While it’s true that nowadays you can look at even the quickest Mercedes-AMG saloon models and argue that they’ll simply get obliterated to 60 mph by something like a Tesla Model S, we all know that there’s more to performance than just 0-60 times or 1/4 mile times.
It’s about grunt, agility, aesthetics and of course noise. We’re definitely going to miss internal combustion engines when carmakers are going to start replicating twin-turbo V8 growls through some EV’s speakers.
Anyway, speaking of twin-turbo V8 engines, we’re here to talk about the Brabus-tuned Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door model, which was introduced last summer in this configuration. Now though, you can check it out in more detail thanks to this 94-image mega gallery.
The German tuner opted to install two new turbochargers while also fiddling with the ECU for a total of 800 PS (789 HP) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. As a result, this modded AMG GT 63 S 4-door will nail 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds – 0.3 seconds faster than the stock variant. Top speed meanwhile is electronically limited to 196 mph (315 km/h).
Other additions include the custom stainless steel exhaust system with active flaps and titanium/carbon tailpipes.
The visuals are pretty impressive too thanks to the naked-carbon components, available in high-gloss or matte: apron, intakes, diffuser, spoiler lip and so on. Then you’ve got the 21/22-inch wheels (front/rear), wearing 275/35 and 335/25 tires from either Pirelli, Continental or Yokohama.
As for the interior, there’s the Alcantara steering wheel, decorative stitching, stainless steel inserts and the tuner’s logos spread throughout the cabin.
