(from Brabus Press
Release) 730 hp / 537 kW of power, 1,320 Nm of torque and
a top speed of 340 km/h: With the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe based
on the latest Mercedes CL 600 model BRABUS presents the world’s
fastest and most powerful coupe.
At the heart of this exclusive automobile is the BRABUS SV12 S
Biturbo engine. It is based on the turbocharged Mercedes 600
twelve-cylinder engine and represents the most powerful street-legal
V12 engine in the world. Installing a special BRABUS crankshaft with
longer stroke, combined with a bigger bore and correspondingly sized
forged pistons, increases displacement from 5.5 to 6.3 liters.
Further engine modifications also include precision-machining the
cylinder heads and fitting them with four special camshafts.
In addition the engine peripherals are also modified extensively.
The modifications include special exhaust manifolds, two larger
turbochargers, a high-efficiency intercooler and a high-performance
exhaust system with metal catalysts and low back pressure. Extensive
bench tests determined the new programming for the engine
electronics that not only maximizes power yield but also ensures
that the engine meets stringent Euro IV emission limits.
Performance figures of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine
speak volumes: A rated power output of 730 hp / 537 kW at 5,100 rpm
is just as extraordinary as a peak torque of 1,320 Nm at just 2,100
rpm. In the car peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed
automatic transmission. The optionally available BRABUS locking
differential optimizes traction. All BRABUS drivetrain elements are
operated with ARAL high-performance lubricants.
The BRABUS S V12 S Biturbo coupe is not just the most powerful; it
is also the fastest street-legal of its kind. 0 – 100 km/h in 4.0
seconds, 200 km/h after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically
limited top speed of 340 km/h are all without equal.
The enormous performance of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe places
exceptionally high demands on the aerodynamic-enhancement parts that
were developed in the wind tunnel. The sophisticated shape of the
BRABUS front apron reduces lift on the front axle and improves
engine and front brake cooling due to its large air inlet.
Integrated fog lamps and high beams lend the car a characteristic
appearance and further improve active safety by optimizing
illumination of the road.
The BRABUS rocker panels optimize the airflow along the sides and
feature integrated entrance lights for safe entering and exiting of
the vehicle in the dark.
The BRABUS rear apron sports custom-tailored cutouts for the BRABUS
quad sport exhaust. Three LED lights integrated into the apron are
also activated via the keyless fob. An understated rear spoiler
rounds out the sophisticated BRABUS aerodynamics concept, and
reduces lift on the rear axle for further improved directional
stability at high speeds.
The enormous performance of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe is kept
safely in check at all times thanks to custom-tailored solutions for
tires, suspension and brakes. Among them are BRABUS Monoblock
light-alloy wheels with diameters of 18, 19, 20 or 21 inches. The
largest tire/wheel combination features BRABUS Monoblock VI and E
wheels in sizes 9Jx21 in front and 10.5Jx21 on the rear axle. The
largest corresponding tires are size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and size
295/30 ZR 21 in the rear. BRABUS recommends Pirelli and YOKOHAMA
The BRABUS module for the standard ABC suspension is specifically
calibrated to these high-performance tires, and lowers the ride
height of the two-door by some 25 millimeters. For further optimized
active safety the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe can be equipped with
the BRABUS high-performance brake system. Maximum fade-free stopping
power is provided on the front axle by 380 x 36 millimeter discs and
12-piston aluminum fixed calipers. The rear features 355 x 28
millimeter discs and six-piston aluminum fixed calipers.
BRABUS also fulfills any requests imaginable when it comes to
exclusive interior options. The list of products ranges from scuff
plates with illuminated BRABUS logo or an ergonomically shaped sport
steering wheel to an exclusive customized interior crafted from soft
yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and the finest Alcantara.
The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe can be ordered as a complete car
starting at 178,980 Euros or can be built based on an existing
current CL 600 model.
