What Happens When You Make the Fastest and Most Powerful Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 Coupe in the World? Here’s the Answer!
BRABUS Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 Coupe has many things to show, but mainly it can literally brag about being world's most powerful and fastest SUV. It was revealed last week at the Geneva Motor Show, wearing new shoes specifically tailored for it: the Continental CS6 coming in 23-inches. This was the missing pivotal point that the tuners just had to add. In addition, the GLE has one-off BRABUS appearance with sportier stance, improved power output and exclusive custom interior. Here are the details.
The only thing lacking in this Mercedes-Benz were its standard wheels. BRABUS found an option with the production of the in-house made Monoblock Y "PLATINUM EDITION" high-tech forged alloys. Then it was the time to pick the appropriate size, which in this case was 10Jx23 at the front and 12Jx23 on the rear axle. The matching high-performance Continental tires were a must, and they come in sizes 295/35 R 23 and 335/30 R 23 for the front and rear, respectively.
The Fastest and Most Powerful GLE?
Yes, by far this is the most powerful and the fastest GLE currently on the market. The project is actually named BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe, giving a hint of the horsepower of its engine, which by the way is a turbocharged V8 with a displacement increase to six liters.
It has a power output of 850 hp (625 kW) and a peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) were achieve via engine conversion. This helps the supercar accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph).
For the power rating also take responsibility the aerodynamic-enhancement components made from naked carbon, the larger down pipes with a diameter of 75 millimeters (3.0 in) and a newly designed exhaust system. This exhaust system also produces active sound management with the throaty "Sport" mode and a subtle whisper in "Coming Home" mode. Because the announced performance needs a closer to the ground car, BRABUS added a special control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension, which lowers the ride height of the SUV by about 35 millimeters.
The in-house made high-tech carbon bodywork components include the front spoiler lip attached to the lower section of the bumper, the air intakes at the sides of the front bumper, sides with integrated LED side markers, carbon rear bumper with side air outlets and a diffuser insert, the ceramic-coated designer tailpipes marked with the BRABUS logo and tuner's BRABUS roof spoiler. All chrome parts of the bodywork were painted in the color of the vehicle.

The cabin of the vehicle is upholstered with the finest Cuoio-colored leather, Alcantara, etc. It can be seen literally everywhere: from the dashboard and seats to the door panels and the headliner. The extraordinary finish includes braided sections on the seats and door panels as well as light brown piping create custom highlights; while the headliner is made from chocolate-colored Alcantara. In addition, the BRABUS interior carbon and wood trim sets also contributes for the best in-car driving experience.
