The world’s fastest and most powerful all-wheel drive coupe.
The Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe is one of the boldest high-performance luxury coupes on the market. Drivers can even turn things up a notch with the more powerful S 65 AMG Coupe if they so choose. But for those that want the pinnacle of power and speed, there’s the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe – the fastest and most powerful all-wheel drive coupe in the world (according to Brabus).
The basis for the new Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG and its 5.5-liter V-8 engine. Things change rather quickly from there, however. The engine is enlarged and thoroughly modified, carbon fiber bodywork optimizes aerodynamics, a new chassis helps throw down the power, and an exclusive interior adds further refinement.
To start things off, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe saw quite the engine upgrade. The twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V-8 engine was given a new Brabus crankshaft with longer stroke, enlarged cylinder bore, and larger forged pistons that increases displacement to 5,912 cc (6.0 liters). Both cylinder heads were flow optimized while a new Brabus 850 intake module with larger air filter housing and intake cross section gets air from a duct in the hood and carbon fiber air ducts. Brabus Gold heat Reflection wraps the intake and charge air pipes for better insulation. Two new Brabus turbochargers provide a generous amount of boost and replace the factory snails. A full Brabus stainless steel sports exhaust system with new metal catalytic converters and 75 mm downpipes erupt with a powerful note and is controlled via butterfly valves. To finish it all off, a full ECU software remap makes it all work together in harmony.
In the end, the new engine in the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe produces a whopping 850 horsepower (838 bhp) at just 5,400 RPM and 1,069 lb-ft. of torque between 2,500 and 4,500 RPM. That massive torque figure had to be reduced to “only” 848 lb-ft. of torque in the name of long-term reliability (who needs that anyways?). The engine also complies with the current EURO VI emissions standards.
This makes the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe the fastest and most powerful all-wheel drive coupe in the world. Top speed is a whopping 217 mph, which is electronically-limited due to the tires. Acceleration to 62 mph takes only 3.5 seconds while 124 mph is reached in just 9.4 ticks of the clock.
Putting all of that power down to the pavement isn’t an easy task, but the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is up for the challenge thanks to new forged wheels. For the black model making its global debut at the Geneva International Motor Show, a new set of Brabus Monoblock F forged wheels with a special cross-spoke design and Shadow Gold Chrome finish. These forged rollers measure 9.0J x 21 at the front and 10.5J x 21 at the rear with high performance Pirelli, Continental, or YOKOHAMA tires measuring 255/35 ZR21 and 295/30 ZR21 at the front and rear axles, respectively. The Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe can also be fitted with other 21- or 22-inch forged wheels from Brabus with a variety of finishes and widths. The final touch with the new fitment is a Brabus suspension lowering module that is designed for use with the low-profile tires reduces the ride height by 15 mm (0.6 inches).
Helping to control all of that power and speed also is an aerodynamically-optimized carbon fiber body kit that was designed through the use of a wind tunnel. The new Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe wears a carbon fiber front spoiler to reduce lift at the front axle and carbon fiber air intake elements. At the rear, a new carbon fiber diffuser with special exhaust outlets on either side. Above, sits a trunk spoiler to generate downforce at higher speeds and keep that big ‘Benz butt planted. The final touch are new carbon fiber side air intake surrounds.
While much of the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe is designed for pure speed and power, the interior is where you’ll find all of the exclusive luxuries. The entire cabin wears smooth perforated black Mastik leather with copper-colored seams and piping, while the headliner is covered in Alcantara. A total of 219 parts inside were given a coat of Shadow Gold finish to match the Monoblock F wheels. Sporty elements such as glossy carbon fiber elements replace the factory wood inserts, a 250-mph Brabus speedometer faces the driver along with aluminum Brabus Race paddle shifters, foot pedals, and door pins were installed. New illuminated Brabus 850 door sills can paired up with custom-colored ambient lighting to create a warm atmosphere.
The new Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe will make its global debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. Brabus will also offer a rear-wheel drive version of the 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe for those that don’t want traction.
