2012 Mercedes-Benz ML By Brabus
The German tuner Brabus revealed a few days ago its upgrade kit for the non-AMG 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML. They took the 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC model and fitted it with the ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit. With this upgrade, the SUV delivers 306 hp (225 kW) @ 3,600 rpm and a peak torque of 509 lb.-ft (690 Nm) reached between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm.
Brabus mentioned that the car is now capable of hitting 62 mph from start in only 6 seconds, which is 1.4 seconds quicker than the production model and it is able reach a maximum speed of 142 mph (229 km/h).
This tuning program also brings a new body kit that consists of a redesigned front bumper, spoiler, side skirts, rear spoiler, fender attachments and a rear bumper that houses a diffuser. The car can ride on wheels up to a size of 22 inches, while the Bilstein suspension kit can bring it closer to the ground by up to 30 mm. They also developed a new AIRMATIC suspension kit for the sporty SUV which can lower the height of the car between 30 and 40 mm.
More power requires beefier brakes so the ML by Brabus comes with 6-piston fixed aluminum calipers and vented / cross-drilled discs on the front that measure 16 x 1.3 inches. For the rear wheels it has 4-piston fixed aluminum calipers and 15 x 1.1 inches discs.
