BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo Coupe with 730hp and 1320Nm!

With the SV12 S Biturbo Coupe, BRABUS presents the world's fastest and most powerful coupe. Its highlights are 730hp/537 kW of power, 1,320Nm of torque and a top speed of 340km/h!

At the heart of this exclusive automobile is the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo engine. It is based on the turbocharged Mercedes-Benz CL 600's twelve-cylinder and represents the most powerful street-legal V12 motor in the world. Installing a special BRABUS crankshaft with longer stroke, combined with a bigger bore and correspondingly resized forged pistons, increases displacement from 5.5 to 6.3L. Further engine modifications also include precision machining the cylinder heads and fitting them with four special camshafts.

In addition, the engine peripherals are also modified extensively. The modifications include special exhaust manifolds, two larger turbochargers, a high-efficiency intercooler and a high performance exhaust system with metal catalysts plus low back pressure. Extensive bench tests determined the new programming for the engine electronics that not only maximizes horsepower but also ensures that the engine meets stringent Euro IV emission limits.

Performance figures of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine speak volumes: A rated power output of 730 hp/537 kW at 5,100 rpm is just as extraordinary as a peak torque of 1,320 Nm at just 2,100 rpm! On the road, peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission. An optionally available BRABUS locking differential optimizes traction. All BRABUS drive train elements are operated with ARAL high-performance lubricants.

The BRABUS S V12 S Biturbo coupe is not just the most powerful; it is also the fastest street-legal of its kind. It rockets from standstill to 100km/h in 4.0 secs, reaches 200km/h after just 11.9seconds and continues to sprint to an electronically limited top speed of 340km/h.

The enormous performance of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe places exceptionally high demands on the aerodynamic-enhancement parts, which thankfully were developed in a wind tunnel. The sophisticated shape of the BRABUS front apron reduces lift on the front axle and improves engine and front brake cooling due to its large air inlet. Integrated fog lamps and high beams lend the car a characteristic appearance and further improve active safety by optimizing illumination of the road.

The BRABUS rocker panels optimize the airflow along the sides and feature integrated entrance lights for safe entering and exiting of the vehicle in the dark. The BRABUS rear apron sports custom-tailored cut-outs for the BRABUS quad-sport exhaust. Three LED lights integrated into the apron are also activated via the keyless fob. An understated rear spoiler rounds out the sophisticated BRABUS aerodynamics concept, and reduces lift on the rearaxle for further improved directional stability at high speeds.

The enormous performance of the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe is kept safely in check at all times, thanks to custom-tailored solutions for tyres, suspension and brakes. Among them are BRABUS Monoblock light-alloy wheels with diameters of 18, 19, 20 or 21 inches. The largest tyre/wheel combination features BRABUS Monoblock VI and E wheels in sizes 9Jx21 in front and 10.5Jx21 on the rear axle. The largest corresponding tyres are size 265/30 ZR21 in front and size 295/30 ZR21 in the rear.

BRABUS recommends Pirelli and YOKOHAMA high-performance tyres. The BRABUS module for the standard ABC suspension is specifically calibrated to these high-performance tyres, and lowers the ride height by some 25 millimeters. For further optimized active safety the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe can be equipped with the BRABUS high-performance brake system. Maximum fade-free stopping power is provided on the front axle by 380 x 36 millimeter discs and 12-piston aluminium fixed calipers. The rear features 355 x 28 millimeter discs and 6-piston aluminum fixed calipers.

BRABUS also fulfills any requests imaginable when it comes to exclusive interior options. The list of products ranges from scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo or an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel to an exclusive customized interior crafted from soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and the finest Alcantara.

The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe can be ordered as a complete car or can be built based on a current CL600 model. The BRABUS model range, from the entry level Premier Line to highest range of high performance vehicles imported from the Brabus factory in Germany and Mercedes-Benz individualization services are available at BRABUS Bangsar KL Centre, BRABUS Penang Centre and BRABUS PJ Centre in Malaysia.
