Although the 640 hp and 900 Nm in the stock Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic+ is more than enough for that family dinner outing, you probably need a bit more on track days. Which is why Brabus has come up with an upgrade.
As with most of the Brabus mods, the visual upgrade here is rather tasteful. Besides a full-black finish, there are naked carbon aerodynamic elements which make the package look delicious.
The carbon diffuser at the rear is more pronounced compared to the stock one. The titanium embellishers of the Brabus sport exhaust system are painted in black to match the outer skin of the car, while the tailpipes are covered in carbon. Rounding off the exterior looks are Brabus Monoblock Z Platinum Edition wheels, measuring 21-inch at front and 22-inch at the rear.
Interiors too get tasteful Brabus branding on the steering wheel, seats, pedals, floor mats and even on the door locks. The seats are upholstered in perforated black leather with highlights in white leather and white contrast stitching. The side bolsters get Alcantara inserts. Stainless steel scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo lights up in colors matching the ambient interior lighting.
The 4.0 V8 gets Brabus high-performance turbochargers with a larger compressor unit, producing a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar. The ECU gets a new mapping via plug-and-play Brabus PowerXtra auxiliary control unit, resulting in an output of 800 hp at 6600 rpm and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm at 3600 rpm.
The 9-speed transmission sends power to all four wheels via 4Matic+ AWD system. The four-door coupe is claimed to sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and can reach a top speed of 315 km/h (limited). The backpressure reducing exhaust system has active flaps which can make the V8 subtle in “Coming Home” mode, or roar in the “Sport” mode.
Buyers can also add Brabus Airmatic Sport plug-and-play module to the air suspension, which lowers the ride height by about 25 mm in “Comfort“ and “Sport” drive modes.
