German tuner Brabus has stated to GTspirit exclusively that they will not develop a V12 version of the Brabus SLS AMG. The Germans are known for putting their V12 engine in any possible Mercedes-Benz, but in relation to the SLS AMG and the SLS AMG Roadster a clear decision has been made not to offer a V12-powered version to customers any time soon.
Sven Gramm, Brabus PR Manager, said:
The V8 Biturbo power plant is the better engine for the SLS, not that heavy and it provides a better weight balance. As well the characteristic of a V8 fits better to the sports car.
Stay tuned for more regarding the Brabus SLS AMG.
