    Mercedes GLK by BRABUS​


    Tuning firm Brabus is preparing a set of styling and performance add-ons just in time for the launch of the Mercedes GLK.

    The big news comes from reworking the GLK’s engine range in order to produce more power and torque. The range topping GLK 320 CDI 4MATIC BRABUS features ECO PowerXtra tuning which produces an additional 48 hp and 590 Nm of torque. 0-62 mph takes just 6.9 seconds and allows it to reach a top speed of 142mph.

    GLK 350 4MATIC owners can equip their vehicle with the BRABUS B7 power kit which produces an additional 15 hp for a total of 287 hp. Available on both the GLK 350 and 280 is the BRABUS 4.0L engine which produces 332 hp and 420 Nm of torque, allowing it to reach 62 mph in 6.1 second and a top speed of 155 mph.

    Brabus has also developed an extensive range of body components meant to put the sport back into sport utility. Up front is a Brabus apron which features daytime running lights and optional auxiliary high beams and fog lamps. A two piece roof attachment that features integrated LED position lights is also available. The rocker panels feature integrated LED lights which illuminate the ground to ease exit and entry at night. The rear apron features a centrally located reflector and cut outs for the stock exhaust or the optional BRABUS quad sport exhaust system.

    In terms of handling, the new Brabus GLK will be offered with wheel sizes from 17-21” in a variety of different designs. To lower the ride 35 millimeters a set of sport springs should do the trick, but if you want to ratchet things up a bit Brabus offers a complete suspension for a firmer ride.

    For the interior, Brabus offers a wide range of accessories including stainless-steel scuff plates with an illuminated BRABUS logo, an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel, and interior trim sets in either wood or carbon fiber. Owners with kids might want to select the company’s front seatback mounted consoles which hold a 7-inch LCD screen and an integrated DVD player.

    Saw and drove the W204 GLK last week, 280 petrol 4 matic, it's really nice! Drove very nicely and looks great. It is after all, a C class. I Think it will sell well. Not getting why people think it's ugly??

    The back end looks like the modern mini.

    Is it as big as a C-class?

    I just think it crazy to have a Brabus coversion on a 4x4 that has the aerodynamics of a barn door:D :devil:

    If we want AMG\Brabus performance then what about getting something slightly more slippery:)

    Doesn't look very nice, although it might look a bit better in any other colour than white.
