3 December 2010

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.

See the official pics of the Brabus Widestar

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 )

Got to make it appeal to Uncle Sam!, 'Widestar' , 'Lone star', Texas y'all, yee haa!

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.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
