Brabus provides an optical and technical package for Mercedes C Class, while the smaller engines received additional power of 50 HP.
Brabus is rather quick. The tuner from Bottrop already offers a comprehensive technical and optical package for the middle class sedan from Mercedes, even though the new C-Class has barely reached the dealers. The optical package is available both on the entry level grade and on the other two grades – Avantgarde and Exclusive.
A new front spoiler doesn’t only deliver a more striking look, but it also has an aerodynamic function, because it increases the downforce on the front axle. On the Avantgrade grade, the front spoiler can be enhanced with the Brabus air scoops. In the rear, we can notice the small aileron from the trunk lid, the diffuser look alike spoiler and the four exhaust pipes.
Furthermore, Brabus offers wheels package of 18, 19 and 20 inches. 20 inches wheels Monoblock F and R measure 8.5 x 20 in the front and 9.5 x 20 in the back, while the tyres of 255/35 ZR 20 and 255/30 ZR 20 are delievered by Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental. In partnership with Bilstein, Brabus offer sport suspensions with a comfortable-sporty suspenstion and a smaller ground clearance.
The motorizations program contains, for now, adjustments for smaller engines. Thus, for the C 200 petrol engine, Brabus offers the performance PowerXtra B20.2 kit that requires an additional control unit of plug and play engine electronics. Therefore, in order not to affect the reliability, the engine can be pushed to the maximum performance limits, only when all the parameters are accurate, like for example, the temperature of the engine. With Brabus performance kit, the 4 cylinder turbo engine’s power was increased by 41 HP going from 184 to 225 HP, and the maximum torque reaches 330 Nm, with 30 Nm more. Thus, the sedan goes from 0 to 100 km/h in only 7 secunds, reaching 242 km/h.
Soon, the PowerXtra D3 kit will be availabe for C 220 BlueTec’s diesel engine, which increases the power by 50 HP, going from 170 to 220 HP. The maximum torque was also enhanced to 450 Nm, with an additional 50 Nm. Thanks to this package, Brabus C Class reaches 100 km/h in only 7.1 seconds and a maximum speed of 240 km/h. Other kits for more powerful engines are still under preparation. Brabus also provides personalized leather and Alcantara interiors, aluminum pedal box, high quality suede carpets with Brabus logo etc.
