First there was the BRABUS VANISH – a finely tuned 800 horsepower monster born of the Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series created by German Mercedes super tuner BRABUS. Never one to rest on their laurels, BRABUS went back to work, creating a second model based on the SL65 AMG Black Series they’re calling the BRABUS Stealth. This time, power has been bumped from the standard SL65 AMG Black’s 670 PS (493 kW / 661 bhp) up to an even more incredible 820 PS (603 kW / 809 bhp) and 1420 Nm (1047 lb-ft) of torque – this compared to Vanish’s 800 PS (588 kW / 789 bhp). 0-62 mph times are likely equal to that of the Vanish (3.6 seconds), while top speed checks in at over 206 mph.
Creating the consummate power supply, the BRABUS T65 RS performance kit was again put to work, which includes two enhanced turbochargers, a new intercooler with 4 water/air heat-exchangers, an additional radiator, three electric high performance coolant pumps, a dynamic pressure lowering metal catalytic converter and BRABUS’ software programming for the engine ECU. The result is a one-off SL65 AMG Black Series that at present, holds title as the most powerful BRABUS-tuned SL65 AMG Black Series in existence.
