Probably everyone knows who Brabus is and what it does. It’s that German tuner which transforms Mercedes cars into expensive beasts. And here is their latest creation, the tuning program for the recently introduced Mercedes Benz SL facelift. As expected, the performance figures are impressive. The car is powered by the 730hp 6.3-liter twin-turbo V12 originally developed for the Brabus Rocket (SL 600 only) mated to a reinforced five-speed automatic transmission and a special Brabus limited-slip differential. High performance upgrades include a new sports exhaust system, a special suspension kit and the Brabus high performance brake system. Powered by this engine, the cars sprints from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in just 4 seconds and up to 124mph (200km/h) in 10.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 219 mph (350km/h).

Considering its performances, the body kit not only gives the car a striking look, but it also improves the aerodynamics, to make sure nothing unexpected happens. The front bumper is replaced by the Brabus front apron featuring LED daytime running lights and high beam and fog lights, the rocker panels have three entrance lights which illuminate the floor around the vehicle. Also available are 17, 18, 19 and 20 inch one-piece and multi-piece light alloy rims.

Of course, the interior is top class, featuring scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS-logo, an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel with shift paddles, and an exclusive BRABUS custom interior crafted from an exquisite combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara.
