MERCEDES GLK

40 posts in this topic

****Black Death: meet the world’s fastest SUV****You are looking at the fastest SUV in the world. Your eyes may hurt. This is the Brabus Bi-Turbo V12 GLK, a massively tuned version of Merc's sort-of-off-roader that's capable of - ready? Sure? OK then - 211mph. 211mph. In an SUV. Whichever way you look at that number, it's just... wrong, isn't it? That frankly disturbing pace comes courtesy of Merc's V12, stroked from 5.5 to 6.3 litres and - thanks to the addition of a couple of turbos and plenty of other shiny stuff - putting out 740bhp and 995lb ft of torque. Those are dangerous numbers. The Bi-Turbo GLK will nail the 0-62mph sprint in 4.2 seconds, which might sound (relatively) modest until you consider the sort of gearing required to get an SUV to 211mph. A better indicator of the sheer oomph on tap is that it'll accelerate from standstill to 124mph in just over 12 seconds. Again, those are dangerous numbers. As is this one: 397,000. That's the cost, in Euros, of the Brabus GLK. That's about £360,000 - or around five times the cost of the BMW X5M. Insane? Or genius? Or both? You decide...http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/merc-glk-2009-12-14mercedes20glk20undisgui.jpgmercedesglkclass20105od.jpgbrabusmercedesglkwidest.jpg

I never got the "you'll never be able to take it to that speed" argument.If that was the logic we'd all be driving around in f*ck*ng G-Whiz's.
