German tuning company, Brabus, has unveiled its Widestar - a wider and more aggressively styled version of the Mercedes SLS AMG.

Its re-work includes a carbon-fibre body kit with front spoiler, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, wider wheel arches and air vents, making the Widestar 20mm wider than the SLS it is based on.

Also included in the package are lightweight forged alloy wheels, electronically adjustable suspension kit – which can lower the car by up to 30mm – and a titanium exhaust system weighing only 12kg and boosting power output by 10bhp, the company claims.

Inside, Brabus offers carbon-fibre inlays in a variety of colours, alcantara steering wheel, alcantara and leather seats and a revised 250mph speedometer.

How is this better than the standard SLS? Looks worse, goes no faster...Fools and their money!

Since the regulat SLS is too wide in the first place , I can't see how making it wider will improve it. ( I mean of course that it is too wide for normal European roads )

For some reason the AMG challenge in gran turismo has made me fall in love with this car. Such a machine.

Brabus Widestar? surely even wider star. Pity no insane power numbers as this is what Brabus are all about.
