Default Brabus E V12: Bbbbb-aaaad to the Bone

Need George Thorogood to sing behind this baby

I sure wished the Turbo X came in a coupe version

wtf is brabus on sometimes? They make a great looking car and then screw it up with one or two additions. Note the under car leds (can you say "new age neons") and odd two tone flat carbon/gloss black paint. Its like this one they managed to screw up royally....

Wow, that is GORGEOUS.
800hp, over 1000ft-lbs of torque, and only $650K? Sign me up!

Only thing I am surprised about is the color of the interior they chose for that photo-shoot. I love tan interiors in black cars, but if you're going with the all-black look, why not a dark interior? Or something completely abnormal like bright red or orange?

OMG if it wasnt a E-Class i would buy it, not big fans of their cars, but what is this not the Smart Car tuner we are looking at here, where did they go wrong with the Smart Car!!! They should try to stick that V8 in a custom elongated Smart Car that would do some business LMFAO

The E v12 is sweet no doubt, love the exterior styling, 800+HP and 1000+tourque just nasty, Tan interior is acceptable for the price lol

If you can afford this, you can afford to ask them to customize the interior

it's hideous.


that's partially due to the fact that mercedes designers must now be on the same drugs as the japanese are, and i think the effects are spreading quickly. what the hell is going on with auto design these days?

agreed. ive never been a fan of mercedes. my dad had a 2003 CL and the thing was a hunk of junk. The wood paneling was plastic and fell off only a few months after he bought it. The fit and finish just wasnt there, my saab seems better put together compared to it. It was chrysler build quality with a few mercedes emblems.

I agree about Mercedes, only way to get a nice MB is too spend tons and tons of money adn get a full out AMG, then at least time is put into the vehicle.

Overkill, and the stretch would take away the whole point.

both. Although I like the new MB designs, the fact that nothing beyond the C-class (and not even the AMG!!) has even the option of a stick shift. sorry, but unless you can shift for yourself, it's not that bada** IMO.

having said that, if it came with three pedals....sign me up for the sedan with the flat black (but no LEDs/neon)

all of them. mercedes just seems to garish and americanized now. a lot of brands are garish now. toyotas still look like kitchen appliances, though. garish kitchen appliances.
