Brabus 800: the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S according to the German tuner
We have seen many masterpieces made by Brabus in recent years. The last was done on the 4-door Mercedes-AMG GT. The famous German tuner has in fact unveiled in the past few hours a completely modified version of the AMG GT 63 S 4Matic simply called Brabus 800.
The name derives from the power supplied by the 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood. In fact, the 4-door AMG GT by Brabus delivers 800 hp and 1000 Nm of maximum torque. This is an increase of 161 hp and 100 nm.
BRABUS 800: THE MERCEDES-AMG GT 63 S
Brabus claims that its Brabus 800 starts from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.9 seconds against the 3.2 seconds used by the original Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic. The extra power comes thanks to the implementation of two new Brabus turbochargers and the recalibration of the engine control unit.
The German tuner claims that the extra power does not cause any problem to the car and he is sure of this as he has conducted several tests on the road and on the track. Mercedes’ 9-speed automatic transmission is still there and allows the driver to bring the car to the maximum speed of 315 km / h before the electronic limiter intervenes.
A Brabus stainless steel exhaust is also available as an option for this special Brabus 800. As for the design, the tuned modified Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S has a lot of carbon fiber.
The new Brabus rear spoiler reduces the lifting of the front axle at high speeds. There is also a new carbon fiber diffuser on the rear band, around the tailpipes also wrapped in carbon fiber. The Brabus logo is scattered everywhere, including on the front to replace the 3-pointed star.
The Mercedes AMG GT 63 S 4Matic also marks the first appearance of new monoblock edges, 21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the rear. The German company claims that these rims significantly improve the handling of the Brabus 800.
The car is fitted with Pirelli tires, 275 in front and 335 in the rear. Unfortunately, Brabus didn’t announce the price but assumed a very high number if we consider the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door to start at $ 163,000.
