Brabus 850 6.0 BiTurbo

Even though the German tuning company specialized in turning Mercedes cars into beasts already has a program for the E-Class, it looks like there’s always room for more, so Brabus has just announced the Brabus 850 6.0 BiTurbo package based on the E 63 AMG. As you can imagine, the highlight is represented by what’s under the hood, where the standard 5.5-liter V8 got an increased displacement of 5.9-liters and helped by several important upgrades, it now produces a whooping 850-hp and 848 lb-ft (1,1150 Nm) of torque. Using a seven-speed MCT Speedshift automatic transmission, the car is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and it gets incredibly faster when the E 63 AMG comes with the 4Matic four-wheel drive system (just 3.1 seconds). Depending on the tires and the electronic speed limiter settings, the Brabus 850 6.0 BiTurbo has a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

Not that it mattered after reading those numbers, but Brabus also made some significant styling and comfort updates. First of all, many body parts were replaced by carbon fiber ones, such as the front bumper or the rear diffuser, while the aggressive look is emphasized by the 20-inch Monoblock wheels available with Yokohama, Pirelli or Continental tires. The interior has also been customized and offers features such as leather upholstery or carbon fiber inserts.
