In addition to the powertrain and aerodynamic enhancements, Brabus also modified the suspension settings, wheels and tires, and the interior. The list of aero mods includes a new front spoiler, custom fender panels and a new rear apron with a bootlid spoiler.
The new 6.1L engine developers a peak output of 445hp (327kW) and 635Nm – up from 360hp (268kW) and 510Nm in the stock model. When combined with Mercedes’ seven speed automatic gearbox and Brabus’ own limited-slip differential the modded SLK will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 305km/h.
Stopping power comes from six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and 355 mm vented and slotted discs in front and 300 mm discs with four-piston aluminum fixed calipers in the rear. These reside within optional 19in forged alloy wheels and sit on a suspension system lowered up to 30mm.
