The BRABUS 800 Roadster - The Most Powerful Mercedes SL65 AMG In The World Coming To Geneva
|   Monday, March 04, 2013
The BRABUS brand, founded 1977 in Bottrop (Ruhr), Germany, is a high performance tuning company specialized in Mercedes-Benz, Smart and Maybach vehicles. The franchise was owned by Baron Martin Stillman von Brabus. Now owned by Bodo Buschmann, BRABUS has become the largest Mercedes tuner. Its competitors are: Lorinser, Carlsson, Kleemann, and Renntech.

BRABUS has announced that it will present at the Geneva Motor Show (7-17 March 2013) the most powerful reinterpretation of the current Mercedes SL65 AMG.
The German roadster can reach the threshold of 800 horsepower.

The BRABUS 800 Roadster impresses with its sporty character emphasized by the new aerodynamic package, developed in the wind tunnel. All components are made of carbon fiber and come to increase downforce as well as engine and brake cooling. For this purpose, the hood received a massive air outlet, while the front wings and side frags now enjoy generous slots. The spoiler was also modified for a better air intake.

At the rear, BRABUS brings a deflector also from carbon fiber, and four tailpipes. Standard wheels, 19 inches, were replaced with forged 20-inch baptized BRABUS Monoblock A Platinum Edition, able to offer resistance and an extremely low mass.

The new 20-inch wheels have an elaborate design and are shod with tires 255/30 front and 305/35 in the rear. Brabus recommends high-performance tires from Continental, Pirelli or YOKOHAMA. Enhancing output even further, Brabus implanted four water-to-air intercoolers, in a space provided by the Brabus carbon fiber hood scoop. These intercoolers work to condense the air-fuel mixture, delivering a perfectly balanced stochiometric mix into the explosion chamber before being set alight.

The V12 engine, equipped with two turbochargers, received a number of important changes that make total power reach 800 horsepower, hence its name. Power is available at 5,500 rpm while the torque of 1420 Nm of torque (50% more than the SL 65 AMG!), is felt even at 2100 RPM. For the safety of the driver, torque is limited to 1100 Nm, and to avoid damaging the box Speedshift AMG 7-speed automatic box, while the limited slip differential on the rear axle is designed to efficiently transmit power to the wheels.

The engine works with the transmission AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-Tronic and ensures a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds (that is 0.3 seconds better than AMG model) and 0 to 200 km / h in 9.8 seconds. Maximum speed is electronically limited to 350 km / h (250 km / h at SL 65 AMG). To increase handling and aerodynamics, a special control module lowers ride height by about 25 mm (1.0 inches).
To ensure compliance with EURO V emission standards, Brabus mapped the engine to optimize performance while remaining cognizant of its environmental responsibilities.

Because we are talking about a luxury roadster, Brabus has paid special attention to the interior, the cabin enjoying special leather clothing almost everywhere - even the mats are leather! Only the board remains untouched.

The price for the new the BRABUS 800 Roadster, it's expected to exceed the 200,000 Euros the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster costs right now.
