Brabus has been building the world's fastest street-legal sedans for many years. This tradition started in 1996 with the Brabus E V12 that had a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph), and continued in 2003 with the E V12 Biturbo that reached 350.2 km/h (217.6 mph). In 2006 the Brabus Rocket, built in small-series production based on the first edition of the Mercedes CLS, improved the world record to 365.7 km/h (222.7 mph). The Brabus E V12 "one of ten" based on the latest E-Class, pushed the record to 370 km/h (230 mph).
The world debut of the new Brabus Rocket 800 from Brabus at the 2011 IAA in Frankfurt/Main now continues this unique success story. The high-performance automobile based on the new Mercedes CLS generation is powered by a Brabus 800 V12 Biturbo engine that produces 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW of power and a peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft), which in the car is limited to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft). The exclusively appointed Brabus Rocket 800, built to order starting at EUR 429,000, reaches a top speed in excess of 370 km/h (230 mph) and accelerates from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 23.8 seconds.
Like its predecessors the new Brabus Rocket 800 is also powered by a 12-cylinder high-capacity engine that was converted to 800 V12 Biturbo specifications in the Brabus engine-building shop. Using state-of-the-art machining processes and with utmost precision in every last detail the engine, based on the latest Mercedes 600 engines, underwent a displacement increase from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 384 cu. in.).
The displacement increase comprises a special crankshaft with longer stroke, larger, forged pistons and an increase in cylinder bore across the board. Intake and outlet ports of both cylinder heads are optimized for mixture flow, and fitted with sports camshafts.
The intake side was also completely reworked: the hood of the Rocket 800 features a carbon-fiber ram-air intake system that gets its combustion air through slits in the Brabus front element.
Another custom development is the Brabus 800 Biturbo system. It comprises two special Exhaust manifolds with integrated high-performance turbochargers, and four water-to-air Intercoolers. The stainless-steel high-performance Exhaust system with free-flow metal catalysts and butterfly valve was also created specifically for the CLS floorpan.
Just as elaborate was the implantation of the V12 engine and all its peripherals into the modified engine bay of the sedan. Numerous components such as the engine mounts had to be custom designed.
Another engineering masterpiece of the Brabus engineers is the newly configured on-board electronics system. It includes newly programmed engine mapping that contributes equally to achieving maximum power yield and to meeting the current EURO V emission standards. Just as important is the adaption to the driving dynamics systems such as traction control, ESP, ABS and Brake Assist.
The Brabus 800 V12 Biturbo engine is lubricated with high-tech motor oil from technology partner ARAL and produces 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at 5,500 rpm. The even more enormous peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft), available from a low 2,100 rpm, is limited electronically in the car to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
For the first time the Brabus engine specialists combine this high-end engine with a seven-speed quick-shift gearbox. Gears are shifted by means of shift paddles on the steering wheel or automatically. The Brabus limited-slip differential, available with various final drive ratios, optimizes traction of the rear-wheel-drive car.
The Brabus 800 V12 Biturbo engine and the entire powertrain are operated with high-performance lubricants from technology partner ARAL.
With the longest available final-drive ratio the Brabus Rocket 800 reaches a top speed of more than 370 km/h (230 mph), making it the world's fastest street-legal sedan. But this exclusive high-performance automobile is tops in other areas as well: 0 - 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, 0 - 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.8 seconds and 0 - 300 km/h (186 mph) in 23.8 seconds are figures that are as unique as this Brabus automobile itself.
To keep the enormous performance of the world's fastest sedan safely in check at all times, the vehicle's aerodynamic properties, suspension and brakes were modified extensively.

2013 SRT Viper vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series! - Head 2 Head Ep. 36
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits two
members of the "more than 600 horsepower club" against
each other - the 2013 SRT Viper & the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black
Series. It's a three-bout heavyweight match that begins with real world
canyon carving, moves on to an all-out quarter mile drag race, and then
finishes with blistering hot laps around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with hot
shoe Randy Pobst.
Despite a huge gap in price, both of these long-nosed, front-engine, RWD,
two-seat brawlers represent significant revisions of their wild
predecessors. Will good old fashion American muscle beat out German
Engineering? Join us as we find out.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

EXCLUSIVE: Brabus 850 Rocket CLS - Startup and Revs - IAA 2013
Brabus have launched their 850 version of the CLS Rocket, descried as "The
World's most powerful street-legal all-wheel-drive weapon". Shmee150 has
this exclusive footage from behind the scenes including hearing quite how
this monster sounds!
The 850 has a twin-turbo V8 enlarged
from the standard 5.5l to 5.9l producing 850hp with a limited 1,150Nm of
torque. 0-100km/h is listed at just 3.1 seconds with a top speed of: very,
very, very, very fast having been limited at 350km/h or 217mph.
The Brabus 850 CLS takes the 800 "Rocket" up one notch further in the
numbers game, and the sound it makes just feels immense even at low revs.
Thanks for watching, Tim
