How would you like to own a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet that can smoke even the most powerful of exotics in the world? It sounds like we’re reaching considering that the car doesn’t really belong in the same exotic landscape as those devil-may-care machines. But once you see what German tuning company, Brabus, has cooked up, you’re going to have to pick your jaws up off the floor. Don’t feel too bad, though, because we just picked ours up too.
This is the Brabus 800 E V12 Cabriolet and it really does defy all kinds of reasonable explanation. It’s based on the E-Class Cabriolet and it’s got enough power to shame even some of the most powerful supercars on the planet. Of course, all that is owed to the 800-horsepower engine under its hood, which really is beyond comprehension when you think about it. It’s an E-Class, people! Make no mistake; the E-Class has some serious juice in it, but 800 horsepower?
We’re starting to be at a loss for words so it’s probably best to find out more about it after the jump.
