When AMG Is Not Enough

The Brabus S V12 S Biturbo is what you buy when the 612HP Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG simply won’t do. The Brabus S V12 S Biturbo engine is a prime example for the old adage that nothing can replace displacement except more displacement. A special crankshaft with longer stroke, forged pistons with a larger diameter and an increased cylinder bore result in a displacement increase from standard 5.5 to 6.3 liters. In addition the inlet and outlet ports of both cylinder heads are optimized for improved mixture flow. Four special camshafts also contribute to that same effect.

Brabus one ups Mercedes-Benz by boosting the engine to 730 hp at 5,100 RPM. What’s even more amazing is the peak torque of 973 lbs-ft at 2,100 rpm. In the car peak torque is limited electronically to “only” 811 lbs-ft. What does this mean on the road? It means you can pass any car you want right now.

This extraordinary performance makes the Brabus S V12 S Biturbo into not just the most powerful but also the fastest luxury sedan in the world: 0 – 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, 124 mph after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph. How fast can it go without the limiter? Who knows?

You would expect a car of this stature would cost a lot and Brabus does not disappoint. If you think the $180,000 Mercedes ask for their S65 AMG is expensive, you better be sitting down when Brabus prevents you a bill for their fully loaded S Class – $350,000. Order yours here.
