Brabus SL 800

When you see a number next to a class name of a certain Brabus model, the number is usually reserved for power rating. So, yes, this sleek matte convertible has 800 hp – and 1,420 Nm of torque.

The car is based on a R231 SL and its most recognizable feature is the matte gunmetal grey paint. Whether you like matte color or not, this car really looks great. Other visual upgrades include new front spoiler, side skirts, rear wing and an all new vented hood. The matte grey color is perfectly complemented by the same colored wheels and smoked lights.

However, we need to get back to the figure from the name. The 800 hp comes from a V12 twin turbo which was tuned by Brabus to the stated power and torque ratings. This kind of immense power gives this roadster the acceleration to 100 km/h of just 3.7 seconds and to 200 km/h in just 9.4. The top speed is at 350 km/h and if you thought that it is an interestingly even number, it is. This car’s top speed is limited to 350 km/h. For safety reasons, I assume.
