New Brabus Power Kit for All Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG Models

New Brabus Power Kit for All Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG Models

Source: Brabus | Published: June 5, 2007

Even more power for all Mercedes 63 AMG models: Brabus presents its B63 S engine tuning, which boosts power output of the high-revving 6.2-liter V8 to 550 bhp and peak torque to 480 lb-ft. With a sprint time from rest to 62 mph of just 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph, a CLS 63 AMG with B63 S tuning turns in performance worthy of a true super sports car.

The Brabus power kit comprises newly programmed engine electronics with special mapping for injection and ignition. But thatís not all; the intake side features a sport air filter for improved supply of combustion air. The exhaust side features high-performance metal catalysts with low back pressure that also ensure that the tuned V8 engine meets stringent EURO IV emission limits.

In order to transfer the increased power to the road with minimum slip Brabus recommends the Brabus locking differential for all Mercedes 63 models with rear wheel drive. The diff lock has a locking rate of up to 40 percent.

The Brabus B63 S performance kit is available for all Mercedes 63 AMG models. With 550 bhp the ML 63 accelerates in 4.9 seconds from 0 - 62 mph and reaches a top speed of 170 mph in combination with the Brabus V/max unit.

This extraordinary performance represents a good argument for modifications to tires, suspension and brakes. Depending on the Mercedes 63 AMG model in question Brabus offers custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations up to size 11Jx23 with tires up to 315/25 R23 in size. To further improve the already excellent handling characteristics Brabus has developed a control module for the ABC suspensions that lowers the ride height by about 0.8 inch. Brabus sport stabilizers reduce body roll and optimize turn-in.

The Brabus high-performance brake system offers stopping power and endurance normally only found in purebred sports cars. It is available for all Mercedes 63 AMG models, upon customer request even in a special version with ceramic discs. The front axle features 380 x 36 millimeter discs and 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers. The rear axle is fitted with six-piston fixed calipers and 355 x 28 mm brake discs.

The list of Brabus exclusive interior accessories ranges from genuine carbon-fiber trim and scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo to ergonomically shaped sport steering wheels and a speedometer with 225 mph dial.

Upon customer request the company-own upholstery shop crafts especially exclusive Brabus interiors from a combination of especially soft yet highly durable Brabus Mastik leather and Alcantara.
