Mercedes-Benz tuning specialist Brabus presented a new ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit for the S350 BlueTec and claims to have created the world’s first tuned diesel-powered car that meets the Euro 6 emissions standard.

Scheduled to be offered in 2014, the kit is available for both rear-while drive and 4MATIC four-wheel drive variants and boost output to 313 bhp and 690 Nm of torque respectively. Designed to work like a plug-and-play device, the module increases the 3.0-liter V6 diesel’s output according to the selected shift mode of the 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission. In “Eco” mode, peak torque increases, but the engine output remains unchanged at 258HP. While in “Manual” or “Sport” mode maximum, power is also boosted. The tuned Mercedes limousine performs the century sprint in 6.5 seconds and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. The customer can also specify their tuned machine with a custom Brabus 4 piped stainless-steel exhaust, delivering a more distinctive exhaust note and further optimizing power yield.

The Brabus ECO PowerXtra D6S unit can also be fitted to all Mercedes E350 CDI BlueEfficiency variants as well as the CLS 350 CDI BlueEfficiency model, delivering identical outputs. All models come with a three-year or 100,000 km warranty.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
