Eight hundred horsepower, a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft), 2.9 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph). The top speed is electronically limited to 315 km/h (196 mph). Striking looks thanks to naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components with sporty styling and hi-tech forged wheels in the new BRABUS Monoblock Z "PLATINUM EDITION" ten-spoke design featuring an unusual combination of 21 and 22-inch diameter rims for the front and rear axle. The BRABUS 800 based on the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ celebrates its world premiere at the Top Marques Monaco 2019.
The four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine of the GT 63 S is uprated by the BRABUS powertrain engineers with the sophisticated BRABUS PowerXtra B40S-800 performance upgrade. The modifications to the engine hardware involve the turbocharging system: Two newly designed BRABUS high-performance turbochargers with larger compressor unit and modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearing produce a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar.
This results in an output increase by 118 kW / 161 hp (158 bhp) and a bump in torque by 100 Nm (74 lb-ft). With a new output of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) at 6,600 rpm and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) at a low 3,600 rpm, the four-door coupe is one of the most powerful of its kind.
The driving performance speaks for itself: From rest, the BRABUS 800 with SPEEDSHIFT nine-speed sports transmission and 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive takes just 2.9 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph). The gears can be shifted automatically or manually with the ergonomic BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The top speed is electronically limited to 315 km/h (196 mph).
The tremendous performance of the BRABUS 800 also places particular demands on the aerodynamics. That is why the BRABUS designers developed equally attractive and aerodynamically efficient naked-carbon components. They were fine-tuned in the wind tunnel and optimize the handling stability at high speeds. The precise-fit BRABUS bodywork components are available with a choice of high-gloss or matte coating.
The face of the GT is given an even more striking profile with the combination of BRABUS front spoiler and front fascia attachments for the large air intakes of the bumper. In addition, the spoiler reduces front-axle lift at high speeds, which further improves the handling stability.
The rear end of the four-door is also made even sportier: The carbon diffuser insert for the rear fascia perfectly frames the four tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust, whose titanium embellishers were painted black to match the outer skin of the show car for Monaco. Naked-carbon panels at the sides of the rear bumper emphasize the striking lines of the vehicle.
Another special area of expertise of BRABUS is exclusive interior refinement. Under the "BRABUS fine leather" label, the company upholstery shop transforms the finest leather and Alcantara into interiors that satisfy even the most individual requests of any customer. There is a virtually endless variety of available colors and upholstery designs. To complete the interior ambiance, BRABUS can fabricate precious-wood or genuine-carbon inlays in a wide range of colors and specifications.
The BRABUS 800 supercar premiering at the Top Marques Monaco 2019 is fitted with exclusive BRABUS fine leather seats covered with perforated black leather and highlighted with white leather elements. The classy interior captivates not only with its color scheme, but also with its precise white decorative topstitching. Alcantara inserts in the seat side bolsters optimize the lateral support when employing a sporty driving style.
