Brabus Vanish: The 800 HP.. um Gorilla?
If you’re one of those people that looks at the Merc SL65 AMG Black and goes “It’s nice and all, but couldn’t it have more power?” Then you’re our kind of person. The pedestrian Black series features a sissified 670 ponies from a boosted V12 6 litre Merc engine. Yawn. It’s also a a girly silver-grey color. In other words, it’s a total Grandma car. If your granny is Ma Schumacher.
Brabus got their hands on the 6-litre and slapped on some bigger turbos. The result is 800 hp. Then they actually painted the darn thing matte black and upgraded the exhausted, gearbox and brakes. At full tilt the Brabus Vanish hits 205 mph.
We’re almost sure there is enough torque to effect the rotation of the earth, provided you ever get traction
