Here we have a Brabus car released at the Geneva Auto Show, based off the Mercedes E-Class Coupe, and hiding a powerful V12 motor under the hood. They’re calling it the “Brabus E V12 Coupe,” but the tuners did more than just engine modifications. At the exterior level, the Mercedes coupe features a carbon fiber body kit consisting of a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and air vents in the front to reduce lifting forces. Several other exterior upgrades to the E-Class coupe include LED daytime running lights, a new adjustable coilover suspension kit, and underneath the 19-inch wheels, a high performance braking system. Be ready to hand over a ton of paper for this job however, since Brabus tuning doesn’t come cheap under the hood.
For a total price of 478,000 euros, you can have the Mercedes V12 Coupe that comes equipped with the Brabus SV12 R biturbo engine. On the dyno it puts down 788 hp with a maximum torque of 1,420 Nm, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds. Speed addicts can reach 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds, the crazies can push 300 km/h in 23.9 seconds, and if you’re insane, you can try to reach the top speed of 350 km/h. Please, just try not to kill anyone while driving on the Autobahn.
These numbers were accomplished with the additions of a new crankshaft, bored out cylinders, larger pistons, and upgraded electronics from the German Brabus technology. The Mercedes E-Class even received a custom version of the 5-speed automatic transmission that comes as a standard on the new Mercedes E models. A few extra aftermarket parts installed from Brabus include the limited slip differential to the rear wheel drive system, a stainless steel exhaust system, and new air intake kit.
