The next in line to receive a Brabus 800 conversion is the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63S Coupé which has been provided with conclusive upgrades to the powertrain and aerodynamics in order to broaden its intimidation factor on the streets.
Bearing the twin-turbocharged 4,0-litre V8 at the helm, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupé boasts a standard power output of 450 kW and 850 N.m of torque with 16 kW available on demand via the EQ Boost mild-hybrid system. With the Brabus 800 package, this figure is increased to 588 kW and 1 000 N.m of torque which is sent to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission which provides the performance SUV with a 0-100 km/h time of 3,4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h.
Included in this package is a pair of Brabus special turbochargers with larger compressor unit (roughly 52 mm in diameter) and modified core assemblies with reinforced axial bearings. This is joined by the firm’s PowerXtra control module.
For additional presence from the powertrain, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupé has been kitted out with a quad stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system and actively controlled valves offering an active sound management system including sport and coming home function.
Revisions to the chassis include a set of 23-inch Black Platinum monoblock Y forged wheels mated to a set of Continental SportContact 6 tyres. At the customer’s request, compounds from Pirelli or Yokohama are available as well. This is joined by a suspension module which brings the SUV closer to the ground.
Giving the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupé a more intimidating look is the exposed carbon exterior design package provided by the Brabus 800 kit. This includes a front spoiler and mesh grille which the brand claims will reduce front-axle lift at high speeds for improved handling and stability. At the rear sits a diffuser, fitted between two pairs of carbon tailpipes. For improved airflow, optimised air inlets have been applied to the sides of the front bumper.
