Brabus released further details of the new 2012 Mercedes CLS Rocket 800 that we showed you yesterday.

So as you know the car is powered by the latest version of Brabus 6.2 liter bi-turbo V12 which this time makes 800 hp (588 kW) and 1,420 Nm (1,047 lb-ft) of torque. That in plain English means 0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, and top speed of 370 km/h or 230 mph.

What’s interesting, this time Brabus has used the seven-speed quick-shift transmission and not the usual five-speed ‘box.

To stop this monster Brabus has fitted a a dual circuit brake system featuring 12 piston aluminium calipers with 380 x 37 mm discs at front and 6 piston caliper with 360 x 28 mm discs at the back.

As for the wheels, the new Rocket features one-piece Monoblock F rims wrapped in YOKOHAMA ADVAN Sport high-performance tires size 255/35 ZR 19 front and 285/30 ZR 19 rear.

As mentioned before, the Rocket 800 averages 15.7 litre per 100 Km and emits CO2 in big lumps, nearly 400 g/km. And it costs a cool 430,000 euros.

Enjoy the pictures…
