The Essen Motorshow is about to begin this weekend, so it’s no wonder that our pages are full of tuning projects. But when we get to talk about cars such as the Mercedes SLS-AMG , things get even more exciting! German tuner, Brabus, will be bringing an SLS AMG that will be fitted with a tuning kit they compare to a custom-tailored designer suit. This kit a complete makeover for the exterior and a custom Brabus interior, as well as some performance enhancements.

The aerodynamic package, all made of carbon fiber includes a front spoiler, a rear spoiler, and a rear diffuser. It goes on with more sculpted rocker panels, Brabus air outlets for the front fenders, and a set of forged wheels in sizes 9.5Jx20 in front and 11Jx21 on the rear axle. The car’s ride has also been lowered by 30 millimeters, and the suspension is height-adjustable. At the rear there is a new high-performance exhaust system with four slanted exhaust tips with diameters of 84 millimeters manufactured from extremely lightweight titanium. The new exhaust system increases the power output by 10 hp.

The interior gets carbon-fiber inlays in any desired color, matte anodized aluminum pedals, and an ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel. The speedometer is actually a source of some interesting news as well; it comes with a 250 mph scale. Apparently, Brabus is giving us a hint at this sports car’s future performance.

Meet the world most powerful luxury sedan: the new Brabus SV12 R Biturbo 800 based on the Mercedes S600 . If you remember, Brabus has another SV12 R packages , but that one "only" develops 750 HP. Instead, the new SV12 R Biturbo 800 goes to an impressive 800 HP.

In order to obtain this impressive output, the tuner increased the V12 engine’s capacity from 5,5 to 6,3 liters, added high-performance camshafts and flow-optimized cylinder heads, new air intake and a new Biturbo system with two special high-performance manifolds with integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers. And of course lets not forget the new stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with sport catalysts and four exhaust tips. The result is an impressive 800 HP and 1,420 Nm of torque; a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.

The exterior package includes: larger central air inlet, front spoiler lip, custom-tailored aluminum front fenders, an integrated air vent made from clear-coated carbon fiber and a horizontal brace, a new rear spoiler lip, centrally located reflector and custom cutouts. The interior gets leather in any color you desire, Alcantara and exclusive wood trim sets and of course all the latest technologies.

Brabus is famous for tuning German models, and it usually goes for sportiness and luxury. But this time the German tuner went in a totally new and unexpected direction. The German tuner, in close cooperation to Hyundai developed the special edition i20 Sport.

The exterior package includes: body-colored front skirt and wheelarch flares to the exterior, while a glossy radiator grille mesh insert, black bezel headlights and daytime running lights are also introduced. The car’s sporty appearance is completed with the inclusion of a glossy B-pillar, smoked windows, dark red tinted rear lights and 17-inch Brabus alloy wheels with Yokohama tires.

On the interior the tuner added Orange leather Recaro seats, a black leather gearshift cover with orange-colored seams, a chrome gear shift knob, a leather-wrapped center console, leather-covered door panels, and a 7-inch touch screen navigation all bring added verve to the driving experience.

Ever wonder what’s hiding underneath the camouflage of what supposedly was the next-generation CLS 63 AMG ? Well, the cat is finally out of the bag.

In these renderings that we’ve obtained, we finally get a close-up look at the new CLS to come out of the wood-work and by goodness, this tuned up luxury car is poised to give the Aston Martin Rapide , the Porsche Panamera Turbo , and the yet-to-be-released Audi S7 a serious run for their money.

In addition to the svelte and aggressive styling that makes it look modern, fresh, and ultimately sexy, the next-gen CLS AMG is expected to come with a 6.3-liter V8 engine that produces somewhere around 525 horsepower and is mated to a Speedshift MCT 7-speed gearbox. And true to its tuning roots, Brabus even gave this CLS quite an upgrade, improving its suspension, braking, and aerodynamic features from the standard CLS models, which, incidentally, was unveiled just a few weeks ago.

Needless to say, we’re dying to see this luxury beast out on the streets someday. When that will be is still anyone’s guess, but if it looks as good as these renderings, then this car better hit dealerships sometime soon.

Brabus has gone to the extremes. First they tuned Mercedes’ most powerful sports car: the SLS AMG , and now they have turned to one of the most luxurious models in the line-up: the SL600 . The new Brabus "iBusiness" SV12 R model is not only about high performance, but also about innovative multimedia technology.

We won’t talk too much about the engine, as it is one that you should be familiar with by now: an SV12 R Biturbo 750 12-cylinder engine with an output of 750 hp. This provides the luxury sedan with a top speed of 211 mph.

What we will focus on is the car’s technology. Apple seems to have given away the cow as this luxury sedan is completely outfitted with Apple components. The brains of the operation is a 15.2-inch TFT display with 16:9 aspect ratio and internet connection via UMTS and HSDPA. To that, an ultra-small Mac minicomputer is added under the rear shelf. This minicomputer is hidden by an electronic door that looks like the computer itself. Controlling these computers is made easy with the use of twoiPads located in the front passenger seat as well as in the backseat. These iPads not only control the computers, put can also navigate through the entire multimedia center including the radio, navigation system, and telephone. And, of course, there is Alcantara and leather all over the interior.

