As we progressed through the 1980s and the minivan took over for the wagon and emasculated men around the Now it looks as if the station wagon has full circle in the automotive as minivans are slowly disappearing, and and station wagons are taking place.

Of course, now station are called either 5-door or “shooting brake.” Much when Prince decided to his name to an unpronounceable symbol, continue to think of these as wagons.

First of all, the CLS Shooting is not your typical station It is elegant, stylish, and, in cases, downright fast. Its lines are not something you would from a wagon and Brabus sure to take care developing its exterior modifications, as to not the CLS’s already stout

On the CLS 250 and CLS 350 CDI BlueEfficiency models, as well as the CLS 350 and CLS 500 with the factory-added aerodynamics you can upgrade to the Brabus exterior Up front, this package a Brabus front spoiler to add a little down-force to the front but mostly to enhance its overall You also get the Brabus front attachments with integrated LED running lamps, which is a bit of a on this package, as it features air vents that simply tacky. The CLS’s factory are replaced sport fenders, feature faux heat that look almost as if were glued in place – not too of a job. Finally, you get a set of Brabus skirts with integrated light, which are relatively when you compare them to the of the kit.

Mercedes-Benz CLS 250 CDI AT Base

Engine and Drivetrain

Okay, the hood is where Brabus makes its biggest mark, so see what it has in store for us.

At the base the CLS 250 CDI, Brabus installed the D4 performance kit, which the CLS 250 CDI BlueEfficiency from 150 kW (204 to 172.8 kW (235 horsepower) and 500 Nm (369 pound-feet) of torque to 560 Nm pound-feet), that’s a 15-percent and increase, respectively.

The CLS 350 CDI Blue gets the aid of the Brabus ECO PowerXtra D6S kit. This tune is more in depth than the CLS 250 CDI as this one also changes up the Plus gearbox. When 350 CDI is in “ECO” mode, the 350 CDI’s is increased from its standard 620 Nm pound-feet) to 690 Nm (509 pound-feet), but its 195 kW horsepower) is left unchanged. you shift your 350 CDI manual or it to “Sport” mode, the real fun in, as an extra 35 kW (48 horsepower) heads to the giving it a stout 230 kW (313 This gets the fairly CLS 350 CDI to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.9 a full 0.7 seconds faster stock. The Mercedes top speed remains at the factory-set 250 km/h mph).

Next in line is the CLS 500 BlueEfficiency which Brabus used its performance kit on to boost its power 300 kW (402 horsepower) to 368 kW (500 The base torque output for the CLS 500 is 600 Nm pound-feet) and this upgrade it up to an impressive 720 Nm (531 pound-feet). is no mention of the CLS 500 CDI’s 0-to-100 time, but this kit does it up to a 300 km/h (186 mph) top – its standard top speed it 250 km/h mph).

Now onto the big dog: the CLS 63 AMG Brake. Brabus installed the performance kit on the CLS 63 AMG, which its output from an already 415 kW (557 horsepower) and 720 Nm (531 of torque to 455 kW (619 horsepower) and 900 to Nm (663 to 737 pound-feet) of torque. drops its 0-to-100 km/h from 4.4 seconds to 4.2 seconds and it top speed from an electronically 249 km/h (155 mph) to 320 (200 mph).

In addition to the on the CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake, Brabus installed a sports exhaust with a butterfly valve to you to tune the exhaust not on the fly. A wheel-mounted button allows the to choose from “Coming mode and “Sport” mode, the former being a quiet and the latter being a more tone. Additionally, the dual exhaust tips hanging the rear end are a nice visual The other models get a full-stainless-steel exhaust system that increases power output and note.

Finally, Brabus installed a limited-slip differential with a locking rate, which keep the CLS’s tires slipping when cornering at speeds.
