BRABUS NIEUWS

World premiere at the Geneva Auto Show 2017 BRABUS 650 Cabrio

478 kW / 650 HP, 820 Nm, 320 km/h top speed, carbon and hi-tech forged wheels for the open-top Mercedes C 63 S



BRABUS 650 Cabrio, the new compact high-performance sensation under a blue sky. To this end, the twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine of the Mercedes C 63 S Cabriolet receives a performance upgrade to a peak output of 478 kW / 650 HP (641 bhp) and a peak torque of 820 Nm (604 lb-ft). As a result, the open-top four-seater accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320 km/h (200 mph).

Carbon components for the bodywork developed in the wind tunnel, tailor-made 20-inch forged wheels and an exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior add further highlights.

The four-liter twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine of the C 63 S offers an excellent basis for professional engine tuning as BRABUS has been offering now for four decades. The BRABUS PowerXtra B40S – 650 performance upgrade boosts the power output of the compact convertible by an impressive 103 kW / 140 HP (138 bhp)! The BRABUS engine experts went to great lengths to achieve this sizeable performance increase. The conversion includes two special turbochargers with larger compressor unit and a special core assembly with reinforced axial bearings. In addition, the BRABUS PowerXtra module is adapted to the electronic engine control unit of the top-of-the-line C-Class Cabriolet. The auxiliary control unit has special mapping for the electronic boost pressure limiter, injection and ignition. In concert with the larger turbos, these new parameters result in a performance increase from standard 375 kW / 510 HP (502 bhp) to 478 kW / 650 HP (641 bhp) at a low 5,800 rpm. Peak torque grows simultaneously from 700 to 820 Nm (516 to 604 lb-ft), and is on tap steadily between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. These performance figures are of course also reflected in the significantly improved driving performance. In concert with the seven-speed sport transmission of the C 63 S, which can be shifted manually with the ergonomically shaped BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel, the BRABUS 650 Cabrio shoots from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds. The BRABUS Vmax Unit included in the engine conversion increases the electronically limited top speed to 320 km/h (200 mph). Especially the sporty-minded drivers of this high-power cabriolet will be delighted with the optionally available BRABUS Stop- Start Memory module that stores the last selected setting of the standard start-stop system and retains it even after an engine restart or change of the driving dynamics mode.

An acoustic as well as visual treat is the all-stainless BRABUS sport exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flap, which can also be purchased separately without the engine tuning. It offers an electronic sound management controlled from the cockpit. At the touch of a button, drivers can switch between a subtle “Coming Home" mode and a decidedly sporty engine sound with open exhaust flaps. 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).

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 millimeters (0.8 to 1.6 in), which can be dialed 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 aluminum pedals and door-lock pins additionally put 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. Fuel economy, CO2 emissions and efficiency class: BRABUS 650 Cabrio based on the Mercedes C 63 S Cabriolet: city 12.4 l/100 km, highway 7.5 l/100 km, combined: 9.3 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 218 g/km, efficiency class E. 

Exclusive BRABUS refinement for the new E-Class




Mercedes-Benz continues the long success story of the E-Class with the W 213 model series presents an exclusive refinement program for the new sedan. The product lineup ranges from engine tuning for the various gasoline and diesel models to sporty-elegant aerodynamic-enhancement components for the different equipment variants. Of course, BRABUS also offers tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock wheels with diameters of up to 21 inches, precision-tuned suspension solutions, and individual options for customizing the interior. All components come with the one-of-a-kind three-year or 100,000- kilometer/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® as a matter of course (see BRABUS Warranty terms and Conditions, updated July 2013).

The new E-Class comes ex-factory in several design and equipment lines and thus with two different bumpers for the front and rear. Sporty-elegant styling has been an inimitable trademark of BRABUS for 40 years. In keeping with this tradition, the BRABUS designers developed two tailor-made aerodynamic-enhancement kits for the W 213 model series, both manufactured in OEM quality from PUR for perfect fit and paintability. The BRABUS styling package for new E-Class models coming off the factory assembly lines in standard specification or with AVANTGARDE or EXCLUSIVE package starts with a front spoiler. This aerodynamic-enhancement component lends the sedan a more distinctive face and reduces lift on the front axle in addition, thereby improving handling stability at high speeds. The front of these W 213 models can be upgraded further with dynamically sweeping BRABUS surrounds for the side air intakes. The BRABUS rear bumper insert with diffuser look lends the rear a sportier appearance. Two cutouts on the left and right provide the perfect backdrop for the BRABUS quad sport exhaust. The understated BRABUS rear spoiler for the trunk lid fits all current E-Class sedans and thanks to its sophisticated shape reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds. Of course, BRABUS also offers tailor-made bodywork components for upgrading the new E-Class sedans ordered ex-factory with AMG Line exterior. The markedly sportily styled BRABUS front spoiler attaches to the lower part of the AMG Line bumper. The outer sections of the aerodynamic-enhancement component are shaped like flaps, giving the vehicle an even more dynamic appearance. Vertical BRABUS surrounds for the outer air intakes also play a part in making the front of the refined sedan more distinctive. Another sporty BRABUS design element is the diffuser for the rear bumper. This aerodynamic-enhancement component forms the perfect backdrop for the four chrome-plated tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust. What is more: The three vertical fins in the central diffuser duct also optimize the airflow.

