Brabus 800 Roadster visits Geneva Motor Show

Brabus launched in Geneva this week its upgrade program for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG.

The German tuner tweaked the bi-turbo AMG 6.0-liter V12 engine increasing its output from 630 HP (463 kW) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) to 800 HP (588 kW) and a limited 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft). As a result, the roadster hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds (0.3s quicker) and reaches a limited top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h), whereas the standard model is limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).

Matching the additional horsepower is a new carbon fiber body kit developed in the wind tunnel and 20-inch wheels with high-performance tires. The Brabus 800 Roadster can be lowered by 25mm through a new control module for the ABC suspension, while other new parts include a limited slip differential, speedometer and a modified interior cabin.
