Brabus’ Mercedes line-up of vehicles continues to heat up with the recent announcement of two new performance packages for the CL500 4MATIC.
Not content with the car’s already robust 4.7-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that produces 435 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque? If so, Brabus has ttwo power upgrades for you to choose from.
The first one is called the ’Brabus B50 - 490’, which consists of a new plug-and-play PowerXtra module that tweaks the engine’s performance capabilities through improved electronics, ignition, injection, and electronic boost pressure control. The modifications result in a car that’s capable of hitting 490 horsepower and 575 lb/ft of torque. Mighty impressive on its own right, yes?
But if you’re still not satisfied with that, Brabus is also offering something a little more powerful in the form of the ’Brabus B50 - 520’, a program that carries all of the features of the 490 while also coming with an additional intercooler. The result is a might 520 horsepower and 604 lb/ft of torque on the CL500 4MATIC.
With all these changes in tow, the CL500 4MATIC will now be capable of hitting a 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds and an increased top speed of 186 mph.
Together with the other Brabus-tuned Mercedes, the S500 4MATIC, the CL500 4MATIC, will be gracing us with our presence at the Essen Motor Show this November.
