World Debut at the 2012 Essen Motor Show: The BRABUS Tuning Program for the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class
Sporty elegance characterizes the BRABUS bodywork program for the new Mercedes A-Class. It not only sets attractive visual highlights, it also further optimizes the car’s aerodynamics. All components are manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade polyurethane.
The BRABUS front spoiler for the AMG Sport equipment line is designed to be attached to the lower part of the fascia. It gives the A-Class an even more dynamic appearance. But that’s not all: The shape of the spoiler was optimized in the wind tunnel and further reduces aerodynamic lift on the front axle. A BRABUS rear spoiler for further reducing lift on the rear axle is under development.
The BRABUS rear-fascia insert for the AMG Sport bumper is shaped like a diffuser. Its custom-tailored cutouts provide the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system.
BRABUS alloy wheels in OEM quality add even more fascination to the new A-Class and give it even more agile handling. For this purpose the BRABUS suspension engineers and test drivers have developed custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations with diameters of 17, 18 and 19 inches.
The largest option for the Mercedes compact class features BRABUS 8.5Jx19 wheels that come in five striking designs: Monoblock E, F, Q, R and S. The BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the matching high-performance tires up to size 255/30 R 19 on the rear axle.
The BRABUS sport springs for the Mercedes A-Class were developed specifically for use with sporty low-profile tires. Extensive driving tests resulted in an optimal symbiosis of sporty handling and a high level of ride comfort. What is more, the ride-height lowering by about 25 millimeters also benefits the car’s looks.
BRABUS offers the world’s largest engine tuning program for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. The top priority in all BRABUS engine developments is the symbiosis of high performance, excellent running smoothness, exemplary eco-friendliness and durability beyond reproach. BRABUS recommends high-performance lubricants from MOTUL. Performance tuning for the gasoline and diesel engines of the new Mercedes A-Class is in the final stages of development.
The fully stainless-steel BRABUS sport exhaust system with two chrome-plated tailpipes on the right and left side of the vehicle is available for all A-Class engines. The exhaust system produces a sporty but never obtrusive exhaust note.
BRABUS also offers numerous refinement options for the interior of the new A-Class. The portfolio includes bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with BRABUS logo, matt anodized BRABUS aluminum pedals and door lock pins.
Especially soft yet extremely durable BRABUS Mastik leathers and the finest Alcantara are transformed by the BRABUS upholsterers into the dream cockpit of the A-Class owner with loving attention to detail. The choice of upholstery color and design is as limitless as the scope of the transformation: The options range from a completion of the ex-factory leather upholstery to an exclusive BRABUS all-leather interior.
