SV12 R Biturbo 800 by Brabus

Monday, February 21, 2011

Brabus has unveiled the fastest and most powerful sedan in the world - the SV12 R Biturbo 800.

Essentially a revised SV12 R, the Biturbo features a 5.5-liter V12 engine which has been bored to 6.3-liters. Besides the extra displacement, engineers added a new crankshaft, larger pistons, high-performance camshafts and optimized cylinder heads. Furthermore, the company installed a carbon fiber air intake, new turbochargers, four intercoolers, a sport exhaust, and a recalibrated ECU.

Thanks to all these changes, the V12 produces a staggering 800 PS (788 bhp / 588 kW) and 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft) of torque. Sadly, the latter figure is electronically limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) for "technical reasons." Despite this, the ├╝ber sedan accelerates from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.3 seconds. If that isn't fast enough, keep your foot planted and the Biturbo will eventually top out at an electronically limited 350 km/h (217 mph).

To ensure the car remains stable at speed, Brabus equipped it with an aerodynamic body kit, high-performance tires (from Pirelli or YOKOHAMA), a revised suspension module (which lowers the ride height by 15mm), beefier brakes, and a limited-slip differential.
