Brabus has released a new tuning program for the current generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Available for standard and Avantgarde specifications or models fitted with Exclusive package, the kit features "elegant" aerodynamic enhancements and "tailor-made alloy wheels" with diameters of up to 20 inches. The kit consists of a new front spoiler that minimizes negative lift on the front axle and improves handling at high speeds and a spoiler lip for the trunk lid. The front of the C-Class models with standard-spec or Avantgarde front bumper can be further upgraded with Brabus air intakes. A massive insert for the rear bumper is also available.
A new performance kit for the gasoline-powered C200 will be offered. The four-cylinder turbo engine of the vehicle generates an extra 41 PS (30 kW) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) more torque. The tuned sedan sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.0 seconds and reaches a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph). To retain the engine’s durability and longevity, this tuning kit is designed to only use the performance-enhancing mapping once all parameters such as engine coolant and oil temperatures are in the green.
Now in final stages of development, the PowerXtra D3 performance kit will boost the power of the C220 BlueTEC by 50 PS (36 kW), while the peak torque jumps to 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). The sprint time from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is shortened to 7.1 seconds and the top speed is increased to 240 km/h (149 mph).
