Essen 2012: Brabus Mercedes C-Coupe 800 Bullit [Video]
This is one such car, the Brabus Mercedes C-Coupe 800 Bullit. The body of the car might make you thing this is a tuned C63 AMG, but it’s really not. That’s because they took one of the coolest engines in the world and replaced it with something even cooler, a V12 Biturbo with 800 hp and 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft) of torque which help propel it to over 370 km/h (230 mph).
The engine was pulled out of the Mercedes S-Class but they didn’t just leave it at that, at it’s been increased in capacity to 6.3 liters with a sports rankshaft with longer stroke, larger, forged pistons and an increase in cylinder bore.
Although it sounds like a concept, the Brabus Bullet is a very real car that you can buy for €449,820 in Germany, which is about $600,000. That’s a lot of money, but it’s much cooler than a Juke-R in our opinion.
