BRABUS Tuning for the Updated Version of the new Mercedes E-Class

Concurrent with the market introduction of the newly updated version of the Mercedes E-Class BRABUS (www.brabus.com) already offers an extensive tuning program for all E-Class models.

E 350: A displacement increase of the four-valve engine of the E 350 model to 4.0 liters bumps power output to 332 hp / 244 kW and peak torque to 420 Nm.

E 500: For the new four-valve V8 engine of the latest Mercedes E 500 model the BRABUS engine specialists have developed the BRABUS 6.1 displacement engine. It develops a maximum power output of 462 hp / 340 kW at 6,200 rpm, a peak torque of 615 Nm at 3,100 rpm.

Equipped with this engine the Mercedes E 500 exhibits markedly more temperament. Sprint time to 100 km/h is shortened to 4.8 seconds. In combination with the BRABUS V/max unit that eliminates the standard 250-km/h speed limit top speed increases to 305 km/h.

E 320 CDI: The BRABUS PowerXtra D6 (III) tuning kit unleashes the true power inherent in the V6 common-rail turbodiesel engine of the E 320 CDI – without sacrificing built-in safety reserves.

With BRABUS PowerXtra D6 (III) tuning power output jumps from standard 224 hp / 165 kW to 272 hp / 200 kW at just 3,800 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from normally 540 Nm to 590 Nm. Performance is on a correspondingly high level: The tuned E 320 CDI sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. The new top speed is 250 km/h.

Tyres: The choice of BRABUS tire/wheel combinations for the updated E-Class ranges from one-piece 8.5Jx17 Monoblock A wheels with general certificate to the high-tech version with 9Jx20 wheels on the front axle and 10.5Jx20 rims in the rear. This combination was custom-developed by the BRABUS suspension engineers for the new E-Class and is available with multi-piece BRABUS Monoblock V and VI wheels as well as with the new Monoblock S rims. As optimal tires BRABUS selected high-performance tires from Pirelli and Yokohama in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 in front and 285/25 ZR 20 on the rear axle.

Suspension: Extensive tests were conducted to develop sporty yet comfortable suspension solutions for the updated W/S 211 series. For the four- and six-cylinder models with conventional springs the BRABUS tuning program includes lowering springs or sport suspensions calibrated to the various vehicle weights.

For all air-sprung E-Class models BRABUS offers a suspension module that lowers the ride height of sedan and wagon by some 20 millimeters. BRABUS high-performance brake systems are available for the E-Class in three different versions.

Exterior: BRABUS also offers custom-tailored stainless-steel sport exhaust systems with two or four chromed tailpipes for all engine variants of the new Mercedes E-Class generation.

To add sporty emphasis to the elegant lines of the modified Mercedes E-Class – sedan or wagon – the BRABUS designers have developed an elegantly shaped aerodynamic-enhancement kit manufactured from Pur-R-Rim in OEM quality.

The production front bumper can be upgraded with custom-tailored BRABUS headlight inserts with two fog lamps and two high beams. In addition the designers have developed a front spoiler that reduces lift on the front axle and thus further optimizes directional stability at high speeds.

The BRABUS rocker panels give both body styles a longer, sleeker appearance and offer an interesting additional feature: Pushing a button on the keyless-entry remote or pulling on a door handle activates entrance lights integrated into the underside. They illuminate the ground on both sides of the E-Class for safe entering and exiting of the vehicle in the dark.

In combination with the BRABUS sport exhaust the strikingly shaped BRABUS rear apron, also available for sedan and wagon, rounds out the sporty yet elegant appearance.

Interiors: Luxurious and customized interiors are yet another BRABUS specialty. The list of options includes stainless-steel door sills, ergonomically shaped safety steering wheels with air bag and even an exclusive BRABUS fully leather interior handcrafted from a combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara.

The BRABUS design team has further developed special covers for the backs of the front seats that extend all the way up to the headrests. These consoles are designed to house seven-inch LCD-monitors with 16:9 ratio and an integrated DVD player.
