Equipped with the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo twelve-cylinder twin-turbo engine that delivers 730 bhp, the SL 600 turns into the world's most powerful roadster. 0 - 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and 124 mph after just 10.9 seconds speak to its prowess as does its top speed electronically limited to 217 mph.
More power by increasing displacement is one of the core philosophies behind the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine. The displacement of the twelve-cylinder three-valve engine is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters with the help of a billet steel crankshaft, larger cylinder bore, special pistons and piston rods.
Rated power output jumps from standard 517 bhp at 5,000 rpm to 730 bhp at just 5,100 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 613 lb-ft to 974 lb-ft, available from 2,100 rpm. Custom engine mapping ensures that peak torque in the car is limited electronically to 812 lb-ft.
