Post BRABUS tunes Mercedes S 350 BlueTec

Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has announced the world's first performance tuned vehicle that meets the new EURO VI exhaust emission standard which goes into effect 2014.

Essentially a plug-and-play control unit, the BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D6S module achieves an increase in power output of 55 PS (54 bhp / 40.5 kW) to 313 PS (308 bhp / 230 kW) while peak torque goes from 620 Nm to 690 Nm (457 to 509 lb-ft) when installed in a Mercedes-Benz S 350 BlueTEC. That's a fair amount of extra power for a plug-and-play device while under cutting EURO VI limits by 30 percent.

The BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D6S kit comes with a unique feature allowing it to be turned on and off. Via the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission the performance output remains unchanged at 258 PS (255 bhp / 190 kW) when the 'Eco' mode is engaged. However, when the 'Manual' or 'Sport' mode is selected maximum power output increases to 313 PS (308 bhp / 230 kW) at 3,600 rpm. In this configuration the tuned S 350 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.5 seconds, half a second faster than the production car. Top speed remains electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Special versions of the BRABUS ECO PowerXtra D6S performance kit are also available for the S 350 BlueTEC 4Matic, all four body styles of the Mercedes E 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY model and for the new CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY.

It's not cool if you can actually SEE the puddle lights on the underbody. Can we say Street Glow Civic style?
