BRABUS Mercedes-Benz E-Class
“BRABUS refines the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class model, with both power enhancements for E200 and E350 models, as well as exterior and interior restyling with additional spoilers, signature Monoblock wheels, and luxurious interior additions. Below is the official press release from BRABUS:” Ed.
Mercedes-Benz continues the long success story of the E-Class with the W 213 model series, and BRABUS presents an exclusive refinement program for the new sedan. The product lineup ranges from engine tuning for the various gasoline and diesel models to sporty-elegant aerodynamic-enhancement components for the different equipment variants. Of course, BRABUS also offers tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock wheels with diameters of up to 21 inches, precision-tuned suspension solutions, and individual options for customizing the interior.
All components come with the one-of-a-kind three-year or 100,000-kilometer/62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® as a matter of course (see BRABUS Warranty terms and Conditions, updated July 2013).
The new E-Class comes ex-factory in several design and equipment lines and thus with two different bumpers for the front and rear. Sporty-elegant styling has been an inimitable trademark of BRABUS for 40 years. In keeping with this tradition, the BRABUS designers developed two tailor-made aerodynamic-enhancement kits for the W 213 model series, both manufactured in OEM quality from PUR for perfect fit and paintability.
The BRABUS styling package for new E-Class models coming off the factory assembly lines in standard specification or with AVANTGARDE or EXCLUSIVE package starts with a front spoiler. This aerodynamic-enhancement component lends the sedan a more distinctive face and reduces lift on the front axle in addition, thereby improving handling stability at high speeds. The front of these W 213 models can be upgraded further with dynamically sweeping BRABUS surrounds for the side air intakes.
The BRABUS rear bumper insert with diffuser look lends the rear a sportier appearance. Two cutouts on the left and right provide the perfect backdrop for the BRABUS quad sport exhaust.
The understated BRABUS rear spoiler for the trunk lid fits all current E-Class sedans and thanks to its sophisticated shape reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds.
Of course, BRABUS also offers tailor-made bodywork components for upgrading the new E-Class sedans ordered ex-factory with AMG Line exterior. The markedly sportily styled BRABUS front spoiler attaches to the lower part of the AMG Line bumper. The outer sections of the aerodynamic-enhancement component are shaped like flaps, giving the vehicle an even more dynamic appearance. Vertical BRABUS surrounds for the outer air intakes also play a part in making the front of the refined sedan more distinctive.
Another sporty BRABUS design element is the diffuser for the rear bumper. This aerodynamic-enhancement component forms the perfect backdrop for the four chrome-plated tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust. What is more: The three vertical fins in the central diffuser duct also optimize the airflow.
BRABUS Monoblock alloys, which are available in various designs and versions with diameters from 18 to 21 inches, are just as important for an individual appearance. The largest available option for the new E-Class features forged BRABUS Monoblock F, R or Y “Platinum Edition” hi-tech wheels of sizes 9Jx21 on the front axle and 10.5Jx21 at the rear. They can be mounted with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires of sizes 255/30 ZR 21 at the front and 295/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.
BRABUS developed various suspension solutions ranging from sport springs for a ride-height lowering by about 30 millimeters (1.2 in) to a special control module for models equipped with AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension to match the conversion to high-performance tires.
