ascends to a new level in the league of super sports cars. The
gullwing, further refined by an exclusive interior, reaches a top
speed of 340 km/h (213 mph) and celebrates its world debut at the
Geneva Motor Show 2011.
A high-tech turbocharger system for the high-tech engine of the SLS:
The BRABUS engine engineers have designed a state-of-the-art twin
turbo system for the fast-revving eight-cylinder four-valve engine
of the SLS.
The high-performance exhaust manifolds are optimized for exhaust-gas
flow and were custom-developed for this sports car. They drive the
two turbochargers. The chargers themselves are another BRABUS custom
development. For faster response and better efficiency both chargers
feature an air diverter valve.
V-engines are normally fitted with two right-turning chargers, which
entails drawbacks for the response characteristics. To eliminate
these drawbacks the BRABUS engineers have developed the B63 bi-turbo
system with a left-turning charger for the left side of the engine.
That allows the turbine and its inlet to be designed for perfect gas
flow and gas dynamics. The result is an outstanding engine with an
exemplary power curve.
The BRABUS engine conversion also includes a generously dimensioned
intercooling system with two water-to-air heat exchangers. The
dual-flow intake manifold gets its combustion air through a
package-optimized air filter housing and high-performance air
The company engine shop also modifies the inner workings of the
engine that like all BRABUS engines is lubricated exclusively with
fully-synthetic ARAL high-performance motor oil. Specially
manufactured BRABUS forged pistons reduce the compression ratio to
The newly programmed engine management system with special mapping
for ignition and injection orchestrates the perfect interaction of
the BRABUS high-performance components. The system also features an
integrated electronic boost pressure control. The result is an
engine that delivers its extreme power smoothly while meeting the
strict emission limits set by EURO V standards.
The exhaust side of the V8-engine is upgraded with free-flow
high-performance catalysts and the BRABUS high-performance exhaust
system that features four slanted tailpipes with diameters of 84
millimeters (3.2 in.). The BRABUS exhaust is made from ultra-light
titanium and weighs 12 kilograms (26 lbs.) less than the production
exhaust. A pneumatic flap system, controlled from the cockpit, adds
a “coming home” sound setting that is quieter than the production
exhaust. The alternatively selectable sport setting gives the
6.3-liter eight-cylinder engine an even throatier note than the
Powered by this engine the BRABUS 700 Biturbo is among the most
powerful super sports cars in the world. As the name indicates, the
engine produces a rated power output of 700 hp (690 bhp) / 514 kW at
6,600 rpm. The peak torque of 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) is already
available at a low 4,300 rpm.
In combination with the SPEEDSHIFT DCT seven-speed sport
transmission the resulting performance is breathtaking: The
two-seater car sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7
seconds and reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.2 seconds. Top speed is
340 km/h (213 mph).
To give the SLS also a sportier appearance the BRABUS WIDESTAR
wide-body version was developed in the wind tunnel. Like in Formula
1 racing all aerodynamic-enhancement components are manufactured
from lightweight yet high-strength carbon-fiber compounds. The body
components can be painted in body or contrasting color or finished
with a clear coat for a purebred racing look.
The BRABUS WIDESTAR flares on the rear axle add 20 millimeters (0.8
in.) to the width of the gullwing. They also facilitate the
installation of ultra-light forged wheels, which widen the track and
thus further improve driving dynamics. To put even more emphasis on
the wedge shape of the coupe the BRABUS Monoblock F “PLATINUM
EDITION” wheels are mounted in a staggered combination of size
9.5Jx20 wheels in front and size 11Jx21 on the rear axle. Despite
the fact that the wheels are larger than their production
counterparts they weigh up to 12 percent less. The wheels are either
ceramics-polished or come with a brushed-design surface. They can
also be painted any desired color. The high-performance tires in
sizes 275/30 ZR 20 and 295/25 ZR 21 are supplied by BRABUS
technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.
At the high speeds attained by the BRABUS 700 Biturbo aerodynamic
stability is absolutely essential. The BRABUS front spoiler reduces
lift on the front axle at high speed. Combined with the two BRABUS
covers for the upper air inlets in the apron it lends the SLS an
even more striking face.
For optimal aerodynamic balance BRABUS upgrades the rear with a
spoiler lip on the trunk lid and a diffuser. Additionally the rear
apron is fitted with side air outlets.
The sides of the gullwing are upgraded by the BRABUS gills for the
front fenders. At night their integrated, blue-illuminated BRABUS
lettering, activated by the keyless fob or by pulling on a door
handle, stands out immediately.
Sporty yet elegant side skirts create a perfect aerodynamic
transition between front and rear fenders. The cladding features
integrated entrance lights for safe entering and exiting of the
vehicle in the dark.
The BRABUS suspension was developed in cooperation with technology
partner BILSTEIN. It offers advantages both visual and driving
dynamics benefits. Those include a ride-height lowering by up to 30
millimeters (1.2 in.). The integrated ‘Ride Control’ function offers
the driver a choice between more comfortable or sportier damper
settings compared to the production car, all at the push of a button
in the cockpit.
BRABUS sport stabilizers on front and rear axle affect even more
agile turn-in ability and further reduced body roll.
The BRABUS Ride Control smooth-ride suspension is also available
with the optional BRABUS Front Lift system. BRABUS Front Lift can
raise the front axle by 50 mm (2.0 in.) and increases the approach
Custom-tailored interiors have been a special BRABUS domain for more
than three decades. The company upholstery shop crafts individual,
masterful exclusive interiors in any desired leather or Alcantara
color for the SLS as well.
These interiors are complemented by an ergonomically shaped sport
steering wheel, a speedometer with 400-km/h (250-mph) dial and matte
or shiny carbon-fiber elements in any desired color. Matte anodized
aluminum pedals and foot rest add further distinctly sporty
