Mercedes SL

Unless major surprise, the range of the new generation of the Mercedes SL is closed, and that soon the German firm has launched the offer conventional engines and the sporty SL 63 AMG and SL 65 AMG. From now probably start seeing numerous preparations on either version, since the SL has traditionally been one of the favorite models of tuning companies. An early Brabus was always on the ball about Mercedes is concerned.

So far have been limited to mundane changes on the Mercedes SL 500, away from the savagery of more than 800 hp that have made them so famous. However, it does have undertaken an enhancement of its 4.7 V8 biturbo engine that delivers 435 hp standard and 700nm. Thanks to the reprogramming of the electronics and small changes in engine power has increased to 520 hp with a maximum torque of 820 Nm. The seven-speed automatic transmission remains unchanged.

Mercedes SLWith this new power, the Brabus Mercedes SL 500 accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 300 km / h, but can keep the speed limit of 250 km / h or increase it 275 km / h. More changes have also added to the mechanical chassis which can be mounted on the Mercedes SL 350 (304 hp V6). Thus, in both versions can equip a limited slip differential and a new suspension that lowers the ride height by up to 25 mm.

Mercedes SLAesthetically too much to say, as Brabus offers a full aero kit consisting of new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a rear spoiler and new sets of tires available in diameters from 18 to 20 inches. Inside, leather upholstery offer dozens of colors, carbon-fiber inserts or various types of wood, doors receivers illuminated BRABUS and, as a curiosity, a new speedometer marked increases the maximum speed to 320 km / h.

For now we have to settle with these modifications pending variants bearing the most brutal, both for aesthetics and performance.
