Brabus has revealed their brand new tuning plan for the re-designed Mercedes SLK.

On the design front, the design can be outfitted with a front lip spoiler, decreasing springs (which reduce the ride height by thirty millimeters) and a variety of wheels in sizes from 17- to 20-inches.   Away back, there’s a trunk-mounted spoiler, a rear diffuser and a four-tailpipe sport exhaust program.

Inside, clients may order aluminium pedals, stainless-steel scuff plates and Mastik leather-based or Alcantara upholstery.

The four-cylinder motors can be designed with ECO PowerXtra CGI auxiliary manage modules which are “custom-tailored to each respective motor version and can be set up by any official Mercedes-Benz seller in less than an hour thanks to their ‘plug and play’ design.” It enables the SLK 200 BlueEFFICIENCY to produce 209 PS (154 kW / 207 hp) and 280 Nm (206 lb-ft) of torque – {an increase|a rise} of 26 PS (19 kW / 25 hp) and 30 Nm (22 lb-ft).

On the other hand, the SLK 250 BlueEFFICIENCY produces 230 PS (169 kW / 226 hp) instead of the standard 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp). An optional intercooler and wastegate valve can raise the output to 240 PS (176 kW / 236 hp) and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque, which enables the roadster to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 248 km/h (154 mph).
