Brabus 800 Roadster based on Mercedes SL 65 AMG

The Brabus 800 Roadster, based on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG, will be presented at Geneva International Motor Show next week.


The heart of the car is the AMG V12 6.0-liter bi-turbo engine that develops a power of 630 HP (463 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque that propel the Brabus 800 Roadster from stand to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 4 seconds . The top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) is electronically limited. And all of these come in the standard version.



For the top model, much more modifications have been made by Brabus and now you can harvest a power of 800 HP (588 kW) and 1,047 lb-ft (1,420 Nm) of torque. The colossal amount of torque will be set just to 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm). The tuned engine will run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under 4 seconds, more exactly in 3.7 seconds and like in the standard version the top speed will be limited but this time at 217 mph (350 km/h).



For the tuned model Brabus is using, besides the power update, ultimate body materials like carbon fiber components. The aerodynamics of Brabus 800 Roadster has been tested in the wind tunnel. The carbon fiber body parts can be painted matte or glossy.



New tires with 255/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR20 (front/rear) that will wrap the 20-inch alloys and a new lowering suspension setup, which thanks to the special control module for the ABC suspension can go low with about an inch (25mm), are some upgrades that will refine handling and performance of this supercar.



And if you want more you can have a fully customized interior that includes a new speedometer that goes to 360 km/h dial and a limited-slip differential.
