Brabus is wetting the appetite of potential European B-Class buyers with its take on the 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class.
The specialist tuner has taken its typical German tuning house ‘no-fuss’ approach, and boosted the B-Class's mojo with a mixture of interior, exterior and chassis upgrades.
Brabus has kept it simple on the outside with a front-bumper lower extension and the addition of a ‘diffuser-like’ element to the rear bumper that sits between the upgraded quad exhaust tips.
Stance is improved by lowering the B-Class 30mm, with sports tuned springs said to improve handling.
Filling out the wheel-arches are 19 inch alloy wheels with 225/35 tyres up front and 255/30 tyres in the rear. Buyers will have a choice of five different alloy wheel designs.
Inside there are some new stainless-steel scuff plates on the sills, to complement the custom leather interior. Buyers will also have a choice of multimedia systems.
Brabus does have plans to add some brawn to the mix, but not just yet. Engine upgrades will become an option later this year.
The Australian debut of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class is expected in the first quarter of this year.
