(from Brabus Press
Release) BRABUS refines the Mercedes ML 63 AMG
456.3 kW / 620 hp, 300 km/h and
spectacular wide-body version
456.3 kW / 620 hp (611
bhp) of power and a peak torque of 820 Nm (604 lb-ft) give it a top
speed of up to 300 km/h (186 mph). The spectacular WIDESTAR
wide-body version in conjunction with forged 23-inch wheels set it
far apart from the masses: BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, 46240 Bottrop,

There is no such thing as enough power and consequently the BRABUS
engine specialists have developed performance tuning for the
5.5-liter V8 Biturbo engine of the latest ML 63 AMG: the B63-620
performance kit. The engine tuning kit is available in various
versions for vehicles with or without AMG performance package. It is
backed by the one-of-a-kind BRABUS tuning warranty of three years,
up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000 miles (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and
Conditions, updated November 2006). BRABUS recommends
high-performance lubricants from technology partner MOTUL.
The tuning involves the integration of a plug-and-play BRABUS
PowerXtra module into the engine electronics. This auxiliary control
unit optimizes power yield as the result of a new mapping for
injection and ignition as well as a moderate increase in boost
The perfect complement to the BRABUS engine tuning for the ML 63 AMG
is a stainless-steel BRABUS sport exhaust system with butterfly
valve. It gives drivers the option of switching between a discreet
and quiet “coming home” mode and a decidedly throaty V8 exhaust note
in “sport” mode at the push of a button. The BRABUS sport exhaust
features two ceramics-coated design exhaust embellishers on either
side for an even more striking rear appearance.
ML 63 models delivered ex-factory without performance package gain
an extra 69 kW / 95 hp (93 bhp) with BRABUS B63-620 tuning; the
performance version adds 45 kW / 63 hp (60 bhp). Both models produce
a peak torque of 820 Nm (604 lb-ft), available between 2,000 and
The BRABUS-tuned SUV accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.5
seconds. The BRABUS Vmax unit that is part of the performance kit
can be programmed to allow an electronically limited top speed of
280 or 300 km/h (174 or 186 mph).
At these speeds aerodynamic properties are crucial. To account for
this fact, the BRABUS designers have developed an additional spoiler
for the production fascia. It is made from clear-coated carbon fiber
and reduces lift on the front axle. A rear spoiler is available as
its aerodynamic counterpart.
The front of the refined ML 63 AMG adds more appeal with striking
attachments for the side air inlets. A centrally placed diffuser
made from clear-coated carbon fiber adds even more sporty character
to the rear.
The BRABUS WIDESTAR fender flares on the front and rear axle add six
centimeters (2.5 inches) to the width of the top-of-the-line
M-Class. These flares give the vehicle a more bullish stance that is
rounded out with the attachment components for the sides of the
front and rear fasciae. But that’s not all: The WIDESTAR fender
flares also make room for extremely wide BRABUS king-size tires with
diameters of up to 23 inches.
The largest possible tire/wheel combination for the BRABUS WIDESTAR
version features size 10Jx22 wheels. Customers can choose from five
wheel designs, Monoblock VI, E, G "Platinum Edition", Q and R. The
most exclusive option is the BRABUS Monoblock G "Platinum Edition"
forged wheel. Thanks to cutting-edge manufacturing technology it
offers an unparalleled combination of lightweight design and maximum
strength. The corresponding high-performance tires in size 295/30 ZR
22 are supplied by BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli
A special BRABUS control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension of
the ML 63 AMG lowers the ride height of the high-performance SUV.
This not only gives the all-wheel-drive car an even more striking
appearance, the lowered center of gravity also further improves
BRABUS is one of the top addresses in the world for exclusive
automotive interior design. The company upholstery shop uses the
finest leather and Alcantara to craft custom-tailored interiors for
the ML 63 AMG to suit each owner’s personal taste.
Wood and genuine carbon-fiber trim sets in any desired color and
with a variety of surface finishes are available to round out the
ensemble. A speedometer with 360-km/h dial (225 mph) is also part of
the product program.
