Following updates for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Brabus has released styling and performance upgrades for vehicles equipped ex-factory with AMG body styling. The talented team of designers has developed detachable components, including a sharp front spoiler that fits on the lower part of the AMG Line bumper, a rear spoiler and a diffuser-look rear bumper insert which houses the four chrome-plated tailpipes of the Brabus sports exhaust system.

On the outside, enhancements include the Brabus Monoblock alloys, available in various designs and sizes – 18, 19 or 20 inches. If you’re interestined in better halding, Brabus will provide you with sports suspensions developed jointly with Bilstein, sports springs – which lower the ride height by about 30 mm, as well as a control module that lowers ride height on models equipped ex-factory with Airmatic air suspension.

The tuner also offers several power kits for petrol versions of the C-Class. The C180 received an extra 21 PS (20 hp) with the Brabus PowerXtra B18.2 package, reaching a total output of 177 PS (174 hp). Peak torque is also boosted to 300 Nm (184 to 221 lb-ft), resulting in an improved 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 8.4 seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

The Brabus PowerXtra B20.2 performance kit was developed for the C200, allowing it to benefit from an output of 225 PS (221 hp) and a peak torque of 330 Nm (243 lb-ft). As a result, the Mercedes-Benz C200 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 242 km/h (150 mph). The diesel version will just have to wait for some technical improvements.