BRABUS Monoblock alloys, which are available in various designs and versions with diameters from 18 to 21 inches, are just as important for an individual appearance. The largest available option for the new E- Class features forged BRABUS Monoblock F, R or Y “Platinum Edition" hi-tech wheels of sizes 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 at the rear. They can be mounted with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 21 at the front and 295/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.

BRABUS developed various suspension solutions ranging from sport springs for a ride-height lowering by about 30 millimeters (1.2 in) to a special control module for models equipped with AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension to match the conversion to high- performance tires.

Of course, the BRABUS product range also already features initial power upgrades for the new Mercedes E-Class. The smallest gasoline model, the E 200, benefits from BRABUS PowerXtra B20 tuning. After the installation of the plug-and-play module, the four-cylinder turbo produces an output of 165 kW / 225 HP (221 bhp) and a peak torque of 330 Nm (243 lb-ft). Of course, BRABUS also offers more power and driving fun for the various turbodiesel models of the new E-Class. The BRABUS PowerXtra D3 module increases the power output of the Mercedes E 220 d by 20 kW / 27 HP (27 bhp) and boosts peak torque by 50 Nm (37 lb- ft). The strongest turbodiesel variant, the E 350 d, also benefits substantially from BRABUS PowerXtra tuning, in this case in the guise of the D6 S. The auxiliary control unit can be installed in under an hour and delivers an increase in power by 37 kW / 51 HP (50 bhp), while boosting peak torque by 100 Nm (74 lb-ft). The new peak torque of 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) is available unerringly on a lofty plateau between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm. Thus equipped, the tuned four-door car accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.7 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). BRABUS stainless sport exhausts with four chrome-plated tailpipes are available for all gasoline and diesel engines.

BRABUS also offers a variant with actively controlled exhaust flaps for the E 43, which allow altering the exhaust note at the touch of a button in the cockpit between a decidedly subtle “Coming home" mode and a particularly sporty sound.

Sheer luxury and individuality in the interior is naturally also part of the BRABUS product range for the new E-Class. The lineup of available options ranges from stainless scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo in 64 colors just like the standard- fit ambience lighting of the interior to aluminum accessories such as pedals and door pins. It is crowned by an exclusive BRABUS fine leather all-leather interior, which the company upholstery shop creates from especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara in any desired color. 

 

World premiere at the ESSEN MOTOR SHOW 2016

BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR based on the Mercedes-Benz GLS



Luxury SUV with 625 kW / 850 HP, 1,450 Nm of torque, a top speed of 300 km/h, WIDESTAR widebody and 23-inch forged wheels

The BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR was developed based on the top-of- the-range model of the new Mercedes GLS-Class, the GLS 63 4MATIC. The result is a supercar that could not be more characteristic for BRABUS. At the heart of the BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR is an eight- cylinder twin-turbo engine with a displacement increased to six liters. A rated output of 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) and peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) sling the exclusive SUV from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. The top speed is limited electronically to 300 km/h (186 mph). The combination of newly developed BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody, naked carbon aerodynamic-enhancement components and tailor-made 23-inch BRABUS Monoblock "PLATINUM EDITION" hi-tech forged wheels lend the high-performance 4x4 an unmistakable appearance. Just as exclusive is the customization of the interior with a BRABUS fine leather interior and newly designed BRABUS precious- wood trim, both crafted with consummate workmanship in every minute detail.

