Brabus upgrades the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-CLass

Article by Christian A., on January 1, 2013

Brabus has a new tuning program for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. Brabus gave its exterior an air suspension module (which lowers the ride height by as much as 30mm). Brabus also offers various wheels that are sized from 18 to 23 inches. In addition, customers can also ask for a stainless-steel sports exhaust system and high-performance brakes.

For now, the exterior accessories are limited but the tuning company provides numerous interior options. Buyers can get the Mastik leather and Alcantara upholstery or the exotic wood and carbon fiber trim. It also comes with illuminated door sill plates and a speedometer that could reach 320 km/h (200 mph).

Brabus has offers the ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit for the GL 350 BlueTEC, which results in an engine with an output of 310 HP (228 kW) and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the crossover to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).

Similarly, the GL 500 can be fitted with the B50-520 performance kit that enables the 4.7-liter V8 to produce 521 HP (383 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. The luxury vehicle can then be able to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 275 km/h (171 mph) when equipped with the optional Vmax unit.
