BRABUS Introduces World’s Fastest AWD Coupe


German tuning house BRABUS has shown off its Mercedes S-Class Coupe, the BRABUS 850 6.0 Bi-Turbo ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

At a top speed of 350 km/h, this is the worlds fastest and most powerful all-wheel-drive coupe. It’s powered by an eight cylinder twin-turbo engine from the S63, thoroughly revised in the BRABUS engine shop of course. As a result of the extensive modifications, the BRABUS 850 6.0 Bi-Turbo engine delivers a peak power output of 625 kW at a low 5,400 rpm.

Power is channeled to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission, which can also be shifted manually with the ‘BRABUS RACE’ aluminium paddle shifters on the steering wheel. A rear-wheel drive variant will also be made available.

The exclusive two-door car will catapult to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds. Due to tire limitations the top speed is restricted electronically to 350 km/h. Aerodynamic components such as carbon fibre elements were developed and tested by BRABUS designers in a wind tunnel.

In typical BRABUS style, the exquisite craftsmanship continues inside to the luxury interior, through to the suspension lowering module and into BRABUS’ forged mono-block wheels.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 Bi-Turbo Coupe will be available as a complete vehicle and can also be built on the basis of any existing current Mercedes S 63 Coupe. Parts can be sourced from the Australian distributor for BRABUS, Sharp Performance.
