Is This 700-HP SUV By Brabus The Craziest Thing On The Road?

The tuning company has created another monster.

Brabus isn’t shy when it comes to taking vehicles from Mercedes-Benz and transforming them. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe is a pretty insane vehicle in stock from, but Brabus decided to take things up a notch with a new B63S 700 performance kit. The tuning company took the SUV’s 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that’s good for 577 hp and pumped it up for a total of 690 hp. That’s crazy, but Brabus . Brabus has also gone to town on the SUVs exterior for a more menacing look. We don't like SUVs, but we like this.

What’s even more impressive than the horsepower figure is the torque rating, which has been increased from 561 lb-ft to a whopping 708 lb-ft. This may not be the most powerful GLE out there, but with a zero to 62 mph time of 4.0 seconds it’s blisteringly quick. To make sure that things don’t get too crazy, Brabus has limited the SUV’s top speed to 186 mph.To get this kind of performance out of the vehicle, Brabus added two new turbos with larger compressor units, a new exhaust system, along with new mapping for the engine’s injection and ignition. To aid the vehicle in handling, there’s a custom control module that lowers the SUV’s ride height by 1.4 inches. This performance kit arrived just in time for the Dubai Motor Show.
