Tuning icon Brabus likes its reputation for setting global records for fastest cars and this time, it has done it again with this Mercedes-Benz GLK V12. The vehicle is able to go from 0 - 100km/h in 4.2 seconds and 0 - 200km/h in 12.8 seconds.
Two months ago, this car was tested for top speed at an Italian high-speed track where it posted 322.3 km/h (211 mph), making it the fastest street-legal SUV in the world, according to its press release.
Brabus had fitted the GLK with a massive 6.3-litre V12 bi-turbo engine with two large turbochargers, more efficient intercoolers, free-flow metal catalysts and a stainless steel exhaust system.
Maximum power is rated at 552kW (750hp) at 5,500rpm and peak torque is 1,350Nm (995 lb-ft) at 2,100rpm. Peak torque is limited to 1,100Nm (811 lb-ft). All of that goes to the rear wheels through a 5-speed automatic gearbox assisted by a limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 percent.
The package consists of an exterior kit that has a carbonfiber spoiler lip, a front apron with large air dams, Brabus Widestar fender flares that add 5cm (2 inches) to the width, underside LED lights, a Brabus roof spoiler to reduce aerodynamic lift and a Brabus stainless-steel sport exhaust system.
Five different wheel designs are available and they're sized 10Jx22 with Pirelli or Yokohama tires of up to size 285/25 ZR 22.
Of course, the interior is customizable and the buyer can opt for wood trim or carbonfiber panels, full leather upholstery with optional Alcantara elements and a 7-inch LCD screen.
