Reason enough for the Brabus engineers to develop the Brabus SV 12 bi-Turbo increased-displacement engine. Installation of a custom-designed crankshaft milled from one piece, larger diameter pistons and precision-balanced piston rods increase displacement from standard 5.5 to 6.3 liters. The Turbocharged V12 is also fitted with a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with less flow resistance and metal catalysts. Custom-programmed engine electronics ensure the flawless interaction of all components.
Form and function at the highest level of perfection: The Brabus aerodynamic-enhancement parts, which are available for all current SL models, create a sporty yet elegant appearance and offer aerodynamic advantages as well. At high speeds they help reduce lift on the front axle thus further improving directional stability. The Brabus side sills create an especially aerodynamically efficient transition between the wheel houses and further offer an additional useful and exciting feature: Pushing a button on the keyless-entry remote or pulling on the door handle activates four LED lights on each side which illuminate the ground on either side of the vehicle, and help prevent an unfortunate step into a hole or puddle hidden in the dark. The Brabus designer suit for the new SL is rounded out by the Brabus rear apron with integrated diffuser. With its perfect fit this aerodynamic-enhancement part is also designed to simply replace the production apron.
Unadulterated luxury and individuality in the interior are yet another Brabus specialty. The list of available exclusive interior options includes sill plates made from genuine carbon with illuminated Brabus logo, ergonomically shaped safety steering wheels with airbag, steering-wheel shifter and heated rim, a speedometer with 360-km/h scale, and an interior trim kit made from genuine carbon.
