2011 Geneva Motor Show

Famed tuner Brabus has released some pictures and details about their tuning program for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS just before its Geneva debut. In general, there will be a variety of aerodynamic enhancements and interior and performance upgrades. There's a new front bumper that has optional LED daytime running lights along with new fender gills, side skirts, a boot lid spoiler, and a rear apron with custom cutouts for the sport exhaust system.

Brabus has added a kit to the 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY 2.1-liter turbo diesel that brings an additional 31 hp for a total of 235 hp and peak torque of 413 lb-ft. The 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY also receives a new kit that has 'Eco' and 'Sport modes. When the latter is engaged, power increases from 265 hp to 313 hp. More details will come shortly from Geneva.
