Mercedes S-Class is pure luxury and power


As if the regular ol’ S-Class wasn’t enough to dream about, Brabus has now taken the Mercedes vehicle and made it the “world’s fastest and most powerful luxury sedan.” Packing 730 horsepower under the hood, the Brabus S can shoot from 0-60mph in a mere 4.0 seconds, and get up to 120mph in just 11.9 seconds.

They’ve certainly embraced the old adage that “there’s no replacement for displacement”, adding a special crankshaft with longer stroke, forged pistons with a larger diameter, and an increased cylinder bore. This takes the stock 5.5-liter engine and transforms it into a huge 6.3-liter monster.

The Biturbo V12 engine is mated with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The torque curve peaks at 2100 rpm, maxing out at a mere 974 lbs-ft. This car is electronically limited to a 340 km/h (211mph) top speed, though based on the numbers, it’s clear the Brabus S is capable of more.

Other upgrades include a more efficient intercooling system, larger turbochargers, a stainless steel exhaust with four pipes, 20- and 21-inch Brabus Monoblock light-alloy wheels, and a high performance brake system featuring 12-piston aluminium fixed callipers.
