Brabus always care about big power before anything else, but this time they’ve also put a bit of effort into making the cockpit of the car more luxurious. But this being Brabus, they’ve overdone it as usual. They’ve come up with the Mercedes S600 iBusiness which is monstrously fast, and equipped like business-class aircrafts!
The main feature of the iBusiness is the complete Apple integration. It comes with an ultra-small Mac minicomputer safely housed under the rear shelf in an electrically deployed drawer whose design mirrors the design of the computer itself.
A 15.2-inch TFT display with 16:9 aspect ratio is integrated into the headliner covered with the finest Alcantara and contrasted with leather. Together with the standard screens in the back of the front headrests it serves as a display for the multimedia system. USB 2.0 ports integrated into the rear compartment allow connecting various peripherals to the Mac such as a webcam for video conferencing or a digital camera. The “iBusiness” is connected to the Internet via UMTS and HSDPA.
The entire BRABUS multimedia system is controlled from the passenger seat or the rear compartment by two iPads that also control the car’s standard COMAND system with all functions such as radio, navigation system and telephone. There’s even two tablet computers and the Bluetooth keyboard to take care of your multimedia needs while on the move. The music comes from a 64GB Apple iPod touch that can store more than 14,000 songs.
You tablets and keyboard will rest in specially made storage areas when you don’t need them, and will be placed on very exquisite and foldable and adjustable tables covered with the same exclusive leather as the entire interior and are bordered by high-gloss aluminum frames.
That’s all great, but we’re not businessmen so we like the performance more than luxury! The S600 iBusiness is powered by a 750 hp (740 bhp) / 552 kW at 5,500 rpm which also produces an incredible ,350 Nm (995 lb-ft) at 2,100 rpm which had to be limited to 1100 Nm. The car does 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.9 seconds, and has a limited top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). So it definitely goes like a plane as well!
On the outside the BRABUS “iBusiness” is clad in a sporty yet elegant designer suit. The BRABUS designers went into the wind tunnel to develop a striking front fascia whose sophisticated shape reduces lift on the front axle. The large center air inlet further optimizes cooling of the engine and the front brakes. Integrated auxiliary headlights and LED daytime running lights increase the safety factor.
As for the rims, Brabus offers 9Jx21 wheels on the front axle and size 10.5Jx21 in back. Customers can choose from four different designs Three-piece forged and high-gloss polished BRABUS Monoblock VI wheels with six double spokes, Monoblock E multi-spoke wheels, the Monoblock S double-spoke design and the especially exclusive Monoblock F PLATINUM EDITION forged wheels with cross-spoke design. All versions are fitted with Pirelli or YOKOHAMA tires in size 265/30 ZR 21 in front and in size 295/30 ZR 21 on the rear axle.
