World premiere at the Geneva Auto Show 2017 BRABUS 650 Cabrio

Of course, all BRABUS performance upgrades and components are backed by the one-of-a-kind three-year, 100,000-kilometer/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends Motul high-performance lubricants.

The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop tailor-made aerodynamic-enhancement components specifically for the two-door C 63 models, convertible and coupe. The naked carbon versions come with either a matte or a high-gloss surface finish. The BRABUS front spoiler lends the face of the two-door car a more dynamic profile. At the same time, the aerodynamics benefit from the sophisticated styling: The spoiler with raised outer edges minimizes lift on the front axle at high speeds and thereby further improves the handling stability.

Other sophisticated BRABUS details are the carbon surrounds for the side air intakes in the front bumper. The carbon attachments on both front fenders put even more emphasis on the sporty appearance of the two-door car.

To give the sides sportier looks, the BRABUS designers developed rocker panels with raised air deflector elements in front of the rear wheel arches and naked carbon covers for the two-door mirrors.

An aerodynamic update was also designed for the rear end. The carbon diffuser precisely frames the two dual tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust. The covers and flaps for the side air vents in the rear bumper are also inspired by motorsports.

The appearance and the handling of the C 63 S can be refined further with tailor-made BRABUS 20-inch wheels and a sport suspension. At the Geneva Auto Show 2017, the Cabriolet is presented with BRABUS Monoblock R “Platinum Edition” wheels of sizes 9Jx20 on the front axle and 10.5Jx20 at the rear. The hi-tech forged wheels with double spokes were painted black for the show car and offer an optimal blend of lightweight construction and strength. The matching high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and 285/30 ZR 20 on the rear axle are supplied by technology partners Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama.

To make the handling of the high-performance convertible even more agile and even safer, the BRABUS suspension engineers and test drivers developed special Coilover sport springs with adjustable ride height. They are combined with the standard RIDE CONTROL shocks with adaptive damping. This allows drivers to choose not only from three different damper settings but also to tailor the ride height of the vehicle to their personal preferences. The adjustment range for the ride-height lowering is between 20 and 40 millimetres (0.8 to 1.6 in), which can be dialled in separately on the front and rear axle.

The company upholstery shop adds equally exclusive and sporty highlights in the interior with an exquisite BRABUS fine leather interior made from black leather with azure blue decorative elements. The BRABUS interior designers demonstrate their tremendous love of detail with perforations against a blue background on various parts of the seats.

Exclusive BRABUS carbon elements plus aluminium pedals and door-lock pins additionally put an even stronger emphasis on the sporty ambitions of the tuned four-seater. The BRABUS speedometer with 340-km/h (211-mph) scale was also matched to the performance potential of this cabriolet.

The BRABUS 650 Cabrio is available as a complete vehicle or can be built based on any Mercedes C 63 S Cabriolet all at once or in stages.
