The known Mercedes-Benz aftermarket tuning firm Brabus has expanded its territory in Malaysia. Yesterday (November 11), the company opened its showroom and Performance Center in Glenmarie, Shah Alam, which is the state capital of Selangor, Malaysia. According to AutoBuzz.my, the combined cost of the two facilities is around RM8 million, or approximately $2,398,081.76 (US) based on the conversion tool of Google. One of the key highlights of the event was the unveiling of the Brabus CLS Rocket 730.
The Brabus CLS Rocket 730 was based from the Mercedes CLS63 AMG. Although the tuner retained the original 5.5-liter biturbo V8 engine of the car offered by AMG, it was extensively tweaked to achieve up to 730 hp and a whopping 1,065 Nm of torque. All that power enables the Brabus CLS Rocket 730 to achieve a sprint of zero to 100 km/h in only 3.8 seconds. Then, its top speed is clocked at an astonishing 350 km/h.
The package also came with the usual body kit of Brabus for the car. The body kit included new bumpers, air intakes, a set of twin ten-spoke alloy wheels, spoilers, quad exhaust tips, foot pedals, diffusers, and the signature logos of the tuner here and there.
Overall, the mentioned goodies cost approximately RM1.3 million, or $389,688.29 (US) from the ever-reliable conversion tool of Google.
