(from Brabus Press
Release) The Maybach – regardless of whether in version 57
or 62 – represents the pinnacle of modern automotive engineering.
Refining such a luxury sedan is very special and therefore BRABUS (www.brabus.com)
uses only its very best engineers, technicians, designers
and upholsterers to work on this project.
BRABUS adds even more new, exclusive highlights to the interior of
the luxury sedan. The interior designers from BRABUS created an
interior crafted from the finest leather and Alcantara, further
enhanced by color-contrasted decorative seams. More than 1.2
kilometers of the finest thread are used in the waffle-design
leather upholstery of the driveshaft tunnel. It is combined with
custom-tailored BRABUS floor mats made from the finest lambskin.
The BRABUS developers further designed additional interesting
features for the standard entertainment system of the Maybach. The
16:9 color monitors of the BRABUS equipment are integrated into the
back of the front seatbacks and measure 15.2 inches (production: 9
At the push of a button the Maybach is transformed into a luxurious
office on wheels: The monitors serve as computer screens for a
computer custom-developed for use in a car. It features an 80
Gigabyte hard drive and is connected to the Internet at up to 1.5
times the speed of ISDN using a W-LAN and a fourplex GPRS router.
For comfortable operation the system features a handy wireless
keyboard and a wireless optical gyro mouse.
A USB 2.0 port harmoniously integrated into the center console
allows connecting peripherals such as printers or digital cameras.
To stay online even outside the car the BRABUS communication
specialists integrated an IBM X-series notebook into an electrically
operated drawer in the trunk. The notebook is also connected via
W-LAN to the car's computer network.
An additional 6-disc DVD changer rounds out the BRABUS interior for
Externally a Maybach refined by BRABUS can be distinguished by its
custom-tailored BRABUS Monoblock VI light-alloy wheels with 21-inch
diameter. The fully polished multi-piece wheels with six double
spokes fill out the wheel houses of the Maybach perfectly. The rims
come in size 9.5Jx21 on the front axle and in size 11Jx21 in the
rear axle. Dunlop contributes high-performance tires in size 285/40
R 21 on the front axle and in size 325/35 R 21 in the rear.
The BRABUS air suspension unit lowers the ride height of the Maybach
by about 15 millimeters without compromising its unique ride
BRABUS further refines the elegant lines of the Maybach with two
auxiliary headlights integrated stylishly into the production front
apron using two precise-fitting inserts. The auxiliary headlights
function as daytime running lights.
Its 550-hp / 405-kW twelve-cylinder bi-turbo engine makes the
Maybach a powerful car ex factory. BRABUS makes the sedan even more
superior with the BRABUS SV12 bi-turbo increased-displacement engine
using the tried and proven method of increasing displacement, in
this case from standard 5.5 to 6.3 liters.
To facilitate the increase in displacement BRABUS fits the engine
with a special crankshaft with longer stroke, precision-balanced
piston rods and larger pistons. In addition the bore is increased
and the cylinder heads are re-machined. Also part of the conversion
are custom camshafts, newly programmed engine electronics and an
exhaust system with metal catalysts, and dual oval-shaped exhaust
After the conversion the twelve-cylinder bi-turbo engine delivers a
maximum power output of 640 hp / 471 kW at 5,100 rpm and a gigantic
peak torque of 1,026 Nm, available from 1,750 rpm.
Performance of the luxury sedan benefits accordingly: With BRABUS SV
12 engine the Maybach 57 accelerates bin just 4.9 seconds from 0 –
100 km/h. Top speed is an electronically limited 300 km/h. BRABUS
exclusively uses ARAL high-performance lubricants in engine,
automatic transmission and rear-axle differential.
