Showcase cover image for BRABUS SL

General Information

SL55 K8
Obsidian Black
From what I understand there were only around 6 made for UK!!!
I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and when you see the pictures that I have taken you will see why!!
My BRABUS SL has had many modification by BRABUS including the removal of the speed limiter! the top speed it projected to be over 200MPH, it has 550BHP, 780Nm of Torque, BRABUS Reprogrammed ABC Sport for a lower riding height and many more changes have been made including the interior such as the BRABUS re leathered interior and more!!
As you can tell I am very passionate about this car and I also other Mercedes models,
I also have a 1991 500SL (R230) which I have had for 6 years which is still a great car to drive, it on has 60,000 miles on it, when I bought it it had 30,000 miles on it, it's so smooth compared to the BRABUS, the BRABUS has a very potent (and addictive) power delivery, i would actualy say agressive but smooth at the same time. The problem is that I often have people in othe fast cars trying to test me such as Audi R8, Porsche 997 Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S, 996 Carrera TURBO and of course I leave them looking at my exhaust pipes (if you know what I mean)
