Transforming a Carrier Van into a Powerful Luxury Van:
BRABUS Refines the New Mercedes Sprinter
Transforming a carrier van into a powerful luxury van: That is the
guideline for BRABUS (www.brabus.com) for refining
the new Mercedes Sprinter. The extensive program comprises powerful
engine tuning, an exclusive appearance upgrade, custom-tailored
lightalloy wheels and interior options that include fully customized
business and multimedia packages.
For the diesel models BRABUS also offers engine tuning backed by the
one-of-a-kind BRABUS Tuning Warranty® of three years up to 100,000
kilometers (see BRABUS warranty conditions as of June 2003). The
PowerXtra performance kits are designed to harmonize perfectly with
the standard diesel particulate filters, and to achieve exhaust
emissions on the identically low level of the production vehicles.
For the 2.2-liter CDI engine of the 215, 315 and 415 CDI models
BRABUS offers its PowerXtra D3 (III) performance kit. The kit can be
installed by any authorized Mercedes- Benz dealer in about 30
minutes, and turns the common-rail turbodiesel engine into a
hightorque power pack. At 2,000 rpm it produces a peak torque of 380
Nm; enough pulling power to easily handle just about any traffic
situation. Maximum power output increases from standard 150 hp / 110
kW to 180 hp / 132 kW at 4,000 rpm.
For the top-of-the-line turbodiesel models Sprinter 218, 318 and 418
CDI BRABUS has designed the PowerXtra D6 (III) performance kit. It
bumps maximum power output to 224 hp / 165 kW and produces a bullish
peak torque of 480 Nm between 1,600 and 2,600 rpm. That makes the
performance-tuned Sprinter – empty or loaded – a prime example for
the kind of elasticity that promotes relaxed driving without
For increasing power of the top-of-the-line Sprinter models 224, 324
and 424 BRABUS offers its proven method of increasing engine
displacement. Displacement of the gasoline V6 engine is increased
from 3.5 to 4.0 liters, which results in an increase in power output
from 258 hp / 190 kW to 310 hp / 228 kW. In combination with a peak
torque that grows from standard 340 to 400 Nm at 4,200 rpm the
BRABUS 4.0 engine delivers plenty of punch in any situation.
BRABUS also offers a stainless-steel exhaust trim with two chromed
tailpipes for the stock exhausts of all engine variants of the new
Striking design is the hallmark of the BRABUS body components for
the Mercedes Sprinter. Custom-tailored headlamp inserts for an
additional high beam and fog lamp left and right give the Sprinter a
more refined appearance and further improve active safety. The
BRABUS designers have further developed a high-gloss upgrade for the
production front bumper.
The BRABUS fender flares add 30 millimeters to the Sprinter’s width
on the front and rear axles, and give the vehicle an even more
bullish appearance. They also make room for BRABUS Monoblock E 8Jx18
wheels that were custom-developed for the Sprinter. The
sporty-exclusive design with nine strikingly styled spokes and
polished drop center is designed to handle the extreme wheel loads
without any problems. The wheels are mounted with Pirelli or
YOKOHAMA high-performance tires in size 255/55 R 18.
BRABUS also offers exclusive appointments for the Sprinter’s
spacious interior, customtailored to individual customers’ requests
in the company-own upholstery shop. Among them are fully leather
interiors crafted from especially soft yet breathable BRABUS Mastik
leather, and attractive accessories such as high-quality floor mats
with BRABUS logo and aluminum
door-lock pins and foot-pedal pads.
The rear compartment of the van offers numerous possibilities for
individual customization. BRABUS can transform it into a comfortable
and exclusive conference room or fully functional office on wheels.
The Sprinter also provides an ideal playground for creating a
multimedia studio on wheels with state-of-the-art entertainment
