gold-sheathed intake, high-performance catalysts, 2.9-inch downpipes and stainless steel variable exhaust system and remapped ECU that Brabus fitted to raise the engine's output, it also installed a new front spoiler, carbon-fiber hood scoop, LED and Xenon lighting and a black and red leather and Alcantara interior.