The name for this exclusive SUV comes from the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo increased-displacement engine that produces a whopping 195 kW / 265 HP (261 bhp) more power than its stock counterpart. The recipe for doing so is as elaborate as it is tried and proven: more displacement translates into more power, and for this reason, the company hi-tech engine shop increases the displacement of the eight-cylinder four- valve engine from stock 5,461 cc to 5912 cc (333 to 361 cu in). To this end, the cylinder bore is increased to 99 millimeters (3.89 in) and the engine is fitted with correspondingly larger forged pistons. A special precision-balanced billet crankshaft in concert with forged high-performance piston rods increases the stroke to 96 millimeters (3.77 in). In addition, the engineers optimize the two cylinder heads of the V-8 for mixture flow. The engine bay is dominated by the BRABUS 850 intake module, which is manufactured from carbon and is specifically designed for the BRABUS increased-displacement engine. It is complemented by two newly designed air filter boxes with larger intake cross-section. Sophisticated carbon air ducts supply the intake with fresh combustion air. Just as crucial for the phenomenal performance upgrade is the newly designed forced induction system: the engineers developed modified exhaust manifolds to fit the engine with special BRABUS turbochargers with larger compressor units. To lower the charge air temperature, the intake tubes and charge pipes are fitted with special “Gold Heat Reflection" sheathing that stands out immediately. The increased-displacement engine also includes larger downpipes with a diameter of 75 millimeters (2.95 in), and metal catalysts.

The last link in the chain is the BRABUS stainless high-performance exhaust system with actively controlled exhaust flaps for an active sound management. Drivers can switch between a throaty V-8 exhaust note in ‘Sport‘ mode and a discreet whisper in ‘Coming Home‘ mode at a touch of a button in the cockpit. The ceramic-coated tailpipes sport the BRABUS logo and stand out from the crowd visually as well. The perfect calibration of all high-performance components by the BRABUS power unit engineers and electronics specialists is the result of extensive bench and road tests. The professional execution of all work ensures not only an optimal power output, but also a long service life beyond reproach. BRABUS vouches for this with the exemplary three-year or 100,000-km/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL. The huge amount of work is reflected in unrivalled performance figures: a power output of 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) at a low 5,400 rpm is equally a benchmark in this category of vehicles as is the phenomenal peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft), which is on tap on a flat plateau between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm. As a result, the BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR delivers a performance on par with a full-blooded sports car: From rest, the SUV weighing in at more than 2.6 tons accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds. Due to the vehicle‘s weight, the top speed is limited electronically to 300 km/h (186 mph). As an option, BRABUS also offers two performance upgrades to 464 kW / 630 HP or 515 kW / 700 HP (622 or 690 bhp) for the Mercedes GLS 63 S. Of course, the aerodynamics, tires and suspension are also modified to match the tremendous performance of the BRABUS 850 XL.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody version for the GLS class celebrates its world premiere at the ESSEN MOTOR SHOW 2016. The bodywork conversion is characterized by muscular fender flares on the front and rear axle, which add eight centimeters (3.1 in) to the width of the large SUV. The WIDESTAR flares are molded to the production front and rear bumpers of the GLS 63 with tailor-made extensions. In addition, the conversion includes the BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement components designed to be used with or without the WIDESTAR modifications. The BRABUS front spoiler lip attaches to the lower part of the front bumper and lends the SUV an even more distinctive face. What is more: the shape, which was optimized in the wind tunnel, reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds, thereby further improving the handling stability. The side air intakes in the front bumper are upgraded with tailor-made air deflectors with integrated LED side markers. The rear bumper is upgraded with a new carbon diffusor insert, which provides the perfect backdrop for the two dual ceramic- coated tailpipes of the BRABUS high-performance exhaust with actively controlled exhaust flaps. The BRABUS roof spoiler adds the icing on the cake. All BRABUS bodywork components are manufactured in OEM quality from PUR or carbon, consequently guaranteeing a perfect fit and problem-free paintability.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR widebody also makes room for extreme tire variants. The large wheel wells of the GL-Class offer just enough space for installing forged 23-inch hi-tech wheels. The most exclusive option features BRABUS Monoblock "PLATINUM EDITION" h-tech forged wheels of size 11Jx23. Thanks to state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, these wheels perfectly combine lightweight design and maximum strength. The matching high-performance tires for the SUV come from BRABUS technology partner Continental. The vehicle can be fitted with high-performance street tires up to size 295/35 R 23 front and back. The BRABUS chassis engineers developed a special control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension to optimize the driving dynamics further and to give the vehicle an even sportier appearance by lowering the ride height of the BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR and any stock GLS 63 by about 30 millimeters (1.2 in).

The luxury appointments of the BRABUS supercar of course also include an exquisite BRABUS fine leather interior. The interior appointments are tailored to customer specifications from a combination of especially soft and breathable Mastik leather and Alcantara. The vehicle featured here is fitted with a brown BRABUS all-leather interior with especially gorgeous braided- leather highlights to contrast with the black paint finish. Just as exclusive is the BRABUS precious-wood trim produced from grained ash wood. Aluminum components such as pedals and door pins highlight the sporty character of the vehicle. BRABUS offers special aluminum paddle shifters with RACE design for even more precise gear changes when operating the SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission manually. The BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR is built to customer order. Alternatively, any GLS 63 can be converted to this specification all at once or in stages. Fuel economy, CO2 emissions and efficiency class: BRABUS 850 XL WIDESTAR based on the Mercedes GLS 63: city 15.8 l/100 km, highway 10.3 l/100 km, combined: 12.3 l/100 km. Combined CO2 emissions: 288 g/km, efficiency class E. 

