Essen Motor Show – Brabus Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster by Brabus

At this year’s edition of the Essen Motor Show, the German tuner Brabus has introduced its own version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. The car packs an extra 60 hp under its hood and comes fitted with a titanium high performance exhaust system that has “wake-up-your-neighbors” valves.

Under the hood of the SLS AMG is the same V8 6.3-liter engine found in the regular version but it has been updated in order to develop 611 hp (448 kW). To squeeze this additional power, Brabus remapped the ECU and installed a new exhaust system that has 3.3-inch tailpipes. This exhaust system weighs 26.5 lbs (12 kg) which makes it 40% lighter in comparison to the standard one. It features a set of butterfly valves that are automatically turned on when the driver selects the Sport mode.

The new body kit developed by Brabus for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster comes with new front and rear spoilers, a rear diffuser, side skirts and a boot lid fin. The vast majority of the parts added by the German tuner are made from carbon fiber in order to keep the weight of the car as down as possible.

Inside the cabin, the sexy roadster adopts a 250 mph (400 km/h) speedometer, stainless steel sill plates that have the Brabus logo, matte-anodized pedals and a sport steering wheel.

The car rides on a new set of 21- or 22-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped around in Yokohama, Pirelli or Continental tires. The SLS AMG Roadster has been lowered by 40 mm (1.6 inches) thanks to the Bilstein suspension. The driver can control the damper settings with the help of a button located on the car’s dashboard. The tuner is able to fit the car with its own Front Lift System that is very handy whenever you want to get the car over speed humps.
