This year at Essen Motor Show Brabus will unveil two new models. One is the 700-hp SLS Roadser, and the other is this handsome M-Class.
These days Brabus reserves its high-performance power packages for sporty models and with the more conventional family cars just focuses on economy and green performance. That is the case with the new M Class as well, and that’s why they’ve tuned a diesel version of the car.
The car’s based on the ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC and it gets BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D6S module. That boosts the power from 258 hp (254 bhp) / 190 kW to 306 hp (301 bhp) / 225 kW, and the pea torque from 620 Nm to 690 Nm (457 to 509 lb-ft). This SUV now does 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds flat and can reach a top speed of 229 km/h, while complying with EURO VI emissions.
Visually, the new M-Class gets a classic Brabus body kit with a neat front spoiler, new side sills, and a bespoke rear apron available in two versions. Depending on the type of engine the rear fascia comes with a cutout on the left or with a cutout on either side to provide the perfect backdrop for the BRABUS dual or quad sport exhaust system.
A wide range of 8 to 22 inches Monobloc wheels are available for you to choose from. The car also gets Brabus high-performance brake system. The front axle combines six-piston fixed aluminum calipers with vented and cross-drilled discs measuring 405 x 34 millimeters (16 x 1.3 inches).
And for the interior, bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo as well as matte-anodized aluminum pedals, door-lock pins and foot rest, plus Mastik leather and Alcantara and exotic-wood and carbon-fiber trims are enough to tickle your senses.