 

September 2015 : New from BRABUS ZERO EMISSION : exclusive high-end refinement for the Tesla Model S



The Tesla Model S with up to 568 kW / 772 hp in „Ludicrous Mode“ is without a doubt the textbook example of a state-of-the-art high-performance electric car. BRABUS and its Zero Emission business division have been concentrating on alternative powertrains for about a decade. It is only logical then to invest the BRABUS expertise from more than 35 years in automotive construction and tuning at the highest level in a high-end refinement program for Tesla Model S.
BRABUS celebrates the world premiere of the Tesla S customized by BRABUS ZERO EMISSION at the IAA 2015 in Frankfurt am Main.
In a first step, BRABUS ZERO EMISSION will offer exclusive refinement options for the bodywork and the interior of Model S. The product lineup ranges from sporty aerodynamic-enhancement components made from clear-coated carbon and 21-inch high-tech forged wheels to a BRABUS fine leather interior created from the finest leather and Alcantara.

One of the world-renowned specialties of the BRABUS design team is adding more sporty emphasis to elegant vehicle designs. This formula was also realized successfully in the case of the Tesla Model S. Tailor- made aerodynamic-enhancement components that received their finishing touches in the wind tunnel were developed using state- of-the-art 3D scanning and CAD technology. Just as in motor racing, the material of choice is carbon, permanently sealed with a high-gloss or a matte protective coating.

The BRABUS bodywork components lend the front end of the Tesla Model S a sporty facelift. The carbon attachments for the side air intakes give the car an even more distinctive appearance and optimize the flow of cooling air to the radiators. The BRABUS carbon spoiler lip adds even more dynamics to the front view while also reducing lift on the front axle at high speeds thanks to its sophisticated shape.

The insert in the production rear bumper of the Tesla Model S is replaced with the BRABUS carbon diffuser. This aerodynamic- enhancement component impresses with its optimized air deflection while its visible carbon structure lends the sedan‘s rear end a touch of racing flair as well.

Of course, the BRABUS Monoblock Y “PLATINUM EDITION" forged wheels tailor-made for the Tesla Model S also play a crucial role in the exclusive BRABUS ZERO EMISSION appearance. The one-piece high- tech wheels with delicate Y-shaped spokes are manufactured using a state-of-the-art production process and offer an outstanding combination of lightweight construction and strength. The rims of size 9Jx21 at all four corners make optimal use of the available space under the wheel arches. Tires of sizes 255/35 R 21 at the front and 265/35 R 21 on the rear axle were selected as the perfect rubber. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA supply the optimal high-performance tires.

The BRABUS customization program for the Tesla Model S also includes exclusive options for the interior. The product range starts with stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo that changes color from white to blue. The newly developed BRABUS center console for the transmission tunnel offers welcome storage options for keys and similar items. What is more: The integrated cup holders can be set to cooling or heating. In addition, the center console is equipped with a wireless smartphone charger.

Exclusive interior refinement has been a world-renowned BRABUS domain for decades. In the company upholstery shop, absolute masters of their profession create exclusive interior appointments for the Tesla Model S as well. They use especially soft, breathable and extremely hardwearing leather and Alcantara in any desired color to create BRABUS fine leather interiors in a wide range of designs. BRABUS ZERO EMISSION also offers tailor-made genuine carbon and wood trims sets for the cockpit of the electric luxury sedan. These trim sets also come in an unmatched variety of colors and surface finishes.

The BRABUS ZERO EMISSION customization program for the Tesla Model S is available now and will be expanded continuously.

September 2015 : BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe : Zero – 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h



The world‘s most powerful and fastest SUV coupe with 625 kW / 850 HP and 1,450 Nm of peak torque

The new Mercedes GLE Coupe has arrived and the GLE 63 4MATIC is the perfect platform for the engineers and designers of BRABUS to turn into the world‘s most powerful and fastest SUV coupe.
The BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe is powered by a turbocharged V8 engine with a displacement of 6 liters. With a rated output of 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) and a peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft), the super car launches itself from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 320 km/h (200 mph).
Aerodynamic-enhancement components made from clear-coated carbon and tailor-made BRABUS wheels including 23-inch king-sized rims lend the fastback SUV an especially exclusive appearance.
BRABUS fine leather interiors created from the finest leather and Alcantara in any desired color are available for customizing the cockpit.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 twin-turbo increased-displacement engine turns the GLE 63 Coupe and of course its brethren sporting the standard five-door body style into a high-performance vehicle in a class of its own.

