As you may know already, Brabus is well-known for its fastest streer-legal sedans for many years, especially since 1996, when the German tuner unveiled the Brabus E V12 that had a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). Things started to move when the German tuner unveiled the Brabus Rocket back in 2006. Based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the car had a record top sped of 365.7 km/h (222.7 mph).
The Brabus E V12 "one of ten" based on the E-Class pushed the things even further with its top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph).
At this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the tuning company unveiled the new Brabus 800 V12 Biturbo based on the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS.
According to Brabus, the new car is powered by a V12 Biturbo engine delivering an impressive 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW and and a peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft), which in the car is limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
With a starting price of 429,000 euros, the car has some impressive performances: 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, 0 – 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.8 seconds, 0 – 300 km/h (186 mph) in 23.8 seconds and a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph).
Regarding the body kit, we must admit that it is impressive… of course, the price was the guarantee that everything you will get is at the highest levels.
As you can see, the Brabus Rocket 800 received a new front bumper with big air inlets, a new front grille with new air inlets which shows that this is no ordinary car, new side sills, a new rear spoiler with integrated air diffuser and 4-pipe exhaust system as well as a new rear trunk spoiler.
The interior is even more interesting and according to Brabus it can be customized in every way you want… if you have the money for it! The Brabus speedometer with 400-km/h (250-mph) dial is also part of the custom-tailored interior!
