720 hp Mercedes C-Class tuning by Brabus

Brabus will present a high-performance tunning program for the new Mercedes C-Class at this week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. And if you think it’s name, Bullit, is just for marketing, well, you can’t be more wrong and here are it’s tech specs, to convince you that it really is almost as fast as a bullet.

The 6.3L V12 engine was modified and it now develops 720 horsepower and 974 lb-ft of torque, but it was limited at 811 lb-ft to preserve the tires and gearbox. The super C-Class now sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in only 3.9 seconds, it reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.49 seconds and it reaches its top speed of 300 km/h (186mph) after 24.5 seconds.

To make all that power as comfortable as possible for the passengers, the Bullit has a revised suspension and braking system. No word so far on how much this tuning program will cost, but one thing’s for sure, it will be a lot.

Later Edit: We found out the price: $475,000 / 348,000 €. So, if you want a high performance sedan at the price of a Lambo or an SLR, start saving.