Check out all of the exact specifications in the press release after the jump.

The Mercedes SLS AMG has been on everyone’s lips at some point or another this year and it would be absolutely shocking if the German tuner, Brabus, hadn’t jumped at the opportunity to revamp the sports car to their own liking. Don’t get ahead of yourselves, though, this kit only includes cosmetic changes for right now.

The kit includes 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 upgrades to the interior.

The new exhaust system may provide a little help in the horsepower department while the new aerodynamic package may assist as well. The aerodynamic kit includes a new front spoiler, new air outlets for the front fenders, a new rear spoiler, all made in carbon fiber and painted to match or contrast with the car’s exterior color. The package is finished by a set of wheels measuring 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the rear.

Along with the aerodynamic and technical changes being made to the Mercedes , Brabus is also offering a height-adjustable Brabus smooth-ride suspension that can lower the car’s ride by up to 40mm. In the future, Brabus will also be offering a Front Lift system that will raise the nose of the car by 50mm.

We can’t imagine that Brabus would just tune the Mercedes SLS AMG cosmetically without as much as glancing at the engine, so we were glad to hear that they are planning to improve on the car’s 6.3L V8 engine. Of course, there are no official details on that yet so we’ll just have to patient and see what else they come up with.

Remember the Brabus Vanish ? It was an 800 HP one-off Mercedes SL 65 AMG Black Series especially created for a Dubai customer. Well, Brabus did it again, but this time it juiced up the power even more. Their newest model is called the Stealth and it is based off the same Mercedes model as the Vanish. And hey, guess where the lucky customer is from? Yes, it was created for a customer in Dubai.

In its standard version the SL65 AMG Black Series develops a total of 670 HP, but this time Brabus took it to an impressive 820 HP. This jumps the horsepower an extra 20HP from the previous model they built called the Vanish. Apparently, the Stealth was built to go so fast that they had to upgrade the name as well, but don’t let it fool you; the cops can still pick up the uncontrollably fast vehicle on their radars.

The ironic part of this whole story is that both of the customers from Dubai probably enlisted the help of Brabus Brabus to obtain a ridiculously fast vehicle that would make them stand out in their unique renditions of the Mercedes’. Turns out, both adrenaline-pumping vehicles call the same neighborhood home. The two Dubai men actually live in the same neighborhood! Talk about the ultimate backfire!

Yes, we love it when a car that goes fast gets tuned up to go even faster. When a new car that has the horsepower and weight capability to zoom away into the distance comes out, we sit back and wait for a tuning company to swipe it up and turbocharge it. Today, our wait is over. Brabus has unveiled the T65 RS tuning package based on the SL65 AMG Black Series . The SL65 AMG Black Series is an impressive car in its standard version - it develops a total of 650 HP - but Brabus made it even more impressive. With the addition of a high-tech twin turbo system that includes two special exhaust manifolds with integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers, the tuner obtained an impressive 800 HP and 1,420 Nm available already at a low 2,100 rpm. The result is a sprint from 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds and a top speed limited to 200 mph.

Next to the engine upgrades, the T65 RS can also get a choice special paint jobs in either the original matte black or in any customization color specified to customers‘ individual desires. The Mercedes SL65 AMG by Brabus will also come with an exclusive combination of especially soft and breathable black leather and Alcantara.

This new tuning package doesn’t come as a surprise only because Brabus was able to tune up the Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series they called the "Brabus Vanish" for an Arab gentleman about a month ago. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the popularity of a suped up SL65 AMG Black Series would extend so far that Brabus Brabus would have no choice, but to offer it as a specific package. We definitely aren’t complaining. This is one hot and speedy package.

When it comes to Arabs and their cars, the first thing that comes to our minds is "extreme"; extreme tuning, weird colors, and as much HP as possible. This is the case with this Brabus Brabus Vanish - a one of a kind supercar created especially for an Arab by none other than the tuning superstars at AMG. This kind of Arab/AMG combination could only result in a tremendously fast and hot car. Think along the lines of the Matte Black Mercedes SL65 AMG, but with a lot more power.

The name Vanish was given by the customer himself probably because that is what he intended to do once he put the pedal to the metal on this beast. The project started with a Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. This Mercedes, in its standard version, already produces a total of 670 hp, but Brabus took it to an impressive 800 hp. This was possible thanks to the addition of larger turbos, a new gearbox, larger brake pads, and a huge exhaust system.

The interior gets red stitching and Brabus logos. The bonnet has also been replaced to cater to bigger turbos.

There are no details on how the car’s performances improved, but we can only imagine that with 800hp and a name like Vanish that we will only see the spitting of gravel and dust once this car takes off!

Who said Mercedes’ BlueEFFICIENCY models can’t get even more powerful and in the same time keeping their initial exemplary low emissions. Brabus has just unveiled the ECO PowerXtra CGI Performance Kits that adds an extra 26 hp and 40 Nm to any model you might own.

For example, after the kit is installed on a E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY, the output is raised with an additional 18 hp, while top speed goes up to 166 mph. Next to the engine kit, Brabus is also offering a new stainless-steel sport exhaust systems.
