SLK 320 Brabus

Just looking on fleabay and came across this.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-Mercedes-...item1c122eb758

Besides the cosmetics I wondered if it also has an engine upgrade. It is badged Brabus but no mention of engine tune, I would usually expect them to do something like they tend to do (chipped/air intake/exhaust etc) when it is badged by them and not just add ons. I've emailed the seller so will post reply if I get one.

I very much doubt its a full factory Brabus. The exhaust is a give away and, besides, its advertised as a 320. I think Brabus put a 6.1 engine in the R170s at the time.

I have seen a few with cosmetic Brabus bits and bobs but, I've only ever seen one proper Brabus R170, which was about 10 years ago in central London and it was lush - particularly the sound, I remember it being a real head turner.
