You know, if I hadn't kept my mouth shut until I actually climbed into the interior, this Brabus E V12 test drive would have probably went a little something like this: "Hideous color and ugly wheels. How could I ever drive such a repulsive automobile?". Well, you have to appreciate the fact that I didn't do that. And blessed are those who wait.
Apparently, this car's interior was designed by someone which actually had taste in choosing colors and materials and someone who was probably a cheerful and classy person, unlike the guy (or gal) who covered the exterior. That person was probably as gloomy as a combination between Ebenezer Scrooge and Freddy Krueger.
Yeah, I'm not very fond of horror or very dramatic movies and/or books. Not a fan of horror-inspired cars either. And this Brabus E V12 is exactly that, at least in the exterior looks department. It's not exactly like Batman's car, but it would probably pass as Bruce Wayne's personal cab or something if he wanted a car a bit less inconspicuous but even more evil-looking than that Lamborghini Murcielago he drove in the last movie.
Anyway, getting back to the interior, that is probably one of the classiest ones I've ever been into. Nice, soft leather, comfortable seats that seem to hug you into place, a center console that looks like it's been adorned with alien wood (as I've learned, it's actually painted carbon fiber), and so on. What more would a classy lady like myself want? A throttle pedal with foot massage maybe, but that's a different story.
So, the interior is all classy and cozy, while the exterior is very close to atrocious. What about the performance, is it as fast as they say? Well, let's just say that I thank every higher power which made me show up with five-inch stilettos before driving this car. Otherwise I might have launched it into stratosphere just a mere second after smashing the accelerator pedal. Yes, it seemed that fast. Especially after I saw how slow all the cars around me were on the German Autobahn.
