CONTENT Base Vehicle: Mercedes-Benz SLS BRABUS Mercedes-Benz SLS Ride Control R197 OVERVIEW BRABUS has developed a Ride Control for the Mercedes-Benz SLS. The BRABUS Ride Control system can be controlled by pushing an elegant aluminum button, which is placed near the gear lever. The Ride Control system features advanced gas-pressure shocks for both the front and rear axles that will replace the production ones. Drivers are able to choose between two Ride Control settings, which include extra comfortable and sporty comfortable. This system has electronically controlled valves that open and/or close, which firm up the suspension. Switching between the two modes can be done while driving and only takes a second or even less. Overall, this Ride Control system is actually very useful.
