Brabus Introduces New Monobloc F, G, and Q Wheels

Along with the unveiling of the ML 63 Biturbo at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show, Brabus also also shows off its latest creations in term of wheel design. To that end, the company unveiled three new light alloy wheels Monoblock F, G and Q at the event, which will further widen its after market product offer.

Brabus Monoblock F are 21 inch forged wheels designed with offset cross spokes that extend all the way to the outer flange of the rim. This feature is making the wheels seem even larger than they already are.

Use of high-tech forging technology ensures that Monoblock F wheels are especially light and extremely strong. Compared to a cast wheel of the same size, they are up to 14 percent lighter. The Monoblock F wheels can be mounted on the Mercedes CL-, GL-, GLK-, M-, R- and S-Klasse models.

The second wheel of the Brabus Limited Edition is the Monoblock G wheel. The new high-tech wheel offers a mix of lightweight design and maximum strength. A weight reduction of 20 percent compared to conventional wheels of identical size translates into optimized handling and increased driving comfort thanks to the reduced unsprung weight. The new wheel is approved for all Mercedes SUVs, the R-Klasse and the Maybach models.

Brabus Monoblock Q, available in diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches, features five double-spokes design, with a polished surface and anthracite-colored background. This design element reduces the wheel weight and gives it the appearance of a premium forged wheel. Special high-load versions of the Monoblock Q wheel were developed for use on especially heavy vehicles such as the SUV series.

Brabus' new wheel will compete at the show with the ones made by the German tuner Carlsson. The 21-inch wheel Carlsson brings to the event weighs only 10.8 kilograms, making it the lightest wheel its size in the world.
