(from Brabus Press
Release) Concurrent with the market introduction of the
new Mercedes CL-Class BRABUS (www.brabus.com)
already presents an extensive and exclusive tuning program.
Engine tuning with up to 730 hp / 537 kW, light-alloy wheels up to
21 inches in diameter and
sporty yet elegant aerodynamic-enhancement parts are on the
available-options list as are a
sport suspension, a high-performance brake system and exclusive
interior appointments. Just
as unique is the BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years up to
100,000 kilometers (see
BRABUS warranty conditions as of June 2003).
The top performance level from BRABUS for the CL 600 is the BRABUS
SV12 S Biturbo
engine. To increase swept volume from standard 5.5 to 6.3 liters the
engine block is reworked
and fitted with a special crankshaft with longer stroke, and with
larger, forged pistons. The inlet
and outlet ports of both cylinder heads are machined for optimal gas
flow further aided by four
The BRABUS engine specialists further equip the motor with larger
turbochargers, a more
efficient intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance
quad exhaust with low-
back-pressure metal catalysts. Newly programmed engine electronics
ensure perfect interaction
of all new components, and contribute not only to maximizing power
yield but also to meeting
strict current emission limits.
The maximum power output of 730 hp / 537 kW at 5,100 rpm represents
a superlative for the
BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo engine as does the peak torque of 1,320 Nm at
2,100 rpm. In the
vehicle peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm.
These extraordinary performance figures make the BRABUS SV12 S coupe
not just one of the
most powerful but also one of the fastest GT's in the world. 0 – 100
km/h in 4.0 seconds, 200
km/h after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed
of 340 km/h speak volumes.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed
automatic transmission. An
optional BRABUS rear locking differential optimizes traction. All
components are operated with ARAL high-performance lubricants.
Engine tuning is also available for the CL 500 model. The options
start with the B8 tuning kit for
an increased power output of 419 hp / 308 kW and culminate in the
BRABUS 6.1 displacement
engine with 462 hp / 340 kW at 6,200 rpm and a peak torque of 615 Nm
at 3,100 rpm.
To add more sporty emphasis to the elegant lines of the new C
216-series Mercedes coupe the
BRABUS designers have developed an aerodynamic-enhancement kit,
high-quality PUR-R-RIM in OEM quality.
The BRABUS front bumper was shaped in the wind tunnel. Its
sophisticated shape reduces lift
on the front axle. The large central air dam optimizes cooling of
engine and front brakes.
Integrated fog lamps and high beams give the car a more charismatic
appearance and improve
active safety through better illumination of the roadway.
The BRABUS rocker panels were designed to optimize airflow along the
vehicle's sides. As a
useful additional feature these panels come with integrated entrance
The bolt-on rear fascia is designed to perfectly integrate the fully
stainless-steel BRABUS quad
sports exhaust into the rear appearance. The sport exhaust is also
available without engine
tuning. The rear fascia also features three LED lights recessed in
the underside of the fascia.
They are activated when the trunk lid is opened and facilitate
loading and unloading the trunk in
the dark. An understated rear spoiler rounds out the sophisticated
Just as important for a customized appearance and for sporty
handling are custom-tailored
wheels. The new CL can be fitted with BRABUS Monoblock light-alloy
wheels in various widths
and designs with 18-, 19-, 20- and 21-inch diameters. The largest
tire/wheel combination for the
C 216 series are BRABUS Monoblock VI and E wheels in sizes 9Jx21 in
front and 10.5Jx21 on
the rear axle. For optimal tires BRABUS selected Pirelli and
Yokohama high-performance tires
in sizes 255/30 ZR 21 in front and 285/30 ZR 21 in the rear.
Specifically matched to this tire/wheel combination is the BRABUS
lowering module for the
standard ABC suspension. It lowers the ride height of the two-door
by some 25 millimeters.
To keep the exceptional performance safely in check at all times the
Mercedes can be fitted
with a BRABUS high-performance brake system. The top-of-the-line
version features 12-piston
fixed aluminum calipers and 380 x 36-millimeter vented and
cross-drilled discs on the front axle.
The rear axle decelerates with 355 x 28-millimeter discs and
six-piston fixed aluminum calipers.
The interior of the new Mercedes coupe offers numerous opportunities
for exclusive BRABUS
treatments. The list of products ranges from door sills with BRABUS
logo to ergonomically
shaped sport steering wheels to an exclusive BRABUS fully leather
interior crafted from
especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and the finest
