These Brakes Are Hotter Than a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion

Back in 2012, the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Blend received the title of world's hottest Chili pepper, measuring around two million SHU (Scoville Heat Units) units on the Scoville scale.
Obviously, the only similarity between a Chilli pepper and the CLS 63 AMG red hot disk brake above is just that, they're both red hot.

But, while we haven't yet tasted a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, we did go for a drive in a Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG 4Matic a few weeks ago and we usually enjoy spicy food, so we kind of relate to both the photo and the Chilli pepper.

The photo above was taken by the tuning experts from PP Performance, and from what we gather the CLS 63 AMG in question is one of their project cars. Speaking of which, we should probably tell you that PP Performance offers a tuning package for the CLS 63 AMG which can squeeze over 750 hp form its M157 engine, while its 0-200 km (124 mph) time is just 10.8 seconds with rear wheel drive.
