With 730 hp / 537 kW at 5,100 rpm the Brabus S V12 S Biturbo engine delivers superlative power. The same is true for its peak torque of 1,320 Nm at 2,100 rpm. In the car peak torque is limited electronically to 1,100 Nm.
This extraordinary performance makes the Brabus S V12 S Biturbo into not just the most powerful but also the fastest luxury sedan in the world: 0 – 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, 200 km/h after just 11.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 340 km/h.
Power is transferred to the real wheels via a modified five-speed automatic transmission. An optional Brabus locking differential optimizes traction. All Brabus powertrain components are operated exclusively with ARAL high-performance lubricants.
Brabus also offers performance tuning for the S 600 and S 65 models. The list ranges from the T12 performance kit for 580 hp / 419 kW to the T 65 S performance tuning that boosts power output of the S 65 model to 715 hp / 526 kW.The enormous performance of the Brabus S V12 S Biturbo place especially high demands on the vehicle's aerodynamic properties. The Brabus designers used the wind tunnel to develop a special front apron whose refined shape reduces lift on the front axle. Its large central air inlet optimizes cooling of engine and front brakes.
