Brabus Mercedes SLR

Check out the exclusive BRABUS Sport Program for the Mercedes McLaren SLR!

The Brabus tweaked Mercedes McClaren SLR lets owners of the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz models further individualize their vehicles. I recently did a post about the 2007 Mercedes SLR but and I can’t even imagine how fast the 2007 SLR will be after getting a few Brabus upgrades.

BRABUS equips the SLR with a special self-locking differential. Its 40 percent locking rate further optimizes the super sports car’s traction and thus further improves acceleration.

In BRABUS Racing version with performance-improving fuel cooling, custom camshafts and an open racing exhausts system maximum power output of the supercharged V8 engine increases to 660 hp at 6,500 rpm. One downer is that the exhaust system is not certified for use on public roads. The Brabus SLR now jolts to 62pmh in just 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of up to 340 km/h (If you convert that to MPH it equils = REALLY FREEKIN FAST).

For further improved directional stability at high speeds the BRABUS designers developed a new spoiler for the front air dam. The exposed-carbon aerodynamic-enhancement part reduces lift on the front axle. The rear diffuser is also made from exposed carbon.

The conversion to the BRABUS 20-inch tire/wheel combination gives the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren even more dynamic handling prowess.

BRABUS also adds new sporty and exclusive highlights in the interior. The company-own upholstery shop created a BRABUS interior from an exclusive black and red combination of leather and Alcantara, perfectly crafted down to the last detail. The waffle-design stitching of the SLR leather floor is especially elaborate and it alone uses 7,800 meters of the finest thread.

For easier entering and exiting BRABUS manufactured a custom BRABUS sport steering wheel with an ergonomically shaped rim that is flat on the bottom. For manual shifting of the SLR’s automatic transmission the BRABUS steering wheel features buttons integrated into the spokes.

The BRABUS interior designers developed precise-fit applications for dashboard, center console and door panels, all made from exposed carbon. They extend the BRABUS exterior carbon look into the interior.

    The 2007 SLR does 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds already (or when it comes out anyway). :)
