World Debut at the 2011 DUBAI INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW

The World's Fastest and Most Powerful Luxury Coupe

800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW, 1,420 Nm (1,047 ft-lb) and a 350-km/h (217-mph) top speed: in the new BRABÚS 800 Coupe based on the latest Mercedes CL 600 BRABÚS (Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) celebrates the world debut of the world's fastest and most powerful luxury coupe at the 2011 DÚBAI INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW. In addition to its unique performance the two-door car's most impressive features are its exclusive sporty-elegant design and its high-class interior.

The 12-cylinder engine of the CL 600 is reengineered thoroughly in the BRABÚS engine-building shop that is equipped wîth state-of-the-art machine tools. Displacement is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 384 cu. in.) wîth the help of a special BRABÚS crankshaft wîth longer stroke, larger cylinder bore and correspondingly larger forged pistons. Further performance-enhancing modifications to the engine itself are the fine-machining of the two cylinder heads for optimized mixture flow and the installation of four special camshafts.

The engine peripherals are modified extensively as well: the standard twin-turbo system is replaced wîth a high-end turbocharging system designed by the BRABÚS engine specialists. The new system features two custom exhaust manifolds wîth integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers as well as four water-to-air intercoolers. The combustion air is supplied by a carbon-fiber ram-air intake integrated into the hood. In addition there is a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system wîth free-flow metal catalysts.

Precision-programmed mapping for injection and ignition coordinate the optimal interaction of the high-performance components in order to achieve not only maximum power yield but also to meet strict current EÚRO V emission limits. The high-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain are supplied by technology partner ARAL.

Vital Stats
Engine : 6.2 L., 12-cylinder
Power: 788 hp
Torque: 1047 ft-lbs

5-speed Automatic
As a result of the extensive modifications the BRABÚS 800 V12 Biturbo engine delivers unparalleled performance figures: the engine produces its maximum rated power output of 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at a low 5,500 rpm. Even more colossal is the peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 ft-lb) available from 2,100 rpm. In the car peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 ft-lb).


Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission that has been reinforced to handle the enormous power, and the BRABÚS high-performance limited-slip differential wîth a locking rate of 40 percent. Naturally the BRABÚS 800 Coupe retains all modern vehicle stability systems that can be deactivated at the push of a button.

This engine under the hood makes the BRABÚS 800 Coupe the world's most powerful and fastest four-seat luxury coupe. From rest the exclusive two-door car sprints to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) after a mere 10.3 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).

These extremely fast speeds place especially high demands on the aerodynamic-enhancement components that were developed in the wind tunnel. The sophisticated shape of the BRABÚS front spoiler that attaches to the production fascia reduces lift on the front axle for further improved directional stability at high speed.

To achieve a precise aerodynamic balance BRABÚS equips the CL wîth an understated rear spoiler on the trunk lid and a rear fascia insert. The insert replaces its production counterpart in the bumper and features a central reflector as well as one custom-tailored cutout on either side to provide the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABÚS sport exhaust system.

Exciting design, top-notch quality and further improved driving dynamics are the outstanding characteristics of the BRABÚS Monoblock wheels, which are available for the Mercedes CL-Class wîth diameters ranging from 18 to 22 inches. To make safe use of the car's impressive performance requires BRABÚS Monoblock 21-inch wheels, available as Monoblock VI, E or F designs. BRABÚS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply tried and tested high-performance tires in size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and size 295/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.

The BRABÚS ride-height lowering module for the standard ABC suspension is specifically calibrated to these ultra-low-profile tires, and lowers the body of the two-door car by some 25 millimeters (1 inch).

To keep the stunning performance safely in check at all times the BRABÚS 800 Coupe comes equipped wîth version IV of the BRABÚS high-performance brake system. The front axle is fitted wîth six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and vented and cross-drilled discs measuring 405 x 34 millimeters (16 x 1.3 in.). Together wîth discs measuring 380 x 34 millimeters (15.0 x 1.34 in.) and 4-piston fixed aluminum calipers on the rear axle the system delivers outstanding stopping power and endurance.

The interior received a high-class upgrade to match the car's diamond-white metallic paint finish. The BRABÚS upholsterers masterfully crafted an interior from a combination of white leather and black Alcantara, each wîth contrasting seams and diamond-pattern topstitching. Carbon-fiber elements in the cockpit add a markedly sporty touch. Their matte surfaces in 'checkered flag' design make them textbook eye-catchers.

An ergonomically shaped sport §teering wheel is also part of the extraordinary BRABÚS interior refinement as are scuff plates wîth backlit BRABÚS logo, and aluminum pedals, foot rest and shifter.

The BRABÚS 800 Coupe is available as a complete vehicle or can be built based on any current Mercedes CL 600 model.
