Post Geneva Preview: BRABUS SLR McLaren and ULTIMATE 112 get yacht inspired

Okay what’s up with these auto makers getting influence from yacht design? Audi just announced the ‘yacht’ influenced Audi Q7 Coastline and now BRABUS has released their ‘yacht’ inspired SLR McLaren roadster and its Smart ForTwo ULTIMATE 112. Both of the cars have absolutely identical paint and equipment, except under the hood.

The BRABUS tuning kit pumps 24 extra horses out of the SLR McLaren’s already powerful 5.5L supercharged for a total of 650 horsepower. Rest to 62mph comes in at 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 211mph.

The Smart ForTwo ULTIMATE 112 is fitted with BRABUS’ three-cylinder turbo engine that produces 112 horsepower, allowing for a 0-38mph time of 3.9 seconds and a 0-62mph time of 9.5 seconds.
