Brabus Mercedes CL800 Coupe Delivers All the Horsepower its Name Suggests

Brabus has unveiled arguably their best project yet, a Mercedes-Benz CL Coupe packing 800-hp thanks to a stroked 6.3L V12 twin-turbo. Based on the CL 600, the tuning geniuses at Brabus modified the factory 5.5L with a custom crankshaft, larger cylinder bore and new forged pistons.

But the engine modifications didn't stop there. With the newly rebuilt shortblock ready to go, Brabus turned their attention to the top-end of the motor, installing four custom camshafts, new machining for the cylinder heads and then bolted on their twin-turbo system complete with new exhaust manifolds, and four water-to-air intercoolers. Bolt-ons include a carbon fiber ram air intake and stainless steel exhaust with free-flow metal cats.

As if the 800-hp wasn't impressive enough, the CL 800 Coupe is capable of pushing out over 1,047 lb-ft of torque, but has been electronically limited to 811 lb-ft. To withstand all the extra power, Brabus beefed up the five-speed automatic transmission while also adding a limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40-percent.

0-62 mph comes in at a scant 3.9 seconds while it hits 124-mph in just 10.3 seconds. Top speed has been limited to 217-mph, which is more than enough.

Obviously any project by Brabus includes exterior and interior modifications. A full styling package was added to accent the Brabus Monoblock wheels that are available in 18- to 22-inch sizes. Their lowering module was also installed, lowering the CL almost a full inch. A big brake upgrade round off all the performance modifications.

The interior sports a black and white theme with Brabus logos embroidered and found throughout the decor. No pricing was announced on the project, but we're assuming it won't be cheap.
