BrabusMercedes 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.

Brabus is really great when it comes into modifying a simple vehicle and turned into classy and sophisticated one, just like what they did on this CL500. Anyway, it’s a good thing that they maintain its efficient engine.

Its V8 engine that can delivers 520 horsepower is absolutely impressive on this sedan and although it only had a simple styling, I must say that it still very striking and satisfying, even its wheel adds more appeal on it.
