2001 Brabus C V8

To increase its the engines displacement, BRABUS uses a custom block, a crankshaft with longer stroke and larger pistons. In addition, the cylinders are fine-machined and fitted with custom camshafts.

Reprogrammed engine electronics and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts, built specifically for the BRABUS C V8, also contribute to the impressive power output. The engine and the customized five-speed automatic transmission, which transfers power to the rear axle, are both operated using ARAL high-performance lubricants.
