Brabus gives the Mercedes-AMG A45 a sweet facelift

Article by Christian A., on July 13, 2017

German high performance tuning company Brabus can turn any of your Mercedes A Class vehicle more powerful, while also making it look more handsome. In this case, they showed us the Mercedes-AMG A45 Facelift.

As you can see, the A45 now comes with a custom rear diffuser, Brabus sports exhaust, and a sweet set of 19 inch Brabus Monoblock R wheels in black and red.

The German tuner has not shared the new performance stats of the Mercedes AMG they have tuned. But the standard model, as we know, has a total of 400 PS and 500 Newton metres (368 pound-feet) of torque, enabling the car to perform the 0-100 kilometers per hour sprint in just 4.2 seconds.

If you think about it, your A45 can be made as quick as the Brabus tuned car with the B45 PowerXtra module. This facelift will lower your car’s acceleration time to 100 kilometers per hour in 4.2 seconds.

On the other hand, the petrol based A180 can be given a 33 PS and 40 Nm (29 lb-ft) bump, while the A250 can get a little more at 34 PS and 35 Nm (25 lb-ft). Furthermore, Brabus can push your A 200 CDI to an extra 29 PS and 50 Nm (36 lb-ft), while another 40 PS and 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) is for the A 220 CDI model.

Brabus was officially registered back in 1977 by two people, Bodo Buschmann and Klaus Brackman, hence the name Brabus, which came from both their surnames. Shortly after, Brackman sold his shares to Bushmann as he did not have interest in running the business or modifying cars.

In the 1990s, Brabus became the largest Mercedes tuner, other than Mercedes AMG, and by 2012 the company had started building its third factory in Bottrop. The tuner specializes in brands like Mercedes-Benz, Smart, Tesla, and Maybach. To be more specific, they have worked on models including: Mercedes-Benz E-Class, G-Class, S-Class, C-Class, Smart Roadster, ForFour, and Maybach. Mercedes-Benz indeed is their specialty having tuned most of their models, if not all.

The company’s main goal is to maximize the engine’s performance through horsepower and torque. They accept cars that customers send to them, or they can purchase the car themselves and tune it before the customers pick it up.

Not only do they give cars a facelift with their bodykits, spoilers and other parts for a cosmetic modification. Brabus can also boost your car’s performance as AMG can modify specific engines for them. With all the modifications you could get, be prepared to shell out a lot of cash too.
