Some argue that the future is not very bright for tuners, as the inevitable switch to electric cars it will penalize aftermarket specialists who will no longer be able to modify combustion engines. But if it is that a good chunk of their business will be wiped out by the disappearance of cylinders and pistons, it is also true that there will still be opportunities.
He thinks about it to prove it Brabus with one of his most recent works: the tuning of the Mercedes EQS, the electric flagship of the Stella modified in aesthetics not only to give it an even more personal look. The German tuner has in fact studied a special body kit capable of increasing autonomy. That’s how.
Even more aerodynamic
The protagonist of the changes was the EQS 450, dressed with new aerodynamic appendages born in the wind tunnel, so as to further improve the Cx by 0.20, – a record value – lowering it by 7.2%. There are new deflectors air in front of the rear wheel arches to optimize airflow, the front is equipped with a new spoiler while the rear houses a new diffuser.
Aerodynamic optimizations made entirely in carbon fiber, to contain the weight as much as possible and which contribute to increasing the range of the Mercedes EQS by 7%, as long as you maintain a speed between 100 and 140 km / h. Then there are new ones alloy wheels single nut available with sizes between 20 and 22 “. Finally, the set-up has also been modified, with a lowering of 15 mm at the front and 20 mm at the rear.
The customization of Brabus then includes various possibility of coatings for the interior, choosing between Alcantara and various types of leather and the possibility to choose between aluminum or carbon pedals.
On the other hand, the 2 electric motors, one per axle, with a total of 523 hp and 800 Nm in total, powered by a 107.8 kWh battery pack, remain unchanged.
