BRABUS GLK V12 based on Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class

The new BRABUS GLK V12 had its official debut at the Dubai International Motor Show. It had managed to set a new record with a top speed of 322.3 km/h. its 12-cylinder twin turbo engine is capable of developing 750 horsepower and 1.350 Nm of torque, electronically limited in the car to 1.100 Nm of torque. The tuner built this high-performance model based on the Mercedes GLK-Class. Its basic price was set for EUR397.000. For maximum power yield, the Brabus specialists have developed a special twin turbo system with two larger turbochargers and more efficient intercoolers. Custom-programmed engine electronics ensure an optional symbiosis of power yield, running smoothness and especially eco-friendly exhaust emissions. The BRABUS GLK V12 is also equipped with the latest driving dynamics systems such as ABS, ASR and ESP. it uses a reinforced 5-speed automatic transmission and a BRABUS limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40% to send the power to the rear wheels. These enable the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and to 200 km/h in 12.8 seconds. All this is possible thanks to the BRABUS aerodynamics, suspension and brakes. The front apron of the BRABUS WIDESTAR version was developed in the wind tunnel. Favorable aerodynamic properties were also a top priority for the design of the BRABUS WIDESTAR fender flares on the front and rear axle. In the rear, the roof spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift and thus makes an important contribution to the excellent directional stability of the fastest SUV in the World. Specially-made cutouts on the right and left side provide the perfect backdrop for the four characteristically shaped tailpipes of the BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust system. The interior of the model was also redesigned to reflect the exclusive character of this unique SUV.