To increase the displacement of the eight-cylinder engine from standard 5,461 cc to 5,912 cc (333 to 361 cu in), BRABUS bores out the cylinders to 99 millimeters (4 in) and installs correspondingly larger forged pistons. A special billet crankshaft with a stroke of 96 mm (3.8 in) instead of the standard 90.5 millimeters (3.6 in) and similarly forged longer piston rods round off the displacement increase. In addition, both cylinder heads of the V8 are optimized for gas flow.

The BRABUS 850 intake module designed specifically for the BRABUS increased-displacement engine immediately stands out when the hood is popped. It is made from carbon and includes a new air filter housing with enlarged intake cross-section. A sophisticated air duct integrated into the hood supplies it with cooling air.

Other equally fundamental components of the high-performance engine on the other hand are hidden deep down in the engine bay: the two production turbos are replaced with special turbochargers with larger compressor units and modified exhaust manifolds. To lower the charge air temperature further, the intake and charge air pipes are insulated with "Gold Heat Reflection" sheathing that immediately catches the eye.

This engine conversion also includes larger 75-millimeter (3 in) thick down pipes and a newly designed exhaust system. In concert with metal catalysts, the BRABUS stainless-steel exhaust system with controlled butterfly valves optimizes the power delivery. This exhaust also offers active sound management controlled from the driver‘s seat: the exhaust note can be alternated between a throaty V8 sound in “sport" mode and a subtle whisper in “coming home" mode.

The BRABUS engine and electronics engineers used their tremendous knowledge to ensure the optimal interaction of these high- performance components in extensive tests on the road and on test rigs. This ensures not only maximum power, but also exemplary clean emissions and flawless durability. BRABUS vouches for this with the model BRABUS Tuning Warranty of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000 miles (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL.

This vastly elaborate design is reflected in outstanding performance: the rated power output of 625 kW / 850 HP (838 bhp) at a low 5,400 rpm and the gigantic peak torque of 1,450 Nm (1,069 lb-ft) between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm are both reference values in this category of vehicles.

The performance of the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe is correspondingly outstanding: the SUV weighing more than 2,350 kilograms (5,180 pounds) launches itself from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. Tire limitations necessitate restricting the top speed electronically to 320 km/h (200 mph).

Thrilling looks and optimal aerodynamic efficiency: The BRABUS designers developed high-tech carbon bodywork components for the GLE 63 that give both variants an even more spectacular appearance. The front spoiler lip, which attaches to the lower section of the bumper, lends the SUV an even more distinctive face. What is more: Its sophisticated shape minimizes lift on the front axle at high speeds for further optimized handling stability. The air intakes at the sides of the front bumper feature tailor-made air deflectors to give the vehicle an even sportier profile and direct the air to the air intakes in the side of the vehicle, which are equipped with integrated LED side markers.

For the rear bumper, BRABUS developed carbon trim for the side air outlets and a new diffuser insert, which provides the perfect backdrop for the two visual identifying features of the BRABUS high-performance exhaust system. The ceramics-coated design tailpipes marked with the BRABUS logo fill out the cutouts to the left and right of the diffuser fully. The BRABUS roof spoiler rounds off the aerodynamic- enhancement concept for the coupe.

BRABUS alloy wheels for the GLE 63 come in various designs and with diameters of 21, 22 or 23 inches. The most exclusive option is the BRABUS Monoblock "PLATINUM EDITION" high-tech king-sized 11Jx23 forged wheel. Thanks to state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, it offers an unrivalled combination of lightweight construction and maximum strength. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires for the SUV.

A special BRABUS control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension lowers the ride height of the high-performance SUV by about 35 millimeters (1.4 in). This gives the all-wheel-drive car not only a more exciting appearance, but also enhances driving dynamics further by lowering the center of gravity.

BRABUS enjoys a global reputation for excellence in the field of interior design as well. The company upholstery shop creates BRABUS fine leather interiors for the BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe, every detail tailored to the owner‘s preferences. The finest BRABUS Mastik, an especially and breathable type of leather, and Alcantara in any desired color are transformed by hand into high-end interiors from the dashboard and seats to the door panels and the headliner. The BRABUS interior carbon and wood trim sets also offer a maximum variety of colors and surface finishes.

The product range is rounded off with a wide lineup of custom accessories for the cockpit: the options range from aluminum door pins and pedals to stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, whose color changes in sync with the ambiance lighting.

The BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4x4 Coupe can be ordered as a complete car – including the SUV body style. Alternatively, BRABUS can convert any GLE 63 completely or in stages.
 

