Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster
It’s not an easy task to improve the sharp car like this one. But someone is so skillful and courageous without any boundaries of imagination. And Brabus is one of them. The company has been working on German cars for many decades and it has different philosophy than other tuners. It’s based on performance and sporting beauty.

Brabus has prepared styling and performance kit for this sprinter to boost its attractiveness.

So let’s start from outside, where we can’t see many changes, but important ones. There’s a new carbon spoiler under the decently modified front bumper. The spoiler exactly fits with simple lines of the bumper and its extreme rigidity and low weight guarantees its long life. The spoiler was also tested in a wind tunnel to achieve perfect air-flow without any difficulties. Hood inlets have carbon grills instead of stock aluminum ones.

Openings are covered by a traditional and everlasting dark perforated sheet.

We can find same attributes in case of massive rear diffuser also made of ultra light and tough carbon material. This part also takes care of air-flow and perfect stability of the car.

Brabus isn’t only about styling, but particularly about performance engine tuning. And today’s SLR isn’t an exception. The stock SLR‘s engine has obtained a new, better and especially louder exhaust system, new camshafts and cooling. Optionally they can install a special sporting clutch-type limited-slip differential improving traction of the super cars. These improvements raise the engine’s power to 650 hp (478 kW).

Brabus is well known for its quality and great-looking rims. This one wears 20“ 6-spoke Monoblock VI rims with double spokes in size 9.5Jx20 in front and size 11.5Jx20 on the rear axle. You can choose Pirelli or Yokohama tires in size 255/30 ZR 20 in front and 305/25 ZR 20 at the back.

Brabus didn’t forget about the interior so it’s full of the finest materials as red leather or dark Alcantara.

There are also carbon parts as a cover of central console, door handles etc. The SLR’s interior involves a very interesting checked upholstery of the floor and newly designed sporting steering-wheel.
