Car Porn | Zeh Germans Knowz How To Hit Zeh Donuts In Shtyle

If God himself were to walk the Earth, 
He would be driving His self in one of these.
German tuner company Brabus took what I considered an already beautiful vehicle, then somehow crammed an 800 hp, 12 cylinder engine and 2, count them 1, 2 turbos into the bay of the E Class convertible. Do you want to even fathom the price? $680,000.

Now what exactly do you get for three quarter mill after taxes? They take Mercedes' 5.5 liter and bore and stroke it to 6.3, give you a custom intake manifold, add two turbochargers with four fraggin' intercoolers! That's not a very large car to begin with and to try and stuff all that muscle into that car is a logistic feat in and of itself. Then beef up the stock 5-speed automatic to handle the 811 ft/lbs of torque which has been actually electronically limited from 1,047 ft/lbs, replace the fenders with carbon fiber goodies and you have what can truly be called a Germanic Warhorse.

Brabus' own custom limited slip will get you from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, 120 in 9.9 seconds and tops out at 231 miles per God blessed hour! Of course the mandatory custom suspension is present along with 15 inch brakes with 12 piston calipers up front and 6 piston rears.

The deafening roar you'll hear at the Rapture won't be that of the Four Horsemen, it'll be the Creator rollin' up in one of these to let you know it's all good.
