The aerodynamic properties are essential for perfect handling stability at the tremendously high speeds the BRABUS E63 can attain. The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop bodywork components made from extremely light yet high strength carbon fiber. The precise-fit components come with a choice of high-gloss or matte carbon fiber
The BRABUS front spoiler lip attaches to the underside of the E 63 production bumper. Thanks to its shape, it reduces aerodynamic front axle lift on the four-door and five-door model. To further enhance the distinctive styling, BRABUS created carbon fiber elements for the large air intakes on the left and right in the front bumper.
The same superlight composite carbon fiber material is used to manufacture the BRABUS rear spoiler and the diffuser for the rear bumper, which provides the perfect backdrop for the two dual design tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust. The fully stainless exhaust lowers the back pressure and features exhaust flaps for an electronically controlled sound management. From the cockpit, the driver is able to choose between the discreet ‘Coming Home’ mode and the open position of the exhaust flaps.
The tailor-made BRABUS wheels with diameters of up to 21 inches play a major part in the thrilling looks of the BRABUS 700. By being manufactured using a hi-tech forging process, these wheels offer a perfect combination of lightweight design and maximum strength. They come in three designs, BRABUS Monoblock F, R or Y “Platinum Edition”. The E-Class receives an aggressive fitment of 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 in back. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires of sizes 265/30 ZR 21 at the front and 305/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.
Sedan or Wagon: BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 700 engine tuning makes the new Mercedes E 63 S 4MATIC+ a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The BRABUS power unit engineers used state-of-the-art test bench technology and extensive test drives on racetracks and public roads to develop a performance kit that boosts the power output of the turbocharged 4.0-liter from standard 612 HP to 700 HP. Peak torque grows simultaneously from 627 to 701 lb-ft.
In harmonious concert with the nine-speed sports transmission, an E 63 S 4MATIC+ sedan with the BRABUS PowerXtra B40 – 700 performance upgrade accelerates from rest to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds. The top speed of both body styles is 186 mph. Already under development is a BRABUS Vmax Unit, which will further increase the top speed.
BRABUS’s tuning program includes the opportunity to add an exquisite BRABUS fine leather interior package. The interior appointments are tailored to customer specifications from a combination of especially soft and breathable Mastik leather and Alcantara. The range of colors is virtually endless and the designers in Bottrop are also able to fulfill any special requests regarding the upholstery design.
The BRABUS 700 presented at the IAA is fitted with a two-tone all-leather interior in black and red. The quilting with pinpoint accuracy on the black seat surfaces immediately catches the eye, while a special detail only becomes apparent upon closer inspection.
Matching the sporty character of the E 63, BRABUS offers aluminum paddle shifters with an especially ergonomic design as well as aluminum pedals and door-lock pins. In addition, the cockpit was fitted with flawlessly finished BRABUS carbon inlays with high-gloss protective coating. Stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, which changes color in sync with the ambience lighting of the interior, round off the new interior design.
