The Brabus Program for the New Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Concurrent with the start of sales of the new Mercedes S-Class Brabus presents an extensive tuning and accessories program for the new luxury sedan.

Naturally Brabus also offers powerful engine tuning for the new models in the W 221 series, backed by the one-of-a-kind Brabus tuning warranty of three years up to 62,000 miles.

T he Brabus S V12 S Biturbo engine is the pinnacle of powerful engine tuning. Its displacement is increased to 6,233 cc with the help of a custom crankshaft, a larger cylinder bore and forged pistons. The inner workings of the engine are also modified extensively: gas flow in intake and outlet ports of both cylinder heads is optimized, and the engine is fitted with sports camshafts.

The Brabus engine specialists further equip the engine with larger turbochargers, more efficient intercoolers and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with four tailpipes and metal catalysts with low backpressure. Newly programmed engine electronics ensure not only the optimal synchronization of all new components but also contribute to maximum power yield and to meeting all current emission limits.

The Brabus S V12 S Biturbo engine develops a whopping 730 bhp at 5,100 RPM. The peak torque is limited electronically to 812 lb-ft, available from a low 2,100 rpm. Without sacrificing running smoothness the luxury sedan thus turns into a serious challenger for the world's fastest sports cars: 0 - 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, 125 mph after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h) make the sedan with Brabus S V12 S Biturbo displacement engine are truly special driving experience.

Sporty sound and thrilling looks are the main characteristics of the Brabus sport exhaust systems with four tailpipes. The fully stainless-steel exhausts are available for all engine variants of the S-Class.

Brabus also offer custom-tailored designer outfits for the new S-Class. To give the luxury sedan an even more striking face there is a sporty-looking front apron complete with auxiliary headlights. As an alternative the standard front of the S-Class can be refined with the addition of the Brabus carbon front spoiler. Both versions are wind-tunnel-tested and reduce lift at high speeds. There are also custom-tailored auxiliary headlight inserts for the standard front bumper that each house two fog lamps and two high-beams.

The Brabus sill trim and the rear apron, both with integrated LED lights, are as attractive as they are useful. Upon activation via keyless-entry remote or by pulling on the inside door handle five LED lights on either side and in the rear illuminate the ground around the vehicle, making exiting and entering the car and loading or unloading the trunk in the dark safer. The rear apron further features custom cutouts for the four tailpipes of the Brabus sport exhaust. The exclusive Brabus look for the new Mercedes S-Class is rounded out by one-piece or multi-piece Brabus Monoblock light-alloy wheels with 17-, 18-, 19-, 20- or even 21-inch diameter. The largest tire/wheel combination features multi-piece forged and highly polished Brabus Monoblock VI wheels in size 9Jx21 on the front axle and in size 10.5Jx21 in the rear. Extensive driving tests determined Pirelli and Yokohama tires in sizes 255/30 ZR21 in front and 285/30 ZR21 on the rear axle as the ideal counterparts.

The Brabus suspension modules are specially calibrated to these sporty tire/wheel combinations. The modules are available for vehicles with air or ABC suspensions. They lower the ride height of the S-Class by about 1 inch and give it a sporty yet comfortable ride. Brabus also offers three different versions of its high-performance brake systems for the new top-of-the-line Mercedes. The largest version features 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 380 x 36 millimeter vented and perforated discs on the front axle. On the rear axle 355 x 28 millimeter discs and 6-piston aluminum fixed calipers provide ample stopping power. Special flex-steel brake lines guarantee consistently high brake pressure at all times.

Luxury and individuality in the interior is yet another Brabus specialty. The range of products for the new S-Class includes sill plates with Brabus logo, ergonomically shaped safety steering wheels with airbag, and even an exclusive fully leather Brabus interior made from especially soft yet durable Brabus Mastik and the finest Alcantara leathers. The Mercedes S-Class can be further refined with the addition of an exclusive state-of-the-art Brabus multimedia package.
