Brabus Turns E63 Into 900 hp Rocket

A 900 hp E-Class sounds like a great place to start

  • Brabus is the largest Merc tuner in the world

  • 4.0L V8 becomes 4.5L, horsepower climbs 300, and it still meets Euro emissions

Brabus has been turning Mercedes-Benz models into rocketships since 1977, and somehow manages to keep on topping itself year after year. Like this latest E-Class, the E63-based Brabus 900 that makes, you guessed it, 900 hp.

The company calls it a wolf in sheep’s clothing, but, frankly, this is some sort of hybrid super-wolf in regular wolf’s clothing. You’re not hiding that this is started life as a Mercedes-AMG E63 S from anyone by keeping the body kit subtle.

Starting with the standard 4.0L Mercedes-AMG engine, Brabus has transformed it into the 4.5L twin-turbo V8 called the Rocket 900. Bigger pistons, a billet crank, and long-stroke rods are fed by new high pressure fuel pumps, a new intake, and a new stainless exhaust that includes sports cats and new particulate filters. Brabus has also fitted BoostExtra adapters that do little more than making sure you can hear the turbos pop when you lift.

21-inch Brabus Monoblock forged wheels look seriously mean, and while the carbon fibre front spoiler rear diffuser, and grille insert are all quite subtle, they’re not going to be ignored by even the average passerby.

0-100 km/h happens in 2.8 seconds and the top speed is limited to 330 km/h.

Of course Brabus will do just about anything you want to the interior, including making changes at its “in-house Brabus saddlery,” letting you make this Rocket as flashy as you’d like on the inside.
