Brabus’ team of designers and engineers rose to the challenge of transforming this new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe into an SUV coupe that takes the top spot when it comes to performance. A turbocharged V8 engine sits under the hood of the new BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe.
With a displacement of 6 liters, the engine has been rated at 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) and 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) of torque. What results is a powerful engine that can launch a car to 100 km/h or 62 mph in a span of just 3.8 seconds from a standstill.
This is also thanks to the SUV’s lightweight design, as the vehicle weighs slightly more than 2,350 kilograms (5,180 pounds). The electronic limiter on the engine, however, keeps the car at just 320 km per hour or 200 mph for its top speed.
While some could be disappointed by this, the limit is necessary in order to keep the strain on the tires within acceptable levels. The SUV is made of tailor-made components. Its aerodynamic components are made from lightweight, clear-coated carbon. It also has 23-inch king sized rims, which are also customized for the BRABUS.
Inside the car, one can find Alcantara and leather (which is available in various colors) adorning the interior upholstery of the car.
The GLE 63 also features the AIRMATIC air suspension system. Through a specialized control module, drivers can enhance the car’s aerodynamic profile by keeping the center of gravity closer to the ground. The system gives them the option of lowering the SUV’s ride height by roughly 35 millimeters or 1.4 inches.
