Brabus Goes Topless with E-Class Cabriolet


We'll say it since everyone's thinking it. Mercedes-Benz is really milking this generation E-Class for all it's worth. First the sedan was released to much praise; then the coupe comes out and everyone rejoices, and now the cabriolet. But who benefits more from Mercedes-Benz's continual segmentation from their E-Class? Brabus of course!

After releasing tuning packages for both the sedans and the coupes, their natural progression is over to the cabriolet. And this time they'll have everything ready for the vehicle's market launch. Clearly this luxury convertible screams sportiness which is what Brabus built off of: exclusive, sporty and highly individual.

All Brabus tuning packages are comprehensive from bumper to bumper, engine to interior and this package is no different. Starting with engine upgrades, various packages are available based on the E-Class model. We'll skip over the boring E 250 CDI, CGI and E 350 CDI, CGI and go straight to the E500 (E550 in North America). A stroker kit increases displacement of 5.5-liters to 6.1-liters, which starts the bottom end modifications. New cylinder heads with special camshafts are paired up to the V8 block while bolt-ons include a Brabus stainless-steel exhaust system and high-performance catalytic converters. And of course the ECU is re-programmed. This program throws down 462-hp with 453 ft-lbs of torque. That's good for 0-62 mph in 4.7 seconds!

An aerodynamic package is manufactured from high-quality Pur-R-Rim plastics which resembles OEM quality – just what we'd expect from Brabus. A front spoiler incorporates daytime LED running lights while front sport fenders sports some air vents. The rear diffuser is setup to incorporate the Brabus quad-tip exhaust.

As always, plenty of wheels can be selected from Brabus from 17- to 19-inch with a recommended staggered 19-inch setup sporting 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 sized tires. Brabus did hint that 20-inch wheels are on the horizon. Lowering options are available from sport springs (1.2-inch) to adjustable coilovers with variable damper rates.

Never to overlook any aspect, Brabus six-piston aluminum calipers with 14.2-inch slotted and drilled rotors in the front while the rear sports four-piston calipers. And if your wallet is still full after all this, talk to them about some custom interior upgrades. You know you wanna.

I cannot for the life of me understand why this car didn't get the full AMG treatment.
