2012 Mercedes SLK Brabus Sport Program Released

With every new Mercedes-Benz refresh on an existing model, one can expect Brabus to not be far behind with a tuning package for it. The tuners at Brabus got to work quickly on the new-generation SLK, releasing both a styling package and power package for various SLK models.

For the SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY, Brabus’ ECO PowerXtra B20 CGI performance kit will add 26-hp and 22 lb-ft of torque. For the 250 BlueEFFICIENCY model, the B25 CGI performance kit will add similar gains. An additional 10-hp can be found on the SLK 250 thanks to a larger intercooler and an electronically-controlled sport wastegate valve.

The B25S CGI kit, offered for the SLK 250, will bring horsepower to 240-hp and torque to 273 lb-ft, giving it a 0-62 mph time of 6.2 seconds and a stop speed of 154-mph.

For the outside, Brabus has outfitted the SLK with new front spoiler lips, LED daytime running lights, side sill attachments, a rear diffuser, a trunk lid spoiler, and a center-mounted rear reflector. A stainless steel exhaust system with quad-tips can also be had, giving the car a sportier note. For those looking for interior modifications, Brabus offers high-gloss, polished stainless-steel scuff plates with the Brabus logo alongside aluminum pedals and shifter. Custom requests for upholstery with Brabus Mastik leather and Alcantara are also available.
