BRABUS SV12 Biturbo: The Fastest Coupe?


 

 

BRABUS says its spin on the Mercedes-Benz CL600 results in the world’s fastest and most powerful coupe.

Starting with the Benz CL600, BRABUS bores out the cylinders and gives the crankshaft a longer stroke to boost displacement from 5.5 liters to 6.3 liters. The tuner claims it turns the Benz turbo V-12 into the most powerful street-legal V-12 in the world.

 

Other mods include new exhaust manifolds, larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooler, and a low-backpressure exhaust system, all of which meet current European emissions standard.

 

With the new running gear, including a five-speed automatic, BRABUS claims a final power output of 730 hp. A 0-62 mph acceleration time of 4.0 seconds and a limited top speed of 210 mph are also on their spec sheet.

 

Aero and performance add-ons help to reduce aero problems and increase stick. BRABUS says its aero kit cuts down on front-axle lift at speed and lets the engine breathe cooler air. The ABC suspension has been lowered by nearly an inch. Side panels and an integrated rear spoiler smooth out the airflow on the back end. And keeping it on the road are Monoblock wheels in sizes ranging from 18 to 21 inches.

 

Ready to sport around in the most powerful coupe in the world? It’ll cost you your U.S. passport and about $242,000.
