With an 800-hp/ 588-kW Brabus V12 Biturbo twelve-cylinder high-capacity engine in the body of the open-top Mercedes E-Class, Brabus has transformed this already great car into an epic monster.The Brabus E V12 Cabriolet is a high-performance car that reaches a top speed of up to 370 km/h and is the world’s most powerful and fastest four-seater cabriolet. It is built to order, starting at EUR 478, 000.
Brabus engineers had already built numerous E V12 sedans and coupes, but this cabriolet required a little more precision to implant their most powerful engine in their line-up (based on the three-valve V12 engine of the current Mercedes S 600) and a reinforced five-speed automatic transmission in the engine bay.
This insane custom car sprints from rest to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and after 9.9 seconds it already reaches a speed of 200 km/h.
The aerodynamic-enhancement components include a front apron to reduce lift on the front axle and to guide cooling air to the radiators and front brakes, air outlets in the sides to route hot air away from the heat exchangers, a widened body that improves directional stability, newly designed front sport fenders that widen the track (for wheels mounted with size 265/30 ZR 19 tires), and special carbon-fiber rear fender flares adding 2.4 inches to the width (creating space for ten-inch wide wheels mounted with high-performance tires up to size 295/30 ZR 19).
Special suspension components were custom-designed for the front and rear axle, providing a range of ten selectable individual suspension settings. The high-performance brake system features vented and grooved steel brake discs and 12-piston aluminum fixed callipers on the front axle and discs with 6-piston aluminum fixed callipers in the rear.
The interior features a cockpit clad in a perfectly finished combination of lipstick-red and black leather.
The ergonomically shaped steering wheel and the inlays are made from genuine carbon fiber on the dashboard, centre console and side trim which add sporty highlights, and then the speedometer dial bears witness to the unique performance potential of the open-top four-seater car.
