BRABUS has unveiled its 800 Coupe with 800 hp, 1,420 Nm and 350-km/h Top Speed which is based on the latest Mercedes CL 600. Celebrating the world debut at the 2011 Dubai International Motor Show, the BRABUS 800 Coupe showcases unique performance, exclusive sporty-elegant design and high-class interior.
BRABUS reengineers the 12-cylinder engine of the CL 600 thoroughly in the BRABUS engine-building shop, increasing the displacement from 5.5 to 6.3 liters. As a result, the BRABUS 800 V12 Biturbo engine delivers unparalleled performance figures: the engine produces its maximum rated power output of 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at a low 5,500 rpm. The peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 ft-lb) is available from 2,100 rpm.
BRABUS 800 V12 Biturbo engine makes the 800 Coupe the world’s most powerful and fastest four-seat luxury coupe. The two-door car can sprint from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds and reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) after a mere 10.3 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
For the aerodynamic balance BRABUS equips the CL with an understated rear spoiler on the trunk lid and a rear fascia insert. The insert replaces its production counterpart in the bumper and features a central reflector as well as one custom-tailored cutout on either side to provide the perfect backdrop for the four tailpipes of the BRABUS sport exhaust system.
To make safe use of the car, BRABUS Monoblock 21-inch wheels, available as Monoblock VI, E or F designs is required. BRABUS technology partners Continental, Pirelli and YOKOHAMA supply tried and tested high-performance tires in size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and size 295/25 ZR 21 on the rear axle.
The interior received a high-class upgrade to match the car’s diamond-white metallic paint finish. The BRABUS upholsterers crafted the coupe interior from a combination of white leather and black Alcantara, each with contrasting seams and diamond-pattern topstitching. Carbon-fiber elements in the cockpit add a markedly sporty touch. An ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel is also part of the extraordinary BRABUS interior refinement.
The BRABUS 800 Coupe is available as a complete vehicle or can be built based on any current Mercedes CL 600 model.
