If you're looking to give your Mercedes-Benz an added dose of performance, look no further than Brabus. The aftermarket tuning house specializes in customizing Daimler's finest, and doesn't stop at upgrading the engine and running gear, either. With packages like the iBusiness suite, Brabus will turn your S-Class, for example, into a 219-mph high-tech office on wheels. In other words, it'll make it more like a private jet. But what if you want your jet to feel more like your customized Mercedes? Brabus can help with that, too.

The new Brabus Private Aviation division is set up in response to customer demand and follows a similar project launched recently to outfit yacht interiors. It allows discerning and well-heeled clients to either retrofit the cabins of their existing private jets or commission the accoutrements to be fitted to new aircraft direct from whatever aerospace concern is building their new private jet.

The focus is on both luxury and business capabilities, which Brabus is currently displaying with two concepts at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Geneva. Scope 'em out in the high-resolution image gallery above, the press release below and the dedicated website beyond the link.

BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION Exclusive Customization of Private Jets

Tailor-made luxury dream cars, high-end engines and automotive individualization components have made BRABUS the world's largest independent automobile individualization brand over the past 35 years. In addition to owners of exclusive automobiles and yachts BRABUS Group now begins to cater to yet another exclusive group of clients: the owners of private jets. BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION offers exclusive design and manufacturing for the cabins of brand-new executive jets as well as the redesign and customization of aircraft already in operation.

Matching the design style of the cabin the BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION designers also create extraordinary exterior designs which give each jet its very own individual character. Professional aircraft management services custom-tailored to the client's individual preferences such as the assistance during the selection and purchasing of an aircraft complete the picture.

BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION focuses on existing or new heavyjets, such as the Bombardier Global Express and Challenger aircraft families, as well as on the Dassault Falcon series. Larger business liners can be customized as well.

Together with the BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION designers, aircraft owners can either custom-tailor their very own personal cabin design from the ground up or request one of the design lines presented by BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION. At the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition EBACE 2012, May 14 - 16 in Geneva, Switzerland. There BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION presents two design lines called "ELEGANCE" and "SPORTIVE" for the Bombardier Global Express. Both represent the signature BRABUS design style automotive enthusiasts from all over the globe are familiar with.

For the implementation of this concept BRABUS Group forged an alliance with three prominent partners from the aviation industry: PrivatAir, a leading aircraft operations and management company with a global network of aviation experts and facilities, RUAG Aviation, one of the most respected companies for maintenance and completion work located in Munich, Germany, and HAPPY DESIGN STUDIO with its many years of experience in the development and quality execution of extraordinary liveries. All BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION services are certifiable in accordance with FAS and EASA regulations.

"The exclusive customization of aircraft is a logical evolution of our product portfolio," explains Prof. h. c. Bodo Buschmann, CEO of the German BRABUS Group. "In the past we have been approached by a number of our customers asking us to design and outfit their private jet. That's why in addition to our marine division we now also have the BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION business division."

BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION offers premium aircraft cabin and exterior design and 'Made in Germany' aircraft completion for VIP customers from around the world. It is a division of BRABUS Group, the renowned German manufacturer of luxury automotive interior designs, super cars and tuning components. Together with a strong network of partners BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION offers its customers a unique blend of engineering and design know-how from both the automotive and the aviation industry. The target is to create very modern and stylish aircraft interiors and exteriors for brand-new aircraft as well as for aircraft already in use. Two examples of possible designs are the bright and luxurious "Elegance" version and the progressive and modern "Sportive" version, both presented by BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION for the cabin of a Global Express aircraft at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition EBACE 2012, May 14 - 16 in Geneva, Switzerland. Above and beyond the designs presented by BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION customers can of course create a completely individual cabin interior and aircraft exterior design together with the BRABUS designers.

The "ELEGANCE" design creates an exclusive, bright atmosphere with a combination of cream-colored BRABUS fine leather, Alcantara and high-end wood applications. As is the case for all BRABUS interiors, the BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION designers and upholsterers pay particular attention to a perfect finish of the cabin-components down to the very last detail. This encompasses the precise color coordination of all interior components including the elaborately designed wood trim with high-gloss finish.

The "SPORTIVE" design line sets an exciting contrast in the cabin. Its combination of black and gray leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber lends the cabin a fresh and progressive
appearance. The perfectly finished carbon-fiber elements and the seat design with red contrasting seams are inspired by the design of exclusive sports cars.

The BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION high-tech inflight entertainment system lets passengers communicate and enjoy all forms of modern digital media on high-end multimedia devices such as the Apple iPad or iPhone. Custom-tailored docking and charging stations ensure the perfect integration of Multimedia devices into the aircraft. After landing the same multimedia devices can then be taken along for a ride in the BRABUS 800 iBusiness sedan, offering the same level of comfort and integration as the airplane.

On the outside every inch of the fuselage is refined in detail and a carbon fibre design is applied onto the drift. Once on board the passengers can see specially painted winglets. Different versions of the BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION exterior design in black, white or grey for all tastes.

Sourcing, purchasing and aircraft-management services are offered through the network of BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION in connection with PrivatAir and its decades of experience in the aviation industry and a worldwide network of aviation professionals. Aircraft completion and redesign takes place at the facilities of the top-quality BRABUS PRIVTATE AVIATION completion-partner RUAG Aviation in Munich, Germany. All BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION completion and refurbishment work is certifiable by EASA and FAA. Finally Happy Design Studio provides the necessary professional experience and avantgarde thinking for the creation of detailed and unique exterior designs that let every jet designed by BRABUS PRIVATE AVIATION stand out from the crowd.
