The German aftermarket developer Brabus has displayed its modification job on a Mercedes-Benz SLS at the Geneva Motor Show.

Dubbed the Brabus 700 Biturbo, the vehicle delivers 700hp at 6,600 rpm and 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) available from 4,300 rpm. The 6.2-liter V8 engine doesn't have its "natural aspiration" status anymore. Instead it is equipped with Brabus' B63 biturbo system, which uses a left-turning charger for the left side of the powerplant.

The unit also features a water-to-air intercooler and upgraded internals. To enable the vehicle to handle this much power, it has a custom suspension that it developed together with Bilstein. The car has also been given 20-inch lightweight alloy rims.

The car is able to accelerate from a standstill to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and on to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 10.2 seconds. It has a top speed of 213 mph (340 km/h). The supercar has been given a Widestar widebody kit that includes multiple carbon fiber components. These are finished in either body or contrasting color or they can be given a clear coat.
