If you’re on this site you’ve clearly heard of the German tuning giant Brabus. The name is synonymous with Mercedes-Benz tuning but their talents are more widespread and include many other brands, a particular SXdrv favourite being what they do to Porsches. The tuning company has been in existence for nigh on 50 years now, and the company has a stellar reputation. Among other things, Brabus is known for engine swaps and shoehorning bigger and better engines into smaller cars, and while this happens the company also pays attention to all other facets of the cars so they can be safer and more reliable. The quality of work and the components used are the best of the best available, which is why the BRABUS name is also linked to higher incomes. It’s not just anyone who can afford BRABUS things. It makes you think about all the BRABUS G63 AMGs running around Sandton - those chaps have big cash. In recent times the company has focused its efforts on electric powerplants because that just makes sense if you look at where the world of motoring is headed. While EVs are already powerful with impressive performance, even on regular commuter-spec models, there will be a new generation of car owners that still want more than what can be had at the manufacturer level. Getting a jump on tweaking these new-generation cars is just good business sense. Over and above that, the company has also used its extensive skill on two-wheeled beasts, in particular from Austrian motorbike manufacturer, KTM.
Take a look at the YouTube video from the folks at KTM who are clearly impressed with the work that was carried out on one of their top-of-the-line enduro bikes. Admittedly, the end result is so damn cool that it's a bike that we'd rather have parked up on display in a fancy garage or legit man cave instead of actually riding it anywhere. What do you reckon? Too pretty to ride?: The grand finale – the BRABUS 1300R Masterpiece Edition | KTM
