German tuning house Brabus has introduced a tuning package for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG called the Widestar, and the Brabus Widestar SLS made its official debut at the Essen Motor Show, which began over the weekend.

The Brabus rendition of the Gullwing throws in a number of items, headed by a new titanium exhaust system with a sound-management system that’s driver controllable – via a pneumatic flap, the system has a sport mode that offers more growl than the stock SLS, but if it’s quiet you want, a ‘coming home’ setting gets the dB lower than that of the standard exhaust. It also adds a neat 10 hp to the 6.2 litre V8’s output.

The Widestar SLS is lower than the stock car by 30 mm, and features a new height-adjustable suspension, developed with Bilstein, with optional stiffer front and rear swaybars also available for the car.

Externally, the Widestar aero kit is made up of a host of carbon-fibre bits – among these, a front spoiler, boot lid spoiler, larger front fender air outlets, a rear diffuser and rear wheel arches featuring air inlets/outlets. A choice of matt or gloss finish, or that following the body colour, can be had.

The Widestar SLS also gets the wheel treatment, naturally, in this case a ultra-light Monoblock F Platinum Edition forged wheels, available in 20- and 21-inch sizes, and they come wearing either 275/30 ZR20 and 295/25 ZR21 Yokohama rubbers. Inside the cabin, custom options abound, from premium upholstery in leather and Alcantara to carbon-fibre inlays in any desired colour.
