BRABUS ML 63 Biturbo / 650HP

The German model Mercedes-Benz AMG ML 63 received a tuning package from aftermarket specialists from Brabus. The modified model will have its world debut at the Geneva motor Show in 2009. Under the hood it hides a 6.3-liter V8 engine capable of generating 650 horsepower. This output enables the car to reach a top speed of 310 km/h. To transfer the power to the road the engineers have provided 23-inch wheels. The starting price was established at EUR190.602. The newly developed turbocharger system of the 8-cylinder engine represents high-tech par excellence. Custom exhaust manifolds were developed for both cylinder banks. To avoid negative effects on the system from excessive exhaust-gas pressures the manifolds are designed to use the exhaust from only three of the four cylinders on each side of the engine V for driving the turbochargers. The twin-turbo system further includes a larger intercooler, a dual-flow intake manifold with cast-in Brabus Biturbo logo and high-performance free-flow metal catalysts for efficient exhaust-gas purification. The engine is controlled by specially made engine electronics with precision-matched mapping for ignition and the electronic Brabus boost-pressure control. The price for the high-end B63 Biturbo engine was established at EUR69.800 and offer power on a level previously unknown in the SUV world. Peak torque of the ML 63 Biturbo is 850 Nm, up from standard 630 Nm. The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. That type of performance potential places especially high demands on aerodynamics, tires, suspension and brakes. The aftermarket specialists did not forget about safety and security. The most powerful M-Class ever also features a lot of exclusive interior highlights as well. For example, we will find stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo and also an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel. These two are part of the package prepared for the ML 63.
