Currently reading: Brabus tunes the E-Class Coupe
Upgraded engine has more power and torque, dropping 0-62mph time to 4.7sec

Mercedes tuner Brabus has created a more powerful E-Class Coupe.

Based on the most powerful car in the standard product line, the E500, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe Brabus has mechanical and styling updates.

These centre around the engine, which is uprated from 5.5-litres to 6.1-litres, giving it 456bhp and 453lb ft of torque. That gives a 0-62mph time of 4.7 sec and a top speed of 196mph.

The V8 conversion costs 29,000 Euros (£25,500).

Brabus is also offering tuning kits for the E250 CDI Blue Efficiency, which raise power from 201bhp to 229bhp, and for the E350 CDI Blue Efficiency, which boosts output to 268bhp and 435lb ft of torque.

Brabus has also produced a variety of suspension kits, ranging from a lowering kit to a complete height-adjustable coil-over sport suspension system.

Uprated brakes that feature six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 360mm vented and cross-drilled discs on the front axle and four-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear are also on sale.

Brabus cars can also be distinguished by a bodykit, which includes modified bumpers, side skirts and alloy wheels ranging in size from 17-20 inches. Interior modifications include a stainless steel scuff plate and sport steering wheel.
