In grand fashion (and ahead of North American market delivery) Brabus has released it’s latest project car – the 2011 supercharged Brabus CLS.
We’ve been selling Brabus and Brabus style wheels for 10 years now and we’re shocked that they haven’t really evolved in their styling. The designers at Brabus seem to feel like they’re in a league of their own when it comes to wheel fashions – and that they set the trends, not follow them.
This style wheel has been used on domestic and tuner applications for years and the less-than-novel, gray “custom” paint just doesn’t do the Brabus name justice. Hopefully they’ll catch up with the current trends for automotive fashion and use their awesome design team to come up with Mercedes Benz parts that are truly groundbreaking – the way Brabus used to be.
Brabus has tuned so pretty insane Benz models and has a very impressive resume. However, as car manufacturers continue to push the parameters of design, so must Brabus. I’m afraid they’re applying the same 90s formula in 2011 and it’s just not the magic it once was.
