BRABUS Tuned-Up the New Mercedes-Benz C-Class
BRABUS, the Dusseldorf, Germany-based high-performance tuning company for Mercedes-Benz and Maybach vehicle models has created a new exclusive sport tuning program for the newly launched Mercedes-Benz C-Class entry level luxury sedan. This will add up to the BRABUS product lineup of tuned up Mercedes models.
The BRABUS C-Class comes with a wide range of BRABUS exterior performance parts to enhance the sporty appearance and driving dynamics of the vehicle. These include
sporty styled BRABUS front spoiler, three-piece aerodynamic rear spoiler, improved air inlets, and BRABUS style rocker panels that creates an aerodynamic change between the front and rear wheel arches. The BRABUS engineering and design team placed the C-Class in a wind tunnel test to develop these high-quality aerodynamic parts. Other exterior highlights of the BRABUS C-Class include auxiliary active safety headlights, LED entrance lights, Mercedes fog light, stainless-steel quad sport exhaust systems, custom-tailored carbon-fiber covers on the outside mirrors, and new BRABUS rear apron. A bunch of available custom-tailored BRABUS tire and wheel packages is included ranging from 17, 18, 19 and 20-inch light alloy wheels, along with performance tires 235/30 ZR 20 on the front and 265/25 ZR 20 at the rear.
Moving on the inside, BRABUS included some exclusive hand crafted interior trims including the soft BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara leather, stainless-steel door sills with illuminated BRABUS logo, and other precious-wood and carbon-fiber trim sets. The ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel and aluminum foot pedals offers an excellent driving atmosphere.
The key feature of BRABUS C-Class is the wide range of engine types offered by the German high-performance tuner. For the new Mercedes-Benz C 280 and C 350 sedans, BRABUS offers a 4.0-liter engine equipped with four-valve cylinder heads and special camshafts. The engine pumps out 332 hp (244 kW) and produces 310 lb.-ft. (420 Nm) amount of peak torque rotating at 4,200 rpm.
