Brabus Starts GLA Attack with New Wheel Launch

Wheels

But we’re still waiting for the full treatment.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA was launched at last year’s Frankfurt MotorShow and is just beginning its market launch in Europe, with US sales expectedlater this year. With an optional AMG bodykit and sports package, it is apretty good looking compact crossover, looking like a jacked-up, stretched-out Mercedes AClass hatchback. But Mercedes tuner Brabus loves taking the company’s cars andmaking them even more awesome than they come as stock.

Here, the GLA is given a preliminary Brabus treatment withnew wheels, a lowered suspension, and lower, sportier springs that bringthe car closer to the ground. The wheels are Monoblock F cross spokes in “LiquidTitanium”, with 255/40 tires. A good start, but now the car is really ready forsome Brabus style.
