Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo based on Mercedes E 63 AMG packs 838bhp

Brabus is well known for their high-power engine conversion for different Mercedes-AMG models.

Their latest project is based on the E 63 AMG saloon and is called Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo.

The 6.0 in the name is a hint that the twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 engine has been bored to increase the displacement to 5.9-litres (5,912cc) and 850 lets everyone know the engine produces an impressive 850 PS (838bhp) and 1,150Nm of torque.

Other under the skin updates include billet crankshaft, forged billet pistons, billet piston rods, optimized cylinder heads, new intake manifold, upgraded turbochargers, a high-performance exhaust system and an optimized ECU.

The engine is linked to a modified seven-speed MCT SPEEDSHIFT transmission, enabling the rear-wheel drive version to accelerate from 00-62mph in 3.7 seconds or 3.1 seconds when equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Top speed is up to 217mph.

Visual updates include carbon fibre body kit featuring front lip spoiler, a sporty rear diffuser, along with 20-inch Monoblock alloy wheels wrapped with Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama tyres.

Interior is updated with fine leather, aluminium shift paddles with a highly ergonomic design and BRABUS RACE pedals.
