An answer to the question ‘what to get a man (or woman) who has everything’ may have been supplied this week, with a new monster unveiled by Brabus.

The German tuning house is famous for fettling select Mercedes-Benz powerhouses, and turning their power and performance off the scale.

And now, Brabus has taken on Benz’s new granddaddy, by waving a berserk wand over the flagship Mercedes-Maybach luxury limousine.

For those who find the 390kW/830Nm AMG 6.0 litre V12 in the ‘regular’ Maybach S 600 simply inadequate, Brabus has got you covered by increasing the cubic capacity to 6.3 litres, adding bigger turbochargers, and upping power and torque to 662kW and 1500Nm.

That’s a 272kW and 670Nm boost - numbers which, on their own, would look good on the spec sheet of any reasonable performance car - yet the Brabus V12 is still Euro VI emissions compliant and uses 11.9 l/100km.

Understandably, the Brabus Maybach will leave the standard Maybach chewing on its dust in a race to 100km/h (should you be so uncouth). The Brabus version takes 3.7 seconds, beating the latter’s 5.0 second time by 1.3 seconds.

The top speed also improves, with Brabus claiming its Maybach will hit 350km/h despite tipping the scales at more than 2.8 tonnes.

To ensure you don’t miss the moment when your limo hits its top speed, Brabus has fitted a new speedometer which tops out at 400km/h.

Beyond the powerhouse under the bonnet, Brabus’s Maybach makeover sees the interior gain “even more luxurious fine leather” (if you believe that’s possible), while the exterior gains new high-tech 21-inch forged alloy wheels and some aerodynamic enhancements.

Brabus adds a new radiator grille and a new front bumper containing larger air intakes for the front brakes. The rear bumper is also replaced to accommodate the altered quad exhaust system.

The tuner has even lowered the Maybach’s ride height be a full one inch (25mm), but says the ride quality hasn’t been affected.

Brabus has also developed a package for the Maybach S 500, which takes the standard 335kW/700Nm 4.7 litre twin-turbocharged V8 and ups power and torque by 62kW and 120Nm respectively.
