Brabus 800 brings power to the family at Geneva 2018
Any father in need of an 800 hp saloon, you’re in for a treat
The Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC comes with 563 hp (420 kW) and leaves really quickly: in 3.5 seconds. The extra-spicy E 63 S is ready to go with 603 hp (450 kW) and a 3.4-second 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint. Enough to make a Porsche Panamera cry.
And then comes the Brabus 800 whose power rating makes the standard AMG E look dull. As the name suggests, the car packs a whopping 789 hp (588 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. Naturally, the 0-62 mph acceleration time has dropped considerably: the Brabus 800 will reach the 100 km/h mark after just three seconds. Three seconds! Top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (300 km/h) but Brabus promises it will take care of this inconvenience soon.
Now for the really good news: it’s available in both body styles (saloon and estate).
If you want to build your own 800, there’s plenty to choose from: rims as big as 21 inches, exhaust system with ceramic coating, naked carbon body parts and much more.
