Is it possible to make a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster even more exclusive and individual? BRABUS proves that the topless Mercedes supercar can be made even sportier and more exciting with its sophisticated customization program.
BRABUS, super tuner of all things Mercedes, will debut to the world its tuning package for the new Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster. In addition to the usual 20-inch Brabus wheel sets, the styling package is limited to a bolt-on front spoiler and rear diffussor. Both of these aerodynamic components which are made of exposed carbon fiber, were fine tuned through wind tunnel testing. Power output on the “old” 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine gets pumped up an additional 24hp and 18 kW to 650 hp / 478 kW via special camshafts, fuel cooling system and a high-performance exhaust. The tuned roadster sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 337 km/h (209 mph). A host of bespoke interior options are available as well.
