BRABUS Mercedes W212 E-Class Tuning Program

Brabus specialists have provided a tuning program for the Mercedes-Benz W212 E-Class. The highlights of the modification are the Brabus 6.1 displacement engine capable of generating 462 horsepower for the E550 offered in the US, a sporty and in the same time elegant aerodynamic-enhancement program, light alloy wheels with diameter of up to 20-inch, a high performance brake system and exclusive interior upgrades. For a sportier image, Brabus designers have developed an aerodynamic-enhancement kit manufactured from Pur-R-Rim plastics in OEM quality. The new front apron replaces the production bumper in its entirety. Its shape reduces lift on the front axle and offers the sedan an even more striking face. To improve driving safety the apron comes with LED daytime running lights and auxiliary headlights, depending on customer preferences. The front sport quarter panels made of aluminum improve venting of the wheel houses. The integrated lateral carbon fiber air outlet adds a sporty flair. The rocker panels feature integrated LED entrance lights for added style and utility. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have provided 17 to 20-inch light alloy wheels covered in Pirelli and Yokohama tires measuring 245 / 30 ZR 20 on the front axle and 285 / 25 ZR 20 on the rear one. The Germans have also provided a special control unit for the AIRMATIC air suspension that matches the conversion to high-performance tires. The impressive results of the conversion lead to a 462 horsepower and 615 Nm of torque output. The tuners have turned their attention towards the interior as well. the list of available accessories ranges from stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo to ergonomically shaped sport steering wheels to exclusive Brabus fully leather interior made from a combination of soft, durable Mastik and Alcantara leather.
