As well as a colossal 973 lb-ft of torque.
German tuner Carlsson arrived in Geneva last year with a stunning gold-coated S-Class, and the Mercedes specialist is looking to make an equally spectacular impact this year with its C25 Super GT Final Edition. Based on the Mercedes-Benz SL, the restyled roadster boasts a full carbon-fiber body and specially-designed headlights, taillights and rear-side and rear windows.
Coupled with a 160 kg drop in weight is a powerplant that delivers 450 hp if opting for the V8 engine, or a massive 753 hp and 973 lb-ft of torque if the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 is selected. Other options include carbon-ceramic brakes, a stainless-steel exhaust with aluminum tailpipe outlets, and an iPhone app that controls the C-Tronic suspension. Carlsson insists "no two C25s are alike" and that it will limit the C25 Super GT Final Edition to one unit per country. Buyers will have to wait 11 months from placing an order to the car being ready for delivery.
