The Black on Black Beast

One word comes to mind when I look at the Brabus Mercedes 800E… BEAST. Given the fact that Brabus specializes in making ridiculously powerful cars, it should come as no surprise that it recently added the world’s fastest cabriolet to its other records of world’s fastest production sedan and world’s fastest production coupe.

The Brabus 800E V12 starts off as your friendly neighborhood Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet. Then it gets injected with more steroids than the MLB during the 1990s.

Under the hood you’ll find a three-valve Mercedes S600 V12, and it doesn’t stop there. The final product of the engine features a 6.3 liter Biturbo V12 that pushes 788 bhp and 1,047 lb-ft torque at 5,500 rpm.

What does all that mean? 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds, 124 mph in 9.9 seconds, and 186 mph in 23.9 seconds. Top speed? Only 231 mph… We’re talkin’ Formula 1 fast.

All that power would be enough to make even Ricky Bobby soil his drawers. It can all be yours for just $682,000.
