Beastie Black Brabus Benz

The car can ac­cel­er­ate from rest to 100km/h in 3.6 sec­onds, to 200km/h in 9.8 sec­onds

Geelong Advertiser - Motoring - - NEWS -

IT’S the most pow­er­ful pro­duc­tion Benz of all time, but that didn’t stop the boys at Brabus from turn­ing up the wick.

Equipped with T65 RS tun­ing the al­ready high-per­for­mance MercedesBenz SL65 Black de­liv­ers a stag­ger­ing 588kW of power.

Weigh­ing in at 1795kg, the car can ac­cel­er­ate from rest to 100km/h in 3.6 sec­onds, to 200km/h in 9.8 sec­onds and on to a top speed of more than 330km/h.

This par­tic­u­lar car is fin­ished in a spe­cial Brabus matte black, with cus­tom-de­signed per­son­alised lo­gos on the il­lu­mi­nated scuff plates and the speedome­ter.

The T65 RS 6.0-litre V12 engine de­liv­ers 588kW of power at 5500rpm and an even more impressive 1420Nm of peak torque from a low 2100rpm, but peak torque is lim­ited elec­tron­i­cally to 1100Nm.

A stan­dard SL65 AMG Black pro­duces 493kW and 1000Nm of torque.

The tun­ing kit in­cludes a Brabus hi-tech twin turbo sys­tem that in­cludes two spe­cial ex­haust man­i­folds with in­te­grated tur­bine hous­ings and high-per­for­mance tur­bocharg­ers.

Four gen­er­ously-sized in­ter­cool­ers are placed be­neath the space cre­ated by the Brabus car­bon-fi­bre hood scoop.

The spe­cial Brabus stain­less-steel high-per­for­mance ex­haust sys­tem with free-flow metal cat­a­lysts was specif­i­cally de­signed for the Black Series power up­grade.

The engine elec­tron­ics have been re­pro­grammed with spe­cial map­ping for in­jec­tion and ig­ni­tion co-or­di­nate the per­fect in­ter­ac­tion of all high­per­for­mance com­po­nents and at the same time en­sure that the engine meets strict EURO IV emis­sion lim­its.

The hi-tech lu­bri­cants for the en­tire pow­er­train are sup­plied by tech­nol­ogy part­ner ARAL.

Apart from the me­chan­i­cal up­grades to achieve the ex­tra out­put the Brabus up­hol­stery shop creates a spe­cial sporty and lux­u­ri­ous interior to cus­tomers ex­act spec­i­fi­ca­tions, down to the last de­tail.

All com­po­nents are avail­able for any Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series.
