In its most potent form, the C63 S puts out 503 hp, which is more than enough to get into some trouble with. While the C63 S is already more powerful than its competitors, Brabus has upped performance to supercar level with a host of modifications that give it the same capabilities of certain Italian exotics.
The German tuning company has gone to work on the C63 S’ 4.0-liter twin-turbo by updating its turbochargers with a larger compressor unit, a reprogrammed ECU, a special core assembly with reinforced axial bearings, as well as a fully stainless-steel exhaust system with actively controlled butterfly valves. That may not seem like a lot of new parts, but Brabus’ PowerXtra B40S-650 increases performance to 641 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. This allows the sedan to get to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 320 km/h. That means that Brabus’ C63 S is just as quick as a Maserati MC12.
The tuning company also partnered with Bilstein to develop specially tuned height-adjustable coilover suspension that allows the driver to adjust the rebound and compression rates of the gas-pressure shocks at the front and rear axle to be changed to one of ten settings. To give the C63 S a more aggressive look, Brabus fitted the sedan with a host of carbon bodywork parts that come in either matte or mirror-polished sealed surface. The available aero bits include a rear spoiler, a front apron, mirror caps, and rear diffuser. Brabus also offers interior customization, which includes aluminum trims and accents, as well as unique upholstery.
Brabus offers the Mercedes C63 S with bespoke 20-inch wheels that can be mounted to either Pirelli, Yokohama, or Continental tires. The Brabus C63 S will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
