OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
Geneva, Switzerland, Mar 01, 2011
All over the world BRABUS Monoblock alloy wheels are the top choice for owners of Mercedes-Benz and Maybach automobiles that value exclusive design and highest quality. At the Geneva Motor Show 2011, BRABUS presents four new exclusive Monoblock wheels. The BRABUS technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply the perfect high-performance tires for these wheels.
BRABUS Monoblock F
BRABUS Monoblock F – this designation has in the past only applied to “PLATINUM EDITION” forged wheels with a diameter of 21 inches. Now there is also a version in size 11Jx23, which can be mounted on the Mercedes models of the G-, GL- and M-Class.
High-tech forging technology makes both BRABUS Monoblock F “PLATINUM EDITION” wheels especially light and yet extremely robust. Compared to a conventional cast wheel of the same size they represent weight savings of up to 15 percent.
In contrast to the brushed surface of the 21-inch wheel the 23-inch wheel is painted a matte grey. Both wheels sport the words “BRABUS” and “GESCHMIEDET” cut into the rim flange and both carry the “PLATINUM EDITION” stainless-steel placard.
Because this wheel design with staggered cross-spokes that extend all the way to the outer edge of the flange is very popular with customers around the world, the Monoblock F design is now also available in a cast version in sizes 8.5Jx20 and 9.5Jx20. In addition to the striking design the “Liquid Titanium” paint contributes to their great appeal.
The new 20-inch Monoblock F wheel comes with T?V approval for almost all models of the Mercedes model series C, CL, CLS, E, S, SLK and SL.
BRABUS Monoblock E evo “PLATINUM EDITION”
Stagnation is regression and thus the development of the BRABUS “PLATINUM EDITION” high-tech forged wheels keeps advancing. The result: The BRABUS Monoblock E evo “PLATINUM EDITION” 11Jx23 wheel.
As the name indicates it is the evolution of the Monoblock E “PLATINUM EDITION” wheel popular worldwide. To further improve the surface quality of the sporty-exclusive design with nine strikingly styled spokes and to reduce weight even further the wheel spider of the three-piece wheel is now forged as well.
The king-size 11Jx23 wheel is T?V-tested for the Mercedes-Benz G-, GL- and M-Class.
BRABUS Monoblock VI evo “PLATINUM EDITION”
Revised versions of the classic in the BRABUS wheel program, the Monoblock VI, are now available under the name Monoblock VI evo. The wheel spider of the three-piece 21-inch “PLATINUM EDITION” wheel is now forged instead of cast.
This results in a further weight reduction and an even higher quality surface, which is immediately apparent in a polished wheel such as the Monoblock VI.
The BRABUS Monoblock VI evo wheels are available in sizes 9Jx21 and 10.5Jx21 and homologated for the Mercedes S- and CL-Class, the GLK, ML and GL as well as for the Maybach.
