Brabus updates new-gen Mercedes-Benz C-Class image

Brabus has worked its magic once again, this time on the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The upgrade kit made available for the current Mercedes-Benz C-Class, by Brabus, has received a new front spoiler, a spoiler lip for the trunk lid, the Brabus air intakes on the front bumper, a large insert on the rear bumper, new wheel choices of diameters of up to 20 inches and some other tweaks which should put some distance between the standard and the updated versions.

The gasoline powered C200 will also get an extra 41 HP (30 kW) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) of torque, which helps it sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.0 seconds and up to a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph). There is also the PowerXtra D3 performance kit, which is currently in the final stages of development, available for the C220 BlueTec. This is bumping the output by 50 HP (36 kW) and the torque is jumping to 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, which is basically enough for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration made in 7.1 seconds and a top speed made in 240 km/h (149 mph). No pricing details have been announced yet.
