Continuing to expand their already impressive portfolio of tuning Mercedes-Benz vehicles, Brabus has now introduced an engine tuning program for the new V8 biturbo powerplants from Mercedes, which includes the newest S550 and CL550, S63 and CL63 AMG. Power output from the new performance kits can reach 620-hp and 737 ft-lbs of torque and comes backed with a 62,000 mile warranty.
There are several different stages to Brabus’ PowerXtra CGI performance kits with pricing varying from $7,200 to $8,700. Your choice of kit depends on which V8 biturbo powerplant you’re sporting and is essentially an ECU reflash. In addition, enthusiasts can purchase a Brabus sport exhaust system with exhaust control. With a push of a button, your Mercedes can go from “Coming Home” mode to “Sport” mode.
In addition, further performance can be had with Brabus’ limited-slip differential upgrade. Exterior modifications can also be added to your package with carbon fiber aerodynamic accessories. And of course you can choose to outfit your Mercedes with any of Brabus’ 19- to 21-inch wheels.
