It was only a matter of time, wasn’t it? Yes, the folks over at Brabus have revealed their take on the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S 4Matic+, boosting the four-door model’s peak outputs to a whopping 588 kW and 1 000 N.m.

That’s enough, says the tuner, for a sprint to three figures in just 2,9 seconds (three-tenths quicker than standard) and an unchanged electronically limited top speed of 315 km/h.

The flagship variant in the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé range has had its twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 uprated thanks to the fitment of the Brabus PowerXtra B40S-800 performance kit. Two new high-performance turbochargers (with a larger compressor unit and modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearing) produce a maximum boost pressure of 1,6 bar, with the result being an extra 118 kW and 100 N.m.

A new stainless sports exhaust has also been fitted to the model the firm calls the Brabus 800, offering a variable soundtrack thanks to its actively controlled flaps. Titanium/carbon tailpipes (each with a diameter of 90 mm) have also been added.

The naked-carbon theme continues with various aerodynamic components scattered across the body, while Brabus Monoblock Z "Platinum Edition" alloys (21- and 22-inch sizes) have also been fitted.

Inside, you’ll find a mix of perforated black leather with highlights in white leather and Alcantara. Brabus has also thrown in stainless-steel scuff plates (each complete with a backlit Brabus logo that matches the ambient interior lighting) as well as alloy pedals.
