What do you get? A powerful engine producing 445 bhp at 6,000 rpm compared with 360 bhp quite a lot of for a compact car like the SLK. And quick: Brabus quotes a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds. Top speed is limited to 190 mph, compared with a limit of 155 mph for the standard car. I doubt it will do more than 190 mph anyway, but by putting a limiter on the engine management system Brabus implies it will go faster.
It seems as though it is a legal requirement in the States that any top 10 sports cars of the decade list contain a Corvette and so it is here.

Changing your oil is also a fairly simple process. You only need oil, an oil filter, a container for the old oil and an oil filter wrench to remove your old filter. It helps to have something to put the car up on so you get under it. Regardless, the process should take no more than 15 to 25 minutes.
I have located and sold hundreds of classic and vintage vehicles, not only in the United States, but as far away as Denmark, the UK, Australia and Norway.
In 1954, the Mark 3 included a two door drop head coupe, and power from the 2267cc, straight 4-cylinder engine was increased to 80bhp. It had a top speed of 94mph and 0-60 in 17.4secs.
In supercars fact these are all factors used by Colin Chapman to design the early Lotus cars and since used by all racing car companies. In other words, the Camaro Freestream really takes advantage of Grand Prix technology to build a supercar.
