Brabus Maybach 57 V12 Biturbo brakes speed record
The Brabus Maybach 57 V12 Biturbo has just became the world’s fastest ultra-luxury sedan, reaching a whopping speed of 205.2 mph (330.6 km/h) on the Nardo track in Italy. The car is powered by Brabus’ 730-hp SV12 S Biturbo engine and broke the record set also by a Brabus car, the Maybach 57 SV12 Biturbo, with 195 mph (314 km/h). This is impressive, especially when you talk about a 3-tons car. The SV12 engine was developed for the Brabus Rocket project, based on the Mercedes CLS, which is by far the world’s fastest sedan, reaching an astonishing 227.2 mph (365.7 km/h) top speed.
The increased engine displacement (from 5.5 to 6.3 liters) was obtained by using a special crankshaft with longer stroke, precision-balanced piston rods, larger pistons to account for the increased cylinder bore, precision-machined cylinder heads and special camshafts. The engine is also fitted with a high-performance turbocharging system with special manifolds, two larger turbochargers, more efficient intercoolers, and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts.
And, of course, being a Brabus, the car has everything a rich ass needs: LED lights integrated into the body that illuminate the ground beside and behind the car, so you don’t slip with your $5000 shoes in potholes or puddles, exclusive custom-tailored interiors, custom-tailored Brabus lambs wool floor mats 15.2-inch flat screens integrated into the back of the front seats or 6-disc DVD changer. So, tell us here, how would you feel going 200 mph in this?
