With 45 years under its belt, Brabus is undoubtedly among the best car-tuning imprints in the game. Following its take on the Porsche Taycan Turbo S and the Rolls-Royce Ghost earlier this year, the company has just unveiled its latest revamp — this time, to the Mercedes EQS.

Inspired by high-level aero-efficiency and ultra-modern innovation, the Brabus Mercedes-Benz EQS provides a 40% reduction in aerodynamic lift with carbon air deflectors, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler. Additionally, with 22-inch Brabus Monoblock M forged wheels, a SportXtra suspension model and top-tier wind tunnel technology, the vehicle’s drag coefficient has improved by a sizable 7.2%. In turn, the lower drag reduces the car’s driving resistance, resulting in a 7% average increase in the speed range between 100 and 140 km/h.

Designed with an exposed Brabus carbon exterior concept and a “Signature Black” finish, the vehicle dons an all-new sporty appearance. The aforementioned wheels, which are available in several designs and diameters, have been tailor-made to align with the wheel wells on the EQS and boast forged “PLATINUM EDITION” rims. Aside from their sleek appearance, the wheels allow for a more agile handling, which can be further enhanced with the plug-and-play Brabus SportXtra module.

As with all Mercedes-Benz models, Brabus offers a multitude of refinement options for the interior of the vehicle, most of which put forth an exclusive Brabus fine leather treatment. The product lineup includes scuff plates with a backlit Brabus logo, as well as aluminum or carbon pedals, high-end floor mats and a velour trunk mat.
