I do not know why anyone would really need such a car, but the engineers from Brabus probably have thought it might worth it, while they have to win another trophy. It is the main rival of the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Audi RS6 break, the two models being involved in a real battle of the titans, while the differences are very small: E63 AMG offers up to 585 hp while the RS6 goes to 579 hp. To have a luxurious break close to 600 hp is a real achievement, but Brabus, as usual, can’t get pleased with little things that are just … too little. So they turned a Mercedes supercar E63 AMG in a true supersport, that looks like a useful day by day car: its name is Brabus 850 V8 Biturbo.
The V8 model has been extensively modified, increasing the engine displacement from 5.5 liters to 6.0 liters, while the twin-turbo system received new turbochargers designed by Brabus and the exhaust system was also changed. As a result, the maximum power now reaches 850 hp, while the maximum torque has a value almost double if we are referring to an E63 AMG, the amount of 1,450 Nm is achieved between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm. However, the gearbox may fail because of such values, so that maximum torque is electronically limited to ” just” 1,150 Nm. The car is reaching from 0-100 km / h with 0.6 seconds better than the E63 AMG version and it is needing just 3.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 300 km / h to protect the tires, mounted on special 20 inch rims. Not bad for a station wagon with a luggage compartment that ranges from 700 to nearly 2,000 liters!
Regarding price, there is still no information available at this time, but we would not be surprised if it enters the area of half a million euros – which would mean about 3 times more than a “ standard “ E63 AMG version.
