and most powerful luxury coupe at the 2011 DUBAI INTERNATIONAL MOTOR
SHOW. In addition to its unique performance the two-door car’s most
impressive features are its exclusive sporty-elegant design and its
The 12-cylinder engine of the CL 600 is reengineered thoroughly in
the BRABUS engine-building shop that is equipped with
state-of-the-art machine tools. Displacement is increased from 5.5
to 6.3 liters (336 to 384 cu. in.) with the help of a special BRABUS
crankshaft with longer stroke, larger cylinder bore and
correspondingly larger forged pistons. Further performance-enhancing
modifications to the engine itself are the fine-machining of the two
cylinder heads for optimized mixture flow and the installation of
four special camshafts.
The engine peripherals are modified extensively as well: the
standard twin-turbo system is replaced with a high-end turbocharging
system designed by the BRABUS engine specialists. The new system
features two custom exhaust manifolds with integrated turbine
housings and high-performance turbochargers as well as four
water-to-air intercoolers. The combustion air is supplied by a
carbon-fiber ram-air intake integrated into the hood. In addition
there is a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with
free-flow metal catalysts.
Precision-programmed mapping for injection and ignition coordinate
the optimal interaction of the high-performance components in order
to achieve not only maximum power yield but also to meet strict
current EURO V emission limits. The high-tech lubricants for the
entire powertrain are supplied by technology partner ARAL.
As a result of the extensive modifications the BRABUS 800 V12
Biturbo engine delivers unparalleled performance figures: the engine
produces its maximum rated power output of 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW
at a low 5,500 rpm. Even more colossal is the peak torque of 1,420
Nm (1,047 ft-lb) available from 2,100 rpm. In the car peak torque is
limited electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 ft-lb).
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic
transmission that has been reinforced to handle the enormous power,
and the BRABUS high-performance limited-slip differential with a
locking rate of 40 percent. Naturally the BRABUS 800 Coupe retains
all modern vehicle stability systems that can be deactivated at the
push of a button.
This engine under the hood makes the BRABUS 800 Coupe the world’s
most powerful and fastest four-seat luxury coupe. From rest the
exclusive two-door car sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9
seconds and reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) after a mere 10.3 seconds.
Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
These extremely fast speeds place especially high demands on the
aerodynamic-enhancement components that were developed in the wind
tunnel. The sophisticated shape of the BRABUS front spoiler that
attaches to the production fascia reduces lift on the front axle for
further improved directional stability at high speed.
To achieve a precise aerodynamic balance BRABUS equips the CL with
an understated rear spoiler on the trunk lid and a rear fascia
insert. The insert replaces its production counterpart in the bumper
and features a central reflector as well as one custom-tailored
cutout on either side to provide the perfect backdrop for the four
tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust system.
Exciting design, top-notch quality and further improved driving
dynamics are the outstanding characteristics of the BRABUS Monoblock
wheels, which are available for the Mercedes CL-Class with diameters
ranging from 18 to 22 inches. To make safe use of the car’s
impressive performance requires BRABUS Monoblock 21-inch wheels,
available as Monoblock VI, E or F designs. BRABUS technology
partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply tried and tested
high-performance tires in size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and size 295/25
ZR 21 on the rear axle.
The BRABUS ride-height lowering module for the standard ABC
suspension is specifically calibrated to these ultra-low-profile
tires, and lowers the body of the two-door car by some 25
millimeters (1 inch).
To keep the stunning performance safely in check at all times the
BRABUS 800 Coupe comes equipped with version IV of the BRABUS
high-performance brake system. The front axle is fitted with
six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and vented and cross-drilled
discs measuring 405 x 34 millimeters (16 x 1.3 in.). Together with
discs measuring 380 x 34 millimeters (15.0 x 1.34 in.) and 4-piston
fixed aluminum calipers on the rear axle the system delivers
outstanding stopping power and endurance.
The interior received a high-class upgrade to match the car’s
diamond-white metallic paint finish. The BRABUS upholsterers
masterfully crafted an interior from a combination of white leather
and black Alcantara, each with contrasting seams and diamond-pattern
topstitching. Carbon-fiber elements in the cockpit add a markedly
sporty touch. Their matte surfaces in “checkered flag” design make
them textbook eye-catchers.
An ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel is also part of the
extraordinary BRABUS interior refinement as are scuff plates with
backlit BRABUS logo, and aluminum pedals, foot rest and shifter.
The BRABUS 800 Coupe is available as a complete vehicle or can be
built based on any current Mercedes CL 600 model.
