Brabus Breath on New Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Brabus has breathed on the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Oh my! Brabus has breathed on the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The result is that this after-market tuning company has unleashed a creature so spectacular that in makes grown men weak at the knees. So, brace yourself - approach this gull-winged coupé with extreme caution - and let's face this monstrous predator.

Brabus say that 'handling and ultra-lightweight' is the guiding principle of refining the new SLS AMG. Therefore their exclusive programme comprises of striking carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancements, lightweight alloy wheels, electronically adjustable suspension, and a titanium exhaust that increases power by 10bhp. Not much perhaps, but this 6.2-litre V8 now has 573bhp and hits 62mph in 3.8 seconds.

Brabus have also modified the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG's cabin. It now has a speedometer that records up to 400km/h (250mph), an ergonomically shaped steering wheel, stainless-steel scuff plates, and an illuminated Brabus logo. Motorists can also choose the colour of the sumptuous leather upholstery, then specify the finish for the centre console, dashboard, and door panels. What a car.
