Two world premieres at the Geneva Motor Show 2018: The new BRABUS 800 supercars based on the Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+

BRABUS 800 Coupe based on the Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+

Exclusive high-performance all-wheel-drive coupe with 588 kW / 800 hp, 1,000 Nm of torque and 3.1 seconds to 100 km/h. ights on for the new high-performance all-wheel-drive coupe in a class of its own, Equipped with the new BRABUS performance upgrade, the turbocharged four-liter eight-cylinder puts out 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) of power and produces
a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) at a low 3,600 rpm. In tandem with the all-wheel-drive system, the two-door takes just 3.1 seconds to sprint
from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph). The top speed is limited electronically to 300 km/h (186 mph).
BRABUS refines the new facelift version of the S-Class coupe visually with a newly developed aerodynamics upgrade made from naked carbon, and 21-inch
or 22-inch hi-tech forged wheels.
An exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior lends the new BRABUS 800 Coupe the finishing touches.

The new 4.0-liter twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine of the current S 63 models offers reserves ex-factory that the BRABUS power unit engineers unleash
without compromising the durability.

To achieve the intended 800 horsepower, the forced induction system had to be modified. BRABUS developed special high-performance turbochargers to
achieve a significant increase in power. A modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearings and a larger compressor unit provide a maximum boost
pressure of 1.6 bar.

To match the new hardware, the engineers also modified the engine control unit. To this end, a BRABUS PowerXtra plug-and-play auxiliary control
module is adapted to the CAN data bus. This module provides the engine with new mapping for injection, ignition and boost pressure control, which was
developed in extensive tests on state-of-the-art test benches and on public roads.

After the conversion, the BRABUS 800 engine delivers outstanding performance figures: The peak power of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) is produced at a
low 6,100 rpm. Just as impressive is the peak torque of 1,000 Nm, on tap already at just 3,600 rpm.

The power is transmitted to all four wheels by the 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system and a nine-speed automatic transmission, which can also be shifted
manually with the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel.Technology partner MOTUL supplies the hi-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain of the new BRABUS supercar. The strong sides of the BRABUS sport
exhaust system are sound and performance. It is available for all S 63 variants. The all-stainless system reduces the exhaust backpressure and
features exhaust flaps for an electronically controlled sound management. From the cockpit, the driver can choose between the subtle “Coming Home”
mode and the open position of the exhaust flaps, which coaxes a markedly powerful exhaust note from the twin-turbo V8.BRABUS developed an additional front spoiler lip for the front bumper. It is produced from naked carbon and finished with a high-gloss sealer. As a
result, it lends the two-door some motor racing flair. The thrilling looks are accompanied by aerodynamic efficiency. The new front spoiler reduces
front-axle lift at high speeds, which further optimizes the handling stability. Tailor-made carbon elements also give the large air intakes in the
front bumper a more dynamic design.

The new aerodynamic-enhancement concept for the modified S-Class coupe is rounded off by the BRABUS naked-carbon diffuser with tailor-made cutouts
for the BRABUS sport exhaust system, and the subtle rear spoiler on the trunk lid, which is likewise made from carbon. The designers also developed
carbon covers for the side mirrors and carbon attachments for the side air vents, which highlight the sporty lines even more.

The outstanding traits of the BRABUS Monoblock wheels are thrilling design, highest quality and further enhanced driving dynamics. They are available
for the Mercedes S-Class coupe with diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches.

At the Geneva Motor Show 2018, the new high-performance coupe is on display with two different BRABUS Monoblock wheel designs: The BRABUS Monoblock M
“PLATINUM EDITION” 21-inch forged wheels are also on display for the first time. They combine the effect of tremendous optical size that disc designs
have with ten larger and ten smaller openings calculated to optimize venting of the brakes. They make excellent use of the available space under the
wheel arches in sizes 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 in back. The optimal tires are mounted in the form of Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA
high-performance tires in sizes 255/35 ZR 21 at the front and 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle.

The other side of the vehicle shows off the even larger BRABUS Monoblock G “Platinum Edition” forged wheels. It features 9Jx22 rims with 255/30 ZR 22
tires on the front axle and 10Jx22 wheels with 295/25 ZR 22 tires at the rear. All these wheels use state-of-the-art forging technology, which offers
an optimal blend of maximum strength and lightweight construction.

The BRABUS lowering module, which lowers the ride height of the two-door by about 15 millimeters (.6 in) is specifically calibrated to the
ultra-low-profile tires.
The optionally available BRABUS genuine carbon elements with brilliant or matte sealer and aluminum components such as the BRABUS RACE paddle
shifters, pedals and door pins add decidedly sporty touches to the cockpit. Markedly elegant interior elements comprising noble-wood inlays with many
different grains and surface finishes are available as an alternative.

Scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo whose colors can change matching the ambient lighting in the interior round off the cockpit.

The BRABUS 800 Coupe is available as a complete vehicle or can be built based on any existing current Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+ Coupe


The sporty luxury sedan based on the Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+

Performance upgrade to 588 kW / 800 hp of peak power and 1,000 Nm peak torque, carbon aerodynamics, 21-inch hi-tech forged wheels and tailor-made

BRABUS 800: That is the name of a new and extremely sporty luxury sedan based on the Mercedes S 63 4MATIC+, which BRABUS, the world’s largest
independent automotive refinement specialist, presents at the Geneva Motor Show 2018.
At the heart of the new supercar is the four-liter twin-turbo V8 with BRABUS performance upgrade, which was developed and tested in the engine
development department of BRABUS. The high-performance engine produces 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) of peak power and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft), on tap at 3,000 rpm. In
combination with the 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system, this engine accelerates the exclusive four-door from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.1
To provide a match for the high-performance character of the four-door, the BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop carbon
aerodynamic-enhancement components that not only lend the vehicle an athletic appearance, but also reduce front and rear-axle lift. The BRABUS
“PLATINUM EDITION” Monoblock M 21-inch wheels are also as brand-new as the BRABUS 800.
A BRABUS fine leather all-leather interior finished with consummate craftsmanship rounds off the new sport sedan.

