Brabus unveils Mercedes-Benz GLK V12, world’s fastest SUV, in Dubai

We’re keeping with the broken world records, as after the BMW 335d prepped by AC Schnitzer took the world’s fastest diesel title, another German tuning company, Brabus, took the Mercedes-Benz GLK crossover and placed the massive 6.3-liter bi-turbo V12 engine under its bonnet, which develops 750 HP and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft), in order to break another record.

The engine, connected with a five-speed automatic gearbox, managed to take the GLK from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, reaching 200 km/h in 12.8 and stopping at 322.3 km/h, or 211 mph, making it the fastest street-legal SUV in the world.

Of course such a performance isn’t as simple as fitting a big engine into a car, as new intercoolers, free-flow metal catalysts and a stainless steel exhaust were also added. The outside wasn’t forgotten, as a carbon fiber spoiler lip, a new front apron with bigger air dams, Brabus widestar fender flares, underside LED lights and a new roof spoiler were added.

In case you want to catch a glimpse of the new Brabus GLK V12, you can see it at the Dubai International Motor Show, which starts today, and even buy it for a measly €397,000 (around $580,890).
