BRABUS have done some work on the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S to produce the BRABUS 600 Compact SUV.
Like the name suggests, the new BRABUS now comes with 600hp and 800Nm of torque, representing a 90hp increase in power from the standard GLC 63 S AMG. This power figure allows the new SUV to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds, while its top speed is limited to 300km/h.
The BRABUS 600 Compact SUV still makes use of a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine like the GLC 63 S AMG, but the extra power comes from an upgrade in the engine’s control module – called the BRABUS PowerXtra B40 600. Peak torque is available from as low as 1,750rpm to 4,500rpm.
The exterior of the car comes with ‘naked-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components’, along with forged wheels ranging from 19 to 22 inches in diameter. The interior comes treated with new combinations of leather, alcantara, and aluminium (available on the steering wheel paddle shifters).
There’s also a new sports stainless steel exhaust system, with electronically-controlled flaps to alter the volume of the exhaust. In “Coming Home” mode, the exhaust is at its quietest, but when the flaps are opened, a full-on race car-like growl is emitted.
For handling, the BRABUS now comes with an updated AIRMATIC air suspension system, which lowers the ride height by 30mm – giving it a sportier stance and improved driving dynamics.
The BRABUS 600 Compact SUV can be had in SUV or coupe form, and can be bought new from BRABUS. Alternatively, if you already have a GLC 63 S AMG, you can transform it into a BRABUS 600 in stages or all at once.
