Brabus C-Class

Famed German Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has just released its tuning packages for the latest-generation C-Class equipped with the optional AMG Line from the factory.

The AMG Line can be categorised and distinguished from the ‘regular’ C-Class models through its more aggressive bodykit. Brabus have added to this sense of aggression by installing a new carbon fibre front splitter as well as carbon fibre side skirts. Additionally, a menacing diffuser has been added at the rear alongside a subtle bootlid lip spoiler.

Another important addition are the Brabus monoblock wheels which are available in 18,19 and 20 inch sizes. The 20-inch units measure 8.5 at the front and 9.5 inch at the rear and come with 225/35 tyres at the front and 255/30 tyres at the rear courtesy of either Continental, Pirelli or Yokohama. Brabus also offers new springs for the C-Class AMG Line which have been developed with Bilstein. They lower the ride height by about 30 mm and work with the OEM shocks.

Additionally, Brabus has released more details about its selection of engine upgrades for petrol powered four-cylinder C-Class variants. Starting with the Mercedes-Benz C180, its four-cylinder engine has been fettled up from 156 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque to 177 hp and 221 lb-ft. As a result, the car now hits 100 km/h in 8.4 seconds and a 230 km/h top speed. As for the C200, its four-cylinder turbo has been uprated to now deliver 221 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque and consequently accelerates to 100 km/h in 7 seconds and tops out at 242 km/h.
