American fans of the CLA45 AMG who are longing for a 5-door hatchback version in the States may want to avert their eyes. What you see here is the A45 AMG which is, unfortunately, only available across the pond.
If the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe isn’t quite quick enough, expensive enough, or radical enough for you, than perhaps you should check out Brabus. The lunatic modifiers of all manner of Silver Arrows have just unveiled the Bullit Coupe 800 at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. And you thought Brabus only tuned Smart ForTwos.
Remember when Brabus used to make S-Classes with 1000 pound-feet of torque?
Brabus has created an updated executive tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with Apple’s iPad 2 tablet computer as its centerpiece, called the Brabus iBusiness 2.0. Plus, Brabus can drop in an 800-horsepower V-12, so you can conduct business (even video conferencing) at 219 miles per hour.
Brabus has debuted the Widestar version of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. As the name hints, the tuner has widened the rear of the gullwing’s body in order to add bigger tires in back, improving the car’s handling.
The Gullwing just got a little cooler, thanks to makeover by Brabus. The tuner added a titanium exhaust, electronically adjustable suspension, a carbon fiber aeroynamic package, lightweight wheels, and a custom interior to the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
We like the Mercedes-Benz GLK well enough. The small SUV’s chunky styling has split opinion at the Winding Road office, but we all agree that it’s a pretty good steer, and a really nice size for real world SUV use. None of us have ever requested a 750 horsepower, 995 pound-feet of torque, V-12 engined version of the GLK. Of course, none of us work for the sublimely nutty Brabus, either.
