The most epic cars from Brabus – A Mercedes-Benz tuning company

Brabus is a German tuning company that was established in 1977 and is still in love with Mercedes-Benz.

The company has over 40 years of expertise in tuning cars from Mercedes-Benz, Maybach, and even Smart.

They are active in more than 100 countries globally, and have been an owner-led organisation since the very start.

Even in South Africa there are some exceptional examples rolling around, and we are fortunate enough to also have our own official dealer – RACE!

As Brabus specialises in the development and building of high-performance cars from Mercedes-Benz, they have managed to produce several German dream machines.

But their focus doesn’t just lie in the latest and greatest.

They also have a “Six-Star Restoration” program to fix up vintage cars their customers bring in.

Engine

The most important part of a Brabus vehicle lies under the hood.

They take the already impressive engines that Mercedes-Benz puts into their vehicles, and dials them up to the next level.

Powerful engines are the cornerstone of this business, and the performance can only be explained as “a mighty push forward – and that push keeps going and going”.

Not only do they improve performance by a big margin, they also add a plethora of cosmetic and functional parts throughout the exterior and interior to make sure your car stands out.

Brabus explains their own process best: “It is the passion for automobiles, the commitment to performance, the desire for perfection, the pursuit of the superlative, but also a sense for aesthetics and functionality that turn production cars into Brabus automobiles.”

Throughout the 44-year lifespan of the company it has released some truly spectacular cars – here are our favourites.
