Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Brabus 1 crop

Only recently was the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S showcased to the world, and then spotted on Malaysian roads in Edition 1 guise. Now, Brabus has announced an extensive tuning programme for the sports sedan, to be unveiled at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

In total, the Brabus-tuned C 63 S produces some 90 hp and 100 Nm more than the standard car, with the 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo engine now making 600 hp and 800 Nm of torque. The company says that this is made possible through a plug-and-play auxiliary control module, coupled with new engine mappings for the injection and ignition while boost pressure has also been increased.

The modifications is what the company names as the Brabus PowerXtra B40 – 600 kit. The tuned special now goes from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds, while the Estate, with the same performance kit, does it a tenth of a second slower. Both cars have a top speed of 300 km/h, up from a limited 250 km/h. A Brabus sport exhaust system is also offered. What’s a C 63 without growl, right?

A number of Brabus exterior add-ons can be had, including an aero package, which the company says was developed with the help of a wind tunnel to reduce aerodynamic drag. The kit is made from clear-coated carbon and a choice of matte or glossy finishes can be specified.

Other than that, a Brabus spoiler lip, carbon surrounds for the side air intakes, along with a diffuser in the back and a rear spoiler are also part of the package. The rims are 20-inch king-sized Brabus Monoblock T five-spoke wheels with carbon inlays on each spoke, wrapped with 255/30 ZR20 tyres up front and 275/30 ZR20 for the rear.

Interior options include stainless steel scuff plates, a colour-changing backlit Brabus logo, as well as aluminium paddle shifters and Brabus Mastik leather and Alcantara upholstery. On top of that, wood and carbon trims can be added into the mix with a choice of surface finishes.
