For almost two decades the four generations of the Brabus E V12 ruled the segment of the superfast sedans. What once started with the implantation of a Brabus 6.9 V12 increased-displacement engine producing 375 kW / 509 horsepower (503 bhp) into the body of a Mercedes 500 E of the W 124 model series, and culminated in the Brabus E V12 "one of ten" super car with 588 kW / 800 horsepower (790 bhp) of power and a top speed in excess of 370 km/h (230 mph) presented at the 2009 IAA, now finds its even more powerful continuation.

The Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo, based on the current Mercedes E 63, uses eight instead of twelve cylinders. To this end the motor engineers from Brabus developed a new high-performance engine with an increased displacement of six liters (361 cu. in.).

Like its predecessors, the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo, which of course is also available as a wagon, comes with an efficient Brabus aerodynamic-enhancement kit, tailor-made Brabus Monoblock wheels and an exclusive Brabus fine leather interior.

The eight-cylinder engine of the E 63 and its two turbochargers provide the perfect breeding ground for an enormous power boost. To this end the Brabus motor engineers developed a displacement increase from standard 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc (333 to 361 cu. in.). Simply increasing the bore of the eight cylinders in the Brabus high-tech engine-building shop to 99 millimeters (3.89 in.) would be insufficient. The precision-balanced billet crankshaft with a stroke of 96 mm (3.78) instead of the standard 90.5 millimeters (3.56 in.) in concert with special forged billet pistons and billet piston rods completes the displacement increase. In addition, both cylinder heads are optimized for mixture flow.

The turbocharging system of the eight-cylinder four-valve engine was upgraded accordingly: the air intake system and the two Brabus turbochargers with larger compressor unit and special manifold were all developed from the ground up. The Brabus 850 intake module with an air filter box with larger cross section was developed to supply the adequate amount of air. An air duct integrated into the hood is also part of this special intake manifold as is the larger intake pipe, which is positioned directly exposed to the relative wind in the front bumper to provide air to the engine.

Low charge-air temperatures are beneficial to power yield and engine temperatures, and consequently Brabus equips this engine with intake and charge-air pipes wrapped with special and immediately identifiable "Gold Heat Reflection" sheathing.

Free-flow metal catalysts and a Brabus high-performance exhaust system with controlled butterfly valve are installed on the exhaust side. This includes active control of the exhaust note from the driver's seat. At the push of a button drivers can choose between a quiet "Coming Home" mode and an earthy, full-blooded V8 sound when the "Sport" position is selected. With its dual ceramic-coated design tailpipes on either side with cast Brabus logo this exhaust system is also a visual treat.

The Brabus electronics engineers used their immense know-how and state-of-the-art engine test rigs to recalibrate the engine management system to ensure the perfect interaction of all high-performance components and consequently an optimal power output. The result is not only tremendous performance, but also compliance with stringent EURO VI emissions standards. The high-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain are supplied by technology partner MOTUL.
