Brabus found a new home for its volcanic V12 engine, this time in a Mercedes E Cabrio. Top speed, you are eager to know, is 370 km/h (231 mph).

BRABUS 800 V12 Biturbo engine comes with a five-speed automatic transmission because only that is capable of handling 800 hp (788 bhp) / 588 kW at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft), limited electronically in the car to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft). This engine has been around for some time now and you are all familiar with its specs, we don’t repeat them here.

But you should know what that means in terms of performance in a drop-top four-seater. Thanks to a high-performance limited-slip differential with a locking rate of 40 percent, the E V12 can make the best of that colossal power to get from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds. After 9.9 seconds it’s made 200 km/h (124 mph), and after 23.9 seconds 300 km/h.

We don’t like that engine to be honest. There’s too much power, it’s too insane. It’s not usable. But we are a huge fan of Brabus’ aero kit for this car. It looks menacing in black and with those carbon-fiber rear fender flares that add 60mm to its width, the E Cabrio has a magnificent presence. It also comes with an exclusive interior full of red leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber, and a speedometer with 400-km/h (250-mph) dial.

Other features worth mentioning without getting boring include BRABUS coil-over suspension calibrated to the higher engine weight, Brake system with 380 x 37 millimeter (15.0 x 1.45 in.), vented and grooved steel brake discs and 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers (6 at the back), 9.5Jx19 wheels mounted with size 265/30 ZR 19 tires at front and 295/30 ZR 19 at the back.

It is a highly desirable car indeed, but it’s insane price tag of EUR 478,000 will drives most people of away. Half a million euro for a Mercedes E Class!!! They also make a coupe version if you don’t like the wind in you hair.
