Brabus turns 2013 Mercedes 6X6 into ultimate performance beast
Brabus is to AMG what AMG is to Mercedes-Benz. They take high-performance cars and make them insanely fast. Brabus is the ultimate Mercedes tuner. They showed up at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show with one of the most incredible machines on the planet. They took the already exclusive 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 and gave it even more power and performance. It’s called the Brabus B63S-700.
Brabus is a high-end tuner from Germany that specializes in Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG vehicles turning them into supercars. And they have been doing it since 1977 and have satisfied customers in over 106 countries. We can see why they have been so successful after seeing what they did to the G63 AMG 6X6.
They started with the already potent Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 with an AMG twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 with 544 horsepower and 560 lb. ft of rock-climbing torque. They installed the Brabus B63S-700 performance kit on the G63 AMG and tuned the V8 to have even more horsepower and torque. They increased the hp by 156 to 700 horsepower and 708 lb ft of torque. And they can install the kit on any current Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG SUVs.
Brabus performance upgrades
The extensively modified Mercedes-AMG 5.5-liter V8 gets goodies like two special Brabus turbochargers with larger compressor unit, which produce a higher boost pressure. Gold Heat Reflection sheathing for the intake and charge-air pipes further lower the charge-air temperature.
Special high-performance metal catalysts with 75-mm (2.9 in.) downpipes are installed to lower the back pressure. It also gets a sport exhaust system with controlled butterfly valve was custom-developed for the G 63 6×6 AMG and offers both optimized power yield and active control of the exhaust note.
The computer is tweaked and Brabus uses a specially calibrated mapping for the engine management system that coordinates the interaction of the high-performance engine components. The B63S-700 even complies with current global emission laws and the stringent EURO V emission standards.
Brabus B63S-700 is big and fast
And the big massive 8,322 pound Brabus-equipped 6X6 is incredibly fast. The 700 horsepower heavyweight can sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.4 seconds. That’s as fast as some high-performance sports cars. The massive heavy-duty off-road tires the 6×6 is equipped with, limits the top speed to 160 km/h (100 mph).
The Brabus B63S-700 also comes with exterior upgrades with front spoilers, carbon fiber hood scoop, black Brabus xenon headlights and integrated Brabus logos. Inside, the interior gets special treatments with special Alcantara leather upholstery, aluminum pedals and stainless steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logos.
The Brabus B63S-700 takes the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 and turns it into the ultimate high-performance off-road beast. It just made its worlds debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show and Brabus will upgrade any current Mercedes-Benz 63 AMG SUVs.
