The new Mercedes Benz E Class by Brabus |

This weekend we took the new Mercedes Benz E Class for a test drive and now we’re really happy to see that there’s already a Brabus edition ready. The German tuner has always been known for its top of the line programs for Mercedes cars and the package for the new E is another proof of that. The first that strikes you is the new body kit, manufactured from Pur-R-Rim plastics and which features new Brabus front apron with integrated LED daytime running lights and auxiliary headlights (high beams or fog lamps), Brabus aluminum front sport quarter panels, integrated lateral carbon fiber air outlets, Brabus rocker panels with integrated LED entrance lights, new rear spoiler and air diffuser with chrome-plated tailpipes. The package is completed by a set of Brabus Monoblock light-alloy wheels, available in various designs with size ranging from 17 to 20 inches.

Under the hood, Brabus installed special crankshaft and larger pistons which increased the engine’s displacement up to 6.1 liters, which means it now delivers 462 hp (388 on the production version) and 6,200 rpm and max torque of 615 Nm at 3,100 rpm. This means that the car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and is able to reach a top speed of 305 km/h (191 mph). Brabus has also announced that they’re currently working on ECO PowerXtra performance kits for the CDI BlueEfficiency turbodiesel engines and an ECO PowerXtra BLUE kit for the E350 BlueTec.

The interior is also filled with exclusive elements, such as stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo, ergonomically shpaped sport steering wheel, Brabus fully leather interior made from a combination of Brabus Mastik and Alcantara leathers or custom tailored seatback consoles for the front seats, with integrated 7-inch LCD displays and DVD player.
