  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz G500 Brabus B40 - 500

    The German tuner Brabus turns Mercedes-Benz products into even more powerful yet still luxurious monster machines. Usually, Brabus does a fair job of subtly upgrading styling as well. Brabus has gotten its hands on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G500 and done a fantastic job of making powertrain improvements. As far as the looks go, we're not in love. First, the good stuff. Sticking with Mercedes' twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine, Brabus turns up the juice with its own electronic control model that increases output from 416 to 493 horsepower and torque from 450 to 524 pound-feet of twist. Now...

    The mad wrenches at Brabus know a thing or two about taking a modern Mercedes-Benz and twisting the wick until tremendous power figures are produced.

  • 2017 Smart ForTwo Brabus
    Smart ForTwo gets more power thanks to Brabus

  • 2017 Smart ForTwo equipped with Brabus Sports package

    Semi-official Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has developed a range of upgrades for the latest-generation Smart cars. The upgrades, previewed this week at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and previously spied in prototype form, are grouped in a new Brabus Sports package, though unlike similar packages from the German tuner this one doesn’t actually offer any substantial gains in performance. Instead, the package is more about the appearance of the vehicle. Items in the package include a front spoiler, body-colored bumper inserts and 17-inch alloy wheels. It’s not all about show, though, as...

    Brabus To Unleash 850-HP Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG At 2015 Geneva Motor Show

  • BRABUS Mercedes Sprinter Business Lounge

    Vans aren't the most glamorous means of transportation, but there are exceptions to every rule. German Mercedes-Benz tuning firm Brabus has used this week's 2014 Moscow Auto Show to launch its latest project, the Brabus Business Lounge concept. Based on the Mercedes Sprinter van, the Business Lounge is a combination of office, relaxation space and conference room—and is filled from floor to roof with upgrades. Literally the floor, in this case, as Brabus has applied its usual styling touches to the van too, including a set of 18-inch Monoblock-design alloy wheels. There's a completely...

    Brabus To Build New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Pullman?

    Mercedes-Benz is working on an extra, extra-long version of its S-Class sedan that will revive the Pullman name and have a price tag that’s more than double that of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

  • BRABUS program for the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    Brabus Reveals Upgrades For Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

    Brabus E63 AMG Packs A Wallop: 838 HP And 848 LB-FT

    Mercedes Tuner Brabus Tries Its Hand At Classic Car Restoration

    There are many, many companies out there who'll restore a classic vehicle for you.

Among those are Aston Martin Heritage, Ferrari Classiche and Mercedes-Benz Classic...

  • BRABUS Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG

    It's fair to say the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is already fairly brisk. Aside from a few limited-run Mitsubishi Evolution models, it has the highest specific output of any production four-cylinder engine, all-wheel-drive traction and a lightning-fast dual-clutch transmission. MUST SEE: Size Matters 2: The Jumping/Drifting Semi Truck Is Back At Work In New Video The upshot is a 4.4-second 0-60 sprint and 155 mph top speed. But for Mercedes tuner BRABUS, those numbers aren't quite enough. Never one to shy away from inflated power outputs and ludicrous speeds, the high-end tuner has now worked its...
