Brabus Widestar 2007

A higher horse powered, better handling and wider version of AMG tuned M-class has been created by BRABUS.This special model, WIDESTAR BRABUS, based on the Mercedes ML63 has made it’s debut at the Geneva Show 2007. Dynamic looks combined with maximum functionality are the main features that characterise the BRABUS WIDESTAR concept.

The BRABUS WIDESTAR body conversion consists of add-on parts for the doors, and rocker panels that create a more homogenous transition between the fender flares. But that’s not all:Complete front and rear fascias replace their production counterparts front and back. The front spoiler bumper with three striking air inlets and four integrated auxiliary headlights lends the M-Class more passing clout and minimises lift on the front axle. In combination with the rear spoiler the rear fascia with integrated diffuser and cut-outs for the four chrome tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system provides the perfect aerodynamic balance.The production V8 engine delivers 510 hp / 375 kW. It is fitted with sport air filters and high-performance metal catalysts as well as newly programmed engine electronics with custom mapping for ignition and injection. Together these measures result in an increase in power output by 40 hp / 31 kW to 550 hp / 404.8 kW. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 630 Nm to 650 Nm. Vehicle performance benefits accordingly: The sprint from rest to 100 km/h is shortened to 4.9 seconds. The engine tuning and installation of the BRABUS V/max unit increase the top speed from 250 km/h to 275 km/h.Safety has also been improved through a high-performance brake system. It features 12-piston aluminium fixed callipers and vented and cross-drilled 380 x 36 millimetre discs on the front axle.And if all the above mentioned characteristics are not enough to convince you of the amazing attributes of the sporty, dynamic, exclusive and powerful BRABUS WIDESTAR, we can go on with describing the exclusive interior options, one of the specialities of Mercedes M-Class:

– Stainless-steel door sills with illuminated BRABUS logo

The production front seats are equipped with special rear consoles that reach all the way to the headrests. They house seven-inch 16:9 LCD screens with integrated DVD player. Also available is a version with an electric folding table made from precious wood.
