Brabus SV12 R fq

With the Frankfurt Motor Show only days away it’s time for German tuner Brabus to show off something outrageous. What Brabus are unleashing this year is what it claims to be the world’s fastest executive luxury sedan. The mean machine is based on the facelifted 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and is named the SV12 R Biturbo 750.

The Brabus SV12 R is a car for drivers who feel that the 612-horsepower stock S65 AMG just isn’t quick enough. The SV12 R features a 6.3-litre twin-turbo V12 that dishes out 750 horses and a ridiculous 995 lb-ft of torque.

A special crankshaft with longer stroke, forged pistons with a larger diameter and an increased cylinder bore result in a displacement increase from standard 5.5 to now 6.3-liters. The engine is also upgraded with larger turbochargers, an optimised intercooling system and a stainless-steel exhaust system with high-flow catalysts. The ECU also gets retuned to ensure the vehicle meets EURO IV emission regulations.

The end result is a 0-100 kph time of 4.0 seconds flat and a top speed of 340 kph. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission.

Cosmetically a new aero kit is utilised, as are a variety of wheel designs for maximum VIP bling. The car will make its debut later this month at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
