Famous Mercedes tuner, BRABUS has launched another 'monster' on the streets, this time based on the Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series.

The package designed for the BRABUS Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series has been named the T65 RS and as you can imagine, power has been taken to extreme levels, 800 HP (588 kW) and 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft) of peak torque to be exact.

The peak torque however has been electronically limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) as the transmission would probably not be able to transfer power to the wheels in a 'civilised maner', and the BRABUS Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series that weights 1,795 Kg is able to sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h in 3.6 seconds (0 to 200 Km/h in 9.8 sec) and reach a top speed of over 330 Km/h (limited to 320 Km/h - 200 mph).

As far as visual enhancements, both at the exterior and interior, the BRABUS Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series gets the 'usual' quality treatment.

The BRABUS Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series price was not disclosed yet.

It includes the BRABUS high-tech twin turbo system that includes two special exhaust manifolds with integrated turbine housings and high-performance turbochargers. Four generously dimensioned intercoolers are placed beneath the space created by the BRABUS carbon-fiber hood scoop. The special BRABUS stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts was specifically designed for the Black Series power upgrade.

Newly programmed engine electronics with special mapping for injection and ignition coordinate the perfect interaction of all high-performance components and at the same time ensure that the engine meets strict EURO IV emission limits. The high-tech lubricants for the entire powertrain are supplied by technology partner ARAL.

The T65 RS engine delivers 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at 5,500 rpm and an even more impressive peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft), available already at a low 2,100 rpm. Peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).

The car could reach a top speed of more than 330 km/h (206 mph) but for tire safety reasons top speed is limited electronically to 320 km/h (200 mph).

The BRABUS upholstery shop creates a special sporty and luxurious interior to customers’ exact specifications, down to the last detail.

In this true BRABUS one-off car, made to the specifications of a longtime customer, they are upholstered in an exclusive combination of especially soft and breathable black leather and Alcantara. The same materials are found on door panels, headliner and dashboard. Precision-sewn red seams add striking highlights to all interior elements.
