Regular Mercedes-AMG GT not powerful enough? Not even in GT S guise, you say? Well, if that’s the case, Brabus may have the perfect solution for you. The iconic German-based tuner has revealed its take on the Silver Arrow’s latest flagship sports coupe, which is set to make its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Before we delve into the numbers, let’s have a closer look to see what exactly has changed externally. Up front, the Brabus-fettled Mercedes-AMG GT S is presented with a new front bumper constructed out of carbon while an additional row of LED side marker lights are now embedded into the air intake.

Further back, a pair of redesigned air outlets by the front wheel arches are said to “sharpen the profile of the car” while 20-inch Brabus Monoblock F cross-spoke wheels are featured in front – the rear wheels are 21-inch units. Owners can choose from a range of Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama high-performance tyres that measure in at 275/30 in front and 305/25 at the back.

Also, a Brabus-developed sports suspension setup lowers the car by a further 15 mm. At the rear, a fixed spoiler is featured while four exhaust outlets are to be found embedded within a redesigned bumper with a diffuser – the changes are said to provide “optimised handling stability at high speeds.” The exhaust system itself fashioned out of a mixture of carbon and titanium and weighs about 40% less than the standard setup.

Now, for the party piece. The car’s biturbo 4.0 litre V8 engine has been paired to a plug-and-play control module that “features new mapping for injection and ignition while also moderately increasing the boost pressure.” In short, the Brabus Mercedes-AMG GT S now pumps out a total of 600 hp at 6,400 rpm and 750 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. Zero to 100 km/h takes just 3.6 seconds while top speed has jumped to 325 km/h.

On the inside, the cabin of the Brabus-tuned Mercedes-AMG GT is swathed in leather although the firm’s very own upholstery department can trim the cabin in almost any choice of coloured leather or Alcantara. Elsewhere, carbon scuff plates with steel inserts and backlit Brabus wording are to be found along with customised aluminium sports pedals and paddle shifters.
