2010 Brabus SLS AMG

Carbon Fiber, Handling and Ultra Lightweight!

BRABÚS Refines the Mercedes SLS AMG

Carbon fiber, handling and ultra lightweight! That's the guiding principle of BRABÚS (
Brabus-Allee, D-46240 Bottrop, phone + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777-0, fax + 49 / (0) 2041 / 777 111, Internet www.brabus.com) for refining the Mercedes SLS AMG. The exclusive sport program comprises aerodynamic-enhancement components made from carbon fiber, ultra-lightweight forged wheels, an electronically adjustable smooth-ride suspension (Ride Control) suspension, a titanium exhaust system with bypass gate, and BRABÚS leather.

Extremely light yet enormously strong carbon fiber identical to the one used in Formula 1 racing was chosen as the material for the BRABÚS aerodynamic-enhancement components. The components were developed in the wind tunnel. They give the gullwing car an even more striking appearance while optimizing its aerodynamic properties. All components are available either made from clear-coated carbon fiber for a true racing flair or can be painted to match or contrast with the car's exterior color.

2010 Brabus SLS AMGThe front fascia of the coupe receives a visual upgrade with the BRABÚS front spoiler. But that's not all: The spoiler further reduces lift on the front axle at high speeds which results in even better directional stability. The two BRABÚS covers for the upper air inlets in the bumper lend the SLS an even more striking face while optimizing the cooling air supply.

BRABÚS also lends the sides of the SLS a sharper profile. The new air outlets for the front fenders feature a modern design with integrated blue-illuminated BRABÚS lettering. The illumination is activated via the keyless-entry remote or by pulling on a door handle.

BRABÚS also adds some more visual pizzazz to the rear appearance of the SLS with the BRABÚS rear spoiler and the BRABÚS rear fascia element that features custom-tailored cutouts for the four exhaust tips of the BRABÚS sport exhaust system.


Forged wheels that were custom-developed for the SLS are also elementary for the electrifying BRABÚS look. By choosing a staggered tire/wheel combination with diameters of 20 inches in front and 21 inches on the rear axle BRABÚS further emphasizes the sporty character of the two-door car. The ultra-light BRABÚS Monoblock F PLATINÚM EDITION cross-spoke wheels are up to twelve percent lighter than the stock wheels of the SLS and are mounted in size 9.5Jx20 in front and in size 11Jx21 on the rear axle. The extremely wide high-performance tires in sizes 275/30 ZR 20 and 295/25 ZR 21 are supplied by BRABÚS technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA.

Another custom development is the height-adjustable BRABÚS smooth-ride suspension (Ride Control). It can lower the ride height of the sports car by up to 40 millimeters (1.6 inches). At the push of a button the driver can choose between damper settings that offer a more comfortable or sportier ride compared to the production suspension. To complement this suspension BRABÚS will soon offer the BRABÚS Front Lift system. It raises the front of the car by some 50 millimeters (2 inches) at the push of a button to safely navigate steep parking ramps or other obstacles.

7-speed Semi-Automatic
While engine tuning for the 6.3-liter V8 is still in the final development phase there already is an extremely lightweight BRABÚS titanium sport exhaust system with four slanted exhaust tips. The tips have a diameter of 84 millimeters (3.3 inches). This exhaust system weighs 12 kilograms (26 lbs.) or 40 percent less than the production exhaust and adds an extra ten horsepower to the engine's output. A special feature of this exhaust system is a pneumatically controlled bypass gate that is activated from the cockpit. The normal mode represents a 'coming home' sound level that is quieter than the production exhaust. It appeals especially to the neighbors when the SLS returns home late at night. With open bypass gate the eight-cylinder engine sounds even sportier than with the stock exhaust system.


For the cockpit of the two-seater the BRABÚS interior designers have developed exclusive accessories and masterfully crafted custom interiors. The speedometer with 400-km/h scale (250 mph) already hints at the car's future performance with BRABÚS engine tuning. An ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel is also part of the BRABÚS customization program as are stainless-steel scuff plates with illuminated BRABÚS logo and matte-anodized pedals.

2010 Brabus SLS AMGThe BRABÚS upholstery shop creates fully custom interiors for the SLS from top-quality materials. Customers can choose from different types of leather and Alcantara in any desired color and design to suit their individual tastes.

BRABÚS can also fulfill individual requests for the trim on dashboard, center console and door panels. BRABÚS manufactures carbon-fiber and wood trim sets in any color and with any desired surface finish.
