A sporty designer suit, custom - tailored wheels with diameters of up to 20 inches complete with corresponding suspension options, performance tuning for all engines and exclusive interior design: BRABUS now offers an extensive customization program for the new Mercedes SLK.

The two BRABUS front spoiler lips that attach on the left and right side of the production apron and the striking bezels for the daytime running lights lend the SLK a more striking nose. But that’s not all: the spoilers also reduce lift on the front axle which particularly benefits directional stability at high speeds.
