The Brabus 900 Superblack Can Hit 330kmph

It’s a tuned version of the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63.

Big. Bold. Brawny. These three words loosely sum up the current-gen Mercedes-AMG GLS 63. It has enough of nearly everything to satisfy the fussiest of owners. However, there will always be a niche clientele who’d want a bit more in the package. Brabus is one name that rings to the mind when searching for a recipe, especially one that isn’t offered by Mercedes. And its latest creation – the 900 Superblack – illustrates that fact.

To start with, Brabus garnishes the AMG GLS 63 with a carbon body package. That ropes in a front splitter, front fascia elements, fender add-ons, a rear spoiler and a rear diffuser, all made of carbon. Those panels gel well with the black body colour and the Brabus branding, which can be seen on the front grille, the tailgate and even under the bonnet. A similar, all-black theme is carried indoors with Brabus’ “Seashell Diamond” quilting and perforations as the standout touch. The tuner has also adorned a few pieces with embossed “77” signets, honouring its founding year of 1977. Complementing those are the “Shadow Grey” enhancements on various trim panels, handles, switches, speaker covers and air vents. Lastly, there’s carbon-fibre garnishing on the steering wheel, dashboard, centre console and door panels.

For propulsion, Brabus increased the cubic capacity of Merc’s 4.0-litre V8 to 4.4 litres. For the record, it’s a 4,407cc engine, which the tuner rounds up to 4.5 litres. Strange. The enlarged motor, accompanied by two Brabus turbochargers, puts out 888hp (900ps). Torque? The engine peaks out at 1,250Nm, but that has been electronically pegged at 1,050Nm. Brabus claims a 0-100kmph sprint time of 3.6 seconds and a top speed of up to 330kmph, depending on the selected wheel-tyre combination.

The stainless-steel custom exhaust system, featuring actively controlled valves, comes alive in ‘Sport’ mode but settles down to a “subtle whisper” in ‘Coming Home’ mode. The 900 Superblack dons 24-inch Brabus Monoblock Z “Platinum Edition” forged wheels. And yes, the Brabus Sport Unit for the suspension allows for a ride height adjustment of up to 25mm.

So, how do you like Brabus’ latest creation?
