The worlds fastest production sedan is........
Go home Flying Spur.we have a new king.
Babrus Mercedes EV12 BiTurbo
The world’s fastest street-legal sedan comes yet again from BRABUS. With a top speed of 350.2 km/h (217.6 mph) the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo, powered by a 640-hp / 471-kW twin-turbo twelve cylinder engine, set a new world record during the ‘auto motor und sport’ magazine high-speed tests in Nardo, Italy.
The engine of the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo delivers an enormous maximum power output of 640 hp / 471 kW at 5,100 rpm, and an even more impressive peak torque of 1,026 Nm (756.7 lb.-ft.) , available from a low 1,750 rpm.
The numbers turned in by the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo on the Nardo test track speak for themselves: In addition to reaching a top speed of 350.2 km/h the world’s fastest sedan also demonstrated excellent sprinter qualities: 4.5 seconds from von 0 - 100 km/h, 11.7 seconds from 0 - 200 km/h and 30.6 seconds to 300 km/h are unique for sedans.
The enormous performance also necessitates the use of special tires: The multi-piece BRABUS Monoblock VI light-alloy wheels in sizes 8.5Jx19 on the front axle and 9.5Jx19 in the rear are shod with high-performance tires from BRABUS technology partner Pirelli in sizes 255/35 ZR 19 in front and 285/30 ZR 19 on the rear axle.
The suspension of the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo is sporty yet comfortable with a ride height lowered by some 30 millimeters compared to its production brethren. BRABUS sport sway bars support the sporty handling with excellent ride comfort and large safety reserves.
Naturally BRABUS also equips the new E V12 Biturbo with a special high-performance brake system. The system is calibrated to the electro-hydraulic SBC brake system of the E*Class. It consists of 375-millimeter (14.8 inches) ceramic discs with 12-piston aluminum calipers on the front axle and six-piston calipers on 355-millimeter (14.0 inches) vented and perforated steel discs in the rear.
Excellent aerodynamic properties are essential at the high speeds so effortlessly attained by the new BRABUS E V12 Biturbo. BRABUS conducted extensive wind tunnel testing to ensure highest aerodynamic efficiency: The BRABUS front bumper with integrated spoiler and carbon lip not only looks striking, it also reduces lift on the front axle, thus further optimizing directional stability at high speeds. Its aerodynamic counterpart in the rear is the BRABUS spoiler lip for the trunk lid, which noticeably reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds.
The BRABUS side sills give the sedan a lower, sleeker appearance. They also come with another interesting feature: Pushing a button on the keyless-entry remote or pulling on the door handles activates entrance lights integrated into the underside of the sills. These lights illuminate the ground next to the vehicle and make entering and exiting the vehicle safer. The strikingly styled BRABUS rear apron rounds out the sporty yet elegant exterior design of the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo.
The cockpit of the BRABUS E V12 Biturbo exudes a special ambiance: The four-door is equipped with an exclusive BRABUS fully leather interior crafted from a combination of especially soft yet durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara. Inserts made from genuine carbon in the dashboard, center console and door panels create a sporty feel. In addition the sedan can be equipped with a state-of-the-art BRABUS multimedia package with DVD player and LCD screens integrated into the back of the front headrests.
The BRABUS E V12 Biturbo is built in small-series production and starts at 298,000 Euros MSRP.

With that deep front spoiler and those awesome wheels, this car looks brutal. Specifications can blow your pants off! Sad it'll be just a limited production car.
By the way, another Merc tuning specialist, Kleeman have just annonced its version of the CLS500. It's called CLS50K S8. It's supercharged 4966cc V8 belts out 595bhp and 568lb ft (770NM) of torque. Top speed is restricted to 186mph (300km/h). Not the fastest 4 door, but fast enough and great looking.
