BRABUS Refines the New C-Class Wagon

In time for the market introduction of the new Mercedes C-Class wagon BRABÚS (www.brabus.com) presents an exclusive sport program. The product lineup for the S 204 model series comprises powerful engine tuning for gasoline and diesel models, an elegant aerodynamic-enhancement program, light-alloy wheels up to 19 inches in diameter wîth corresponding suspension modifications, and custom interior options.

For the CDI models BRABÚS offers its BRABÚS PowerXtra kits. They start wîth the D2 (III) kit that boosts power output of the C 200 CDI by 39 hp (28 hp SAE net) / 28.7 kW and bumps peak torque to 385 Nm (284 lb-ft). BRABÚS D3 S tuning in the C 220 CDI model increases power output by an extra 50 hp (49 hp SAE net) / 36.8 kW to 220 hp (217 hp SAE net) / 162 kW. Peak torque is 480 Nm (354 lb-ft).

The top-of-the-line turbodiesel model C 320 CDI adds 48 hp (47 hp SAE net) / 35.3 kW wîth the D6 (III) power kit. Peak torque grows to 590 Nm (435 lb-ft). Thus equipped, the new V6 wagon turns into one of the liveliest diesels on the market: The sprint from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 6.9 seconds, top speed is 250 km/h (155 mph).

For the gasoline-powered V6 models C 280 and C 350 there is the BRABÚS 4.0 displacement engine. Displacement of the V6 engine is increased wîth the help of a special crankshaft wîth longer stroke and larger cylinder bore wîth correspondingly larger pistons. The four-valve heads are optimized for mixture flow and fitted wîth custom camshafts. Newly programmed engine electronics and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system wîth metal catalysts round out the conversion.

The BRABÚS 4.0 engine produces 332 hp (327 hp SAE net) / 244 kW and a peak torque of 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm, giving the five-door excellent performance: The wagon accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds, top speed is 275 km/h (171 mph).

The BRABÚS stainless-steel quad sport exhaust systems – available custom-tailored to each C-Class model wîth or without engine tuning – were developed to further improve power yield.


BRABÚS stands behind the exceptional quality of all its products including engine tuning wîth the one-of-a-kind BRABÚS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to 100,000 kilometers or 62,000 miles (see BRABÚS warranty conditions as of November 2006).

A major contribution to even further improved driving dynamics comes from BRABÚS tire/wheel combinations wîth diameters of 17, 18 and 19 inches and corresponding BRABÚS sport suspensions, lowering kits and sport sway bars, all custom-developed for the new wagon. The largest wheel option features BRABÚS Monoblock VI, E or S light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx19 in front wîth size 235/35 ZR 19 tires. The rear axle is fitted wîth size 9.5Jx19 wheels and tires up to size 265/30 ZR 19.

BRABÚS high-performance brake systems – available in two versions – offer maximum endurance and stopping power on the level of a sports car.

BRABÚS design is synonymous around the globe wîth sporty elegance. The aerodynamic-enhancement kit for the new C-Class wagon continues this tradition. Custom-tailored components that offer excellent aerodynamic properties and precise fit were developed in the wind tunnel.

The BRABÚS front spoiler wîth four auxiliary headlights lends the Mercedes a more striking front. But that's not all: By reducing aerodynamic lift on the front axle the spoiler also further optimizes directional stability.

The BRABÚS rocker panels create an optimal aerodynamic transition between front and rear wheel houses. The rocker panels are optionally available wîth integrated LED entrance lights that are activated wîth the keyless fob or by pulling on a door handle. BRABÚS also offers custom-tailored covers for the exterior mirrors made from exposed carbon fiber.

The BRABÚS components for the rear bumper of the wagon feature cutouts on both sides that frame the two dual tailpipes of the BRABÚS sport exhaust system.

Exclusive BRABÚS interior design adds value to the new C-Class wagon as well. The product lineup includes an ergonomically shaped sport §teering wheel, aluminum pedals and a speedometer wîth 300-km/h dial. In addition there are stainless-steel scuff plates wîth illuminated BRABÚS logo, and precious-wood and carbon fiber trim sets.

Requests for even more customized interiors are fulfilled by the company-own upholstery shop. The upholsterers create exclusive interiors made from especially soft and breathable BRABÚS Mastik leather and Alcantara, perfect down to the last detail.
