2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class-based BRABUS BULLIT

BRABUS BULLIT: the fastest C-Class on the road

The German tuning specialist has just introduced its new BRABUS BULLIT super-sedan. As usual, the coach builder offers not a single enhancement, but a comprehensive list of updates that include the car’s powertrain, body kit, as well as active safety sub-system. Oh! And there is also the customary set of bluish LED lights under the plastic side skirts!

Based on the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the car is equipped with BRABUS’ own V12 Biturbo engine, capable of producing up to 720hp and 1100 Nm of torque and accelerating from zero to 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. In terms of pricing, too.

The thoroughly reworked SV12 S Biturbo engine we’ve already seen on the BRABUS ROCKET four-door coupe is so powerful, it takes only 10.49 seconds to jump from zero to 124 mph and to reach the mind-numbing speed of 224 mph (361 km/h).

Speeding like a small plane, the car definitely needs its new suspension, performance brakes, as well as new aerodynamics kit with reshaped front and rear aprons, front and rear spoilers, a new aluminum hood, rocker panels and fender flares.

All these enhancements come at a price, though.

BRABUS plans to charge at least €348,000 for the BULLIT.
