The new BRABUS E V12 follows in the footsteps of its legendary predecessor which opened the door to a new level of power and performance for sporty sedans: The first BRABUS E V12 based
on the E-Class of the W 210 model series gained entry into in the Guinness Book of World Records as the 'fastest sedan in the world' in October of 1996. Its top speed was 330 km/h.

The BRABUS E V12 of the model year 2004 is powered by the BRABUS SV 12 Biturbo increased-displacement engine, which is implanted with almost surgical precision into the modified engine
bay of the E-Class.

The displacement of the 12-cylinder biturbo engine, which normally resides in a current Mercedes S 600 model, is increased from 5.5 to 6.3 liters. The increase is facilitated with the installation of a custom-designed one-piece crankshaft, larger diameter pistons, corresponding larger bore and precision-balanced piston rods. The BRABUS engine is further fitted with sport camshafts,
precision-machined cylinder heads, a stainless-steel high-performance sport exhaust system with metal catalysts and four exhaust tips as well as newly programmed engine electronics.

With these modifications the engine of the BRABUS E V12 delivers a whopping 640 hp / 471 kW at 5,100 rpm and an even more impressive peak torque of 1,026 Nm, available from just 1,750 rpm.

Thus equipped the new BRABUS E V12 delivers performance that places the sedan on a level with the world's fastest sports cars: 4.2 seconds for 0 100 km/h, 12.9 seconds for 0 200 km/h and an electronically limited top speed of 340 km/h are the performance cornerstones of this exclusive high-performance sedan.

Such performance requires optimal lubrication at all times. The engine, custom five-speed transmission and the BRABUS rear-axle locking differential are all operated exclusively with high-
performance lubricants from BRABUS technology partner ARAL.

The immense performance also necessitates the use of special tires: BRABUS technology partner Michelin supplies the exclusive tires for this car: The multi-piece BRABUS Monoblock VI light-alloy
wheels in size 8.5Jx19 on the front axle and 9.5Jx19 in back are mounted with Michelin high-performance tires in size 255/35 ZR 19 in front in combination with size 285/30 ZR 19 on the rear

The air-sprung suspension of the BRABUS E V12 offers a sporty yet comfortable ride. The ride height is lowered by some 20 millimeters compared to the stock car. BRABUS sport sway bars
contribute to the sporty handling with large safety reserves and high ride comfort.

BRABUS equips the new E V12 with a custom high-performance brake system. The system is calibrated to match the electro-hydraulic SBC brake system of the E-Class and consists of 375-mm
ceramic discs and 12-piston aluminum calipers on the front axle and 6-piston calipers and 355-mm vented and cross-drilled steel discs in the rear.

Aerodynamics play an essential role at the extremely high speeds so effortlessly attained by the new BRABUS E V12. That's why BRABUS conducted extensive wind tunnel testing with the E
V12: The BRABUS front bumper with integrated spoiler and additional carbon lip looks absolutely striking. But that's not all it also reduces lift on the front axle thus improving directional stability at
high speeds. Its aerodynamic counterpart in the rear is the custom-developed BRABUS spoiler lip for the trunk lid, which produces downforce at high speeds.

BRABUS side sills give the exclusive sedan a longer, sleeker appearance. They also offer another interesting feature: Pushing a button on the keyless-entry remote or pulling on the door handles
activates entrance lights integrated into the underside of the sills. They illuminate the ground next to the vehicle, making entering an exiting the car safer.

The strikingly styled BRABUS rear apron rounds out the sporty yet elegant body design of the BRABUS E V12 harmoniously.

A special ambiance is found in the cockpit of the BRABUS E V12: The four-door comes equipped with an exclusive BRABUS fully leather interior crafted from a combination of especially soft yet
durable BRABUS Mastik leather and Alcantara.

Genuine-carbon inlays on dashboard, center console and door panels create a sporty feel. In addition the sedan can be equipped with a state-of-the-art BRABUS multimedia package with DVD
player and LCD monitors integrated into the front headrests.
