Brabus Mercedes GLS Class X166 Upgrades RamSpeed

After toying around with Mercedes GLC, the German tuner Brabus has shifted its attention on Mercedes-AMG’s larger and more luxurious GLS. Since some customers prefer a car that is both super strong and extra-large, Brabus comes with an impressive upgrade for the massive GLS Class X166, giving it exterior and interior enhancements and high-performance boost. It is an extensive kit and is indicative of what Brabus is capable of when it comes to an all-inclusive tuning program. The specifications of the program are-

Brabus Bodykit

As intimidating Brabus modified GLS looks in the pictures, it doesn’t give a clear picture of what Brabus did to the exterior of the Mercedes GLS to make it look like a titan on four wheels. In true Brabus fashion, the SUV has totally got dressed in the extensive aerodynamic kit, from the massive front spoiler, rear bumper, side skirts and rear spoiler. The bodykit components included in the aerodynamic kit are-

  • Front lip
  • Front bumper add-ons
  • Rear skirt
  • Rear spoiler
  • Brabus logo for tailgate
  • Brabus emblem
  • Brabus front grill logo

Brabus Wheels

Mercedes GLS has got its aggressive looks from the custom aero package and carbon finish Brabus Monoblock wheels. Thanks to state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, these wheels offer a perfect amalgamation of lightweight construction and maximum strength.  Brabus partners with Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA to supply the matching high-performance tires. The chassis engineers at Brabus have developed a special control module for the AIRMATIC air suspension which enhances the driving dynamics further and give the vehicle an even sportier appearance.
