When we hear of Brabus, it’s definitely clear that a Merc has been tuned. And this time it’s a tuning program for the 2013 Mercedes SL-class. This should be interesting!

The interior of the car has been fitted with top notch leather upholstery, wood and carbon fiber trim, a new speedometer that tops out at 320 km/h or 360 km/h (200 mph or 225 mph) and illuminated sill plates. Under the car, a limited-slip differential has been mounted, alongside a revised suspension with sports springs for the SL 350 or a reprogrammed Active Body Control (ABC) module which lowers the car by around 25 millimeters.

The exterior can be decked with a body kit which sports front fender vents, spoiler mounted on the trunk, revised side skirts, and, of course, new front and rear bumpers. There’s also a sports exhaust system available for order and Monoblock rims that measure from 18 inches to 20 inches in diameter.

The most interesting part, though, is the engine. The SL 500 (550) can be fitted with a 520 PowerXtra CGI power kit which raises the output of the twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 engine to 512 HP (382 kW) and 820 Nm (604 lb-ft) of torque. Thus, the SL can reach an electronically limited top speed of 250, 275 or 300 km/h (155, 172 or 186 mph) and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds.
