Mercedes AMG GT 4-Door from Brabus gets 800 horsepower

Posted on

Brabus tends to do some bonkers things with Mercedes, and now the tuner company has a version of the AMG GT 4-door. It is based on the AMG GT 63 S 4Matic and is simply called the Brabus 800. The name comes from the amount of horsepower that comes from the 4.0-liter V8 engine with a double turbo. In Brabus form, the AMG GT 4-door makes 800 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque. That's an increase of 161 hp and 74 pound-foot torque over the standard car. Brabus says it will reduce the 0-62mph time to just 2.9 seconds – the car will go 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds directly from Mercedes.

The extra power comes thanks to two new Brabus turbochargers and a recalibration of the ECU. Brabus says the extra power is safe, and tested testing on the right track and on the road to be sure. Mercedes & # 39; nine-speed automatic transmission still does the shifting, bringing you to 196 mph before the electronic limiter stops the fun. An optional Brabus stainless steel exhaust is available to enhance the soundtrack.

Brabus throws the book to the car at the latest. Carbon fiber is the main theme. A new Brabus front spoiler reduces the front axle lift at high speeds. There is a new carbon diffuser insert on the rear fascia to frame the exhaust pipes, which are also wrapped in carbon fiber. Next, carbon fiber inserts on the rear bumper try to accentuate the shape behind it. Brabus logos are scattered throughout the car, the most obvious being the huge "B" where the big three-pointed star goes.

New forged, monoblock wheels from Brabus are also debuting on this car. It is a staggered setup with 21-inch wheels in the front and 22-inch rollers in the rear. Brabus says the wheels improve the already good handling of the AMG GT 4-Door. The wide Pirelli rubber with a width of 275 is at the front, while the absurdly wide 335-wide rubber is right at the back. If you want even more aggressive handling, the Brabus Airmatic Sport unit connects to your car and lowers the ride by about an inch with the air suspension.

Brabus does not include a price, but we are going to guess that it is extremely expensive. The AMG GT 63 S 4-door starts at $ 163,000, so expect to pay a lot more than that for the Brabus 800.
