De IAA van Frankfurt staat om de hoek en ondanks een paar afwezigen gaat het toch gewoon een leuke show worden. Daar zorgen de Duitsers wel voor. Brabus doet ook mee en neemt een primeur mee in de vorm van tuning voor de Mercedes-AMG A 35 en we noemen het de Mercedes-AMG Brabus B 35 (S) The IAA in Frankfurt is coming and despite a few brands not showing up at this show it will be a nice one to visit. The Germans are always taking care of this. Off course Brabus is also present in Frankfurt and one of their world premiere will be the Mercedes-AMG Brabus B 35 (S).
The BRABUS PowerXtra B 35 tuning kit, which increases the output of the turbocharged four-valve engine by 32 kW / 44 hp (43 bhp) and adds 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) of torque, comprises the plug-and-play BRABUS PowerXtra module. It supplies the engine electronics with high-performance mapping for controlling the injection and ignition, and increases the boost pressure. The end result is an output of 257 kW / 350 hp (345 bhp) and a peak torque of 460 Nm (339 lb-ft).
Those wishing for even more power, which is to say 268 kW / 365 hp (359 lb-ft) at 6,300 rpm, opt for the BRABUS PowerXtra + B 35 S tuning. The BRABUS high-performance rear muffler optimized for exhaust flow then joins the auxiliary control module.
The stainless sport exhaust maximizes the power delivery and thanks to its integrated sound management, it delivers a fascinating acoustic spectrum from decidedly subtle to thrillingly sporty as well. The muffler can be combined with the stock tailpipes of the A 35 or with four optionally available stainless/carbon tailpipe tips sporting the hallmark BRABUS design. These tailpipes, which were designed to be integrated into the production fascia, are also available separately for owners of an A35 not looking for engine tuning.
In concert with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which can be shifted even more precisely with the BRABUS RACE aluminum paddle shifters on the steering wheel, and 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the power compact with BRABUS PowerXtra + B 35 S performance upgrade accelerates like a full-blooded sports car: It reaches a speed of 100 km/h (62 mph) after just 4.4 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
Just as sporty are the looks of the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC refined by BRABUS: The BRABUS designers developed an aerodynamic-enhancement product range, which is manufactured in OEM quality from high-grade PUR. The two-piece BRABUS front spoiler is designed to be fastened at the left and right of the lower section of the production fascia. The towering flaps at the outboard ends help to further reduce front-axle lift at high speeds.
The two BRABUS elements attached above the horizontal crosspieces of the side air intakes route the airflow optimally into the side air intakes in the front bumper.
The BRABUS rear wing on the roof, which replaces the production rear spoiler, ensures an optimal aerodynamic balance and even more thrilling looks from the rear.
