The New Brabus 800 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Heads to Geneva

 

Every March, Geneva, Switzerland plays host to a vast array of automakers, car companies, media, and automotive enthusiasts as they showcase their newest models, innovative products, and newest technologies. Many automakers from around the world use the auto show as a platform to showcase their new models along with other aftermarket car tuning companies such as Brabus. At the 2013 Geneva International Auto Show, the German car tuning company will unveil its new 800 high performance model that boasts incredible speed and power along with exclusive luxuries. Based on the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG, the new 800 model takes the German sports car to a whole other level of performance, luxury, and style.

The Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG is one of the most powerful models in the SL-Class range, save for the hardcore, track-inspired SL 65 AMG Black Series Coupe. The SL 65 AMG model offers a great deal of drivability and comfort over its Black Series sibling, so it was the perfect choice for Brabus to upgrade into its new 800 model. The upgrade starts with a new exterior design package that equips the super car with a new front bumper with integrated spoiler and new engine hood with ventilation to cool the engine more efficiently. New side skirts run towards the rear where a new trunk spoiler and rear diffuser help to generate downforce at high speeds for better stability.

The German engineering team then focused on the engine of the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG. The super car comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12 engine that is packed with potential. Engineers were able to tap into this potential through the use of the Brabus T65 engine upgrade program that pushes power to the 800-horsepower mark. The upgrades included in the program include two new turbochargers, a set of four water-to-air intercoolers, a new air intake system, a new stainless steel exhaust with sport catalytic converters, and a new ECU tune with performance mapping. After the T65 engine program is installed, the motor creates 800 horsepower and 1,420 Newton Meters of torque at the rear wheels that had to be electronically limited to 1,100 Newton Meters.

Due to the tremendous power being created by the 6.0-liter V-12 engine, Brabus engineers had to reinforce many parts of the chassis and drivetrain. A new in-house differential was installed at the rear axle to help achieve better grip and handle the extra power. The factory ABC air suspension was upgraded with a new electronic module that can automatically lower the ride height of the 800 model.

Inside the 800 model, customers will be able to custom-design the entire cockpit with a range of soft leather and alcantara fabrics. A host of trim pieces, wood, and carbon fiber finishes are also available for the dashboard, console, and doors. Customers can even opt for custom stitching for an extra special touch of luxury.

  5. I observed that you will find a number of different divisions for Mercedes, for example Brabus, Lorinser, AMG and so on, but does anybody be aware of variations between these for example cost, energy, style etc. or are these equal but different racing divisions?

  6. Yesterday I had been lucky enough to get visit a Brabus Rocket… having a flat tire (that must definitely be costly to correct). Anyway, I had been researching this vehicle and was amazed to determine the cost of these a vehicle has ended $400,000 and I’m wondering the number of of these happen to be created.

  7. I’ve read a few recommendations regarding cold air intake to obtain additional hewlett packard for CL500. I’m not sure anything about this and may somone recommend any sort of manufacturer of those products? Also could someone recommend nick tuning in my vehicle? I attempted to google that, but in some way only stuff for American Cars show up, or AMG, Brabus etc.. that are too costly.
