Starting with the regular 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine, Brabus’ 850 6.0 Biturbo program sees the cylinder bores taken out to 99 mm before the fitment of reworked cylinder heads, forged pistons, billet connecting rods and a billet crankshaft takes place. A pair of larger turbochargers along with a new stainless steel exhaust with adjustable butterfly valve also help to achieve 625 kW (850 hp) and a limited torque figure of 1,150 Nm – up from 410 kW (557 hp) and 720 Nm.
With that power being transferred to the road via a modified AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission, this high-powered E-Class enjoys a limited top speed of 300 km/h/186 mph (350 km/h/217 mph on high performance tyres) and a 0-100 km/h time of 3.7 seconds (4MATIC 3.1 s).
Visually, Brabus adds a carbon fibre front spoiler and rear apron with finned diffuser section. There’s also a choice of the company’s Monoblock VI, F and R alloy wheels in a 20-inch diameter. Moving to the cabin, Brabus can reupholster the interior to suit any specific requirements, using materials including leather Alcantara, wood and carbon fibre, along with aluminum components such as pedals, door pins, longer shift paddles and illuminated sill plates.
