Cool 2012 Brabus Rocket 800 - Revealed!

The beast is back, this time, with more lunatic figures. 789 bhp and 1,100 Nm to be precise. On a four-door saloon!
German tuner Brabus will be bringing this 2012 Brabus Rocket 800, based on the Mercedes-Benz CLS, to the Frankfurt motor show tomorrow for an official debut.
For the Rocket 800, the V12 on the CLS gets dialed up to 800 PS (588 kW / 789 hp) while torque has been limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) - but the engine is capable of producing 1,420 Nm (1047 lb-ft). Transmission is the 7-speed AMG Speedshift MCT which allows the Rocket 800 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph). The car makes it to the 300 km/h (186 mph) mark in 23.8 seconds.
On the outside is a body kit which includes the large air intakes that reworked power plant is going to need, as well as the usual fittings with widening wheel arches that big rear wing.
Wheels are the lightweight Brabus Monoblock F Platinum Edition and the cabin also gets an ultra-luscious finish.
Price on this ultimate sedan: €429,000, not including taxes.

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please avoid typing with excessive dots.........like................this. Thanks

The SICK got even SICKER... Would love to have one of those.. Looking at the cls its pretty safe to say that the a7 or 5er gt have no chance at all...

Brabus never disappoints... except for the big B in the grill... i think the MB star would go way way better...

Wow! 1000+ Nm of torque. So will this atleast win against the Tug-of-war champions(Topgear competition during some old season).
Little OT: A couple of days ago I saw a Brabus smart. Yes, you all read it correctly, Brabus Smart . The engine growl was ferocious! Brabus really makes mercedes look better and its better than AMG for those who have money in excess

Something a little more interesting: The Brabus tuned C Coupe.
The engineers at Brabus bored out the block to 6.3 liters of displacement, up from 5.5 liters in factory form. Throw in a pair of turbos and you have a vehicle capable of dumping a staggering 1,047 pound-feet of torque on the rear tires. Or at least you would if Brabus didn't have to electronically limit final output to 811 lb-ft of torque. The company says there simply isn't a transmission out there capable of standing up to that kind of twist. Even with the limited grunt, the Bullit Coupe can pop off a 0-62 mph run in 3.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 229 mph.
