Brabus has long been associated with outrageously powerful Mercedes-Benz vehicles. As part of this association the company has presented what it calls the Widestar tuning kit for the facelifted ML-Class range.

BRABUS is one of the most visible names in the world of tuning. The German company works very well with the Mercedes-Benz brand and this time they have concentrated on the updated M-Class SUV range. Starting at the top BRABUS reworked the new facelifted ML 63 AMG which they now call the BRABUS B63S.

Power has been upped to 550hp (404.8kW) to suit the modified sporty suspension. It takes just 4.9 seconds for the B63S to reach 100km/h from standstill. The B63S wears massive 23-inch forged wheels wrapped in tyres that measure size 315/25 R 23. AIRMATIC suspension lowers the ride height by up to 30 millimeters (1.2 inches) for better on-road handling.

Work has been done on the body too using the BRABUS WIDESTAR body kit. Changes include door trim components, new rear and front aprons, a different front spoiler bumper, a rear apron with integrated diffuser and chrome-plated tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless-steel quad sport exhaust system.

The BRABUS upgrade isn't only limited to the AMG model. Other ML versions are also in line for power gains. The ML 280 CDI for example gains an extra 52hp (38kW), the ML 320 CDI gets bumped up 272hp (200kW) and 590Nm, and for the ML 420 CDI maximum power goes up to 350hp (257kW) and torque is 700Nm. This ML 420 CDI can thus sprint from 0 - 100km/h in 6 seconds.

Petrolheads have not been forgotten. The power kit increases the ML 350's power output to 287hp (211kW) while the ML 500 gets a displacement upgrade to 6.1-litres which takes it to 462hp (340kW).

Interior wasn't left alone either. Several signs point to a very different ML from the standard model. BRABUS logos, exclusive BRABUS full leather interior, carbon fiber components and some of the finest Mastik and Alcantara leathers make the cars stand out even more.
