Concurrent wîth the market introduction of the new Mercedes CL-Class, Brabus presents an extensive and exclusive tuning program.
Engine tuning wîth up to 730 bhp, 21-inch light-alloy wheels and sporty yet elegant aerodynamic-enhancement parts are on the available-options list. Also available are a sport suspension, a high-performance brake system and exclusive interior appointments.
The top performance level from Brabus for the CL 600 is the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine. To increase swept volume from standard 5.5 to 6.3 liters the engine block is reworked and fitted wîth a special crankshaft wîth longer stroke, and wîth larger, forged pistons. The inlet and outlet ports of both cylinder heads are machined for optimal gas flow further aided by four special camshafts.
The Brabus engine specialists further equip the motor wîth larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance quad exhaust wîth low-back-pressure metal catalysts. Newly programmed engine electronics ensure perfect interaction of all new components, and contribute not only to maximizing power yield but also to meeting strict current emission limits.
The maximum power output of 730 bhp at 5,100 rpm represents a superlative for the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine as does the peak torque of 873 lb-ft at 2,100 rpm. In the vehicle peak torque is limited electronically to 810 lb-ft.
These extraordinary performance figures make the Brabus SV12 S coupe not just one of the most powerful but also one of the fastest GT's in the world. 0 - 60 bph in 3.9 seconds, 124 mph after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph speak volumes.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
An optional Brabus rear locking differential optimizes traction.
To add more sporty emphasis to the elegant lines of the new C 216-series Mercedes coupe the Brabus designers have developed an aerodynamic-enhancement kit, manufactured from high-quality PÚR-R-RIM in OEM quality.
The Brabus front bumper was shaped in the wind tunnel. Its sophisticated shape reduces lift on the front axle. The large central air dam optimizes cooling of engine and front brakes. Integrated fog lamps and high beams give the car a more charismatic appearance and improve active safety through better illumination of the roadway.
The Brabus rocker panels were designed to optimize airflow along the vehicle's sides. As a useful additional feature these panels come wîth integrated entrance lights.
The bolt-on rear fascia is designed to perfectly integrate the fully stainless-steel Brabus quad sports exhaust into the rear appearance. The rear fascia also features three LED lights recessed in the underside of the fascia. They are activated when the trunk lid is opened and facilitate loading and unloading the trunk in the dark. An understated rear spoiler rounds out the sophisticated Brabus aerodynamics concept.
Just as important for a customized appearance and for sporty handling are custom-tailored wheels. The new CL can be fitted wîth Brabus Monoblock light-alloy wheels in various width and design wîth 18-, 19-, 20- and 21-inch diameters. The largest tire/wheel combination for the C 216 series are Brabus Monoblock VI and E wheels in sizes 9Jx21 in front and 10.5Jx21 on the rear axle. For optimal tires Brabus selected Pirelli and Yokohama high-performance tires in sizes 255/30 ZR21 in front and 285/30 ZR21 in the rear.
Specifically matched to this tire/wheel combination is the Brabus lowering module for the standard ABC suspension. It lowers the ride height of the two-door by about an inch.
To keep the exceptional performance safely in check at all times the Mercedes can be fitted wîth a Brabus high-performance brake system. The top-of-the-line version features 12-piston fixed aluminum calipers and 380 x 36-millimeter vented and cross-drilled discs on the front axle. The rear axle decelerates wîth 355 x 28-millimeter discs and six-piston fixed aluminum calipers.
The interior of the new Mercedes coupe offers numerous opportunities for exclusive Brabus treatments. The list of products ranges from door sills wîth Brabus logo to ergonomically shaped sport §teering wheels to an exclusive Brabus fully leather interior crafted from especially soft yet durable Brabus Mastik leather and the finest Alcantara.Source - Brabus
