Launched on the European market at the begining of 2014, the current Mercedes V-Class si now ready to receive a more sporty appearance from its house tuner Brabus.
As you would expect, the family car is now more sportier as Brabus desgners have developed attachments for the side air intakes, which can be complemented with auxiliary LED side markers, and a front spoiler that attaches to the lower section of the bumper. The sophisticated shape of this
aerodynamic-enhancement component reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds, further optimizing handling stability. A three-piece fairing was developed for the rear bumper.
Tailor-made Brabus Monoblock alloys come in four different designs and with diameters of 18 and 19 inches. The high-performance tires up to size 255/40 ZR 19 are supplied by technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.
Brabus suspension engineers developed special sports springs calibrated to the production shocks. They lower the ride height of the V-Class by about 15 to 25 millimeters, depending on the model. The engine specialists also developed the PowerXtra D4 performance kit for the Mercedes V250 BlueTEC.
The plug-and-play module boosts power output of the four-cylinder turbodiesel engine by 45 hp and bumps torque by 70 Nm. A peak torque of 510 Nm between 1,400 and 2,400 rpm offers and a total power that rises from 190 hp to 235 hp. The minivan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
