Mercedes-AMG S63 BRABUS 930

The hybrid drive comprising a BRABUS V8 twin-turbo internal combustion engine and an electric motor produces a system output of 684 kW / 930 hp (917 bhp) and a peak system torque of 1,510 Nm (1,114 lb-ft). It catapults the BRABUS 930 into a new dimension of the world of luxury sedans!

Based on the new Mercedes-AMG S 63 E PERFORMANCE, the engineers and designers of BRABUS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone +49 / (0) 2041 / 777‑0, online created an ultra-exclusive four-door car that accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 290 km/h (180 mph).

Sporty and elegant BRABUS exposed-carbon components lend the new luxury liner a particularly striking, sporty appearance.  What is more: they also optimize the aerodynamics. This new supercar from the BRABUS Luxury Mobility Manufaktur in Bottrop for the first time showcases the new 22-inch BRABUS Monoblock ZM “PLATINUM EDITION” wheels.

The exquisite BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior combining the finest, elaborately quilted leather with a Dinamica headliner and sporty carbon elements was created in the BRABUS upholstery shop by true masters of their craft.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the BRABUS 930 hybrid supercar pictured here is 405,000 euros (export price in Germany excluding 19 percent VAT).

With the hybrid drive in the BRABUS 930, the German luxury manufacture once more demonstrates its exceptional position in the automotive high-performance sector. As the model name reveals in traditional BRABUS style, the system output of this combination of turbocharged eight-cylinder engine and electric motor is 684 kW / 930 hp (917 bhp). Equally outstanding is the peak system torque of 1,510 Nm (1,114 lb-ft).

The BRABUS 930 eight-cylinder internal combustion engine with two BRABUS high-performance turbochargers produces 544 kW / 740 hp (730 bhp) of peak power and 980 Nm (723 lb-ft) of torque. In order to combine this engine harmoniously with the hybrid drive’s electric motor, which puts out 140 kW / 190 hp (188 bhp), the BRABUS power unit engineers and electronics specialists thoroughly modified the electronic engine controls. Extensive tests on stationary engine test benches and state-of-the-art AWD chassis dynamometers as well as complex test drives on racetracks, test tracks and public roads were conducted for calibration purposes.

The resulting performance on the road is usually the exclusive domain of true sports cars. Despite a curb weight of about 2.6 metric tons (5,730 lbs.), the all-wheel-drive BRABUS 930 accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 290 km/h (180 mph).

The matching acoustic accompaniment is provided by the stainless BRABUS sports exhaust system with actively controlled butterfly valves. The ultra-luxury liner can be driven either in the subtle “Coming Home” mode or in the “Sport” position. Depending on the selected driving mode, the ICE in the latter case produces a particularly powerful BRABUS V8 exhaust note. Visually the BRABUS exhaust system compels with its four 76-mm titanium/carbon tailpipes framed by an exposed-carbon diffuser.

Of course, BRABUS remains true to its philosophy of combining high performance and flawless durability also in this hybrid drive. This is underscored by the German company’s three-year or 100,000-km/62,000-mile warranty (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS exclusively uses MOTUL lubricants.

Entirely in keeping with the “1-Second-Wow” motto, the new BRABUS 930 features a range of aerodynamic-enhancement components with sporty and elegant styling. The BRABUS front spoiler with raised side flaps not only strengthens the looks of the face of the luxury liner, the fine-tuning in the wind tunnel also effects a reduction in front-axle lift. This results in further optimized directional stability at high speeds.

The BRABUS attachments for the side air intakes in the front bumper route the air even more purposefully to the radiators and front brakes. The BRABUS radiator grille with exposed-carbon ram-air intakes on the left and right optimizes the engine’s air supply.

The BRABUS exposed-carbon diffuser with tailor-made cutouts for the tailpipes of the BRABUS sports exhaust system and the subtle rear spoiler harmoniously round off the hallmark BRABUS styling at the rear of the luxury sedan.

The thrilling BRABUS looks naturally also require tailor-made wheels. The new BRABUS Monoblock ZM design celebrates its world premiere on the BRABUS 930. The production of these “PLATINUM EDITION” hi-tech rims uses sophisticated forging and CNC machining processes. The new styling with concave wheel spider compels with a combination of large disc design painted black in the center of the wheel surrounded by 20 delicate spokes with polished surfaces. The sporty look is completed by a lockable hub cap with centerlock styling.

In order to fill out the wheel wells of the luxury liner optimally, BRABUS chose rims of size 9Jx22 for the front axle and size 10.5Jx22 for the rear axle. The matching high-performance tires of sizes 265/35 ZR 22 at the front and 295/30 ZR 22 on the rear axle are supplied by BRABUS technology partners Continental, Hankook or YOKOHAMA.

Depending on the selected driving mode, the BRABUS SportXtra suspension module lowers the ride of the supercar by up to ten millimeters (0.4 in).

Luxury and individuality in their purest form also dominate in the interior of the BRABUS 930. The BRABUS MASTERPIECE interior pictured here was crafted from particularly soft and breathable back leather in the BRABUS upholstery shop to match the outer skin of the supercar. It is complemented by a headliner upholstered with Dinamica microfiber.

The tremendous love of detail invested in this work is demonstrated not least by the seat surfaces, which feature shell-shaped quilting applied with pinpoint precision. The side bolsters of the seats evoke the founding year of BRABUS with their “Heritage” brand pattern formed by embossed “77” logos. The noble origin of this supercar is also illustrated by the black BRABUS logo on the steering wheel.

The “Shadow Gray” coating of a host of cockpit elements and the BRABUS Signature carbon components with high-gloss surface sealant on the dashboard and center console add striking touches in the interior of this supercar. Aluminum BRABUS pedals and scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, which changes color in sync with the ambient interior lighting, underscore the sporty and elegant character of the new BRABUS hybrid supercar.

Owners of a current Mercedes-AMG S 63 can have their car refined with the BRABUS components presented here, such as the performance upgrade, the carbon aerodynamic-enhancement concept, the Monoblock wheels and the exclusive interior options, which include exquisite quilting patterns, in stages or all at once.