The latest Mercedes S 63 is powered by a twin-turbo V8 with a displacement of 3,982 cc. This engine offers great performance reserves, which the
BRABUS power unit engineers unleash with their latest performance upgrade. To this end, they used their tremendous expertise from more than 40 years
of tuning to develop a custom made performance kit. This conversion comprises two BRABUS high-performance turbochargers with a larger compressor unit
and a modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearings. They produce a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar.

The engine tuning also comprises a plug-and-play BRABUS PowerXtra module, which is connected to the vehicle’s electronic engine control unit and
provides the engine with new mapping for injection and ignition. In addition, this control module also modifies the electronic boost pressure
control. This engine conversion produces an extra 138.4 kW / 188 hp (186 bhp) of power and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) more torque. BRABUS recommends hi-tech
lubricants from technology partner MOTUL.

With an output of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) at 6,700 rpm and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm at 3,600 rpm, the BRABUS 800 accelerates from rest to 100 km/h
(62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds. The standard-spec 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive ensures outstanding traction. The nine-speed automatic transmission changes
gears automatically or can be shifted manually with the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters.

The top speed is 300 km/h (186 mph). A BRABUS Vmax module that will permit even higher speeds is already in development.

Of course, BRABUS backs also this performance upgrade for the S 63 4MATIC+ with the exemplary three-year, 100,000-kilometer / 62,000-mile BRABUS
Tuning Warranty® (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013).

As the ideal complement to the engine tuning or as an attractive upgrade for any standard S 63, BRABUS offers a stainless sport exhaust system with
actively controlled exhaust flaps. The driver can select the different options of the electronic sound management in the cockpit and change the
exhaust note to suit his taste. There is the subtle “Coming Home” mode, which is quieter than the V8 with the production exhaust. The “Sport”
position opens the exhaust flaps in the system. The eight-cylinder then sounds even more thrilling and powerful than in series specification. To
match the paint finish of the show car for the Geneva Motor Show 2018, the dual BRABUS tailpipes on the left and right were also painted black.

In line with the high-performance potential of this luxury sedan, the bodywork was also refined with sporty BRABUS components developed for the
facelift generation of the S 63. The range of naked-carbon parts with high-gloss coating starts with the BRABUS front spoiler lip and the attachments
for the front bumper, which upgrade the production bumper visually. What is more: The fine-tuning of these components in the wind tunnel results in a
reduction in front-axle lift, which at high speeds further optimizes the handling stability. It also routes the cooling air even more precisely to
the radiators and front brakes.

The carbon design elements on the two front fenders give the BRABUS 800 a more athletic appearance as well. The lights of the integrated BRABUS logos
are activated automatically by the Keyless-Go system when the driver approaches the vehicle or by pulling on an inside door handle.

The LEDs on the underside of the BRABUS rocker panels light up at the same time. This underfloor lighting makes it safer to approach the vehicle in
the dark and helps to avoid stepping in a pothole or puddle. The stainless scuff plates with BRABUS 800 logo for all four doors also are backlit –
optionally with colors changing in sync with the ambient lighting of the interior.

At the rear, the BRABUS naked-carbon diffuser with tailor-made cutouts for the BRABUS sport exhaust and the discreet rear spoiler round off the
BRABUS styling concept harmoniously.

Of course, the sporty BRABUS looks also include tailor-made wheels. The new Monoblock M design, which is also introduced on the new BRABUS 800,
celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2018. The hi-tech forged wheel of the exclusive “PLATINUM EDITION” thrills with a combination
of expansive disc design and ten larger and ten smaller openings, which not only break up the surface, but thanks to their sophisticated design also
optimize the venting of the brakes.
On this vehicle, the wheel is shown on one vehicle side in the combination “black-polished.”  The other side sports sporty and elegant BRABUS
Monoblock F forged cross-spoke wheels of the same sizes, 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 in the back. The matching high-performance tires of
sizes 255/35 ZR 21 at the front and 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle come from technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.

Other BRABUS Monoblock wheels can be chosen as an alternative. They are available for the Mercedes S-Class with diameters ranging from 18 to 22
inches. To match the ultra-low-profile tires, BRABUS lowers the suspension by about 15 millimeters (.6 inches) with a special control module. This
further optimizes the driving dynamics.

Another BRABUS domain is exclusive interior design. The company upholstery shop created an extravagant BRABUS fine leather interior for the show car
at the Geneva Motor Show from especially soft and breathable mondial black leather. Blue piping in concert with gray decorative stitching and a
sweeping upholstery design on the seats sewn with pinpoint precision emphasize the sporty and luxurious appearance.

BRABUS genuine-carbon elements in the sporty “Chequered Flag” design with matte surface finish replace the production wood trim. The sporty looks in
the cockpit also include aluminum components such as the BRABUS RACE paddle shifters, pedals and door pins.

The rear compartment features an equally elegant and functional integrated BRABUS Business center console, which houses a retractable table for each
of the individual rear seats.
