Exactly one week ago we informed you that the South African tuner RACE! South Africa under the label "BRABUS by RACE!"Now completely rebuilt Brabus vehicle on its feet. The first project was a 600 PS AMG GT which has received the complete Brabus makeover and now it is a GLE63 AMG (C292) which was presented on the company's website. Also, this vehicle has received almost everything that Brabus has in the range, only in terms of performance, we are unsure. On the one hand it could be the Variant 700 - 5.5 Biturbo be with 700PS but also the 850 - 6.0 biturbo conversion would be conceivable. We hope to receive some additional information in this regard. Regardless of this, the look is identical because the body kit is the same for both performance variants.
The Brabus aerodynamic components were installed in the chic visible carbon of this vehicle and they come, for example, with a front spoiler lip including sidewings and additional frames for the air intakes of the front bumper. Also, the grille is new and comes with a large Brabus emblem and continues with filigree side skirts and a modified rear apron with carbon trims. It has a sporty diffuser insert with central rear fog light and makes the rear look very striking. In addition, there is also the Brabus emblem instead of the Mercedes star and also changed the taillights.
These are much darker than the standard parts and we assume that you have used here simply colored clear coat and glazed the tail lights. Under no circumstances conceivable in Germany, with high probability no problem in South Africa, And of course there was also a new wheelset and here is the glossy black BRABUS monobloc "PLATINUM EDITION" forged wheel in the dimensions 11Jx23 inches with huge Continental 6 XXN 335 / 30 ZR23 tires on the rear axle and 295 / 35 ZR23 slippers front. By means of the BRABUS control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension, the tuner achieves a lowering of approx. 35 millimeters and thus the wheel set sits perfectly in the wheel arch.
Not to be missed, of course, a powerful sports exhaust system and installed here RACE! The Brabus system with metal catalysts (stainless steel) and exhaust flap control as well as active sound management can be controlled via the push of a button on the steering wheel. Few pictures and information are against the interior. Apart from the illuminated BRABUS door sills we can not see any changes compared to the series and maybe the GLE inside is almost a series. However, this is not an option on the part of BRABUS because on request, the tuner from Bottrop also refines the cabin to the last corner.
Rounding out the GLE63 AMG with completely darkened windows around which we according to German legislation probably, as well as the glazed taillights, must never possess legal. Of course, if we get details about the performance improvement or the changes in the interior, there is, as always, an update for this report.

These are the changes to the Mercedes GLE63 AMG:
- possibly the Brabus performance increase to 515kW / 700PS or 625 kW / 850 PS (information is missing) - this is achieved by changing the intake and charge air pipes, BRABUS special turbochargers, larger downpipes, Brabus software, etc.)
- Brabus port exhaust system with metal catalytic converters (stainless steel) and exhaust flap control as well as active sound management at the push of a button on the steering wheel
- Carbon aerodynamic components (front spoiler lip, side air intakes in the front bumper, rear apron with carbon fiber panels, diffuser insert with LED fog light, rear spoiler)
- BRABUS alloy wheels in 23 inch (BRABUS monoblock "PLATINUM EDITION" high-tech forged wheels in 11Jx23 inch)
- High-performance tires from Continental
- Lowering with BRABUS control module for AIRMATIC air suspension (lowering approx. 35 millimeters)
