The cost of BRABUS tuning can vary greatly depending on a car’s model and modifications. However, we’re talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Let’s take the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 Coupe as an example. The starting price of this car is around $120,000. The 4-liter V8 engine has an insane 603 horsepower, accelerating 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.4 seconds. 

After BRABUS got their hands on this model, it reached 888 horsepower, accelerating 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds. BRABUS called this beast the 900 Rocket Edition and only released 25 of them.

The AMG GLE 63 Coupe also received a custom body and interior tuning, giving it a more aggressive and sporty look. The asking price of the 900 Rocket is around $447,000, meaning the tuned version costs over $300,000 more than the original Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 Coupe. Tuning a car is expensive, but the cost of BRABUS tuning is on another level.

Main features of BRABUS cars

You can buy a BRABUS tuned car on the company’s website, as you would buy a regular vehicle from any dealership. If you want something more specific, you can get custom tuning and select every detail yourself. However, a few distinguishing characteristics describe all BRABUS vehicles:

  • Taylor-made appearance 
  • Powerful engines
  • Comfort and luxury

BRABUS uses only the best parts and high-quality materials, so their cars have a unique look, the latest technology, and hundreds of horsepower under the hood.

From the beginning, BRABUS was oriented towards tuning Mercedes cars, and they didn’t change this direction for many years. However, now their lineup is much more diverse. As of today, BRABUS has various subsidiaries, specializing not only in tuning cars but also boats and ships. Here’s a list of some well-known BRABUS tuned models.

The price of a BRABUS-tuned Smart EQ ForTwo Cabrio is around $53,000, roughly 2-3 more than the original model. Smarts are not expensive cars – you can get a basic version for $15,000. However, more equipped and powerful versions can go up to $28,000.

While Smart is the cheapest car on the BRABUS lineup, Germans have more expensive options like the Rolls-Royce Ghost. This beauty costs over $700,000, as stated on the BRABUS official site.

BRABUS tuning increases a car’s value

BRABUS tuning typically increases a car’s value 2-3 times, by turning already powerful and luxurious models even more powerful and luxurious. This company has built a name for itself in the automotive industry and every car enthusiast knows BRABUS cars. Regular tuning companies can’t be compared with BRABUS, as it’s an international trademark and a participant of the most prestigious auto shows in the world.

BRABUS provides a combination of sport and luxury

BRABUS supercars have all the luxury elements you can imagine, such as a handcrafted fine leather interior, stainless scuff plates with a backlit BRABUS logo, and aluminum pedals. The exterior typically has a subtle color, golden brake calipers, carbon fender flares, and high-performance tires.

While BRABUS is all about luxury, it makes fast cars even faster. Turbocharged engines and the stainless sport exhaust system will make BRABUS cars loud and fast.

Always get a history report before buying any BRABUS

Cars with a large “B” on the front hold their value very well, however, many things affect their value when it comes to used BRABUS cars.

When buying such an expensive and luxurious used car, taking it for a professional inspection and getting a vehicle history report is usually a no-brainer. While professional mechanics can evaluate the current car’s condition, some of the most important facts can only be revealed via history reports, including:

  • Mileage rollbacks
  • Car accidents
  • Historical photos
  • Thefts
  • Ownership flow
  • Titles, and more

You can avoid various used car market scams by getting a history report before buying a vehicle – you only need the car’s VIN number to do this. Severe damage and mileage rollback records hurt the car’s value and can affect the car’s safety.
