The secret car by Brabus, teased a coupe of weeks ago, turns out to be the new 2012 Mercedes CLS Rocket.
As you may know, the CLS Rocket are insanely powerful versions of the four-door coupe built by the German tuner as a showcase of their engineering excellence. The firs Rocket based on the first gen CLS had around 700 hp and top speed of over 360 km/h.
This new one based on the type C218 CLS is obviously more powerful and faster! Powered by the latest version of Brabus 6.2 liter V12 bi-turbo engine, it makes an incredible 588 kw/800 hp and 1420 Nm of torque. And it can easily crack 370 km/h. 0 to 100 km/h is dealt with in 3.7 seconds. And if you care, it needs 15.7 liters of fuel on average for every 100 km it covers.
As for the body kit, it’s not just as cool as the old Rocket, mainly because of those holes in its face, which were needed to cool down the monster that lives under the bonnet, and that rear spoiler.
Technical specs of the car are yet to be released, but can tell you the new CLS Rocket costs 430,000 Euro. The car will make its public debut at IAA.
