Founder and owner of Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Maybach tuning house ‘Brabus’ Bodo Buschmann has passed away at 62 due to health issues.
According to an official statement released by Brabus, Buschmann passed away following a short illness at the age of 62.
Constantin Buschmann, Bodo’s son who was in charge of Marketing and Sales for Brabus, will now head the tuning house.
Brabus has developed into one of the most recognised and finest tuning houses in the world, specialising in Mercedes-Benz, Smart, Maybach and more recently, Tesla.
The common thing about all cars modified by Brabus is ridiculous levels of power and more importantly, absurd levels of torque.
Brabus was also responsible for some of the most powerful record holding automobiles in the world in the late 90s and until recently including the likes of the 900 bhp Brabus Rocket, based on the original Mercedes-Benz CLS or the 800 bhp Brabus Widestar based on the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG
