The Mercedes Benz SLR Roadster is one cool supercar and everybody agreed on that. Apparently, the guys at Brabus didn’t think so and thought that it’s place for better, so they came up with this, the Brabus SLR Roadster, which is definitely a hot tuning program for the Merc. The car is powered by the same 5.5 liter supercharged V8 engine, but, with special camshafts, fuel cooling system and high-performance exhaust, Brabus engineers managed to squeeze another 24 hp, so it now develops 650 hp, sprints from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.6 seconds and reaches 209 mph (337 km/h) top speed.

And, of course, the Brabus SLR Roadster also got a new bodykit, with a new exposed carbon fiber front spoiler, Brabus rear diffuser and fully polished Brabus Monoblock VI 20 inch wheels, fitted with Pirelli and Yokohama tires. As you’d expect, the even more exclusive roadster got some exquisite interior features, like custom upholstery designs and a multitude of leather types and colors, waffle-patterned leather carpeting and Brabus carbon-fiber applications for dashboard, center console and door trim.

The car is currently on display at the Essen Motor Show, in Germany and you can see more photos of the super roadster after the jump.
