Car tuning company Brabus revealed their new 8550 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio at last weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, stealing the spotlight from the main event. Based on the Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet, Brabus claims their upgraded Cabrio is “the world’s fastest and most powerful four-seat cabriolet.”
The car tuners are all business when it comes to their work, and they’ve upped the ante on the S62 Cabrio. The standard version’s 577 hp and 644 lb-ft of toque have been jacked to a meaty 850 hp and 1,069 lb-ft. To accomplish the gaudy numbers, Brabus started by increasing the displacement of the engine from 5.5-liters to 6.0. In turn, a new Brabus crankshaft and re-machined cylinder heads had to be added. Just taking a glimpse under the hood will blow your mind.Brabus’ Cabrio packs the power and roaring sound in a car that doesn’t look like it can race, but can really move. The four-seater also comes with a three-year, 62,000 mile warranty.
