Brabus SV12 S Biturbo. When a $100 000 CL is just not enough...



-6.3 Liter V12
-730 hp!
-21 inch wheels

I really like the new CL coupe from Mercedes, but this is insane.

At least, it is pretty subtle.

The problem is that it weighs so much that it practically has its own gravity, that and its still a Mercedes. So it can't plant all that power and handles like a land yacht. Long story short, it isn't any faster that the standard car.

Are those LEDs at the bottom? Yeah, real subtle.

730Hp twin-turbocharged V12 engine and it’s capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 4.0 sec and to 200 km/h (124mph) after just 11.9 sec while its top-speed is electronically limited to 340 km/h (211mph).

Doesn't sound like a regular CL to me ! Get your facts straight Leland !! I still don't know why people who don't know anything about cars post on here !

Its still a Mercedes, even with all the suspension upgrades, they didn't due squat about its mass, mainly the abundance of it. So yeah it may go quicker in straight line, once the tires are no longer overloaded with the all that torque, but try taking a corner with it and see what happens. Just don't BBQ the brakes too often. Now if this was based on a BMW, Nissan FM (although his platform is a bit overweight itself) or Audi platform then these upgrades would be more effective.
