A 410 HP Mercedes C 450 AMG or Mercedes-AMG C 43. This is the latest creation from Brabus. Following the rumours that speculated that Mercedes is ditching the AMG Sport Line, the German tuner mentions the Mercedes-AMG C 43, a model that is on its way to the Geneva motor show.
As suspicious as it may sound, this is what Brabus calls an upgrade for the Mercedes-Benz C450/C 43. A bit too early, if you ask us, but this is just too much to be a simple coincidence, since the work was done before the Mercedes-AMG C 43 was even confirmed!
The upgrade comes up with extra 43 HP (a coincidence again?) and 50 Nm of torque, added to the original 367 HP and 520 Nm of the biturbo V6 heart beating under the hood. This runs all the way up to 410 HP and 570 Nm, figures that would make just about any sedan out there jealous. The tuning procedure kept the 7G-Tronic automatic transmission still intact. According to the tuner’s statement, the upgraded sedan can now run the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) distance in 4.6 seconds, by 0.2 seconds faster than the previous performance.
The Brabus C 450 or C 43 is equipped with 19-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, a brand-new and aggressive front spoiler and an air-diffuser which is just as new. A sport exhaust system will tune up the exhaust soundtrack.
Pictures reveal a highly customizable interior. The option list would include aluminium pedals and scuff plates with the black-lit Brabus logo. The black leather upholstery with alcantara and the red top-stitching is not the only color combo offered, since the Germans are ready to comply with just about any requirement customers should specify.
