Brabus Mercedes SLS AMG is Fast, Black and Expensive


Not to be outdone by Hamann and their SLS AMG tuning kit, famed Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has unleashed their rendition and we're picking our favorite: Brabus. And while there isn't any sort of real performance tuning being done (just yet), we're still favoring the mild aesthetic upgrades over Hamann's version. Or maybe we just find the sleek black more fitting to the SLS AMG's sexy lines.

And as we all know, Brabus does some serious testing on their products prior to releasing them out on the market. Their body kit for the SLS AMG is no different, getting thorough runs through the wind tunnel prior to getting the stamp of approval. And with a car as high-profile as Mercedes-Benz's SLS AMG, we'd expect actual aerodynamic improvements from Brabus. So up front is a carbon fiber front spoiler, new front fenders, covers for the upper air inlets and a subtle rear spoiler. The fenders feature illuminated letters that is pretty sleek.

For wheels, we're actually digging the Monoblock F Platinum Edition mesh-design wheels they put on their demo car. Brabus states that they're available in 20- or 21-inch variety. The demo car features a staggered 20/21 front/rear setup. Brabus is also offering suspension upgrades to either lower the vehicle 40 mm or raise it by 50 mm.

And for those that are looking for some performance, Brabus did release a titanium sport exhaust system for the SLS AMG. There's no horsepower figures, but we're guessing it's significantly lighter than the factory unit with Brabus' weighing in at a scant 26 lbs.

It looks good! I'm sure they can massage that engine and get some more speed out of that car.
