Wow, thats one neat car! AMG is known to do these one-off jobs for a limited run like the C43AMG which it did 8 years back!

The only reason i can see for a limited top speed on it is the inability of the tyres to go beyond that point to perform at its optimum level.

I don't however see tech specs of the car. Can you help with that Brabus?

May i ask why it would blow only the M BMs away in particular, and not any other car that won't match up to it's specifications?

As far as specs are considered, it uses the same 5.5L supercharged V8, just like almost every other AMG, and makes around 582 BHP. And of course, just like every other AMG, costs a bomb too.

BTW, this car has been covered months back

Also It has no competition with the M5 or the M3 may be it does with M3 GTR

Its a 225k USD car, 2.33 times more expensive than M5 and 4.5 times more expensive than M3

This is meant to be a street version of their race going DTM...so I wouldnt comapre it to the street going powerful cars..

I would have to do a little bit of reading on the M3 GTR, but that you can say it doesn surely blow it away..but if an M6 CSL GTR comes out sometime in 2007..forget this, this will be eating M6s dust, I can tell u that

M6 compares to CLK AMG so not fair to compare it with M3, so thats y wait for the M6 GTR or M6 CSL or M6 CSL GTR

and to mercs traditon, this is a very exp car!!



the left one is the race version and in the right side the road going version. the race version is quicker and more faster!!!
