Official: Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

German tuner Brabus has finally revealed their program for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The introduction follows after initial talks GTspirit had with people from Brabus at the Goodwood Festival of Speed a few months ago.

The front fascia of the coupe has the new Brabus front spoiler. The spoiler further reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds. The two Brabus covers for the upper air inlets in the bumper lend provide better cooling air supply. The new air outlets for the front fenders feature a modern design with integrated blue-illuminated Brabus lettering. The illumination is activated via the keyless-entry remote or by pulling on a door handle.

The rear appearance of the Mercedes SLS AMG has the Brabus rear spoiler and the Brabus rear fascia element that features custom-tailored cutouts for the four exhaust tips of the Brabus sport exhaust system. All components are available either made from clear-coated carbon fiber for a true racing flair or can be painted to match or contrast with the car’s exterior color.

Forged wheels are custom-developed for the SLS. You can choose for a staggered tire/wheel combination with diameters of 20 inches in front and 21 inches on the rear axle. The ultra-light Brabus Monoblock F Platinum Edition cross-spoke wheels are up to twelve percent lighter than the stock wheels and are mounted in size 9.5Jx20 in front and in size 11Jx21 on the rear axle. The wide high-performance tires in sizes 275/30 ZR 20 and 295/25 ZR 21 are supplied by Pirelli and Yokohama.

The height-adjustable Brabus smooth-ride suspension can lower the ride height of the sports car by up to 40mm (1.6 inches). At the push of a button the driver can choose between damper settings that offer a more comfortable or sportier ride compared to the production suspension. To complement this suspension Brabus will soon offer the Brabus Front Lift system. It raises the front of the car by some 50mm (2 inches) at the push of a button to safely navigate steep parking ramps or other obstacles.

While engine tuning for the 6.3 liter V8 is still in the final development phase. A lightweight Brabus titanium sport exhaust system is available and has four slanted exhaust tips. The tips have a diameter of 84mm (3.3 inches). This exhaust system weighs 12kgs (26lbs) or 40 percent less than the production exhaust and adds an extra ten horsepower to the engine’s output. The exhaust features a pneumatically controlled bypass gate that is activated from the cockpit.

For the cockpit you can get a speedometer with 400km/h scale (250 mph). An ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel is also part of the Brabus customization program as are stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated Brabus logo and matteanodized pedals.

Individual requests for the trim on dashboard, center console and door panels can be taken into account. You can get carbon fiber and wood trim sets in any color and with any desired surface finish. Same goes for any type of leather and Alcantara in any desired color and design.
