According to a press release issued by the aftermarket tuner, this new super German sedan, or wagon where it’s available, utilizes a new performance kit. With this new kit, power produced by the turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 is increased by 90 hp and 75 lb-ft of torque, to a total of 600 hp and 591 lb-ft. What does this power, working in cooperation with the seven-speed transmission, get you? A 0-62 mph time of just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.
Included in the upgrade is the BRABUS sport exhaust, which has a switch implemented for “electronically controlled sound management.” The driver can use this switch to go from a quiet and subtle exhaust note, to a powerful, no-holds-barred exhaust note.
As with all BRABUS makeovers, the 600 has a suite of new and aerodynamically-focused body pieces, including a rear diffuser, spoiler lip and more. These components are made from clear-coated carbon fiber, with either a matte or shiny surface seal. Adding to the new appearance are 20-inch “king-sized” BRABUS Monoblock T wheels, in size 8.5Jx20 in the front and 9.5Jx20 in the rear.
Inside, the BRABUS upholstery shop’s capabilities are on full display through a fine leather interior that is made to match the customer’s preference. They also offer wood and carbon trim sets in any desired color.
There is no word on when it will be for sale, but expect to see this car at the IIA 2015, starting on September 17.
