BRABUS Business Lounge Exterior Design
The BRABUS Business Lounge Exterior Design
The exterior of the BRABUS Business Lounge, based on the Mercedes-Benz V-Class also stands out from the crowd.
To give the van a more striking appearance, the BRABUS designers developed attachments for the side air intakes and a front spoiler that mounts to the lower section of the bumper and that includes LED daytime running lights. Thanks to its sophisticated shape, this aerodynamic-enhancement component reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds for further optimized handling stability.
The BRABUS designers developed a three-piece cladding for the rear bumper, which on the left and right side provides the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless sports exhaust, and with its center section designed to look like a diffusor lends the van a markedly sporty yet elegant rear appearance. The tailor-made BRABUS Monoblock alloys, available in four different designs and with diameters of 18 or 19 inches, also play a major role in the sporty-elegant appearance of the refined van.
The largest independently safety-certified variant features 8.5Jx19 wheels. The show car in Geneva shows two wheel families, the BRABUS Monoblock F with cross-spoke design and the BRABUS Monoblock T styling with five double spokes. The optimal high-performance tires of size 255/40 ZR 19 front and back are supplied by technology partners Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA.
For the Mercedes V 250 d, the BRABUS engine specialists developed the PowerXtra D4 performance kit. The plug-and-play module bumps the power output of the four-cylinder common-rail turbo diesel engine by 33 kW / 45 HP (44 bhp) and boosts peak torque by 70 Nm (52 lb-ft). A new peak torque of 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) between 1,400 and 2,400 rpm delivers superior in-gear acceleration that lets the BRABUS BUSINESS LOUNGE master any traffic situation with ease. The rated power output jumps from standard 140 kW / 190 HP to 173 kW / 235 HP (188 to 232 bhp). As a result, the van accelerates from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km/h (130 mph).
