THE DEFINITIVE COMBINATION OF LUXURY AND PERFORMANCE
The BRABUS 500, based on the Mercedes-Benz S 500 4MATIC, has been designed to keep and build upon the significant legacy of the S-Class. This impressive BRABUS package is defined by an upgraded engine configuration producing a power output of 368 Kw / 500 hp and a top speed of 250 km / h as well as several exterior touches enhancing both the looks and the aerodynamic efficiency of the model. In combination with the zenith of interior luxury and comfort, the BRABUS 500 is in a league of its own, underlined by character and individuality!
Design and determination
Changes as well as improvements to the BRABUS 500’s exterior are most notably defined by a custom aerodynamic-enhancement kit underlined by a range of signature BRABUS elements, implemented precisely around the bodywork to complement the resolute power of this high-end limousine. Key features such as the custom BRABUS front spoiler and re-designed side air intakes in the front bumper give the car a more dynamic character while improving the overall aerodynamic efficiency by reducing front-axle lift. Additionally, the sporty-styled rear bumper insert, integrated LED side markers as well as the distinctive black chromed tailpipe ensure this luxurious powerhouse stands out on the streets, easily distinguishable by the hallmark BRABUS design.
Integrated into the sophisticated six-cylinder compression-ignition engine of the BRABUS 500 is the new BRABUS B50 – 500 PowerXtra module. This raises the power output of the S-Class from its standard configuration of 320 kW / 435 hp to an impressive 368 kW / 500 hp (429 hp to 493 bhp), with peak torque increasing to 590 Nm (435 lb-ft). Thanks to several improvements such as custom injection and ignition mapping as well as an increased boost pressure, this unique power cruiser accelerates from 0 - 100 km / h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 250 km / h (155 mph). BRABUS has used dual-personality design approach and several different driving modes, creating a BRABUS that provides superior performance for any occasion!
