BRABUS Mercedes M-Class (W 166 Series)

Brabus has released its new exclusive, unique and ecofriendly (EURO VI emission standards compliance) version of the new Mercedes-Benz W166-Series M-Class featuring a sporty and elegant aerodynamic kit, custom-tailored wheels, engine tune-up, sport exhaust system, and outstanding interior designs with one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers/62,000.

For the visual refinements, Brabus provides the new M-Class with high-grade Pur-R-Rim elements which include a new “On Road” front spoiler and air inlets attachments for more aggressive front, new sill skirts for longer and sleeker stance, and a choice of two “On Road” rear fasciae depending on the type of engine.

Furthermore, adding up more exclusive appearance are the custom-tailored Brabus Monoblock wheels with diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches and in three different designs; the Monoblock VI, E and Q wheels. These lightweight forged alloy wheels with five double spokes are wrapped with Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA high-performance tires with size of up to 295/30 ZR 22 front and back.

Brabus coupled these king-size wheels with new sport springs developed in partnership with Bilstein which enables the driver to lower the ride by some 30mm. But for M-Class vehicles with AIRMATIC air suspension the BRABUS suspension engineers have developed a custom control module that lowers the ride height of the SUV by some 30 – 40mm.

For the V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine of the ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC the Brabus engine specialists have developed the Brabus ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit that falls into the same EURO VI emissions class as the production car. The Brabus ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit increases the peak torque from standard 457 to 509 lb-ft between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm. While the maximum power output jumps from 258hp to 306hp at just 3,600 rpm. This enable the new M-Class to sprint from 0-62 mph in just 6 seconds, 1.4 seconds faster than the production car and with a top speed of 142 mph.

To keep the engine cool, it is accompanied with custom-calibrated stainless-steel sport exhaust systems with two or four distinctive BRABUS tailpipes. While providing great stopping power is a high-performance brake system with six-piston fixed aluminum calipers with vented and cross-drilled discs measuring 405 x 34mm at the front and four-piston fixed aluminum calipers and brake discs measuring 380 x 28mm at the rear axle.

Lastly Brabus also offers exclusive interior options for the new M-Class, the interior is masterfully crafted from a combination of the finest Mastik leather and Alcantara. Other amenities include bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo, matte-anodized aluminum pedals, door-lock pins and foot rest as well as exotic-wood and carbon-fiber trim sets in any desired color and with a variety of surfaces from open-pored and matte to high-gloss finishes.