26.03.2015 - BRABUS refines the new Mercedes C-Class Wagon


Sporty-elegant, exclusive and powerful: these three attributes perfectly describe the BRABUS refinement program for the new Mercedes C-Class Wagon.

As always, BRABUS offers a wide range of options that leaves nothing to be desired: a sporty-elegant aerodynamic-enhancement program for all design and equipment lines and tailor-made alloy wheels with diameters of up to 20 inches lend the wagon an even more exciting appearance. Engine tuning for the various gasoline and diesel models and options for the suspension offer even more driving fun. Custom interior design rounds out the product lineup for the S 205 model series.
Mercedes-Benz offers the new C-Class Wagon in various design and equipment lines: standard specification, AVANTGARDE, EXCLUSIVE and AMG Line. BRABUS has tailor-made bodywork components for all versions, manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade PUR.
The photo shows a vehicle with AMG Line body styling, which is upgraded with a BRABUS front spoiler with markedly sporty design. It fits both the wagon and the sedan, and attaches to the lower section of the bumper. With its central spoiler blade and outer sections shaped like flaps, the BRABUS front spoiler, which in this case is painted titanium gray, lends the wagon an even more striking face while reducing aerodynamic lift on the front axle at high speeds for further enhanced handling stability.
Another sporty BRABUS design element on this car is the diffuser-look rear bumper insert, likewise painted in contrasting color. It provides the perfect backdrop for the four chrome-plated tailpipes of the BRABUS sports exhaust system.
BRABUS Monoblock wheels, which can be mounted on all C-Class sedans and wagons in various designs and with diameters of 18, 19 or 20 inches, also play a crucial role in the exciting BRABUS look. This particular wagon runs on BRABUS Monoblock F cross-spoke wheels of sizes 8.5Jx20 at the front and 9.5Jx20 on the rear axle. The wheels were painted black and refined with titanium- colored pinstripes to match the BRABUS bodywork conversion. The optimal high-performance tires of sizes 225/35 ZR 20 and 255/30 ZR 20 are supplied by BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.

The BRABUS sports suspensions with a sporty-comfortable setup and sports springs were developed jointly with BILSTEIN and are calibrated to the use with these sporty low-profile tires. The sports springs were adapted perfectly to the production shocks and lower the ride height of the C-Class by about 30 millimeters. The sportiest available version is a BRABUS coilover suspension with adjustable ride height that can be set to the customers preferences. Whats more: the shock absorbers also feature ten-stage adjustable compression and rebound rates.
A BRABUS control module is available for C-Class models equipped with AIRMATIC air suspension ex-factory to enable lowering the ride height of the vehicle.

BRABUS offers the worlds most extensive engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. Like all BRABUS components, the performance kits are backed by the one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000 miles (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL. The latest performance kit for the gasoline models of the C-Class is called BRABUS PowerXtra B25.2. The installation of the plug-and-play tuning module takes less than an hour. Modified engine mapping bumps rated output by 25 kW / 34 hp (34 bhp) while peak torque grows by 50 Nm (37 lb-ft). With a new power output of 180 kW / 245 hp (241 bhp) and a new peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb- ft), the sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened to 6.5 seconds while top speed increases to 250 km/h (155 mph).
Like all BRABUS PowerXtra performance kits, this tuning kit was designed to reliably prevent any decrease in the engines service life. The performance-enhancing mapping is only active once all parameters such as engine temperature etc. are in the green. It goes without saying that the engine complies with strict EURO VI emission standards even after installation of the tuning kit. BRABUS performance kits are also available for the other four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline models: under the BRABUS PowerXtra B18.2 label an extra 15 kW / 21 hp (21 bhp) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) more torque are available for the C 180. The four-cylinder turbocharged engine of the C 200 gasoline model adds 30 kW / 41 hp (40 bhp) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) of torque with the BRABUS PowerXtra B20.2 performance kit. Modern diesel engines such as those in the current Mercedes C-Class also harbor dormant reserves that can be unleashed safely with professional BRABUS engine tuning. And thanks to compliance with strict EURO VI emission standards, it can all be done with an absolutely clean environmental conscience. The plug-and-play BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D3 kit can be installed by any specialist workshop and boosts power output of the Mercedes C 220 BlueTEC by 26 kW / 35 hp (35 bhp) while bumping peak torque by 50 Nm (37 lb-ft). With a sprint time of just 7.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph), the diesel model is considerably more dynamic. BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D4 tuning was developed for the C 250 BlueTEC model. It increases the power output of the common- rail turbodiesel engine from standard 150 kW / 204 hp to 173 kW / 235 hp (201 to 232 bhp) and peak torque from 500 Nm to 550 Nm (368 to 405 lb-ft). This shortens the C 250 BlueTEC Wagons sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) to 6.4 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (155 mph).

