If having all the semi-autonomous and connectivity tech money can buy isn’t a priority for you, spending around $160,000 on something like this used Brabus E63 850 Biturbo might just be the right thing to do.
As opposed to waiting for the all-new Mercedes-AMG E63 to come out, that is. Or you could just buy a brand new S63 for that type of money, yet none of those AMG-powered saloons will get remotely close to competing with an 850 PS W212 E63.
It just so happens that this exact car is for sale at Brabus, priced at 600,000 AED, which is a little over the $160,000 we mentioned earlier. And while the all-new E63 might not cost as much once it hits dealerships, it’s quite possible it could match that number the second you start ticking all of those options boxes.
Since we’re committed to comparing this Brabus 850 to the all-new E63, we should mention that the latter churns out 612 PS and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque in ‘S’ guise, allowing it to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds before maxing out at 300 km/h (186 mph).
Well, the Brabus 850 on the other hand will need just 3.1 seconds to hit the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark and has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), which means that a hypothetical friend with a Lamborghini Aventador will not be able to outrun you, especially not with 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) of torque at your disposal.
