Default merc cls brabus out

hey guys i was going thru times motoring newspaper which had an article about brabus doing up the cls class

its the fastest four door saloon in the world with a top speed of 362 kmph. it will be out for sale soon. but the speed would be limited to 350 kmph due to legalities.

the kit on the cls merc was very simple but looked classy. the brabus alloys like always were exquisite.

will try to get the pictures soon.

Brabus already had a CLS version out about a year or so back, this is their newer version...

They has a Brabus CLS 6.1s for 120k USD based on a CLS500..

I think this one would be based on the CLS55..but it no doubt looks absolutely wicked..

Brabus Rocket was announced a year ago, right? I even saved press release pictures of it. Or did they announce, and properly launch it only now?

Dont expect to see them here..period...it costs in excess of 300 k Euros I believe, no one in their right mind would spend that money, when you can get many many cars, far more griping than this...Rolls, Murcielago, 599, Maybach 57, F430 + Gallardo + 5 series..you know what I mean..this is hardly meant to be sold to many, may be a select few who have everything and just want to brag about having the fastest sedan..and I personally think this is made by brabus to show the world their capabilities rather than sell a bundle..
