The BRABUS Sport Program for the New C-Class
Concurrent with the market introduction of the new Mercedes-Benz
(www.brabus.com) presents an
exclusive sport program for the new sedan. Highlights of the product
lineup are the BRABUS 4.0 displacement engine with 332 hp / 244 kW
for the V6 gasoline models, an elegant aerodynamic-enhancement
program, light-alloy wheels with 20-inch diameter and corresponding
suspensions, plus numerous individual interior options.
BRABUS is world-renowned for its powerful yet clean-burning
displacement engines, lubricated exclusively with ARAL motor oil.
All tuning components and conversions are backed by the

kilometers (see BRABUS warranty conditions as of June 2003).
For the new C 280 and C 350 models BRABUS offers its BRABUS 4.0
engine. By installing a special crankshaft and larger pistons
displacement is increased to 4.0 liters. Additionally the four-valve
cylinder heads are optimized for gas flow, and fitted with special
camshafts. The conversion further includes a stainless-steel
high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts, and newly
programmed engine electronics.
The impressive results of the conversion are a maximum power output
of 332 hp / 244 kW and a peak torque of 420 Nm at 4,200 rpm. Thus
equipped, the four-door delivers excellent performance: Just 5.9
seconds pass from 0 - 100 km/h, top speed is 275 km/h in combination
with the BRABUS Vmax-Unit.
For the CDI models of the new C-Class BRABUS offers its PowerXtra
performance kits. The list starts with the D2 (III) kit that
increases power output of the C 200 CDI by 39 hp / 28.7 hp, and
bumps peak torque to 385 Nm. The C 220 CDI with BRABUS D3 (III) kit
delivers 195 hp / 143 kW of power and 450 Nm of peak torque. For the
top-of-the-line turbodiesel model C 320 CDI there is the D6 (III)
power kit. It delivers 48 hp / 35.3 kW of additional power and a
peak torque of 590 Nm, turning the new C-Class into one of the
world’s sportiest diesel-powered cars with a 0 – 100 km/h time of
just 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h.
BRABUS stainless-steel quad sport exhaust systems are available for
all engine variants.
More dynamics for the new C-Class also come from custom-tailored
BRABUS tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 17, 18, 19 and 20
inches and corresponding BRABUS sport suspensions, lowering kits and
sport sway bars. The largest wheels for the new C-Class are BRABUS
Monoblock VI, E and S light-alloy wheels in size 9Jx20 front and

20 on the rear axle.
BRABUS high-performance brake systems are available for the W 204
model series in two versions and offer maximum stopping power and
The BRABUS design team also went into the wind tunnel to develop
aerodynamic-enhancement components that not only look great but also
offer maximum aerodynamic efficiency. All parts are manufactured
from high-quality PUR-Rim in OEM quality.
The sporty styled BRABUS front spoiler lends the C-Class a more
characteristic appearance with its generously dimensioned air inlets
for improved supply of cooling air for radiators and front brakes.
It also minimizes lift on the front axle, thus improving directional
stability at high speeds. Four integrated auxiliary headlights
further optimize active safety. BRABUS offers a three-piece rear
spoiler that serves as its aerodynamic counterpart in the rear.
Strikingly styled BRABUS rocker panels create perfect aerodynamic
transitions between front and rear wheel arches. The panels are
optionally available with integrated LED entrance lights. For the
outside mirrors BRABUS offers custom-tailored carbon-fiber covers.
The new BRABUS rear apron with one cutout left and right for the
sport exhaust rounds out the exclusive appearance.
BRABUS also enjoys a great reputation worldwide for exclusive
interior design: For the new C-Class the company-own upholstery shop
handcrafts exclusive interiors from especially soft and breathable
BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara with utmost precision. The
BRABUS program also includes a wide array of individual accessories
for the interior. The lineup ranges from an ergonomically shaped
sport steering wheel to aluminum foot pedals and 330km/h
speedometer to stainless-steel door sills with illuminated BRABUS
logo to precious-wood and carbon-fiber trim sets.
