We have been indeed fortunate to see the unmasked edition of the new Brabus 800 E V12 Cabriolet. The car that has its base on the Mercedes E-Class Convertible boasts smart engineering that brings to the fore a biturbo 6.3-liter V12 engine with 800 PS (588 kW / 788 hp) and an electronically-limited 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque.
Looks like the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show is up for some serious surprise! A teaser video filmed in the Brabus factory in Bottrop, Germany, hints that we may be viewing the fastest Smart in the world.
Brabus has unveiled the new model 800 Widestar. The vehicle is hailed as the most powerful SUV in the world, owing to its exceptional design. The Widestar comes equipped with a 6.3-liter bi-turbo V12 engine that churns out 800 PS (588 kW / 788 hp) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque that is electronically limited.
Brabus has introduced the world’s most powerful sedan at the Frankfurt Auto show recently. It is the 4th generation of their E V12. Custom front bucket seats, leather and Alcantara covered rear seats with carbon fiber for the interior trim. The crowd stunning feature is the raw power of the 6.3 liter engine at 800hp, that’s 125 hp+ per liter. Four exhaust pipes at the rear warn people this is no sedate sedan. The ugly duckling feature is the speed pads, basically a cover on the rear wheels to improve aerodynamics, while the front end is designed to minimize aerodynamic lift on the front axle, boosting steering traction. Looks nothing short of cool!
The new Brabus E-class tuning program will be the applied to the E500. That means it will see a dramatic “beefing” of its engine from a 5.5-litre V8 increased to a 6.1-litre, which adds up to 462hp of peak power and 615Nm of maximum torque allowing the new car to race from 0 – 100km/h in 4.7 seconds and top off at a hazy 305km/h. Apart from the increased power and output options, the Brabus tuning kit also adds to its looks and style. Sporting light alloy wheels ranging from 17- to 20-inches, LED daytime running lights, chrome-plated tailpipes and multimedia system with 7-inch LCD display, DVD player and ultra-cool leather interiors, the latest offering from the Brabus truly offers the perfect blend of style and substance!

Over the past three decades Brabus has perfected the art of transplanting large and extremely powerful engines into the bodies of small cars. That path led to numerous world records and entries into the Guinness Book of World Records. The Brabus Bullit, built in small-series production based on the new Mercedes C-Class sedan, celebrates its world debut at the IAA 2007 as the ultimate wolf in sheepâ€™s clothing.
At the heart of this supercar Brabus placed the Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine. The implantation of the 6.3-liter engine into the confines of the W 204 series body is yet more proof for the superiority of Brabus know-how. The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine delivers 720 bhp of superlative power and 974 lb-ft of superlative peak torque.
The performance figures for the Brabus Bullit place it into pole position in its class: The car sprints from 0 â€“ 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, reaches 124 mph after just 10.49 seconds and shatters the 186-mph (300 km/h) barrier after a mere 24.5 seconds. Top speed is more than 224 mph. There are only a very few super sports cars in the world that can hope to match these numbers.
All-in-all, this is one serious motorcar. Massive engine, massive brakes, massive power… any way you look at it, this thing is fast…
