The media and prospective buyers have given Mercedes ’ new compact crossover — the GLA-Class — a lot of attention lately. And whenever there’s a new Mercedes like the GLA-Class , one can expect Brabus to start work on a tuning program for it. Like its past projects on other Mercedes vehicles, Brabus understands how to turn up the heat with its aftermarket programs. In this particular case, Brabus not only brings out the GLA-Class’ untapped performance credentials, but does so while looking classy and luxurious.

It’s hard not to love the GLA-Class, especially when an aftermarket company like Brabus gets its hands on it. The strikingly designed exterior that carries distinctive highlights showcases a GLA-Class that looks as comfortable in city streets as it is taking on some light off-road duties.

And don’t forget, Brabus always pays premium importance on giving its programs hefty performance increases and the GLA-Class is no different. Think the GLA-Class’ standard 208 horsepower is enough for Brabus?

Think again, fellas. Think again.

With 550 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque at its disposal, the current Mercedes-Benz E-Class E63 AMG is one of the quickest sedans you can buy nowadays. However, the midsize, German four-door is far from reaching its full potential in its standard guise. The sedan is even more capable when an S badge is added to its name, which comes with an additional 27 horsepower and 59 pound-feet for a total output of 577 horsepower and 590 pound-feet.

Impressed? You should, because you can’t find that many ponies in a BMW M5 and the Audi S6 is even further behind. But don’t hold your breath just yet, the Germans have spawned an even more powerful iteration of the E-Class , one that boasts incredible power, torque and performance figures rarely seen in a midsize sedan.

The Germans we’re talking about do not reside in Stuttgart, where Mercedes-Benz established its headquarters 88 years ago. Rather, they are located in and conceive their beastly creations in Bottrop. In case it doesn’t ring a bell, we’re talking about Brabus , the company behind the most ludicrous Mercedes-based vehicles ever created.

It’s newest product goes by the name of E63 AMG 850 6.0 Biturbo and it’s a sedan that could smoke some of the most powerful muscle cars available right now, including the lightning-fast Shelby GT500 Super Snake .

The Mercedes A45 AMG may be considered as the baby brother of AMG’s full lineup, but there’s nothing small about this model once you add Brabus into the mix. Thanks to the German tuner’s comprehensive aerodynamic and performance upgrades, this A45 AMG is ready to tussle with the big boys.

The program is typical of what you can expect from Brabus. Slap on some new aero components, dress up the interior, and drop a performance upgrade on the engine. It’s the three-step process to turning cars like the A45 AMG into veritable pocket rockets.

But the best part about this program — apart from having Brabus’ seal of approval — is the fact that on its own, the A45 AMG is already a pretty powerful Mercedes , capable of producing in excess of 360 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. This insane power allows the A45 AMG to hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds to go with a top speed of 155 mph.

But even with those impressive numbers, Brabus was still able to add more ponies to the engine, which in a lot of ways proves that when it comes to Mercedes models, nobody does aftermarket programs better than this tuner.

Brabus’ attendance at the 2013 Essen Motor Show will be highlighted by a new program for the Mercedes E63 AMG Wagon . So what if the car doesn’t look as sexy as sexy as other Mercs; when you have the kind of performance upgrade Brabus did to it, you won’t be sweating about the car’s lack of "aesthetic appeal".

Before we get to the performance boost, it’s important to point out that the program also comes with its share of new carbon-fiber body parts, including the front spoiler lip and a diffuser insert. A new sports exhaust system was also installed, this time coming with quad tailpipes. Similarly, new wheels are also part of the program, with customers being given the liberty to choose in sizes up to 20 inches.

Moving inside, the cabin of the E63 AMG Wagon comes with a number of customization options that customers can choose from, including picking their leather trim, Alcantara, aluminum shift paddles, among other things.

Finally, there’s the performance modification. Not content with just a 5.5-liter, V-8 twin-turbo engine, Brabus increased the displacement to a monstrous six liters. From there, the tuning firm installed custom turbos with bigger compressors and bespoke exhaust manifolds to feed the beast a healthy amount of oxygen.

With all these upgrades, the German tuner was able to increase the output of the wagon from 585 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, all the way up to 850 horsepower and 1,069 pound-feet of torque. The latter, though, will be electronically-limited to just 849 pound-feet of torque, to prevent the engine from twisting itself and the transmission right out of the wagon.

With these new performance figures, the E63 AMG Wagon is cable of hitting 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds to go with a top speed of 186 mph with regular tires and 217 mph with high-performance rubber.

It’s hard not to give the Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 the applause it deserves because not doing so would probably result in the vehicle jumping off our page and slapping us silly with those two extra tires.

All joking aside, this vehicle really is one for the ages. Adding German tuner extraordinaire Brabus into the equation, makes this one monster ride that will no doubt leave every other vehicle scampering away and cowering in fear by the vehicle’s mere presence.

