Brabus Bullit Coupe 800 revealed
One of the many cars that tuners have brought to this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show was the Brabus Bullit Coupe 800. As you’ve probably figured this by now, the tuning program is for the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe. In fact, it is more than just a tuning job since Brabus has ditched the original V8 6.3-liter engine found in the standard model.
They’ve replaced it with a massive V12 Biturbo power unit that is capable of producing 800 hp (588 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,047 lb.-ft (1,420 Nm). According to Brabus, the Bullit Coupe 800 needs only 3.7 seconds to do the 0-62 mph sprint, on its way to a maximum speed of 230 mph (370 km/h). It needs only 23.8 seconds from start until the odometer reaches 300 km/h.
The body of the C63 AMG Coupe suffered some modifications in order to squeeze in that huge V12 engine which is now linked to a 7-speed automatic gearbox and has a limited slip differential with a 40% locking rate. This powerful coupe features no less than four water-to-air intercoolers and two exhaust manifolds with integrated turbos.
Since the original body of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe was not built for these speeds, the engineers from Brabus have installed a new aerodynamic bodykit that comes with a carbon front spoiler, rear diffuser, side skirts and a boot lid spoiler. The vehicle’s rear apron has four built-in ceramic-plated tailpipes.
The coupe is now riding on 20-inch alloy wheels and features a height-adjustable Bilstein coilover suspension. The stopping power of this impressive Bullit Coupe 800 from Brabus comes from the 15 x 1.45-inch discs with 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers for the front wheels, while at the back it packs 14.2 x 1.1-inch discs that have 6-piston fixed aluminum calipers.
No word at the moment regarding the price tag of the Brabus Bullit Coupe 800, but this tuning program certainly won’t come cheap since it has a V12 engine.
