I don't know if it's a real tuned car. The wheels are Lorinser and the Engine has Carlsson on it. It also has no body kit which I would expect from a car like this. I've seen some Carlsson cars before and they usually have from memory a blue engine block where as Brabus has a red one.
The car looks good from the outside but the upholstery could do with a renewal job as it is showing its age.
The car does use the CIS system and with its age i would avoid it. It is a troubled system and the rotoraty fuel distributer goes wrong, the air induction plate always needs adjusting and basically, unless you are a total enthusiast and DIY guy, then avoid it
Although i am an MB Tech and a Benz fanatic i would not want to buy one of the CIS fitted cars, just my opinion of course.