At the Frankfurt Auto Show , Brabus will present its program for the G63 AMG 6x6. You had better find a nice place to hide because if this Brabus-tuned G63 AMG 6x6 finds you looking at it funny, it might just decide to give you a knee-buckling stare of its own.

Give credit to Brabus for taking the time to work on a vehicle like this. Chances are, the company enjoyed working on it so much that Brabus engineers likely "tested" the model extensively.

Every major auto show that Brabus goes to, you can expect that at least one of its programs will be dedicated to the billing "fastest-something-in-the-world".

At the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show , that distinction falls on the capable shoulders of the 2013 Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake .

If you thought that station wagons are merely characterized as family cars, Brabus’ 850 6.0 Biturbo program will throw that notion right out of the window with the fury of a car running 800 horsepower worth of output.

That’s what makes this Brabus program for the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake such a mouthful to digest. Sure, it already has the performance credentials to be called a powerful car, but the German tuner takes it to a whole new level normally reserved for exotic coupes.

Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised anymore because Brabus does it over and over again, and the results have been nothing less than spectacular.

Brabus started work on the new-generation Mercedes S-Class shortly after it hit the market. The first upgrade kit that Brabus offered could by applied to the entire lineup, but at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show , we will see the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness edition, which is based on the S63 AMG and developed for buyers looking for a high-end luxury limousine with huge power numbers.

Brabus uses this 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness upgrade to trick the S63 AMG to an extra 250 horsepower, and upgrade the interior with great technology features — mostly from Apple, including the iPad, Mac mini, iPod touch and Apple TV.

Brabus builds the new 850 6.0 Biturbo iBusiness on a special-order basis only, and announced the multimedia system and the other tuning components can be applied to any model in the S-Class lineup.

When you have a car that’s already considered the most powerful sedan in the world, it seems that some people would think that any additional performance upgrade is just overkill.

But don’t tell that to GAD-Motors because it has a habit of doing just that. And no, we don’t belong in that group who believes that more power equates to less appeal. In fact, we skew more toward the opposite train of thought.

The Mercedes C63 AMG -based Brabus Bullit already packs a whopping 720 horsepower under its hood. That’s a lot, by any stretch of the imagination.

But in all its awesomeness, GAD-Motors wants more out of the Bullit and like the enterprising aftermarket company that it is, the tuner went and did just that, fitting the Bullit with an assortment of performance modifications, including upgrades to the turbochargers and intercoolers to go with a new custom air box and new injectors. The result, believe it or not, is a C-Class that packs a whopping 894 horsepower and 1,047 pound-feet of torque.

Considering that the Bullit was capable of hitting 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 225 mph, the GAD-Motors-tuned Bullit is even faster with a 0-to-186 mph time of just 23.5 seconds, compared to 23.8 seconds for the "standard" Bullit.

Now that’s how you add power on top of power.

It didn’t take too long for someone to decide that the new Mercedes S-Class can do much better than the standard version, did it? And who better to do such a tune than Mercedes specialist Brabus? The tuner announced a pretty cool upgrade kit for the S-Class today that increases the sedan’s output to as high as 720 horsepower.

The package can be applied to the S500 and S63 AMG versions, but we are pretty sure more goodies are in the works. For the S500 , Brabus offers the Brabus B50-520 PowerXtra CGI performance kit that adds an extra 65 horsepower. As a result, the S500 now delivers a total of 512 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque. With the extra power in tow, the S500 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and up to a top speed of 186 mph.

For the S63 AMG things get even better. Brabus offers a B63-650 PowerXtra CGI kit that adds another 145 horsepower and increases the total output up to 641 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque.

The most powerful version is the Brabus B63S. It gets two special Brabus turbos, a low-temperature water radiator for the intercooling system, a free-flow exhaust system with metal catalysts and 3-inch-thick downpipes. With all these upgrades, the B63S delivers a total of 720 horsepower at 5,300 rpm and a peak torque of 785 pound-feet available consistently between 1,750 and 5,000 rpm. For the B63S top speed is limited to 202 mph.

German tuner Brabus is taking a different approach with its latest special-edition program for Mercedes : it’s taking it to the east, specifically in China.

Meet the Brabus 60 S Dragon Edition, which is a super-modified Mercedes S 600 that pays homage to the largest auto market in the world. Not all that surprising to see Brabus take this step, considering that a lot of aftermarket companies are taking their talents and high-priced upgrades to China .

So now it’s Brabus’ turn to hit China and to its credit, it served up quite a treat for its customers in the east, decking Mercedes’ flagship luxury sedan with a host of unique upgrades, including a massive engine boost and plenty of golden dragon emblems.

Nothing validates a car being called Dragon Edition more than having a huge emblem of the mythical creature prominently displayed in the front grille of the car.
