Brabus CL 600 T13

The CL 600 received a tuning kit, called the T13 from BRABUS that increases the power with 113 horsepower / 83 kW. It includes special turbochargers, a better inter-cooling system and low-back-pressure metal catalysts. The tuned engine will not only deliver excellent performance, but also very low emissions that enter the Euro IV limits. The 155 mph limit was eliminated. Now the model can deliver 630 horsepower and 738 Nm of torque. The new Mercedes CL 600 is able to reach a top speed of 203 mph and it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The power is being sent to the rear wheels through a new five-speed automatic transmission. All the components used by BRABUS are operated with Aral high-performance lubricants.
