We’d like to formally congratulate Brabus on being the first tuning manufacturer to graduate from the school of Top Gear Maths with a double first. And it’s all thanks to the mental B63S.
Brabus, being diligent tuning nomads, looked at the G63 6x6 and thought, “There’s something’s not quite right here. We need more… um, what’s the word I’m looking for Hans?”, “Power?”, “Yes Hans! That’s it. We need more power!”. So they fitted the 5.5-litre V8 with special Brabus turbochargers and larger compressor units producing a higher boost pressure and a total of 690 bhp and raising the torque by 108lb ft. This goes through all six wheels to propel the four tonne beast to sixty in 7.4 seconds. We sincerely doff our hats to you Brabus, keep up the good work.
*Hans may or may not work for Brabus.
