BRABUS presents the exclusive refinement program for the new Mercedes V-Class, which implies powerful engine tuning, an exclusive appearance package, tailor-made wheels and an individual entertainment concept. A sporty-elegant design is the trademark of the BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement kit for the new Mercedes V-Class and Vito. All components are manufactured from PUR in OEM quality, giving them a precise fit and making them easy to paint. The kit includes a front spoiler, attachments for the side air intakes, a three-piece fairing for the rear bumper, and quad exhausts.
The appearance is further enhanced by Brabus’ Monoblock alloy wheels which come in four different designs and with diameters of 18 and 19 inches. o improve active safety of the new multi-purpose vehicle further without compromising the ride quality, the 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 (.6 to 1 inch) depending on the model.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class also gets more power, starting with the PowerXtra D4 performance kit offered for the Mercedes V250 BlueTEC. The plug-and-play module boosts power output of the four-cylinder common-rail turbodiesel engine by 45PS (44hp) and torque by 70Nm (52lb-ft).
The tuned V250 produces a peak torque of 510Nm (376lb-ft) between 1,400 and 2,400 rpm, while peak power increases from 190PS (188hp) to 235PS (232hp). As a result, the minivan sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
Inside, Brabus has appointed the Mercedes-Benz V-Class with a number of new leather components across the seats, areas of the dashboard and the armrests. Of course, Brabus customers are offered a never-ending selection of personalisation options with leather finished in “any conceivable colour” available. Other enhancements include aluminum door-lock pins and pedal pads, as well as scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo.
If talking about entertainment feature, the Brabus V-Class boasts no less than two retractable 15.6-inch LCD screens complete with Apple TV, a BluRay player as well as a DVBT receiver. The system also features Sennheiser wireless headphones, while internet is offered via WLAN router and 4G connection and can be connected with a smartphone or tablet computer. A BRABUS touch pad is stylishly integrated into the C-pillars on either side in the rear. They can be used to open and close the BRABUS power curtains, operate the sliding door or control the screens, reading lamps and the seat heating.
