The new Mercedes-Benz E Class is quite a looker, having strayed away from the classic MB traditional and offered a more aggressive design. But when it comes to models from the German manufacturer, you can be sure that the tuning team at Brabus believes an improvement can be made. That is why the company will present the Brabus E V12 at this week’s Frankfurt Motor Show, a heavily modified version of the W 212 version of ther E Class, which will be powered, as the name implies, by the massive 6.3 liter V12 engine, assisted by two turbos, which will deliver 800 HP and 1,100 Nm of torque.
With the new engine, the car will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h or 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, and to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). But even though it is a truly epic engine, the fuel average isn’t through the roof, as you would expect: the Brabus E V12 averages 15.7 liters/100 km (15 mpg). Also, its CO2 emissions are around 372 g/km.
Don’t think that the tuning crew just swapped the engine, as new sport suspensions have also been fitted, with new stabilizers, a performance brake system and 19 inch alloy wheels, all to satisfy the brand new motor. On the outside, a revamped front spoiler, new side panels, revamped side skirts and an interesting aerodynamic shield on the rear wheels carefully paint the aggressive lines of the model. Inside the team outfitted it with black Alcantara leather and carbon fiber inserts.
In case this version really caught your attention, you’d better have 600,000 euros available and a ticket to the Frankfurt Motor Show where one of the 10 models due to be made will be showed to the general public. Stay tuned for more pics straight from the showroom floor.
