Even if the German automaker has just launched the new Mercedes SLS AMG super car, it would be hard to keep the boys at Brabus from getting their hands on one to swap out a few parts and begin to customize the new car from day one. Now this is merely a preview of what the Mercedes Benz tuners will be bringing to the Essen Motor Show next week.

Despite the SLS’s rather stock appearance it will be wearing a rather stylish new set of multi spoke mesh wheels, but the best part of what Brabus has done comes under the car in the form of a free flowing high performance sport tuned exhaust that raises the hand built 6.2 Liter V8’s output from a standard 571 HP all the way up to an even 700 HP. Brabus didn’t want to spoil the surprise for those going to the tuning show in Essen so you will just have to stay tuned, because we will get back to you with more details as soon as we get them!

The German tuning firm Brabus recently got together with the electric car builders at Tesla to produce a very special zero emissions Smart Fortwo. The Brabus Ultimate High Voltage is a high performance electric vehicle based on the popular city car from Mercedes Benz . The tuning house Brabus has a long history taking high end luxury cars to new heights with bold exterior treatments as well as extremely plush interiors, that is why Tesla Motors was included in order to give the all electric Smart Fortwo an extra jolt of adrenaline.

Brabus Ultimate High Voltage

The Ultimate High Voltage is powered by a very special electric motor that was developed with the help of the American electric sports car maker that produces a maximum output of 82 HP and a peak of 207 lb-ft of torque which helps the 1,600 pound Smart sprint from 0 to 38.5 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and hit 60 MPH from a standstill in under 9.8 seconds.

The exterior of the Brabus Ultimate High Voltage is painted in a very unique shade of cream called matte Tridionzelle and features a few distinct touches like LED driving lights integrated into the front bumper as well as meaty Widestar fender flares and side skirts and a set of 18 inch split five spoke rims wearing transparent Plexiglas covers to get as much milage as possible from the electric Smart car.

Brabus Ultimate R

The german tuning firm Brabus unveiled the Ultimate R, a tuning package based on the Smart Fortwo at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week. With the help of a few Brabus modifications, the engine now delivers 112 HP and 111 lb-ft of torque and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 9.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 106 MPH. The Ultimate R sets itself apart from lesser Smart cars with a set of bold fender flares, unique rims as well as some additional exterior accessories.

The package offers new car shoppers the choice of over thousands of exterior color choices as well as taillor made leather interiors and convertible soft top.

With a limited production run of only 10 units, the new Brabus E V12 Black Baron is indeed a car for the powerful. In short, the black Benz can simply be described by the numbers: 800 HP, 1047 lb-ft of torque, 217 MPH top speed and a price of $875,000. It is no wonder why they only made 10, that much Mercedes only belongs in the hands of a few.

Brabus E V12 Black Baron

The Brabus E V12 Black Baron is based on the new 2010 E-Class and in true Brabus fashion, a 6.3 Liter biturbo V12 has been shoehorned into place where the standard 5.5 Liter 8 cylinder mill would have sat. As part of the Brabus power package, the engine includes a ram air induction system, a quad tipped exhaust and a reprogrammed engine computer to get the most from the new power plant.

On the outside the German tuner has added a redesined front bumper, bolder front fenders, aggressive side sills and an aerodynamic inspired set of rear wheel covers. There is a more pronounced spoiler mounted on top of the trunk and a carbon fiber diffuser underneath.

Aside from the body modifications, the E V12’s performance has also been improved considerably: the Brabus E V12 rockets from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds, hit 125 MPH in about 10 seconds while on its way to a top speed of 217 MPH, or even 230 MPH if you can persuade them to remove the electronic limiter.

Brabus is preparing to smash a new world record at the Frankfurt Motor Show with the unveiling of the SV12 R - the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury sedan. Based on the latest Mercedes S 600 facelift, the SV12 R develops 750 hp and can hit a top speed of 211 mph.

In order to obtain the power increase, Brabus added larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with four tailpipes and metal catalysts with low back pressure. As a result the engine delivers 750 hp at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 995 lb-ft at 2,100 rpm. The SV12 R sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, can hit the 124 mph barrier after just 11.9 seconds and is electronically limited to a top speed of 211 mph.

Next to this immense power upgrade, the SV12 R also adds custom-tailored front aluminum sport fenders that replace their production counterparts, an air vent made from clear-coated carbon and a horizontal brace that spans the outlet with embossed BRABUS signet and integrated LED lights, BRABUS rocker panels that feature integrated entrance lights and light-alloy wheels with diameters ranging from 17 to 21 inches.

When you purchase a Mercedes Benz S65 AMG you get a luxury limousine filled with the latest and greatest creature comforts on the inside and a 612 HP turbocharged V12 under the hood. However in the world of high end tuning as in most car culture circles, too much is never enough, so if you are not happy with what you got from the factory you can take your AMG built Mercedes Benz S Class to Brabus and have them upgrade your engine’s maximum output to 730 HP. That is almost 100 HP more than a Ferrari Enzo and only 270 HP less than the Bugatti Veyron .

Aside from the insane amount of power, this S65 AMG has been murdered out by Brabus with the black on black color scheme. We are esecialy partial to the Matte finish. The S Class is upgraded with a set of wide body front fenders and a set of their custom wheels that continue the monochromatic paint job. We are still waiting to see a few more images of the wild red interior of this Brabus SV12 S. If it is anything like the exterior, we can be certain that it is a top notch installation.
