BRABUS Beats AMG to the Punch with 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Another Benz, another BRABUS, another Benz, another BRABUS. And so forth, and so on… But somehow, some way, it never gets old. BRABUS always brings their A-game and their new tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz E550 is rock solid. In this case, they beat AMG to the punch for the E-Series and have boosted the 6.1-liter V8 engine from 382 hp up to 462 hp. The run from 0 to 62 mph takes only 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 191 mph.
BRABUS has also devised a complete aerodynamics package for the Mercedes E550. The front bumper has been replaced by a new one that provides reduced lift along with LED daytime running lights and fog lamps. In addition, new rocker panels and carbon fiber air inlets give the profile a much sportier look. In back, a rear apron with a centrally located rear deflector houses two chrome plated exhaust pipes on each side. BRABUS is offering Monoblock wheels in various sizes starting at 17 inches. The ultimate option provides 20x9s in front and 20×10.5s in rear with matching 245/30 ZR20 and 285/24 ZR20 tires. Brakes come in the form of monster 14.8 inch vented and cross-drilled discs on the front axel with 12-piston aluminum calipers and 14.0 inch discs with six-piston calipers on the rear axel.
