Brabus presents Mercedes SL-Class

One of the well-known German tuners, Brabus, proposed some special work for the all-new Mercedes SL-Class. The greatest change now represents the high performance 730hp engine also found on the Brabus Rocket. This powerful engine enforces a five-speed automatic transmission plus a special Brabus limited-slip differential. This package's completed with a brand new sports exhaust system, some special suspension kit and high performance brake system. Having all this added the SL model can now reach 0-60mph (0-100km/h) in only 4 seconds flat plus up to 124 mph(200km/h) - 10.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 219 mph.

A 4.0 seconds sprint time from rest to 62 mph (100 km/h ), 10.5 seconds up to 200 km/h (124 mph) plus depending on ultimate drive ratio and tire speed rating, some electronically limited maximum speed of 219 mph (350 km/h) make the BRABUS Biturbo roadster SV12 S one of the fastest sports autos in the world.

BRABUS tuning's available also for the SL 65: BRABUS T 12 S performance kit rises power output with 40 hp (DIN and SAE net) / 29.4 kW. BRABUS T 65 S power kit set bumps power output up to 715 hp (705 hp SAE net) / 526 kW plus peak torque - 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
