World Debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011 BRABUS Tuning for the New Mercedes CLS Coupe

Sporty-elegant design paired wîth aerodynamic efficiency is the trademark of BRABÚS. For the new CLS body components were developed in the wind tunnel. They are manufactured in OEM quality from flexible high-quality Pur-R-Rim.

The BRABÚS front spoiler is mounted to the production bumper and noticeably reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds. The front can be further upgraded wîth the BRABÚS front apron caps. They feature strikingly styled air inlets and LED daytime running lights, available wîth either dark or chrome surrounds.

The CLS gets a distinctly dynamic appearance wîth the BRABÚS sport fenders. In addition to gills each side also features a horizontal brace wîth illuminated BRABÚS lettering.

The BRABÚS sill skirts give the four-door an even lower, sleeker stance. A useful and
appealing added feature is the set of integrated entrance lights that are activated via keyless fob or door handles. LED lights for safely accessing the trunk in the dark are integrated into the BRABÚS rear apron. Custom-tailored cutouts in the new rear apron provide the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABÚS sport exhaust system. The rear appearance is rounded out wîth a centrally mounted reflector.
The BRABÚS rear spoiler creates a perfect aerodynamic balance and emphasizes the sporty character of the BRABÚS designer suit.

Another important contribution to the exclusive BRABÚS look for the new CLS comes from
the BRABÚS Monoblock wheels in sizes ranging from 8.5Jx17 to 10.5Jx20. The OEM-quality
alloys are available as one-piece and three piece wheels in six different designs.
The most exclusive version features BRABÚS Monoblock VI, E or S wheels in size 9Jx20 in front and size 10.5Jx20 in back. The latest addition to the BRABÚS wheel family is the BRABÚS Monoblock F wheel. Presented initially as a forged wheel it is now also available as a 20-inch cast wheel, which also celebrates its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011.

Vital Stats

7-speed Automatic
On the new CLS this wheel can be mounted in sizes 8.5Jx20 and 9.5Jx20, painted a grey
'Liquid Titanium'shade. The largest tires supplied by BRABÚS technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA for these wheels come in size 255/30 ZR 20 in front and in size 305/25 ZR 20 for the rear axle. Specially calibrated to the use of sporty low-profile tires are the BRABÚS suspension solutions, developed in cooperation wîth technology partner BILSTEIN. The lineup ranges from BRABÚS sport springs for a ride-height lowering by some 30 millimeters (1.2 in.).


Sportier ambitions can be met wîth the BRABÚS complete suspension, which combines the
ride-height lowering wîth firmer but yet comfortable damper settings. CLS models equipped ex-factory wîth the semi-active AIRMATIC air suspension system can be lowered by some 35 millimeters (1.4 in.) wîth the BRABÚS suspension module. BRABÚS offers the world's most extensive performance tuning program for Mercedes-Benz
automobiles. The CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY model equipped wîth BRABÚS ECO PowerXtra D4 performance kit delivers an additional 31 hp (31 bhp) / 22.8 kW and produces a peak torque of 560 Nm (413 lb-ft).

For the CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY BRABÚS offers the ECO PowerXtra D6S tuning kit.
The plug-and-play auxiliary control unit can be installed by any authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer or any BRABÚS competence partner in less than 45 minutes. This high-tech
performance tuning also gives the driver the opportunity to influence power yield via the selected shift program of the 7G-TRONIC PLÚS automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) In 'Eco'mode only peak torque is increased from 620 Nm to 690 Nm (457 to 509 lb-ft)
between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm. The maximum power output remains unchanged. If the 'Sport' mode is selected manually or activated automatically both peak torque and power output are increased. Maximum rated power output then jumps from 265 hp (261 bhp) / 195 kW to 313 hp (309 bhp) / 230 kW at a low 3,600 rpm. Úsing this setting, the tuned turbodiesel model sprints from 0 – 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds. Top speed is limited electronically to 250 km/h (155 mph).

All BRABÚS engines are operated exclusively wîth ARAL high-performance lubricants.
Fully stainless-steel BRABÚS quad sport exhaust systems are available for all CLS engine variants. The precision-calibrated exhaust systems optimize power yield and produce a throaty exhaust note.

Exclusive interior design that meets every customer request is a particular BRABÚS
specialty. The options for the new Mercedes CLS range from appealing accessories to
custom-tailored interiors crafted from especially soft and breathable yet highly durable BRABÚS Mastik leather and Alcantara.

The ergonomically shaped BRABÚS sport §teering wheel is available in a variety of
leather/wood designs. It provides perfect road feedback and ensures a relaxed posture for long-distance driving.

Scuff plates wîth illuminated BRABÚS logo or the speedometer wîth 340-km/h dial (213 mph) add individual highlights as do the distinctly sporty BRABÚS interior accessories: They include aluminum components such as pedal pads, door-lock pins and shifter, and highquality clear-coated carbon-fiber inlays for dashboard and center console. BRABÚS also offers wood trim in any desired color and grain.

The four-door CLS coupe can also be equipped wîth a custom-tailored BRABÚS multimedia
package.
