|Founded||1977; 44 years ago|
|Key people||Constantin Buschmann (CEO)|
It was the time of the seventies. People didn’t like the performance of the cars. The automotive enthusiasts desired to get their vehicles tweaked and increase the power.
A person named Bodo Buschmann wanted to customize his cars. But the customizers weren’t able to modify the car according to his expectations.
So, an idea stuck in Buschmann’s mind to establish his own automotive tuning business. As soon as he planned to set up the company, he gets Brabus GmbH registered with his friend Klaus Brackmann in 1967.
There is a German law which states that it requires a minimum of 2 members to establish a company. This lead to the partnership with Klaus Barackmann.

Why was the company named Brabus?
Brabus GmbH was founded by Bodo Buschmann and Klaus Brackmann. The company was named after the first three characters of the founders’ surnames (Brackmann, Buschmann).
Since Brackmann showed no interest in modifying vehicles or running a corporation, he sold his company shares to Buschmann for 100 euros.
