"BRABUS by RACE!" once again cut one out. This time the basis was a Mercedes-Benz W166 ML which has been sold as a GLE SUV since 2015. The Stuttgart got from the South African tuner RACE! SOUTH AFRICA a complete Brabus body kit missed including 22 inch wheelset. The aerodynamic kit comes with body components in the form of a front spoiler lip and massive air intakes (also on the side), customized air ducts and additional LED daytime running lights. Also a black Brabus grille including a large emblem of the tuner was installed and on the hood there is a small Brabus badge instead of the Mercedes-Benz star. At the rear one installed a completely new rear apron including diffuser and tailpipes fitted perfectly in black.
There is also a Brabus emblem on the tailgate instead of the Mercedes-Benz star and also a black “Brabus” lettering. And as already mentioned, a new wheel set is installed and here you installed shiny black painted BRABUS Monoblock Y rims in 22 inches with ultra-thin Continental Sport Contact 6 Niederquerschnittbereifung certainly does not give thought to driving off paved roads. The spokes on the rims make it easy to see the red brake calipers on the huge AMG sports brake system, which ensures adequate deceleration.
The optical appearance is rounded off with completely darkened panes that stand out especially in combination with the white paint finish. In general, many have been provided with shiny black accents by, for example, painting the running boards of the Brabus side skirts, the roof or even the practical sill protection on the rear apron in black. However, we are not aware of changes in performance. It is feasible, for example, as GLE 63 BRABUS 850 6.0 Biturbo 4 × 4 Supercar a leap in performance to insane 625 kW / 850 horsepower and a maximum torque of 1.450 Nm.
These key data in the GLE ensure that it goes to 3,8 km / h in just 100 seconds and that a top speed of electronically limited 320 km / h is achieved with ease. Or alternatively as the B63S with 700 PS and 960NM. And that in an SUV ... If we receive information about further changes to this vehicle shortly, there will of course be an update.
