Specialised Mercedes tuner Brabus have finally got their hands on the AMG GT S, the current flagship of Mercedes’ performance arm.
Destined for the Frankfurt Motor Show next week, The Brabus tuned Mercedes-AMG GT S liberates another 90hp (67kW) and 100Nm from a new engine mapping, bringing total output from the 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 to 600hp (447kW) and 750Nm.
The extra power launches the GT S from rest to 100km/h in just 3.6 seconds, 0.2-second faster than the standard car. Flat out, the Brabus AMG GT S will now hit 325km/h, 15km/h more than before.
Complementing the engine tuning is a new titanium exhaust system, which is 40 per cent lighter than the factory fitted exhaust. Equipped with a controllable flap, the exhaust can be set to “quiet mode” so as to not annoy the neighbours, or left unrestricted for the full V8 soundtrack.
Making visual statement is a full carbon fibre body kit, which also serves to refine the AMG GT S’ aerodynamic attributes. The front spoiler and side skirts are designed to reduce lift, while the rear wing and diffuser keep the rear glued to the tarmac.
The aero parts can be optioned in either glossy or matte finish and implemented in matching body or contrasting colour.
Filing the large wheel fenders of the AMS GT S is a set of forged cross-spoke lightweight wheels measuring 9.5×20 at the front and 11×21 at the rear, wrapped in 275/30 R20 and 305/25 R21 rubbers.
