Brabus SV12R: Mercedes-Benz S600 on heavy steroids
We all know Mercedes-Benz makes some gorgeous cars and, when coupled with their high performance engines, can put a smile on any car enthusiast’s face. But everything can be upgraded, at least according to the guys at Brabus which have taken the facelifted new Mercedes-Benz S600 and heavily modified both the interior and the exterior.
The result? The Brabus SV12R, a monster luxury car capable of developing 750 HP, all from the massive V12 engine, outfitted with larger turbos and a bigger displacement value of 6.3 liters, as opposed to the standard 5.5 value. The torque is limited to 1,100 Nm or 811 lb-ft, but it is still impressive nonetheless.
All that power goes to the rear wheels thanks to the tuned five-speed automatic transmission and, if you have a bit of extra money, through a special Brabus locking differential. All of these modifications makes this rocket reach 100 km/h or 60 mph in just 4 seconds, and you’ll be doing 200, or 124 mph in just 11.9 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited to “just” 340 km/h (211 mph).
Customers can opt for various 21-inch alloy wheels, which came in various designs and can be wrapped in either Pirelli or Yokohama tires, which come narrower at the front and beefier at the back.
Of course all of these mechanical upgrades are all packed with a sweet cosmetic one, as a new bodykit which includes LED lights in the front bumper, some aggressive side skirts and a rather decent boot lid spoiler finishing the back of the car with the quad tailpipes is included.
That’s the outside, which normally was the most important thing to Brabus, but on the inside, this new SV12R will include a custom designed Yachting trim, new from Brabus, which combines maple and tropical Wenge wood in order to create a sharp contrast with the exterior.
Look forward to more pics when the car will be revealed to the public at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
