Brabus Reveals Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster at Essen Motor Show

Essen Motor Show

Brabus has delivered yet another supreme styling and performance package; this time for the 2012 Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster.

Following the unveiling of their impressive aftermarket program for the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML, Brabus has released its latest creation: a 600hp beast based on the SLS AMG Roadster. Their exclusive program includes a carbon-fiber aerodynamic, 20- and 21-inch lightweight forged alloys, sport suspension, a Brabus B63 S tuning kit for the 6.3-liter V8 that bumps maximum power from 563 to 600hp and a titanium high-performance exhaust system with electronic sound management.

The dynamic profile has been achieved by adding a front spoiler to the underside of the production bumper, carbon-fiber covers for the upper air ducts, side skirts and newly-designed air vents in the front fenders. At the back the SLS Roadster gets an understated Brabus rear spoiler, side air vents for the rear fascia, and the Brabus quad exhaust with four distinctive tailpipes. The cross-spoke wheels are available with a high-gloss, ceramic polished or brushed finish, and the smooth-ride suspension ensures more agile handling, lowering the height by up to 40mm.

A Brabus Front Lift System can be added too, which will raise the roadster's front end by 50mm in a couple of seconds at the push of a button, so speed bumps and such can be easily navigated. The suspension will revert to its original position by repressing the button or when the car reaches 19mph. Among the interior upgrades, standout items include a 250-mph dial, a sport steering wheel and stainless-steel scuff plates with a backlit Brabus logo. The Brabus upholstery shop will also accommodate all requests, transforming leather and Alcantara into custom-tailored interior appointments in any color and design.

Trim sets in carbon-fiber and exotic-wood in any color and with all surface finish types are also offered. No details have yet been released about the availability and price of the Brabus Roadster.
