Brabus Rocket: World’s Fastest Sedan @ 227 MPH (362.4 km/h)










The BRABUS ROCKET, built in small-series production based on the Mercedes CLS series, is the world's fastest sedan.

During test runs on the high-speed track in the southern Italian town of Nardo the 348,000-euro high-performance automobile improved upon the previous record of 350.2 km/h, held also by BRABUS with the E V12 Biturbo.

The heart of the new record car is the twin-turbo V12 engine from the latest Mercedes 600 models. It was fitted into the tight confines of the four-door with almost surgical precision.

Brabus increases displacement to 6,233 ccm with a special crankshaft, larger cylinder bore and forged pistons. In addition the engine is extensively modified internally: Airflow in both intake and outlet manifolds of both cylinder heads is optimized and sport camshafts are installed.

The BRABUS engine specialists further equip the engine with custom-developed larger turbochargers, a more efficient intercooling system and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with four exhaust pipes and low back-pressure metal catalysts. Newly programmed engine electronics orchestrate the perfect interaction of all new components and contribute not only to maximum power yield but also to meeting the latest EURO IV emission limits.

BRABUS S V12 S Biturbo engine is the most powerful TÜV-tested engine of German origin

I love Brabus and I love the CLS, but is it just me or does that thing look like a G35 sedan from the front?

And it is detuned with much left in it's current state, just needs a stronger differential and tranny to go further over the edge. It makes more torque than a Bugatti Veyron.

I would guess it's pump, but I don't know for sure.

I guess the CLS is more aerodynamic than the E class...it really is the perfect DD.

Easy question to answer. ;)

Gallardo, Murcie, 430, DB9, Carrera GT, Ford GT, 997TT, whatever you feel like it!! :bigthumb: :bigthumb:

I honestly dont see a CLS63 as a toy, more like a uber fast, uber luxurious , uber comfortable and uber stylish daily driver.

I don't know why I really asked that question, as if I'm conservative in that regard. A twin supercharged F430 would make a nice weekend toy...

CLS63 is more DD friendly, but the Brabus Rocket could get you into trouble driving it everyday in more ways than one.........
