Brabus has built what it touts as the fastest and most powerful coupe in the world. Naming it the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo Coupe, it is actually a modified version of the Mercedes-Benz CL 600.

At the heart of this exclusive automobile is the SV12 Biturbo engine based on the turbocharged Mercedes 600 twelve-cylinder engine and apparently represents the most powerful street-legal V12 engine in the world. The modifications include special exhaust manifolds, two larger turbochargers, a high-efficiency intercooler and a high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts and low back pressure.

Performance figures of the engine include a rated power output of 730 hp at 5100 rpm, and a peak torque of 1,320 Nm at just 2100 rpm. In the car peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm.

Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission. The optionally available BRABUS locking differential optimizes traction. All BRABUS drivetrain elements are operated with ARAL high-performance lubricants.

The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe boasts numbers like 0-100 kph in 4.0 seconds, 200 kph after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 340 kph.

Additional features include a mild body kit, an exhaust system, custom-tailored alcantara/leather interior and a choice of wheel sizes. The largest corresponding tyres are size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and size 295/30 ZR 21 in the rear.

The optional BRABUS suspension lowers the ride height by some 25 mm. The car can be equipped with the BRABUS high-performance brake system with 12-piston aluminium front calipers and six-piston aluminium rear calipers.

The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo coupe can be ordered as a complete car starting at 178,980 Euros or can be built based on an existing current CL 600 model.
