DESIGN & APPEARANCE. Where sportiness becomes luxury.

Packed with the latest technology available in the industry, the BRABUS Shadow 1000 is equipped with twin Mercury V8 500R racing engines, delivering a total of 1,000 horsepower ready to be unleashed right at your fingertips. Never has a BRABUS Shadow been this powerful, offering even more boost, more torque, more responsive steering, and higher revs. Trimmed to perfection and running 4.6-liter V8 powerheads with superchargers, the new 500R is Mercury Racing’s flagship outboard motor, boasting a benchmark power-to-weight ratio, 10 percent higher torque, and a 26 percent increase in supercharger boost pressure.

Everything on the boat’s clean and ergonomic dashboard is within reach. But that’s not all. Fingertip controls, backlit switches, touchscreen technology as well as the multifunctional steering wheel make this one of the most futuristic consoles.

Furthermore, the dashboard features a full HD Simrad dual touch ‘Glass Helm Information Display' for maximum on-screen detail and unprecedented levels of built-in functionality. An updated BRABUS User-Interface, including a digital version of the Panerai timepiece, G-shock monitoring, navigation controls, engine management, on board entertainment and driving-assist features allows Shadow 900 drivers to take total control of their on-water experiences. Owners that opt for the Extended Navigation package can benefit from an even larger array of functions, including two additional 9” screens, on-board connectivity and 4G mobile WiFi router, VHF unit with AIS receiver, a Halo20+ radar, 5" touch display with digital light switching for the front lounge and a BRABUS lock box.
