2009 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG-based Brabus B63 S
Brabus, one of the most revered Mercedes’ tuners, has revealed its new tuning program for the 2009 Mercedes Benz C 63 AMG sport sedan.
Based upon MB’s top seller, the AMG-tuned car already has enough oomph to drive you nuts of sheer driving pleasure. However, Brabus somehow managed to turn this street-legal monster into a real rocket on wheels.
Well, the Brabus B63 S is still not as good as the last-year’s C-Class-based Brabus Bullit super-sedan, but the car is only 0.2 seconds slower in accelerating from zero to 100km/h and its top speed is limited by impressive 315km/h, which is still better than that of the original C63 AMG.
The increase in top speed and acceleration is achieved courtesy of Brabus’ engine tuning program.
The car sports a retuned ECU and got its standard catalytic converters replaced with high-flow units. As a result, the Brabus B63 S features a 73hp increase in power and 50Nm (37lb-ft) increase in available torque, featuring 530hp and 650Nm (479lb-ft) respectively.
To tame all this raw power, Brabus equips the car with a set of performance brakes with six-piston brake calipers, custom 19-inch wheels, height-adjustable coil-over suspension and Pirelli or Yokohama tires.
Of course, there is also an extensive list of interior modifications, including lots of Brabus-branded accessories and new leather trim.
