Default 2010 Brabus S-Class SV12R

BRABUS SV12 R is the latest state-of-the-art creation by the premium Mercedes-Benz tuner – BRABUS. The BRABUS SV12 R is a business car (office on wheels) that combines two of the most significant auto qualities in new dimension – Power and Luxury. With its BRABUS SV12 R Biturbo 750 twelve-cylinder engine producing 750 hp (740 bhp) / 552 kW and a peak torque of 1,350 Nm (995 lb-ft), the Mercedes S 600 facelift based BRABUS reaches a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph) electronically limited. The peak torque is electronically limited too – 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).

extraordinary sprint numbers makes the BRABUS SV12 R not just the most powerful but also the fastest luxury sedan in the world. The 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint lasts only 4.0 seconds, and to 200 km/h (124 mph) just 11.9 seconds.

The mighty SV12 R luxury sedan power comes not only from the engine but also from the larger turbochargers, the more efficient intercooling system and the stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with four tailpipes and metal catalysts with low back pressure. The newly programmed engine electronics also ensures the flawless work of the all new components. All this power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission.

This enormous force of the BRABUS SV12 R places the highest demands on the car’s aerodynamics. The aerodynamic-enhancement components for the facelift generation of the Mercedes S-Class were designed from scratch. The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop a striking front apron whose sophisticated shape reduces lift on the front axle. The large centrally located air duct optimizes the cooling of engine and front brakes. Integrated auxiliary headlights and LED daytime running lights further improve active safety. Custom-tailored front aluminum sport fenders replaces their production counterparts. The exclusive appearance is characterized by an air vent made from clear-coated carbon and a horizontal brace that spans the outlet with embossed BRABUS signet and integrated LED lights. For optimizing the side airflow of the vehicle, the BRABUS designers shaped a rocker panels that feature integrated entrance lights for added utility.

The aerodynamic-enhancement concept features more: a BRABUS rear spoiler lip and a new rear apron, a centrally located reflector, custom cutouts for the BRABUS quad sport exhaust system and integrated LED lights which illuminate the ground behind the vehicle.

The enormous performance of the BRABUS SV12 R is kept safely under control with custom-tailored solutions for tires, brakes and suspension. They include BRABUS Monoblock light-alloy wheels with diameters ranging from 17 to 21 inches.

The largest version features size 9Jx21 wheels on the front axle and size 10.5Jx21 in back. Customers can choose from three different designs: Three-piece forged and high-gloss polished BRABUS Monoblock VI wheels with six double spokes, Monoblock E multi-spoke wheels and the especially exclusive Monoblock F PLATINUM EDITION forged wheels with cross-spoke design. All versions are fitted with Pirelli or YOKOHAMA tires in size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and in size 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle.

For all S 350, S 500 and S 350 CDI models with short wheelbase BRABUS also certified Monoblock VI, E, G, Q and S wheels in size 10Jx22 with high-performance tires in size 275/25 ZR 22 in front combined with size 295/25 ZR 22 tires on the rear axle. Thanks to a tire design specifically calibrated for luxury sedans and high-performance coupes the new BRABUS tire/wheel combination offers sporty and agile handling combined with excellent ride comfort.

The large wheels also create the necessary space for installing the BRABUS high-performance brake system with 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 380 x 36-mm (15.0 x 1.42 inches) vented and cross-drilled discs in front, and 355 x 28-mm (14.0 x 1.1 inches) discs and six-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the rear axle.

The finest entertainment and communication technologies on board a luxury sedan capable of reaching 340 km/h (211 mph): BRABUS has developed a business concept for the Mercedes S-Class that combines exclusivity, state-of-the-art technology and meticulous craftsmanship at the highest level of perfection.

At the heart of the system is an ultra-slim 3-GHz notebook computer housed safely in a docking station inside an electrically deployed drawer in the trunk, underneath the rear shelf. The tablet PC notebook can be easily removed for use outside the vehicle.

The entire BRABUS business concept equipment is operated via a second COMAND controller conveniently placed in a special console integrated into the rear compartment. This ensures that the user of the PC system has no problems operating the system if and when he or she moves from the driver’s seat to the power rear seats or vice versa. The console in the rear also houses a color printer.

A 15.2-inch 16:9 TFT screen serves as computer monitor. It is integrated into the supple leather of the headliner and deploys and retracts at the push of a button. The BRABUS computer is connected to the internet via UMTS. Two USB 2.0 ports integrated into the rear compartment allow connecting various peripherals such as a webcam for video conferencing or a digital camera. The printer is housed in a custom-developed console located between the rear seats.

To display the images from digital TV, DVD, Blu-Ray disc or game console the BRABUS interior specialists have developed an interface that transmits the signals to the extendable screen in the roof and to the standard screens in the back of the front headrests. Also available for the S-Class are special BRABUS seat consoles with integrated tables that deploy at the push of a button. The table tops are bordered by elegant aluminum frames and are available in the same wood grains as the factory trim options of the S-Class or in custom BRABUS veneers or even covered with leather. The angle of the table top is infinitely adjustable and the tables offer ample space for perusing documents or for the wireless keyboard of the BRABUS computer system.

The computer’s integrated MP3 player can store more than 5,000 songs. The sound is carried by Sennheiser Noise Gard headphones that filter out unwanted noises for unparalleled listening enjoyment.

Maximum individuality and comfort in the interior is another specialty of the BRABUS interior designers. That includes electric curtains that provide the rear passengers with privacy. But that’s not all: The list of options ranges from scuff plates with illuminated BRABUS logo to ergonomically shaped sport steering wheels to stainless-steel pedals.

Especially exclusive is the newly created BRABUS Yachting precious-wood combination of maple and tropical Wenge wood, which lends the luxury sedan a maritime ambiance. In traditional craftsmanship hundreds of individual pieces are used to recreate every piece of wood trim in the S-Class in the style of a miniature ship veneer. The combination of maple and Wenge woods features traditional open pores but is sealed according to the latest automotive guidelines.

As a stylish and perfectly crafted complement the company upholstery shop created an elegant fully leather interior in a combination of light-beige and dark-brown leather that is especially soft, breathable and extremely durable.

dang, all the focusing on the negative...

yeah i don't like the stripy wood and the 21's with 25 series tires look silly, but other than that (and you can get smaller rims and no doubt a different interior), the car is AMAZING.

way to go brabus!!!!

electronically limited to 211mph, rofl...

The number on this car are insane. The numbers on the Brabus CLS Rocket are beyond this world. 900 lb/ft of torque on that car:eek2

The craftsmanship on these cars are incredible.. There is a vid somewhere on the Brabus factory..
