The Mercedes-AMG E63 based Brabus 700 has made its debut ahead of its arrival at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Brabus 700 will join the previously revealed Brabus 900 Rocket on the German tuning company’s stand in Frankfurt. While not as fast as the aptly named Rocket, the 700 will have more than enough performance on tap from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. Thanks to a new ECU, which has upped the boost and remapped the injection, the engine now makes a robust 691 horsepower and 701 lb-ft of torque – up from 603 hp and 627 lb-ft. Brabus claims a 0-62 mph time of just 3.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h).
Brabus has also applied a number of carbon aero components to the four-door including a front lip spoiler, a large rear diffuser, side skirts and a rear decklid spoiler. Complimenting the aero kit are new 21-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels available in a variety of styles. A better overall stance is afforded by the Brabus suspension module, which lowers the car by about 0.8 inches.
The interior has undergone a transformation as well, adopting Brabus gloss carbon fiber trim, new aluminum pedals and aluminum paddle shifters and aluminum tread plates.
Brabus has yet to announce pricing for its 700 sedan. The company says the package can ordered as a complete car, or applied to an E63 in stages.
