The world-renowned tuner and car manufacturer offers individualized options to satisfy every wish. The Brabus product line-up ranges from powerful tuned engines and elegantly styled aerodynamic kits to high-quality light-alloy wheels, dynamic yet comfortable sport suspensions and exquisitely luxurious interiors handcrafted to perfection.
Brabus uses the most exacting standards for the development and testing of its tuning parts - and stands behind them 100 percent: All Brabus components - including all performance kits and increased-displacement engines - are covered by the unique Brabus Tuning Warranty of three years up to 100,000 kilometers.
Brabus is also one of the world's most exclusive manufacturers of automobiles: Being recognized as such by the Kraftfahrtbundesamt (German Federal Motor Vehicle Registration Agency) Brabus builds such exciting high-performance vehicles as for example the 730-hp / 537-kW and 350-km/h (electronically limited) Brabus Rocket based on the Mercedes CLS.
These activities are recognized not only by the media but also by the public at large. In a poll conducted by Germany's leading automobile magazine readers voted for "Die besten Autos - BEST CARS 2006". Readers were also asked to name automobile tuners whose products they considered to have special merit. 55 percent of participants named Brabus and thus voted the company from Bottrop 'BEST BRAND 2006' in the 'automobile tuner' category.
Brabus was founded in 1977 by Bodo Buschmann and has grown into one of the world's largest tuning companies. Brabus has its headquarters in Bottrop, in the heart of the Ruhr Valley, directly on the A2 autobahn. Its grounds house the global company's development and production departments as well as large showrooms.
An expansion of the Brabus production and administration building on the 112,000-square meter grounds on Brabus Allee was completed in the summer of 1999.
Vehicle customization and service work is done at 85 high-tech workstations. Cutting-edge computer technology is used to manage the 105,000-cubic-meter storage facility to guarantee speedy delivery of Brabus parts to places all over the world.
Most testing is carried out at Brabus' own test track, which features acceleration and braking tracks, sine curves, a skid pad and a shake track with Belgian blocks. Brabus currently employs more than 350 people in all.
New versions are continuously scrutinized in extensive testing programs. Brabus places great emphasis on continuous, strict quality inspections of all its products. Needless to say Brabus has ISO 9001 quality certification.
Brabus also places high demands on its suppliers, working only with respected OE manufacturers like ARAL, Pirelli and Yokohama as its technology partners.
The high quality demands Brabus places on its own developments, products and services are also recognized by its peers in the automotive industry. In a joint venture with smart GmbH Brabus founded the smart-Brabus GmbH in 2002. In the fall of 2003 the company moved into the new 11,000-m? plant in Bottrop, where an exclusive accessories program for all smart models as well the top-of-the-line models for all smart model series are developed and manufactured.
Maximum environmental friendliness is at the forefront of all Brabus developments: All Brabus-tuned engines feature especially low fuel consumption and always remain well below current EURO IV emission limits.
Naturally all Brabus PowerXtra performance kits for the Mercedes CDI models with common-rail turbodiesel technology are also suitable and homologated for vehicles with diesel particulate filter.
Brabus is a highly respected partner to companies around the globe. In 1998 the company founded Brabus North America Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary with headquarters in Newport Beach, California, to serve the Canadian and USA markets.
