Release) The BRABUS ‘Business Light’ Concept for the Mercedes
The Mercedes Viano as a sporty multi talent with an interesting
‘Business Light’ concept: BRABUS (www.brabus.com)
makes the van the perfect partner for leisure and business with
custom interior options, powerful engine tuning, exclusive exterior
design and custom-tailored wheels.
BRABUS offers exclusive interiors for the cavernous passenger
compartment of the van. The company upholstery shop custom-tailors
these interiors to the individual customer’s request. Fully leather
interiors made from especially soft and breathable BRABUS Mastik
leather and Alcantara can be created in any color and upholstery
Fetching accessories such as an ergonomically shaped sport steering
wheel with a leather/walnut burl rim or aluminum door-lock pins and
pedal pads add custom highlights. BRABUS also offers scuff plates
with illuminated BRABUS logo and a walnut burl completion set for
dashboard, center console and door panels.
The rear compartment of the van offers numerous choices for
customer-specific individualization. One option is the
transformation of the versatile interior into a movie theater or
concert hall on wheels complete with state-of-the-art multimedia
‘Business Light’ is another development by the BRABUS interior
designers that allows backseat occupants of the Viano to work in a
comfortable environment even while on the move. The installation of
the BRABUS walnut burl table and four power comfort seats in
conference configuration turn the van into a comfortable mobile
conference room and a fully functional office on wheels.
In addition, two electrically deployed 15-inch LCD screens are
integrated stylishly into the headliner. They display the images
from a DVD changer and a digital DVBT TV tuner in stunning detail.
A docking station for a notebook computer is integrated into an
electrically deployed compartment hidden beneath a false bottom. The
computer connects to the internet via UMTS. Numerous handy storage
areas for file folders and office material are integrated throughout
the rear compartment. Additional cupholders and many other
accessories provide maximum creature comfort. Custom-tailored rear
curtains provide privacy for the occupants.
BRABUS also offers powerful engines for the Viano. An extra 38 hp
(38 bhp) / 28 kW of power, an increase in torque by 60 Nm (44
lb-ft), less than 30 minutes installation time and all that backed
by the one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years, up to
100,000 kilometers / 62,000 miles (see BRABUS warranty conditions,
as of November 2006): The ECO PowerXtra D6 (III) performance kit
from BRABUS offers powerful engine tuning for the Mercedes Viano 3.0
CDI. With it the van sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just
8.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 208 km/h (129 mph).
For the top-of-the-line Viano 3.5 model BRABUS banks on the tried
and proven method of increasing engine displacement. The BRABUS 4.0
engine represents an increase in rated power output from standard
258 hp (255 bhp) / 190 kW to 318 hp (314 bhp) / 234 kW and a bump in
peak torque to 410 Nm (302 lb-ft) at 4,200 rpm. The BRABUS-tuned V6
Viano also sets standards for driving performance: The sprint from
rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 7.1 seconds; top speed is 220
km/h (137 mph).
BRABUS also offers a stainless-steel rear sport muffler with two
chrome-plated tailpipes for all Viano models.
The special model Viano V8 from BRABUS is built in small-series
production. BRABUS replaces the standard V6 powertrain of the Viano
3.5 with a new BRABUS 6.1 eight-cylinder displacement engine
complete with a correspondingly strong five-speed automatic
transmission. They both are implanted into the van with almost
The 6.1 engine produces 426 hp (418 bhp) / 313 kW at 5,400 rpm and a
peak torque of 621 Nm (458 lb-ft) at 4,100 rpm. Like all BRABUS
engines it is lubricated exclusively with ARAL high-performance
With a sprint time of 5.9 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) and
an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) the BRABUS
Viano V8 is one of the world’s fastest vans.
On the outside the van sports a sporty yet elegant BRABUS designer
suit. The BRABUS front apron features two round fog lamps and two
Xenon high beams and lends the Viano a more striking appearance. But
that’s not all: Its sophisticated shape also reduces lift on the
front axle for further improved directional stability at high speed.
BRABUS refines the sides with understated fender flares on front and
rear axle as well as with rocker panels that feature integrated LED
entrance lights for safe entering and exiting of the vehicle. The
BRABUS rear apron has a custom-tailored cutout for the
stainless-steel BRABUS sport exhaust.
The stunning looks are rounded out with custom-tailored BRABUS
Monoblock light-alloy wheels. There are several 18-inch options for
the Viano: In size 8.5Jx18 customers can choose from high-gloss
silver-painted BRABUS Monoblock A wheels, the fully polished
Monoblock S light-alloy wheels and Monoblock Q wheels with a
distinctive color combination of titanium-colored background and
fully polished surfaces. Technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA
supply high-performance tires in sizes 245/45 R 18 or 255/45 R 18.
Even more exclusive is the version featuring BRABUS Monoblock Q or S
8.5Jx19 wheels mounted with size 255/40 R 19 tires.
To further improve active driving safety of the multi-use vehicle
without sacrificing ride comfort the BRABUS suspension engineers
have developed special sport springs matched to the production
shocks. They lower the ride height of the Viano with conventional
and with air suspension by some 25 millimeters (1.0 inches) on the
front axle and by some 20 millimeters (0.8 inches) in the rear.
