BRABUS Sport Program for the Mercedes SLK

BRABUS is now offering an extensive customization program for the new Mercedes-Benz SLK ranging from custom-tailored wheels, suspension options, performance tuning and exclusive interior design.

To enhance its aerodynamic properties, BRABUS engineers put two front spoiler lips attach on the left and right side of the apron integrated with daytime running lights giving the SLK not only a more striking look but also improve directional stability at high speeds. At the sides it receives BRABUS side sill attachments while at the back it receives BRABUS diffuser and rear spoiler.

The new Mercedes SLK now rides on a set of BRABUS Monoblock wheels painted in Liquid Titanium color with sizes 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 9.5Jx20 on the rear axle. The wheels are wrapped in high-performance tires from Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA in sizes 235/30 ZR 20 on the front axle and 275/25 ZR 20 in back.

And to compensate for these king-sized tires, BRABUS offers a custom-developed suspension which enables the driver to lower the car by some 30mm. Along with the suspension BRABUS also offers various versions of its high-performance brake systems.

The SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY 4-cylinder engine receives BRABUS ECO PowerXtra B20 CGI tuning which improves its output power by 26 hp and torque by 22 lb-ft.

While the new SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY engine can be upgraded in two stages. The first stage is the BRABUS ECO PowerXtra B25 CGI module which improves the engine output from the standard 204 hp to 230 hp at 5,500 rpm. The second stage is the BRABUS ECO PowerXtra B25S CGI module which includes the installation of larger intercooler and an electronically controlled BRABUS sport waste gate valve that significantly increases the output power by 10 hp. The engine can now outputs 240 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and with the overboost function it can sprints from 0-62 mph in 6.2 seconds with a top speed of 154 mph.

BRABUS engineers also installed the Mercedes SLK with BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system with four tailpipes which not only give the car an even more exclusive appearance but also produce an even sportier exhaust note for all engine variants.

And for the interior, BRABUS offers an extensive program which includes attractive accessories such as high-gloss polished stainless-steel scuff plates with BRABUS logo and sporty elements such as aluminum foot pedals and shifter. BRABUS also offers exclusive interiors crafted from especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara.
