Release) 73 hp (72 bhp) plus for the C 63 AMG: High
Performance Made by BRABUS
The worlds most extensive high-performance tuning program for
Mercedes-Benz automobiles comes from BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240
Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777
111, Internet www.brabus.com). High performance made by BRABUS is
now also available for the new C 63 AMG. The BRABUS B63 S
performance kit adds a whopping 73 hp (72 bhp) / 53.7 kW to the
rated power output of the 6.2-liter V8 engine, and propels the car
to a new top speed of 315 km/h (197 mph). In addition, BRABUS offers
a wide range of exclusive accessories from a limited-slip rear
differential to custom-tailored 19-inch wheels complete with
corresponding high-performance tires, from a height-adjustable
coil-over suspension and generously dimensioned high-performance
brakes to exclusive interior options.
The BRABUS engine specialists have developed the B63 S performance
kit specifically for the fast-revving engine of the Mercedes C 63
AMG. It consists of free-flow high-performance metal catalysts,
sport air filters and newly programmed engine electronics with
custom mapping for ignition and injection. Together these components
result in an increase in power output from 457 hp (450 bhp) / 336 kW
to 530 hp (523 bhp) / 390 kW. Peak torque grows from 600 Nm to 650
Nm (442 to 479 lb-ft).
Also part of the conversion is the BRABUS Vmax unit, available in
two versions for top speeds of 300 or 315 km/h (188 or 197 mph).
Acceleration performance also improves with the added power: The
sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened from 4.5 to 4.1
seconds; 200 km/h (124 mph) is reached after 13.1 seconds, down from
14.5 seconds for the production car.
The impressive top speed of the BRABUS-tuned C 63 AMG necessitates
precise modifications to tires, suspension and brakes. The
electronically limited top speed of 315 km/h (197 mph) is possible
thanks to 19-inch high-performance tires from Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.
The tires in size 235/35 ZR 19 in front and in size 265/30 ZR 19 on
the rear axle are mounted on multi-piece BRABUS Monoblock VI, E or S
light-alloy wheels. The front axle features these wheels in size
8.5Jx19, the rear axle in size 9.5Jx19.
The large wheels provide the necessary space for the BRABUS
high-performance brake system. It features vented and grooved 380 x
37 millimeter (15 x 1.45 inches) brake discs and 12-piston aluminum
fixed calipers on the front axle. The rear axle stops with 360 x 28
millimeter (14.2 x 1.1 inches) discs and 6-piston aluminum fixed
calipers. These high-tech brakes can keep even the enormous
performance of a tuned C 63 safely in check at all times.
The height-adjustable BRABUS coil-over suspension features
gas-pressure shocks with ten selectable settings each for bound and
rebound. It offers a sporty yet comfortable ride as well as agile
handling with large safety reserves.
The palette of exclusive BRABUS accessories for the interior of the
C-Class sedan ranges from scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo
to the BRABUS Race shifter.
Upon customer request the company-own upholstery shop creates
especially exclusive BRABUS interiors crafted from a select
combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and
