700-hp Brabus Mercedes SLS Roadster UnveiledThursday, November 24, 2011 15:16 by Arman Barari
Brabus announced its latest creation, a 700-hp monster based on the new Mercedes SLS Roadster, to be reveal at the Essen Motor Show.
Official details of the car are yet to be released, the similarities between this and the hard-top Barbus SLS kinda make them easy to guess. Brabus recipe remains always the same: a subtle yet effective body kit, huge wheels in black, upgraded brakes, springs, active body control, and a reinforced gearbox to handle the torque of the heavily tuned engine.
That said the aero kit is different in places, probably because the Roadster has different characteristics than its gullwing brother and they need to re-engineer it.
It’s not a very pretty car to be honest, you could even call it ostentatious. But it’s got the presence, and one thing’s for sure, it’s gonna be hella fast! More details at the Essen Motor Show November 26.
