Brabus is out to showcase what its 'B63S-700' performance kit can do for Mercedes-Benz's niche model – the G63 AMG 6x6. On display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Brabus B63S-700 6x6 was made to be even more potent and exclusive. The G63 AMG 6x6 is already quite impressive, with standard versions capable of delivering 536bhp and 561bhp, distributed to all six wheels through an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission.
However, Brabus was able to raise this figure to 691bhp and 708lb ft. These major improvements of 155bhp and 147lb ft, are owed to the installation of a couple of new turbochargers, a modified ECU, high-flow catalytic convertors, a sports exhaust system and the extra heat shielding for the intake system.
Brabus also tweaked the six-wheeled 3775kg powerhouse to be able to accelerate from a standstill to 62mph in 7.4sec. But then, its top speed remains at 99mph. The speed was limited to protect the 37-inch off-road tires instead of the powertrain. In addition, the B63S-700 6x6 features an exhaust valve system that provides 'Sport' and 'Coming Home' modes.
This means that the driver can get access to 'optimised' power and opt for either exhaust noise or relative silence. The B63S-700 is made more striking and purposeful as Brabus gave it a front spoiler, a special grille with an integrated Brabus logo, black xenon headlights, a series of carbonfibre parts and special finishes.
The interior received updates as well. It now features finely-stitched leather and Alcantara. Leather is also used on both the floor and roof lining, giving it a truly top-class feel. Additional improvements include stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logos, and special alloy shift paddles. It has some subtle aluminium highlights too.
G63 AMG x6 also received a visual tweak from Brabus, with the modifications boosting the already imposing face of the 6x6. These tweaks include an attachment to the production fascia of the 6x6 -- a Brabus front spoiler edges – as complemented by an extra molding fitted below the special radiator grille with integrated Brabus logo. Also redefining the looks of the G63 are the Brabus carbon-fiber hood scoop and the mirror-polished Brabus underride guard, which offers a stunning contrast to the vehicle’s black finish.
Brabus also gave the 6x6 with its striking Brabus lighting concept a set of dark-tinted LED lights integrated into the front spoiler edges. This detail dynamically complements the black Brabus xenon headlights as well as daytime running lights with integrated turn-signal function – both of which are available in all models of the 6x6.
On the other hand, Brabus has replaced the turn signals located on top of the fenders with clear-coated matt carbon-fiber covers, matching the matt carbon-fiber structure on the hood as well as the carbon-fiber shells for the exterior mirrors.
Inside, the cabin of the 6x6 was specified with Brabus’ meticulously crafted fine leather that combines fiery red and black leather and Alcantara.
