Brabus upgrades the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

Just in time for the upcoming winter season, Brabus has prepared a modification package for the all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz CL and S500 models. Aside from the custom exterior package, the power is boosted and the standard speed limiter is removed. Brabus will unveil these two cars at the Essen Motor Show, comparable to the SEMA of Germany.

The 435-hp, 4.7-liter V8 is used as standard on the CL and the S500. Furthermore, the Brabus B50-490 engine tuning makes use of the PowerXtra module, which remaps the ignition and the electronic boost-pressure control. Its output has been increased to 490 hp while its peak torque rises to 575 lb-ft.

These features are also present on the B50-520 package but the output is 520 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. Upon integration with the B50-520 kit, the Brabus Vmax unit could reach a speed of 186 mph after the speed limiter that sets the speed at 155 mph is removed. This means that a Brabus speedometer with a 220-mph dial would have to be installed.

Three years after the Mercedes-Benz CL was introduced, it is given a mid-cycle facelift boasting of numerous aesthetic improvements. The CL was fitted with a huge two-door with lightly altered bumpers and it also got new LED daytime running lamps, reshaped headlamps, a more contoured hood, larger exterior mirrors with integrated indicators and revised tail-lamp lenses.

However, the major revisions are found under the hood. The model is offered with a new twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter V8 direct-injection gasoline engine. This is the first of Mercedes-Benz's advanced MoVe powerplants that were designed to improve the efficiency of the range. The new engine has an output of 429 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

As you may know already Mercedes-Benz unveiled the new 2011 CL-Class Facelift few weeks ago and made quite a buzz. What you didn't know is that the new car will boast two new safety features based on state-of-the-art radar, camera and sensor technology. Dubbed Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, the new technologies will help drivers avoid danger through corrective braking.

The 2011 CL-Class which will make its debut in fall 2010, will also introduce new features such as ATTENTION ASSIST, PRE-SAFE Brake with automatic emergency braking, and Night View Assist PLUS with Pedestrian Detection.

Regarding the Active Lane Keeping Assist, for those who don't know what this system does for the driver we will explain it a little here: using a multi-purpose camera mounted in the windshield and a computer that analyzes the images, Active Lane Keeping Assist recognizes lane markings and alerts the driver by simulating rumble strip vibrations in the steering wheel (via an electric motor) if the car drifts from its lane unintentionally.
