The automotive world has witnessed the unveiling of a new high-performance roadster that not only embodies power and speed but also pays tribute to an iconic figure in the realm of automotive refinement. The BRABUS 750 Bodo Buschmann Edition 1 of 25, a limited special model bearing the name of BRABUS founder, Bodo Buschmann, is now available for a select few. This highly exclusive roadster builds upon the formidable platform of the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 4MATIC+ Roadster. BRABUS has taken this impressive base and amplified its features to reach unprecedented heights of performance, elegance, and exclusivity. The car it pays homage to is a 90s BRABUS masterpiece: a BRABUS 7.3 S SL roadster powered by a 574-horsepower, 571 lb/ft 7.3-liter V12 engine that was famously photographed with its hood off to show off the car’s zany powerplant. Fortunately, BRABUS has given this new SL-based creation the same treatment.
At the heart of the BRABUS 750 lies an eight-cylinder, twin-turbo engine fitted with the new BRABUS PowerXtra B40S-750 performance upgrade. This revamp pushes the output to a staggering 740 horsepower and a peak torque of 664 lb/ft. These figures translate into a sprint time of less than 3.3 seconds from 0-60 and an electronically limited top speed of 196 mph.
The roadster’s unique looks are hard to miss, with its distinctive BRABUS Monoblock II evo “PLATINUM EDITION” three-spoke wheels, inspired by the original 7.3 S. True to BRABUS tradition, the 750 Bodo Buschmann Edition also boasts an exquisite interior. Wrapped in elaborately quilted and embossed black leather and high-gloss carbon, the cabin creates a truly luxurious atmosphere. Moreover, a limited-edition badge bearing Bodo Buschmann’s signature is an elegant reminder of the legacy that inspires this unique supercar.
In line with its pursuit of excellence, BRABUS goes beyond providing sheer power, ensuring that this power is perfectly controlled. The car’s aerodynamics were developed in a wind tunnel, and all components are made from carbon, which can either come with a high-gloss sealed surface finish or a matte coating, depending on the buyer’s preference.
The BRABUS 750 Bodo Buschmann Edition 1 of 25 retails at roughly $370,000. Only 25 units of this rare Mercedes-Benz will be made, making it an extremely exclusive vehicle for a select group of automotive enthusiasts. Whether for its compelling performance, distinctive styling, or its tribute to the company’s founder and its legendary roadster, the BRABUS 750 Bodo Buschmann Edition undoubtedly stands as a testament to BRABUS’ dedication to automotive refinement.
