It wouldn’t be the Geneva Motor Show without some outrageous creation from Brabus and for this year’s event the German tuner hasn’t disappointed. Brabus has unveiled a new twin-turbocharged version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG supercar that promises an output of 522 kW and 848 Nm of torque.
Brabus engineers have developed a new twin-turbocharger system for the AMG 6.2-litre V8, which includes high-performance exhaust manifolds, an oversized intercooling system and a dual-flow intake manifold with high-flow air filters. Other modifications include forged pistons and a remapped ECU with an electronic boost controller. The end result is the aforementioned 522 kW and 848 Nm of torque, which in combination with the car’s seven-speed automatic transmission, will see acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and top speed come in at 340 km/h.
In addition to the sledgehammer of a powerplant, the modified Merc has also been fitted with Brabus’ Widestar bodykit and a fully customized interior complete with ambient lighting. Inside, there’s plenty of leather and Alcantara on most surfaces, as well as an ergonomically shaped sports steering wheel, a speedometer with a 400 km/h dial and matte or shiny carbon fibre elements in any desired color. Matte anodized aluminum pedals and foot rest add further sporty highlights.
