BRABUS has revealed its exclusive tuning program for the second generation Mercedes CLS-Class. Making its world debut at the Geneva Motorshow, the wind tunnel tested kit features a front spoiler mounted to the OE front bumper, restyled air vent with fitted LED daytime running and sport fenders with side gills. The rear end gets a spoiler and a custom fitted lower rear bumper apron to accommodate the four tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust system. The rear update is rounded out with a centrally mounted reflector.

Suspension tuning is available at several levels from a set of height lowering sport spring (by 30mm) to a complete suspension upgrade with adjustable dampers all around. CLS models equipped with the semi-active AIRMATIC air suspension system can be lowered by some 35 millimeters with the BRABUS suspension module. BRABUS Monoblock wheels are available in sizes ranging from 8.5Jx17 to 10.5Jx20 in six different designs.

Moving on to the performance upgrades, the CLS 250 CDI BlueEfficiency model equipped with BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D4 performance kit delivers an additional 31 bhp with a peak torque of 560 Nm. For the CLS 350 CDI BlueEfficiency, BRABUS offers the ECO PowerXtra D6S plug-and-play auxiliary control unit which can be installed in less than 45 minutes. In 'Eco' mode, only peak torque is increased from 620Nm to 690Nm between 1600 to 2400 rpm while maximum power output remains unchanged. In 'Sport' mode, power output is increased to 309bhp @ 3600rpm, in addition to the increased torque. In this setting, the CLS 350 CDI performs the century sprint in just 5.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.

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.
