Brabus 850 Shooting Brake 6.0 Biturbo 4Matic [Live Photos]
Those rather unbelievable times have been completely obliterated by the pompously-named Brabus 850 Shooting Brake 6.0 Biturbo 4Matic, which can reach the aforementioned speed from a stand still in a fantastic 3.1 seconds.
Considering the car weighs about 25% more than a similarly quick Nissan GT-R, which is not exactly featherweight to begin with, the most powerful CLS 63 AMG Shooting Brake pumped by Brabus in the world is also the fastest accelerating street-legal station wagon on the planet.
All this is possible mainly thanks to the 5.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 sitting nicely under that vented hood, which was taken straight from the Brabus Rocket.
The maximum horsepower has been increased by Brabus engineers to 850 hp, while the torque is electronically limited to a massive 1150 Nm (848 lb ft). The full torque would sit at a staggering 1450 Nm (1069 lb ft), but there probably isn't enough steel around Bottrop's steel mills to upgrade the seven speed MCT transmission to handle it.
