    Essen Motorshow 2010 pictures.....

    Well this past week I visitied the Essen motorshow. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and spoke to a few companies EDS, Dbilas, Dietz, H&R, Bilstein, Friedrich Motorsport, KW, Acrapovich, Dynavin and caught up with my friends at Merc and was on the Brabus stand as a invited guest for quite a while having a walk thorough their new products by the mr Brabus himself and getting some printouts.

    As said thoroughly enjoyed the show, although a few trader friends of mine were dissapointed by what was on offer. But really the buzz of the people and the size truely, impressed me, as it has been more then a few years since I last went to the Essen Motorshow and my has it grown in size to really quite somethng impressive.


    So enough babble and some pictures. No comments just my favourite the pictures.

    Great pics Basil. The girlfriends brother has a new SLS AMG number. The noise of it makes an F430 appear quiet.

    I came back on Monday Matt.

    Those Merc's really are something else. The SLS's are both Brabus's one is a phase 1 (Red car) , so bodykit and a few software tweeks, along with new alloys which debuted on the SLS and a higher performance exhaust and the Other (Black) is Phase 2 (same as the phase 1 but also and interior all in choice of leather incl. Headlining, bootliner and even customised leather suitcases to suit and included a titanoum exhast package). The C is the Brabus rocket and the SLR is a one off (cannot remember what it was for but is was a 772 version but more stripped out and more powerful). For some reason I did not take pics of the E class brabus (the one that is now currently the fastest sedan in the world so top speed 375kph to 385kph or possibly more. Possibly more because the tyres are the limiting factor (in the Buggatti Veyron mold they cannot keep up with the mechanics even thought they are specially made for the car) so they just said lets say more then 375kph.

    Phase 3 for the SLS will be debuted at Geneva in March/April which is the mental phase, so new engine and probably V12 twin turbos or something of the sort. Otto (Mr Brabus) was being coy and not very forthcoming with info and kept telling me you will have to wait for Geneva.

    Yup I love that noise. Proper race car style and all road legal as it never gets above 100db even under max load. Ferrari's are always quite in comparison