BRABUS stainless-steel quad sports exhaust systems are a factor in optimizing power delivery with or without engine tuning. Whats more: they also produce a sporty but never obtrusive exhaust note.

The BRABUS product program also has a host of refinement options to offer for the interior of the new Mercedes C-Class Wagon: it includes custom accessories such as aluminum pedals, speedometers with scales up to 340 km/h (211 mph) and high-quality velour floor mats with BRABUS logo as well as especially exclusive BRABUS fine leather interiors crafted from particularly soft and breathable leather and Alcantara.

 

27.02.2015 - BRABUS Exclusive Program for the new Mercedes V-Class




The new Mercedes V-Class as a sporty-elegant jack of all trades: in a world premiere, BRABUS presents the exclusive refinement program for the new Mercedes V-Class at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

BRABUS upgrades the people mover with powerful engine tuning, an exclusive appearance package, tailor-made wheels and an individual entertainment concept.

A sporty-elegant design is the trademark of the BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement kit for the new Mercedes V-Class and Vito. All components are manufactured from PUR in OEM quality, giving them a precise fit and making them easy to paint. To make the front of the vehicle more distinctive, the BRABUS designers developed attachments for the side air intakes, and a front spoiler that mounts to the lower section of the bumper. The sophisticated shape of this aerodynamic-enhancement component reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds, further optimizing handling stability. A three-piece fairing was developed for the rear bumper. Its two side pieces provide the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABUS sports exhaust system. In concert with the center piece with diffusor design they lend the Mercedes a markedly sporty rear appearance.

Tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock alloys play a major role in the elegant looks of the refined minivan. The come in four different designs and with diameters of 18 and 19 inches. The largest independently safety- certified version features size 8.5Jx19 wheels, available as BRABUS Monoblock F cross-spoke wheels or in the BRABUS Monoblock R styling with five dimensionally offset pairs of double spokes. The optimal high- performance tires up to size 255/40 ZR 19 are supplied by technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA. To further improve active safety of the new multi-purpose vehicle without compromising the ride quality, the BRABUS suspension engineers developed special sports springs calibrated to the production shocks. They lower the ride height of the V-Class by about 15 to 25 millimeters (.6 to 1 inch) depending on the model. This makes the Mercedes also ready for more power.

In a first step, the BRABUS engine specialists developed the PowerXtra D4 performance kit for the Mercedes V 250 BlueTEC. The plug-and-play module boosts power output of the four-cylinder common-rail turbodiesel engine by 33 kW / 45 hp (44 bhp) and bumps torque by 70 Nm (52 lb-ft). A peak torque of 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) between 1,400 and 2,400 rpm offers superior pulling power that enables the people mover to effortlessly master any traffic situation. Peak power increases from standard 140 kW / 190 hp auf 173 kW / 235 hp (188 to 232 bhp). The minivan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). Nonetheless, thanks to the increased pulling power fuel consumption remains on the level of the production vehicle. It goes without saying that the BRABUS-tuned V 250 BlueTEC continues to comply with the strict EURO VI emissions standards.

In addition, BRABUS offers a stainless-steel sports rear muffler for all engine variants of the new Mercedes V-Class with two chrome-plated tailpipes on either side.

The company upholstery shop can craft exclusive BRABUS fine leather appointments for the spacious interior of the people mover that are custom-tailored to the customers individual requests. To this end, they combine Alcantara and especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather in any conceivable color with refined precious-wood or genuine carbon-fiber elements. In addition, the BRABUS product lineup for the new V-Class includes aluminum door-lock pins and pedal pads as well as scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, whose color alternates between red and white. BRABUS also presents a first expansion stage of the BRABUS business/entertainment system for the new Mercedes V-Class in the show car for the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It consists of two 15.6-inch LCD screens, which are stylishly integrated into the headliner and display the image from Apple TV, Blu-Ray player or DVBT receiver in the interior. For perfect sound reproduction without disturbing other passengers, the system features Sennheiser wireless headphones. Internet via WLAN router and 4G connection is available in the entire interior and can be connected with a smartphone or tablet computer. A BRABUS touch pad is stylishly integrated into the C-pillars on either side in the rear. They can be used to open and close the BRABUS power curtains, operate the sliding door or control the screens, reading lamps and the seat heating.
 

