Default 800 bhp Brabus E class W212 E V12 revealed

from worldcarfans


Brabus has unveiled the limited edition E V12 sedan.


Based on the new 2010 Mercedes E-Class W 212, the E V12 features a 6.0-liter V12 biturbo bored out to 6.3-liters producing 800 hp and 1420 Nm of torque (it's electronically limited to 1,100 Nm). While details are limited, Brabus outfitted the engine with a ram-air system, a quad-exhaust, and revised engine electronics.


To keep the beast under control, the company added a fully adjustable sports suspension, new stabilizers, a high performance braking system, and black 19-inch alloy wheels outfitted with 255/35 (front) and 285/35 (rear) tires.


In terms of styling, Brabus made major modifications to improve aerodynamics, engine ventilation, and brake cooling. Changes include a revised front bumper, new front quarter panels, aggressive side sills, and rear wheel covers. Out back, the car features a trunk-mounted spoiler and a carbon fiber rear diffuser.


Thanks to all these tweaks, the E V12 rockets from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds, and 0-300 km/h (186 mph) in 23.9 seconds. If you keep your foot planted, the car will eventually top out at an electronically limited 350 km/h (217 mph). Without the limiter, Brabus estimates the car can hit a top speed in excess of 370 km/h (230 mph). Fuel consumption is rated at 15.7L/100km (15 mpg), while CO2 emissions are 372 g/km.


Inside, the car features black leather upholstery, an Alcantara headliner, carbon fiber trim, and a 400 km/h (249 mph) speedometer.
Production will be limited to ten units, and prices start at 600,000 ($875,000 USD).

those wheel covers make the car look like it came straight from the movie death race 2
aerodynamics ruled over form I'm sure.

I hope the rear wheel covers are removable. They make the Car look really pathetic. Its price is 498,000 Euros! The previous gen was 350,000 Euros. Man I love the previous gen Brabus E V12. If I had the money I would buy that but definately not this one. A previous gen E V12 + a G55 AMG for the same money!

Well, technically yes, because i think it's the emergency/parking brake pedal. Remember Mercedes still persists with foot operated parking brakes instead of a handbrake..

For 875000 USD,
even if I had money to burn,
even if I already owned Fs, Ls, AMs, etc in the garage, I would still buy :

1. spanking new V8 Ferrari or V10 LP
2. AM V12
3. E63 and get aftermarket mods (reliable or unreliable mods to produce comparable
power)

I would still have enough cash to customise the interior and exterior of all the cars to my taste.
