The 2013 Mercedes SL-class has recently received some very special attention from famous Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus. In terms of looks, the improvements include redesigned side skirts, a trunk spoiler, new bumpers, and front fender vents. Further modifications are optional and include a sports exhaust system and Monoblock wheels between 18 and 20 inches.
Inside the car, changes include new fine leather upholstery, carbon fiber or wood trims, illuminated sill plates, and a new speedometer that can reach 200 or 225 mph. In terms of performance, the upgraded SL will have its top speed limited to 155, 170, or 186 mph, while the 0-62 mph sprint will be completed in only 4.4 seconds.
All this is possible thanks to the introduction of a 520 PowerXtra CGI power kit, which helps the 4.7-liter V8 engine deliver 512 horsepower and 604 pound-foot of torque. To complete the upgrade, Brabus can also equip the car with new suspensions boasting sports springs, a limited slip differential, and a reprogrammed Active Body Control module that brings the car 25 mm (almost an inch) closer to the ground.
