Mercedes GLK by BRABUS

The German model Mercedes GLK received a tuning program from aftermarket specialists from Brabus. The program includes performance tuning for all engine variants, gasoline and diesel, one-piece and multi-piece wheels with matching suspension solutions, sporty yet elegant body components and exclusive interior options. The turbo model GLK 320 CDI 4MATIC Brabus receives the ECO PowerXtra D6 tuning that provides extra 48 horsepower and a maximum torque of 590 Nm. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and to reach a top speed of 228 km/h. The gasoline V6 engine features the Brabus B7 power kit gains 15 horsepower for a new rated power of 287 horsepower. If you want more, the tuners also offer the Brabus 4.0 displacement engine capable of developing 332 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. This new output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. All engines offered by the tuner are lubricated exclusively with ARAL high-performance motor oil. The face of the SUV receives a dynamic upgrade with the Brabus front apron. This component was developed in the wind tunnel and features daytime running lights as well as optional auxiliary high beams and fog lamps. The new tailpipe styling is a key to the striking rear appearance of the customized SUV. The Brabus roof spoiler with its red LED position lights left and right is attached to the lift gate. For even more agile handling and a ride height lowered by some 35 mm, the tuner offers either sport springs or a complete suspension that offers a somewhat firmer ride that the production one. The extensive program also offers owners of a Mercedes Benz GLK countless individual options in terms of interior.
