Based on the Mercedes-Benz SL600 roadster, Brabus have once again managed to create a unique and exciting machine. In this case, that goal is achieved by taking the somewhat small SL 600 roadster and putting in a somewhat huge tuned "S"-spec 7.3L V12 engine as well as tuning the suspension, brakes, wheels and aerodynamics with Brabus parts. The performance is remarkable, with the car being able to hit 60mph from 0 in just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of nearly 322kph. One of the most exclusive roadsters on the road today, the SL 7.3S also comes with (apart from all the goodies you'd find on a stock SL 600) crafted Brabus Mastik leather, a 200mph speedometer and a burl walnut shift knob. If you've got the cash and you're after something small yet eye-poppingly powerful, the SL 7.3S may just be what you're looking for.
