The Mercedes-Benz C63 S Estate is the most powerful luxury compact wagon in the world, but if the stock output of the vehicle’s 503 horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 is too tame for your tastes then you need to look no further than the new Brabus 650 C63 S Estate.
Apart from AMG itself, Brabus is the worlds most famous purveyor of tuned Mercedes-Benz vehicles. It tends to take things a step further than Mercedes’ own AMG sub-brand and the 650 C63 S sticks to the usual Brabus script. An engine tune has bestowed the turbocharged V8 with an extra 140 horsepower and bumped torque by 88 lb-ft for a total of 641 horsepower and 604 lb-ft. This has shortened the 0-62 mph sprint from 4.1 seconds to 3.8 and moved the top speed from 180 mph to 199 mph.
Exterior add-ons include a carbon fiber front bumper, rear diffuser, spoiler, side skirts and mirror caps, black trim and Brabus wheels and badges. Brabus’ show car pictured here is also painted in an eye-widening shade of green and features contrasting black racing stripes.
Brabus has yet to announce pricing for its tuning program for the C63 S Estate.
