Ballistic Brabus hits 212mph
From Top Gear.com
Just as the dust settles on the hoo-hah surrounding the new Mercedes S-Class, along comes Brabus and kicks sand, dust and gravel in everyone's faces with the S V12 S Biturbo.
Keen students of deciphering the German tuning firm's names policy will quickly garner that this baby has a twin turbo V12.
With engine size increased to 6.3 litres and those turbos, Brabus has realised a heavyweight 730bhp and astonishing 974lb ft of torque.
Any idle boasting among friends of 0-60mph times will soon be flattened when the Brabus owner drops into the conversation the S V12 S Biturbo's 0-125mph time of 11.9 seconds. Top speed is 212mph. Game over.
