Brabus based on the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 S makes its debut with an 800 hp 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine.
Productive Mercedes Tuner Brabus is currently on the right track. The company recently launched its Brabus 800 package for AMG E63 S sedan and station wagon. Now the Bottrop-based tuning brand Mercs has subjected its flagship SUV to a similar treatment. Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 is the latest model in the Brabus product portfolio.
High-riding models are one of the best-selling body types on the market right now, and there is great demand for super SUVs, crossovers, and pickups. Brabus 800 GLS 63 S is probably the sportiest avatar from the nameplate so far. The styling of the car also helps to underline its sporty atmosphere. The SUV has a murdered, completely black paint job and rides on Brabus Monoblock M “Platinum Edition” 23-inch alloy wheels.
The rims are glazed in Shadow Chrome and have a completely black polished finish that corresponds to the paintwork of the SUV. The alloys are wrapped in high-performance 295/35 tires from Continental. The tuner has swapped Merc’s Tristar emblem with the Brabus Double B logo and the exterior of the SUV is also adorned with an illuminated Brabus emblem. The front section has a blackened carbon grille, which is contrasted by the company’s red signature stripes.
The grille sits on a carbon ram air inlet and a front spoiler, which is also made of carbon fiber. The carbon treatment continues at the rear and we find a carbon rear diffuser that houses the tips of the flap-controlled exhaust system from Brabus. Almost every surface of the interior is wrapped in Brabus fine leather and accents made of carbon fiber. The interior upgrade also includes black velor mats and aluminum pedal pads.
Brabus has also retuned the engine so that this three-row SUV can meet the performance standards that have made the German lathe operator famous. The company achieved this by installing the BRABUS PowerXtra B40S-800 upgrade, which, according to the tuner, adds 188 hp to the total output.
According to the company, the newly tuned engine now has a maximum output of 800 hp and around 738 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to all four corners, and Brabus claims this luxury SUV can hit the 100 km / h mark from a standstill in just 3.8 seconds.
