Brabus 850 Convertible S63 AMG's color mix is as impressive as its power and speed

Article by Christian A., on March 29, 2017

Having one of the fastest convertibles in the world may not be enough if it doesn’t come with the right color motif. This could also be what the guys at Brabus had been thinking of when they came up with this Mercedes-AMG S63-based Cabrio.

First off, the Brabus 850 we have right here is not only packed with incredible hp but it also comes with an equally powerful color scheme—imagine a completely white body with contrasting red interior to match. But that’s not all. the four-seater Mercedes-AMG cabrio is quicker than the latest Bentley Continental Supersports, thanks to its Brabus-tuned engine under the hood.

At any rate, Brabus has not only upgraded the AMG S63’s 5.5-liter stock engine but it also did some revisions on its ECU, exhaust manifolds and compressor units to make it one of the world’s most powerful and fastest convertibles.

The result? The Brabus 850 is powered by a 6.0 liter liter biturbo that is tuned to deliver up to 838hp (850PS) and 1,069 lb-ft (1,450Nm) of torque. When this engine is paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission and is backed up by Mercedes’ all-wheel drive system, the 850 convertible could sprint from zero to 62 miles per hour (100km/h) in only 3.5 seconds before hitting a maximum of 217mph (350km/h).

Likewise, this Cabrio’s carbon fiber aerodynamics kit suits the new paint scheme that the German auto tuner has come up with. This includes the new mirror caps, bootlid spoiler, rear diffuser, intake surrounds and front spoiler. Using a new suspension module, Brabus has adjusted the ride height much lower at 0.6 inches/15mm.

To further enhance its already aggressive packaging, the Brabus 850 is sitting on a new set of 255/35 ZR 21 (front) and 295/30 ZR 21 (rear) ultra-low profile tires. Alternatively, customers can also get the 22-inch rims measuring 255/30 ZR 22 and 295/25 ZR 22 corresponding the front and rear.

For the interior, Brabus is also offering a fully upgraded upholstery along with a number of options starting with a custom speedometer, a wide selection of carbon and aluminum trims as well as the special Brabus scuff plates with illuminating logo design.

Lastly, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio can be availed as a complete package or as an upgrade for those who already have the Mercedes-AMG S63 Convertible. As for the color scheme, each model varies depending on the customer’s specification.

All the same, it does makes sense why Brabus came up with this model in a stunning white and red combination. In the end, we all learned how to make use of colors that match its powerful performance.
