Carlsson offers C-Tronic CB power upgrade unit

Renowned Merzig-based tuning specialist, Carlsson has created a range of C-Tronic CB units for 4-cylinder turbocharged Mercedes-Benz engines, offering up to 28 percent more power.

The Carlsson unit simply links up with the car’s on-board electronic control system, via a cable, to make things a little more interesting.

Tailored for each specific engine size; for example, the CB18 unit takes the C 180 BlueEfficiency from 156 hp (115 kW) to 186 hp (137 kW), the CB20 gives the SLK 200 BlueEfficiency a jump from 184 hp (135 kW) to 211 hp (155 kW), while the E 250 BlueEfficiency can enjoy 231 hp (170 kW) instead of the previous 204 hp (150 kW), thanks to a CB25 module. All of these programs will set you back € 1190 each (before taxes).

The next level of tune involves the C-Tronic CB S and the addition of a Carlsson intercooler – available for € 1690 (before taxes). This helps to release 201 hp from the C 180 BlueEfficiency, 224 hp from the SLK 200 BlueEfficiency, and 239 hp from the E 250 BlueEfficiency model.
