A 0-60 mph time of 4.2 secs doesn't sound so impressive when you consider that the stock ML63 AMG does it in 4.8 secs.

Is 0.6 secs that much of a speed differential to justify what must be the substantial price difference?

I can only conclude that it must have a higher top speed than the ML63 AMG?


Love the tastefully lowered stance and those huge 23" wheels though!

Nice. I doubt the price tag is worth it though...

Ride quality nothing...when you get into 160+MPH in an SUV...you should not even wear a seat belt...it wouldn't help anyway.

Yes but 4.2 is closer to 4 secs and 4.8 to 5. 1 second here makes a huge difference. It's like ML320 and ML55 in our W163 world.

ML320 to ML55? Not quite....more like the ML500 to the ML55. After driving both, the difference is barely noticeable....I would take it that the ML63 to the ML63 brabus is the same type of competition.

Hi Kajtek, nice to see you again. What happened to designo ML55?
Sold after advertising for over a year for less than 70% of BB value.
Sad to see how our drives drop value like bombs, but it is nice time to seek a replacement.
I am more for diesels, especially those with less than 7 seconds.

Did you read my review of the 2009 320 BlueTec on the W211 forum? Forget the hybrids or the fuel missing Hondas. These MB diesels are doing very very well.
