Brabus E V12 Biturbo

The world’s fastest sedan record has been broken again with the introduction of the Brabus E V12 Biturbo sedan, based on the current Mercedes Benz W211 E-Class sedan.

The 2005 Brabus E V12 is surgically implanted with the V12 5.5 litre twin-turbo engine that Mercedes uses in it’s S-class luxury cars. The engine bay had to be modified.

The Mercedes V12 5.5 litre twin-turbo engine had been rebored with new pistons and with a new longer stroke crankshaft, it’s displacement was increased to 6.3 litres.

Other modifications to the engine include more aggresive camshaft profiles, remachined cylinder heads and a sports exhaust system that allows all that monsterous power to exhale easily.

The result is a frightening 640hp at 5100rpm and 1026Nm of torque at a low 1750rpm. Madness!

So how does this translate when brought to the racetracks? 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds, 0-200km/h in 11.7 seconds, and 0-300km/h in 30.6 seconds. Top speed is 350.2 km/h. OMGWTFBBQ!

With that crazy acceleration power you need good brakes. So Brabus has slapped on 14.8 inch ceramic disk brakes with 12-piston calipers on the front and 14 inch cross-drilled ventilated steel discs with 6-piston calipers on the rear. Those ceramic disk brakes will make dogs go crazy when the brakes are applied. The noise they make are not audible to our ears.

Power is put to the wheels through a 5-speed automatic gearbox. Hmm, doesn’t Mercedes Benz already have 7-speed 7G-Tronic automatics available already?

Specially designed Brabus bodykits with aerodynamic properties are also fitted to generate enough downforce to keep that whole bunch of excellent engineering on the ground.

The car costs 298,000 Euro. I think with taxes slapped on and everything, it would cost close to RM4 million in Malaysia?

What are you waiting for… there’s a Brabus showroom in Bangsar. Go buy one and let me test drive it! :P

    m5 doesnt compare with brabus. wait for alpina version of bmw5. the current alpina b7 (based on 7series of course) is one very fast superluxocar.

    as for 7speed auto, i doubt it can take the 1000nm of torque. The hydraulic converter will be so twisted!

    My neighbour bought one…but I'm sure if it is the 6.3litres version. I'm very sure I saw it as a Brabus with all the body kits. He mention that he bought it around RM700+k. Rich dude. I wish I'm driving that car.

  • Philip: cannot be… 700K can't buy you this one. I think it's one of the lower end Brabus with mostly bodykits and mild tuning only.

  • daniel: the jazz is more expensive than the city because the city is assembled here, while the jazz is fully imported. the 1.3 and 1.5 i-dsi is from thailand and the 1.5 vtec is direct from japan.

  • Lvin: Honda Malaysia used to call the 1.4 i-DSI as a 1.3 here. And the engine code is L13A anyway. Even Honda tries to make people think it's a 1.3.

  • Old man's car what the fork…just imagine you driving this monster and smoking some Jingjangjoe in their souped up Honda Civic or Mistu Evo for that matter. Tak payah susah, just smile and press on the accelerator & 640 horses + 1026 Nm torque will pull you to glory.

    Sure balik mengigau tak sudah kalah dengan Mercedes Benz..

    Are you serious that the max speed would be 350kmh? that means it would be around 220 mph!! That's like damn fast!!! You mean it is as fast as an F1 car? I'm sorry but I just won't believe it. Even a proper sports car like the Enzo and the Zonda would struggle to reach those speeds, how can a luxury sedan like that with all the weight of it's accessories go as fast? I'm sure with all the power at its disposal, it would go fast…but even if that is a predicted speed, it needs to be more realistic. Also ceramic disc brakes? Nice!!! Brabus just have to make sure it wouldn't catch fire like the ones on the SLR.
