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.
