Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness revealed

Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness
Following on from its package for the new Mercedes S-Class, Bottrop tuning specialist Brabus has released details of the mammoth 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness ahead of Frankfurt.

Starting with the 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine from the E 63 AMG, Brabus increases the cylinder bores to 99 mm before fitting reworked cylinder heads, forged pistons, billet connecting rods and billet crankshaft. A pair of larger turbochargers along with a new stainless steel exhaust with adjustable butterfly valve help to achieve 625 kW (850 hp) and a limited torque figure of 1,150 Nm. With that power being transferred to the road via a modified AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission, this S-Class enjoys a 0-100 km/h time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). Sensibly, a Brembo-developed carbon ceramic brake upgrade, using 380 x 34 mm front discs and six-piston calipers, has also been fitted.

Visually there’s a plastic aero package with carbon fibre elements, which comprises of a front fascia with larger intakes and lip spoiler, fender gills, side skirts, a trunk lid spoiler and diffuser section for the rear bumper with apertures for the quadruple tailpipes. A suspension module lowers the ride height by 15 mm, while the company’s Monoblock VI, F and R alloys can be specified in sizes ranging from 19 to 21-inches, with its brand new Monoblock G Platinum Edition forged wheels – also debuting in Frankfurt – available in a 22-inch diameter.

Moving past the illuminated sill plates, the cabin has been reupholstered in fine leather, and also features Brabus’ tech-filled iBusiness multimedia system. The on-board goodies use a roof-mounted 15.2-inch colour TFT screen as a central display; they include an iPad mini that can also control all functions of the car’s COMAND system and is connected to a trunk-mounted Mac mini computer via the InCar-Hotspot, which also offers an internet connection with a speed of up to 7.2 megabits per second. An iPod touch is there to supply the music, while the factory screens in the headrests have also been retained. Obviously.
