Brabus Brings Matte-Black SLR to Geneva


We normally rag on the dozes of different SLR models that the Mercedes/McLaren partnership has come out with but this Brabus model is something else.

Based on a SLR roadster, Brabus has done just some mild work under the hood with new camshafts that bring the power output to 650hp at 6500 rpm. This is enough, says Brabus, to let the SLR accelerate to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds. In true Brabus style the SLR has an outrageous top speed - 213 mph to be exact.

Other performance modifications include a self-locking differential.

As for that matte-black body, well, it's more than just a paint job. This SLR actually features Brabus' new front lip, which reduces lift on the front axle.

Also shown on this model are a mean set of black Brabus Monoblock IV wheels, measuring 20×9.5-inches up front and 20×11.5-inches in the rear. The tires are 255/30/20 front and 305/25/20 rear.

Brabus might be most famous for it's high performance engines, but the company is equally qualified at outfitting a car's interior. This SLR features a quilted stitched leather floor… yes, floor! The interior also features Brabus’ sport steering wheel and plenty of carbon fiber goodies.
