Brabus will introduce this powerful 700 hp Mercedes-AMG E63 S in Frankfurt

Article by Christian A., on September 11, 2017

Brabus has a new tuning program for the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S and that is the additional 88 horsepower (65 kilowatts) it can give the E63 S. After countless test drives on racetracks and streets, the company has developed a plug-and-play auxiliary control unit that upgrades the electronic engine control unit with new mapping for ignition and injection, thus boosting pressure.

With Brabus’ new upgrade, the 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine can now produce a total of 700 horsepower (515 kilowatts) and now 701 pound-feet (900 Newton-metres) of torque, from only 627 pound feet (850 Newton-metres) before. It comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and 4Matic system that channels power to all four wheels. After the upgrade, the E63 sedan can now accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in only 3.2 seconds, while the heavier station wagon can do it in 3.3 seconds.

The Brabus 700 is the perfect solution for those who thought that the 603 horsepower E63 S is underpowered.

To manage the sound, all E63 S trims have a fully stainless exhaust system with electronically controlled flaps. The model also features a “Coming Home” mode that activates a friendlier and more civilized exhaust system when being driven in urban areas.

Moreover, Brabus completely developed the car’s Mercedes-AMG E63 S aerodynamic body kit with the use of extremely light but durable carbon fiber, which can be finished with high-gloss or matte protective coating. Brabus has optimized it into a wind tunnel that consists of front spoiler lip, front bumper with large air intakes, and rear spoiler and diffuser. The E63 will be riding on 21-inch wheels with a wide range of designs they can choose from.

As for the interior, Brabus promised to offer a “virtually endless” range of colours for the cabin, with endless customization options. There will be details of Alcantara, as well as new aluminum gear shift paddles, pedals and door lock pins. In the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, Brabus will display an example that will have a two-tone, black-red all-leather interior, which you can also see in the images the tuner released. Expect to see the S65 Cabriolet-based Rocket 900 alongside the Brabus 700 at this month’s largest auto show.

You can get this Mercedes-AMG E63 S Brabus 700 as a whole, but those who already have an E63 can have their car tuned to give it the same upgrades. What are your thoughts on this Brabus 700? Do you think the E63 needed that level of power boost?

Press Release

World premiere at the IAA 2017 BRABUS 700

Exclusive performance upgrade for the Mercedes E 63
515 kW / 700 HP and 950 Nm of torque for the twin-turbo V8
Carbon aerodynamics kit, forged wheels and exclusive interior

An output of 515 kW / 700 HP (691 bhp), a peak torque of 950 Nm (701 lb-ft), naked carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components, 21-inch hi-tech forged wheels and an exclusive interior: In a world premiere at the IAA 2017, BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone +49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax +49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) presents an exclusive performance upgrade for all new Mercedes E 63 models.
Sedan or Wagon: BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 700 engine tuning makes the new Mercedes E 63 S 4MATIC+ even more of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The BRABUS power unit engineers used state-of-the-art test bench technology and extensive test drives on racetracks and public roads to develop a performance kit that boosts the power output of the turbocharged 4.0-liter (243 cu in) V8 engine by 64.7 kW / 88 HP (87 bhp).
The plug-and-play auxiliary control unit upgrades the electronic engine control unit with new mapping for injection and ignition, and increases the boost pressure. As a result, the rated output jumps from standard 450 kW / 612 HP to 515 kW / 700 HP (603 to 691 bhp) at a low 6,100 rpm. Peak torque grows simultaneously from 850 to 950 Nm (627 to 701 lb-ft), on tap already at 3,500 rpm. BRABUS recommends high-performance motor oil from technology partner MOTUL.

In harmonious concert with the nine-speed sports transmission, an E 63 S 4MATIC+ sedan with BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 700 performance upgrade accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. The slightly heavier wagon takes just a tenth of a second longer for the same exercise. The top speed of both body styles is 300 km/h (186 mph). Already under development is a BRABUS Vmax Unit, which will further increase the top speed.
Sound and performance are the strong suits of the BRABUS sport exhaust system for all E 63 variants. The fully stainless exhaust lowers the back pressure and features exhaust flaps for an electronically controlled sound management. From the cockpit, the driver is able to choose between the discreet ‘Coming Home’ mode and the open position of the exhaust flaps, which coax a particularly powerful exhaust note from the twin-turbo V8.

The aerodynamic properties are essential for perfect handling stability at the tremendously high speeds a vehicle as powerful as this is able to attain. The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop bodywork components made from extremely light yet high strength carbon fiber. The precise-fit components come with a choice of high-gloss or matte protective coating.
The BRABUS front spoiler lip attaches to the underside of the E 63 production bumper. Thanks to its shape, it reduces aerodynamic front axle lift on the four-door and five-door model. The even more distinctive face also comes courtesy of the BRABUS surrounds for the large air intakes on the left and right in the front bumper.
The same superlight composite material is used to manufacture the BRABUS rear spoiler and the diffuser insert for the rear bumper, which provides the perfect backdrop for the two dual design tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust.

Of course, the tailor-made BRABUS wheels with diameters of up to 21 inches, safety-certified for all E 63 models, play a major part in the thrilling looks of the BRABUS 700. The most exclusive variant features BRABUS Monoblock “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels in various designs. By being manufactured using a hi-tech forging process, these wheels offer a perfect combination of lightweight design and maximum strength. They come in three designs, BRABUS Monoblock F, R or Y “Platinum Edition,” and are mounted on the E-Class in the combination 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 in back. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires of sizes 265/30 ZR 21 at the front and 305/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.
The ultra-low-profile tires lend the sedan and wagon an extravagant appearance and give it even more agile handling. The perfect complement is a BRABUS suspension module that lowers the E 63 by about 20 millimeters (0.8 in).

BRABUS also offers its customers unlimited customization when it comes to the interior design. The company upholstery shop creates exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior appointments from the finest leather and Alcantara. The range of colors is virtually endless and the designers in Bottrop are also able to fulfill any special requests regarding the upholstery design. The BRABUS 700 presented at the IAA is fitted with a two-tone all-leather interior in black and red showing great love of detail: The quilting with pinpoint accuracy on the black seat surfaces immediately catches the eye, while a special detail only becomes apparent upon closer inspection: through the perforation of the seat surfaces the eyes discover a layer of red leather incorporated under the black leather.
Matching the sporty character of the E 63, BRABUS offers aluminum paddle shifters with an especially ergonomic design as well as aluminum pedals and door-lock pins. In addition, the cockpit was fitted with flawlessly finished BRABUS carbon inlays with high-gloss protective coating. Stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, which changes color in sync with the ambience lighting of the interior, round off the new interior design.

The BRABUS 700 can be ordered as a complete car. Alternatively, BRABUS will convert any current Mercedes E 63 to this level in stages or all at once.
Fuel economy, CO2 emissions and efficiency class:
BRABUS 700 based on the Mercedes E 63: city 11.7 l/100 km, highway 7.6 l/100 km, combined: 9.1 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 207 g/km, efficiency class D.
