Brabus used its own forged pistons to achieve increased displacement. The pistons connect to a billet Brabus crankshaft via high-performance rods, and the shop says the stroke was lengthened to 100mm with the increased displacement.
Mercedes-AMG claims a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds for the G63, but many testers have found much quicker times in the high threes. Brabus promises to beat those times with a run of just 3.7 seconds from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) and a top speed of 174 mph. Unsurprisingly, the Superblack has a prodigious thirst, returning just 13.8 mpg in the city, 18.2 mpg on the highway, and 16.3 mpg combined.
Though the Superblack isn’t Brabus’ most insane creation, it still delivers immense power, which requires loads of oxygen. To feed the 900 Superblack’s V8, engineers devised a custom ram-air intake where two intakes are integrated into the lower grilles on either side of the front fascia. Fuel, the other half of the combustion equation, comes via high-pressure pumps. A custom Brabus exhaust with three-inch downpipes completes the upgrades.