06.01.2015 - BRABUS refines the AMG sports versions of the Mercedes GLA-Class




BRABUS refines the AMG sports versions of the Mercedes GLA-Class: Engine tuning with up to 294 kW / 400 horsepower, 21-inch wheels, aerodynamic enhancement

The Mercedes GLA-Class not only shines as the smallest SUV from the brand, but in the sports version and especially as the GLA 45 sets some markedly dynamic highlights. To further expand on these talents, BRABUS has developed a tailor-made refinement program for the five-door car.
The product range includes engine tuning for the various diesel- and gasoline-powered models culminating in the 294-kW / 400- horsepower version for the GLA 45, aerodynamic-enhancement components, and tailor- made BRABUS Monoblock wheels with diameters of up to 21 inches that give the crossover vehicle an even more athletic appearance.

BRABUS offers the worlds most extensive engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. The product lineup naturally also includes performance kits for the various GLA engines that deliver an optimal symbiosis of power, refinement, flawless durability and exemplary eco-friendliness. The high quality of the products developed by BRABUS is documented by the one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers / 62,000 miles (see BRABUS Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). BRABUS recommends MOTUL high-performance lubricants. BRABUS offers the PowerXtra B25 performance kit for the four-cylinder turbocharged engine of the GLA 250 with front- or all-wheel drive. The plug-and-play module is integrated into the engine electronics. The new parameters for the engine management system and boost pressure control bumps the power output from standard 155 kW / 211 horsepower to 180 kW / 245 horsepower (208 to 241 bhp). At the same time, peak torque jumps from 350 to 385 Nm (258 to 284 lb-ft). This results in noticeably improved driving dynamics and driving fun. The sprint time from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened to 6.7 seconds, the top speed increases to 250 km/h (155 mph). The array of engine tuning for the compact SUV is crowned by the BRABUS PowerXtra CGI B45 tuning kit for the GLA 45. After the conversion, the top-of-the-line GLA model churns out 294 kW / 400 horsepower (394 bhp) and produces a peak torque of 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). With this engine under the hood, the all-wheel-drive car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds. In conjunction with the BRABUS V/max unit, the power-SUV reaches a top speed of 270 km/h (168 mph). BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D3 is the name of particularly efficient performance tuning for the common-rail turbodiesel engine of the Mercedes GLA 220 CDI. The installation of this plug-and-play auxiliary control unit delivers an extra 30 kW / 40 horsepower (40 bhp). Propelled by 155 kW / 210 horsepower (208 bhp) and a peak torque of 410 Nm (302 lb-ft), the agile diesel model sprints from 0 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.0 seconds and reaches a new top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).

The BRABUS sports stainless-steel quad exhaust is available for almost all GLA gasoline and diesel engines. The exhaust system produces a sportier but never obtrusive exhaust note. A BRABUS sports exhaust with actively controlled butterfly valve is optionally available for the GLA 250 4MATIC. It offers the driver an individual sound tuning between subtle and decidedly sporty at the push of a button in the cockpit. A diffusor insert for the rear bumper of the sporty GLA models with AMG body styling matches the BRABUS sports exhaust system and features tailor-made cutouts for the four chrome tailpipes with hallmark design.

The front of the AMG Line version can be upgraded with a BRABUS front spoiler and design elements for the air intakes in the front bumper. It goes without saying that the BRABUS product lineup also features body styling components for the other design and equipment lines of the Mercedes GLA-Class. The BRABUS engineers and technicians have developed LED underfloor lighting for all versions to make getting in and out easier and safer in the dark. It is activated with the keyless remote or by pulling on a door handle. The BRABUS rear spoiler, which mounts to the liftgate, can likewise be used universally on all GLA models.

BRABUS alloy wheels in OEM quality play a crucial role in the exclusive looks of the GLA refined by BRABUS. The spectrum of tailor-made tire/wheel combinations ranges in diameter from 18 to 21 inches. The largest option for the compact SUV features forged BRABUS 9Jx21 Platinum Edition wheels in the two striking Monoblock F and R designs. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires up to size 255/30 R 21 front and back.

BRABUS sports springs lower the ride height of the GLA by about 25 millimeters (1 inch). The lower center of gravity results in even sportier handling. Customers looking for a lifted suspension in the interest of more comfortable ingress and egress as well as further optimized visibility will find a suspension solution specifically designed for them that raises the ride height of the GLA by about 30 millimeters (1.2 in.).

BRABUS also fulfills all kinds of individual requests when it comes to the interior. The lineup of exclusive accessories ranges from two-tone stainless-steel scuff plates with optionally backlit BRABUS logo to matt anodized pedals and door lock pins, to aluminum Race shift paddles. The BRABUS upholstery shop offers even more variety. In line with the customers requests the upholsterers can complete the ex-factory leather interior appointments or craft completely new and particularly exclusive BRABUS fine leather interiors for which they use especially soft yet extremely durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara in any desired color.
