Super-Tuned Euro Racecars

The Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster Gets Serious Makeover

— November 30, 2011 — Autos
The Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster is the latest model to get a serious upgrade from the German automaker’s super-tuning wing. Essentially receiving a complete overhaul form the original model, this road warrior will have gear heads everywhere swooning with delight.

When I first came across this magnificent vehicle, I was still uncertain to extent of changes made to the Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster. Let’s just say they have all been exhausted, and for the better. Let’s start with the body, and its new carbon fiber aerodynamic kit, which features new front and rear spoiler, side skirts and vents on the front and side fascia to reduce drag and increase speed. Brabus fitted the wheels with Monoblock F ‘Platinum Edition’ forged rims, 20-inches in the front, 21-inches in the rear. Most exciting are the power upgrades, with Brabus tuning the engine to churn out an agressive 600 horsepower.

Other performance upgrades include a titanium sports exhaust system and a Front Lift System which raises the front axel two inches to avoid speed bumps and other obstacles. The car automatically re-aligns the suspension once you hit 19 MPH (and you can travel through time if you get this bad boy up to 88 MPH. Just kidding).
