Default Spotted Mercedes C 220 with Brabus D3 kit

Spotted this car today. Had Brabus D3 on the rear. I wonder if it is really a brabus or just a kit. Sounded superb and went like a bullet.

It's a C-class right ? Why is it named D3 ?

Is it something like the Brabus Rocket which was actually a CLS ?

Thats a 50% jump on the power in my C220 CDI. Must be a stonker on the road, though have my doubts on how a stock drivetrain can handle that.
