Brabus Reveals The First Euro 6 Compliant Performance Kit For Diesels
We all know Brabus for creating pretty impressive performance kits for Mercedes-Benz models. A couple of days ago they announced the new ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit, developed for the S350 BlueTec mode. By doing so, the tuning specialist claims to have launched the world’s very first tuned diesel-powered car that meets the Euro 6 emissions standard which will go into effect three years from now. The kit will be available for both RWD and 4Matic 4WD configurations and will add 55 hp / 52 lb-ft of torque, rounding up the power output to 313 hp / 509 lb-ft.
Brabus designed this kit to work as a plug-and-play device and it will increase the V6 3.0-liter diesel’s output depending upon the selected shift mode of the 7G-Tronic Plus automatic gearbox. While in “eco” mode, the peak torque increases and the engine output remains the same, standing at 258 hp. For “sport” and “manual”, the maximum power is also increased.
With this performance kit, the Mercedes-Benz S350 will do the 0-620 mph sprint in 6.5 seconds, onto a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). The kit can also be installed for the CLS 350 CDI BlueEfficiency as well as the E350 CDI BlueEfficiency, offering the same output.
All of these models are offered with a 3-year / 62,000 miles warranty and can come along with a Brabus stainless steel exhaust that has 4 tailpipes.
