If you thought of the most unlikely combination in the world, what would it be? A V12 Biturbo Mercedes S600 and an interior trimmed out like an Apple store?
That’s probably not the first thing that springs to mind, but that’s exactly what Brabus has done for the iBusiness package.
Fans of both brands will be treated to an Apple interior featuring a rear compartment with two Apple iPads, two multimedia screens on the back of the front seats and a 64GB iPod Touch. The two iPads can also control the car’s COMAND system, which handles the radio, navigation system and telephony.
If you don’t like the touch screen iPad’s, there will be ample table space for your keyboard and mouse. The fully adjustable tables are electronically deployed from special BRABUS seatback consoles and will be covered in leather upholstery.
The central hub for the setup is a Mac mini hidden under the rear shelf in an electronically deployed drawer. Internet connectivity for all this equipment is provided via a 3G connection which is UMTS and HSDPA capable.
Brabus didn’t stop with just the interior as the car now features a 6.3 litre V12 twin turbo engine that generates a whopping 750hp and 1,350Nm of torque. This was achieved by adding larger turbochargers, a revised intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance quad exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts. The engine’s maximum torque is so great that it had to be electronically limited to 1,100Nm.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a five-speed automatic transmission and a much needed option that Brabus is offering with this car, is a limited slip differential. Brabus claim this to be the fastest luxury sedan in the world as it has a top speed of 340km/h and hits the century mark in just 4.0 seconds.
Aerodynamics has also been improved with large center air inlet, BRABUS sill skirts, rear spoiler lip, new rear fascia with centrally located reflector and BRABUS quad sport exhaust system. Adding to the looks will be aluminum sport fenders, along with LED daytime running lights, lights on the sills and on the underside of the rear which illuminate the ground behind the vehicle.
Brabus have also custom tailored a choice of tires, brakes and suspension. This will be light alloy wheels ranging from 19 to 21 inches. All in all a perfect combination of tech and unadulterated power. Unfortunately Brabus hasn’t announced any pricing figures, but with that much tech and ponies, expect it to cost a bomb!
