So, you gotta have the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG, do you? Brabus – Mercedes’ eponymous collaborator – has released its own version of the 2014 S-Class that is powered by a whopping 730 ponies! The iconic German tuning house has yet again successfully engineered an entire collection of upgrades for the full-sized sedan. As always, the essence of any Brabus beast would have to be the engine, which is offered in three distinct iterations. For the light-hearted, there is the B50S, which adds 65 horsepower to the S550 for a total of 520 hp and 604 pound-feet of torque. For those who are a bit more power-hungry, there’s the B63 which essentially ups the S63 AMG to 650 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, for those who cannot be restrained, the B63S packs a punch of 730 hp and 785 lb-ft of torque to the stealthy sedan. Needless to say, none of these versions are slouches in any way, shape, or form and the aforementioned numbers more than prove this.

Realizing full well that the younger generation of today is eager to take the leap into luxury more readily than their predecessors, automobile manufacturers have learned how to take a dose of their respective luxury formulas and infuse them into much smaller, more nimble packages....
Tesla? You mean the guy who created electricity as we know it? What about him? Oh, he makes cars now? I thought he was dead.
WOW. People who don’t know a thing about cars and automotive news can be so ignorant, can’t they? Fortunately we are there to counterbalance that ignorance!
