Brabus will showcase in Geneva next week the 800 Roadster based on the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG. The standard variant is powered by an AMG V12 6.0-liter bi-turbo engine producing 630 HP (463 kW) and 737 lb-ft (1,000 Nm) of torque. Brabus has tuned this mill to output 800 HP (588 kW) and an impressive 1,047 lb-ft (1,420 Nm) of torque which will be limited to 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm).
While the stock version completes the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4 seconds, this heavily modified variant will do it in 3.7 seconds, on its way to an electronically-limited top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) as opposed to the regular model which is limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).
Aside from the power boost, Brabus is also offering an aerodynamic body kit for the roadster which has been developed in the wind tunnel. All components are made from carbon fiber and can get a matte or a glossy finish in the body's color.
20-inch alloys are supplied by Brabus with 255/30 ZR20 and 305/25 ZR20 (front/rear) high-performance tires. The ride height can be lowered by about an inch (25mm) thanks to the special control module for the ABC suspension. Other goodies include a limited-slip differential and a fully customized interior with a new speedometer featuring a 360 km/h dial.
