Mercedes-Benz’s new GLE 63 S Coupe is already a potent vehicle, capable of producing 577 hp from its 5.5-liter biturbo V8. But, that wasn’t enough for Brabus, who upped the car’s power all the way to 700 hp.
Revealed in a press release from Brabus and set to be at the Dubai International Motor Show 2015, the 700 Coupe takes advantage of the new B63S-700 performance kit, which adds an additional 115 hp to the SUV’s specs. This kit includes special gold heat reflection sheathing, new turbochargers, intake charge-air pipes and more.
When at a dead stop, this quick SUV will rocket to 62 mph from a standstill in just 4 seconds. Aside from the lightning-quick acceleration, the top speed has been improved up to 186 mph.
As with most current Brabus models, the 700 Coupe includes an exhaust that offers a “Coming Home” option. When selected, this option will shush the exhaust for a more subtle sound. When not selected, the sporty sounds of the exhaust can be heard all around.
Along with the technical upgrades, there are plenty of visual additions, including the carbon fiber exterior pieces, Monoblock Y “Platinum Edition” forged wheels and the lowered ride height, thanks to the Airmatic air suspension.
Inside is a lush cabin filled with leather, which can be customized to the customer’s liking. For the example being shown at the Dubai International Motor Show, Brabus chose an azure-blue Mastik leather for the interior.
While the GLE has just hit the roads, it wasn’t too soon for Brabus to take the SUV to the next level.
