BRABUS, super tuner of all things Mercedes, will debut to the world its tuning package for the new Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster. In addition to the usual 20-inch Brabus wheel sets, the styling package is limited to a bolt-on front spoiler and rear diffussor. Both of these aerodynamic components which are made of exposed carbon fiber, were fine tuned through wind tunnel testing. Power output on the “old” 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine gets pumped up an additional 24hp and 18 kW to 650 hp / 478 kW via special camshafts, fuel cooling system and a high-performance exhaust. The tuned roadster sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 337 km/h (209 mph). A host of bespoke interior options are available as well. See release below for details.
