Think your GLE is lacking a bit of power? Needs a little more oomph? Well...

Brabus has brought to the table the 410 PowerXtra Upgrade. Nothing too crazy, but will give you a little more push that could really excite your drive.

The regular GLE 43 pushes ~362hp and 383lb-ft of toque which gets the GLE moving from 0-100km/h in about 5.7 seconds.

Installing the 410 PowerXtra kit will give you a bump up to ~404hp and 420lb-ft of torque. Effectively lowering that 0-100km/h time down to approximately 5.4 seconds. Doesn't sound like much, but that extra 42hp and 37lb-ft of torque will definitely be noticeable.

If that's not enough, you can always opt for some other Brabus upgrades like the 22" alloy wheels, custom front grill, custom door lock pins, lowering module, aluminum pedal pads, and you can't forget, the good ol' Brabus floor mats.

Going with the Brabus GLE43 Coupe, you can expect standard equipment to include: Black leather, a ski bag, heated front seats, wood trim, magic visin control, keyless-go, air balance package, panoramic roof, 12.3" display, drive assistance package PLUS, and ambient lighting. There are also various packages to go along with it as well.

The updated pricing on the Brabus GLE43 is set at €120,203.
The regular GLE starts at €76,398 in Germany.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE43 starts at €116,441

too bad they didn't do anything exciting to the interior, for the most part it looks stock.
taking it up a level like their C63 AMGs is much more like it:

The 42hp increase is very substantial, thought it would be around 10-20 but that price reflects the power increase. That's just too rich for my blood. You'd think they would do something special with the interior if they're charging so much for one.

See an interior like that is freaking nice. It's something to be expected out of a performance variant. Even just some off-color stitching and carbon accents throughout, it would look great.

Another good example is what Porsche did to the interior of their 911 GT3, and it's no where near as hard to copy this. Very simple things go a long way:



Even BMW gets it:

Not personally fond of all of that suede/alcantara everywhere. Suede wears down relatively quickly (compared to other materials) and when it gets dirty, or worn, it's extremely obvious. That Porsche interior does look nice. I also like when they put that strap in there in place of a door handle.

Forget the minutia, my point is they need something more going on, those were some examples not something to be copied to the T, its not what i'm trying to get at here.
