Touted as the world’s fastest and most powerful all-wheel drive coupe, the car boasts a heavily modified version of the S63 AMG Coupe’s twin-turbo V8 engine. It comes with a special crankshaft with a longer stroke, an enlarged cylinder bore, and larger forged pistons, which results in an increased displacement – from 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc. Also part of the setup are two Brabus turbochargers with larger compressor units and modified exhaust manifolds. This translates into an output of 850PS (838hp) at 5,400 rpm, and 1,450Nm (1,069lb-ft) of peak torque between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm.
All this power is sent to the four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission and the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, but there’s a rear-wheel drive model available as well. As you’d expect, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is incredibly quick, going from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 9.4 seconds. Its top speed is electronically limited at 217 mph (350 km/h).
In terms of style, the vehicle is a great mix of athleticism and extravagance. Its aggressive aero kit features new bumpers with a carbon fiber spoiler at the front and a carbon fiber diffuser at the rear, in addition to a rear spoiler integrated in the trunk lid. On the inside, however, it’s all about the luxury, with carbon fiber elements and a deep black Alcantara headliner, as well as the soft Mastik leather with copper-colored seams and piping.
We’re looking forward to seeing this model alongside other fantastic cars at the Geneva Motor Show starting next week.
