Brabus released details of its tuning program for the new Mercedes A-Class, which includes changes to aerodynamics, wheels, suspension, engine and interior.
The Brabus tuning program will debut at the 2012 Essen Motor Show (December 1-9).
For the bodywork, Brabus offers a front spoiler for the AMG Sport equipment line which gives the A-Class an even more dynamic appearance. The shape of the spoiler was optimized in the wind tunnel and further reduces aerodynamic lift on the front axle. A Brabus rear spoiler for further reducing lift on the rear axle is under development.
Brabus suspension engineers and test drivers have developed custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 17, 18 and 19 inches, with the largest option for the Mercedes compact class featuring Brabus 8.5Jx19 wheels that come in five designs: Monoblock E, F, Q, R and S.
Brabus sport springs for the Mercedes A-Class, developed specifically for use with sporty low-profile tires, provide an optimal symbiosis of sporty handling and ride comfort. The ride-height lowering by about 25 millimeters also benefits the car’s looks.
For the engine department, Brabus offers the world’s largest tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. Output and torque details are not available yet, as performance tuning for the gasoline and diesel engines of the new Mercedes A-Class is in the final stages of development.
There’s also a fully stainless-steel sport exhaust system with two chrome-plated tailpipes on the right and left side of the vehicle.
For the interior, Brabus also offers a series of modifications, including bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with Brabus logo, matt anodized aluminum pedals and door lock pins. Brabus Mastik leathers and Alcantara are also available.
