A fully equipped SL600 is ordered from Mercedes-Benz and is sent to Brabus factory where the engine is removed and completely stripped down. Cylinders are bored to 83mm and a special crankshaft is ordered, steel conrods and Mahle pistons are fitted to increase capacity from 5 ½ litres to 6.3. With new engine management and new camshafts plus a few other tweaks, power increases to 640bhp at a cost of £27,000.

Described as being in excellent condition and with only 2 owners from new, this rare Brabus is number 11 of a total run of 40 cars and offers superb value for money considering that just six years ago this very car was sold for around £150,000. As you would expect with a top of the line Mercedes it is fitted with all the toys including
