The price for the Mercedes is up at $105,462 (€89,131) - tax included, on their official website. In comparison with the new BMW M3 price starting at $97,616 (€82,500) in Germany, you see for yourself that the tuned hot hatch is more expensive. Even in comparison with a Porsche 718 Cayman GTS 4.0, it's more expensive compared to $98,663 (€83,385). But to be honest, $10,000 difference when you really know what a Barbus can deliver.
Do true fans know that when a Brabus promises along with a heavy price tag, it's much more than just a performance car? Paying for the Brabus successfully tuned an already hot hatchback would bring you 444 HP and 550 Newton-meter of torque. That's an extra 29 horsepower and 50 Newton-meter more than the pre-tuned turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
There's the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) race time of 3.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds less than the stock car, but with an identical top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h). Additionally, you get a new set of height-adjustable springs dropping the ride height by up to 30 mm (1.2 in), 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Continental tires, and special scuff plates, aluminum pedals, and velour floor mats. You can even turn to Brabus for a more personalized interior, with optional leather colors and upholstery designs.
