The German tuner from Bottrop has rolled out four tricked-out diesel-powered Mercedes models.
Brabus has revealed its latest program, dubbed the Power Diesel Special Editions. The range oil-burning performance models from the Mercedes tuning specialist pack exclusive features and loads of torque. Each has its own set of unique characteristics such as new alloys and bodykits, but the common denominator in each case is the Brabus D6S Power Diesel engine, tweaked to deliver up to 308 horsepower and a massive 509 pound-feet of torque.
The Brabus E 350 CDI comes with or without the tuner's bespoke aerodynamic kit, and includes a stainless-steel quad sport exhaust system, Brabus sport springs and 19-inch Monoblock F wheels. The two-door coupe can sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.9 seconds and reach an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph. The new Mercedes CLS 350 CDI Shooting Brake manages similar figures as the E-Class Coupe, while riding on 19-inch cross-spoke alloys. It comes with a lowered suspension, a stainless-steel sport exhaust and a sporty Brabus bodykit.
Exclusive equipment on Brabus' third diesel model, the ML 350 CDI, includes bi-xenon headlights, the COMAND system, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, panoramic roof and backup camera. With 304 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque on tap, the all-wheel-drive luxury SUV sprints from standstill to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds and hits a top speed of 142 mph. It rides on 20-inch Monoblock R alloys and gets a lowering module for the standard-spec air suspension, while the interior boasts backlit Brabus scuff plates, velour floor mats, and aluminum pedals and door-lock pins.
Finally, Brabus offers a Power Diesel program for the Mercedes GL 350 CDI, giving it 306 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque and the ability to hit a 140-mph top speed. The package also includes a stainless-steel twin sport exhaust system, 22-inch Monoblock Q alloys, a ride height lowering kit, and custom interior with features such as steering wheel-mounted aluminum shift paddles. Prices range from 53,879 Euros for the E Class Coupe to 81,810 Euros for the GL 350.
