No AMG treatment for the new E-class Coupe?! It just doesn’t matter anymore because the best of Mercedes tuners , Brabus, has just announced its tuning package for the new E-Coupe and there are quit a lot of power in it! This car started life as an E500 with 338 horsepower, but after the Brabus treatment it is now capable of 462 horsepower and massive torque of 615 nm!
Gaining this much additional power however, was not easy. First they had to drill out the cylinder blocks again to increase engine capacity from 5.5 to 6.1 liters. Same operation had to be done for the cylinderheads to house new sport camshafts. An enhanced crankshaft and a new sport exhaust system and of course some electronic upgrades are other parts of this extreme makeover. As you guess it’s not cheap! the engine package cost you 29,000 Euros.
So the Brabus E-Class coupe goes from zero to hundred in 4.7 second which is about a second faster than the standard E500 and while the stock car has to be happy with top speed only 250 kph, the tuned car goes all the way up to 315 kph!
It’s not just power power power though. Brabus E-Class comes with a nice and discrete bodykit as well. The new front apron features daytime running LED lights and some carbon inserts on the sides of the bumper. Sporty side skirts and modified rear apron with a pair of twin tailpipes are other parts of this aerodynamic kit. The car is also lowered and fitted with big Brabus wheels available from 17 to 20 inch. These wheels which house bigger brakes inside them, look pretty sick in the flared arches of the Eclass coupe.
Brabus also has a power upgrade package for the diesel powered cars. Brabus D4 package boost the power of E250 CDi engine from 204 to 234 hp and cost about 1400 Euros. You can also order their interior package which contains high quality leather upholstery, sport steering wheel, entertainment system and most important of them all, illuminated sills with Brabus logo!
