Brabus has unveiled its new 850 Shooting Brake 6.0 Biturbo 4MATIC, which is based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake. The new 850 Shooting Brake is powered by a twin-turbo 5.9-liter V8 engine equipped with forged pistons, a billet crankshaft, a larger air filter box, an optimized ECU and a stainless steel sports exhaust system – allowing the powerplant to provide up to 850 hp (625 kW) of output and an electronically limited 1,150 Nm (848 lb-ft) of torque, enabling the wagon to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds.
This dynamism earned the 850 Shooting Brake the distinction as the "world’s most powerful street-legal all-wheel-drive wagon." The vehicle’s designers installed an aerodynamic body kit that includes a carbon fiber front bumper, a revised grille and ventilated front fenders.
The 850 Shooting Brake also features a carbon fiber rear diffuser and 20-inch alloy wheels fitted with high-performance tires from Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA. Customers could also order a bespoke interior with premium leather or Alcantara upholstery, carbon fiber or wood trim, illuminated sill plates, alloy pedals and aluminum accents.
At these speeds, proficient aerodynamic qualities are significant. Therefore, the carbon-fiber front fascia was enhanced particularly for the BRABUS ROCKET 800 with a best speed in excess of 370 km/h (230 mph), which was adjusted to suit both body styles of the CLS 63. The fascia was improved in the wind tunnel, lessening negative lift on the front axle while reducing drag simultaneously. The fascia likewise incorporates the entire radiator frame. The air slots incorporated over the radiator grille route extra fresh air to the new intake complex.
The carbon-fiber design components in the front fenders are likewise part of the lively dynamic look of the five-door vehicle. The BRABUS rocker panels with clear-coated carbon-fiber embeds and incorporated LED entrance lights relax the airstream at the sides of the vehicle.
The rear of the complete lifestyle wagon is enhanced with a clear-covered carbon-fiber BRABUS diffuser with custom-made cut outs for the double tailpipes of the high-performance exhaust system.
High tech and design additionally go into a flawless interaction in the wheels of the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo. Thanks to cutting-edge forging innovation, the BRABUS Monoblock R "Platinum Edition" wheels lessen unsprang masses to the lowest point possible. In the meantime, they have an exceptional and ingenious design with two sets of five double-spokes alternatingly cleaned and painted anthracite gray, arranged in two plains.
Of course, powerful handling doesn't fall short either: the size 9Jx20 front wheels with size 255/30 ZR 20 tires give outstanding grip as do the size 295/25 ZR 20 tires on size 10.5Jx20 wheels on the rear axle. The ideal high-performance tires are provided by BRABUS innovation partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.
