Mercedes-Benz M-Class W166 has received a full tuning package from the famous tuning company – Brabus. The big SUV comes with complete aerodynamics package, performance upgrades and interior modifications.

The exterior boasts a new spoiler for the front bumper of the sport version and attachments for the air inlets in the front fascia. There are also new sill skirts and BRABUS lettering in the fender attachments. At the rear, the tuner installed BRABUS On Road rear fascia that is available in two versions. Depending on the type of engine the rear fascia comes with a cutout on the left or with a cutout on either side to provide the perfect backdrop for the BRABUS dual or quad sport exhaust system. A BRABUS rear spoiler that attaches to the liftgate will be available in the near future. The entire appearance package is manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade Pur-R-Rim plastics.

The big vehicle stands on BRABUS Monoblock wheels with diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches. The largest are 10J x 22" in three different designs as Monoblock VI, E and Q wheels. They are fitted with 295/30 ZR 22 tires front and back from either Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.

The suspension is also upgraded – a set of sport springs for a ride-height lowering by some 30 mm. For M-Class vehicles with AIRMATIC air suspension the BRABUS suspension engineers have developed a custom control module that lowers the ride height of the SUV by some 30 to 40 mm.

You can also opt for a high-performance brake system. It consists of 6-piston aluminum calipers with vented and cross-drilled discs measuring 405 x 34 mm for the front wheels and 4-piston fixed aluminum calipers and brake discs measuring 380 x 28 mm for the rear wheels.

The performance is boosted by the BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D6S module for the direct-injection engine. It adds 70Nm (52 lb-ft) and 48PS (35 kW) to the ML 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC. From 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.0 seconds and a top speed of 229 km/h (142 mph).

Finally, the interior can be exclusively ordered with bi-color stainless-steel scuff plates with backlit BRABUS logo as well as matte-anodized aluminum pedals, door-lock pins and foot rest are part of the refinement repertoire as are exclusive BRABUS interiors masterfully crafted from a combination of the finest Mastik leather and Alcantara. In addition, there are exotic-wood and carbon-fiber trim sets in any desired color and with a variety of surfaces from open-pored and matte to high-gloss finishes.
