Dubbed "the world's most powerful roadster", the Brabus 800 Roadster packs a
V12 biturbo engine with 789 hp and 1,047 lb-ft of torque.
The two-seater is based on the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG and sprints to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h). The exclusive equipment features also include Brabus carbon-fiber bodywork components designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency, custom-tailored Brabus wheels with diameters up to 20 inches and exclusive options for the cockpit.
Aerodynamic Enhancements Developed in Wind Tunnel
To master the car's enormous speeds at all times, a Brabus aerodynamic-enhancement kit for the SL65 was developed in the wind tunnel. All components are manufactured from carbon fiber.
The Brabus front spoiler attaches to the lower section of the bumper. It lends the roadster a more sporty appearance and reduces lift on the front axle. Brabus covers for the side air vents round out the striking front for the SL65 AMG.
The sides are refined with custom-tailored attachments for the air vents integrated into the front fenders and with rocker panels.
To achieve an optimal aerodynamic balance, the rear section is upgraded with a diffuser insert for the fascia.
Brabus adds even more luxury and custom features to the two-seat interior upon request as well. The product portfolio ranges from scuff plates with backlit Brabus logo and a speedometer with 360-km/h dial (220 mph) to carbon-fiber and wood trim sets in any color imaginable and with a variety of surface finishes.
The company upholstery shop crafts exquisite Brabus interiors from especially soft yet durable Brabus Mastik leather and Alcantara. A prime example for the precision craftsmanship is the leather-clad trunk of the show car at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show that features meticulous and precise honeycomb stitching throughout.
