The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E 63 S is one of the best driving cars you can purchase. Brabus has modified the model adding more performance and fancy appearance accents to make Ito the new Brabus 800.

Brabus has kept the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that comes standard in the model giving it a tune that has it now producing 800 horsepower. Injection and ignition mapping are new but the car retains its original nine-speed automatic transmission. Drivers can shift the car using the traditional shifter or Brabus Race aluminum shift paddles on the steering wheel. The car can go from zero to 62 mph in 3.0 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph.

Its exterior is highlighted with carbon fiber accents, which are part of a purpose-built aerodynamics enhancement package. The custom front spoiler lip and air intakes on each side above it reduce lift while the Brabus rear spoiler and diffuser do the same job out back. The car's badges have been blacked out.

There's a valve-controlled sports exhaust system with carbon tailpipes, which allows the full baritone of the power plant shine. A variety of different exhaust modes and volume levels are available for use ranging from discreet "coming home" mode to full-on "race" mode. An adaptive suspension moves the car by as much as 20 millimeters depending on the drive mode selected.

It rolls on 21-inch forged Platinum Edition Z wheels with a 10-spoke design that have been tailor made for the car. They feature red pin striping that matches the red Brabus stripes on the car's grille. Continental, Pirelli, and Yokohama tires are available on the model.

The Brabus 800 isn't just sleek on the outside. Inside, the car has been refined as well with leather upholstery matched with stainless steel doorsills that feature an illuminated Brabus logo, which changes color to match the ambient lighting scheme chosen by the driver that is displayed throughout the interior of the model. There's also Brabus door pins and aluminum pedals.

Want more customization? Brabus's in-house saddlery is able to spec out the car based on buyer preferences as well.

Pricing for the model has not yet been disclosed. The original Mercedes product starts at over $107,000.

New electric luxury vehicles

Three new Mercedes-Benz EVs we can't wait to see

Mercedes showed off its electric future at the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Germany.


Mercedes-Benz is going electric, and though it only recently announced its firm plans to do so, it already seems that the German automaker is moving quickly toward that goal. At the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Munich, Mercedes showed off some of its upcoming electrified products. We've seen the EQS, a flagship electric sedan, but three newcomers made an appearance at the show.

Mercedes-Benz EQB EQB will be Mercedes' electric family SUV.Mercedes-Benz


EQB is the brand's family-sized SUV, offering seating for up to seven people. A long wheelbase of 111.3 inches and adjustable second-row seating allows more interior space for people and gear. Mercedes says the EQB will offer two powertrain configurations: The EQB 300 4MATIC will get 225 horsepower and the EQB 350 4MATIC will sport 288 horsepower. A front-wheel drive configuration will go on sale later and a long-range model will follow.

Concept EQG is a preview of the eventual electrification of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, its boxy, upper-crust off-roader. This concept is far closer to a design exercise than something we'll actually see in production, but it's an interesting demonstration, nonetheless. With 22-inch wheels, wild exterior lighting touches, and what the automaker says will be legendary off-road abilities, the EQG will be an exciting vehicle when it does make an appearance.

Mercedes-Benz EQE EQE will follow the EQS as a smaller, sportier electric sedan in 2022.Mercedes-Benz


EQE is the second car to use Mercedes' EVA2 electric architecture, following the EQS sedan. The car is currently scheduled for a staggered release in mid-2022 and will feature a more compact and sportier design than its predecessor. Mercedes says that the car will be available with either 19- or 21-inch wheels, and notes that its size is comparable to the current CLS coupe-sedan. The car offers an impressive range of up to 410 miles on a single charge from its 90kWh battery and special charging capabilities through the Mercedes me Charge network.

The Navigator gets several updates for 2022, including new styling and tech.


The Lincoln Navigator was one of the first ultra-luxury SUVs when it launched over two decades ago, which helped kickstart the big-vehicle craze that still rages on today. Lincoln has continued improving the Navigator over the years to the point that it's now a rolling showcase of the latest and most impressive tech, staggering luxury features, and actual utility vehicle functionality. The vehicle was last fully overhauled in 2018, but the 2022 model picks up revised style, even more premium features, and new themes for the range-topping Navigator Black Label model.

2022 Lincoln Navigator Black Label is Lincoln's top trim offering, and is available in several of its vehicles. Lincoln

Lincoln introduced two new themes as part of the Navigator's Black Label offering for 2022. The Central Park theme features dark walnut open-pore wood trim, luxury leather in an exclusive Urban Green color, and an available Black Label-exclusive Manhattan Green Metallic paint color. The Invitation theme brings open-pore Khaya wood, Venetian luxury black leather, special interior lighting elements, and brandy-colored stitching. Both themes feature laser etching and other intricate detail work inside the vheicle.

Black Label launched in 2014 and is Lincoln's top-end end model offering. It's available in the Nautilus, Aviator, and Navigator, and brings several vehicle features and auxiliary services to Lincoln owners. Black Label vehicle features and services include:

  • Concierge access: The Lincoln concierge can schedule service or cleaning, answer vehicle questions, and help schedule dinners or other experiences. Black Label owners also get a complimentary dinner for two, which can be scheduled through the concierge.
  • Special airport and rental car services: Lincoln partnered with Avis to provide guaranteed rental car access, an exclusive and dedicated phone line for Black Label owners, and free rentals at select airports. Owners also get a membership to CLEAR, which offers expedited airport security passage and other perks.
  • Extended complimentary maintenance plan: Black Label owners receive four years of free maintenance. If the owner lives within 50 miles of a dealer, they will pick up and deliver the vehicle so that the owner does not need to leave home. Free car washes and annual detailing are also part of the deal.

We don't have pricing details for the 2022 Navigator yet, but we expect its price tag to be similar to that of the 2021 Black Label model, which started at around $100,000 after destination. Lincoln says that it will release more information closer to the Navigator's expected on-sale date early in 2022.
