BRABUS SHadow 500 
Black Ops Limited Edition '1 Of 28'

With 50 knots+ performance waiting to be unleashed, phenomenal acceleration times and massive torque available from Mercury Marine’s latest XS Pro V8 FourStroke engines - who could not be tempted by the BRABUS Shadow 500? Positioned at the very top of the 30ft sports-weekender market, The BRABUS Shadow 500 is a beautifully designed and captivating ‘thrill-seeker’; on one hand a boat with mesmerizing performance, yet with comfortable, day-long cruising capability and luxurious refinement on the other.

The BRABUS Shadow 500 Black Ops ‘1 of 28’ is hand-built with focus on precision and finish.

All Limited-Edition models are exclusively launched in the signature paint scheme Gunmetal Gray, combined with vibrant BRABUS Red exterior seating; a most striking combination.
