FIRST STEPS

To make ends meet after World War II, Willi Buschmann started a small business selling coal from a horse wagon. Eventually, he expanded his ambitions and began to buy and sell cars from all facets of a then developing industry. After a while, he decided to specialize in the sale of Mercedes-Benz vehicles exclusively.

1960
A FAMILY BUSINESS

Over the years, Willi Buschmann’s company grew into a local family business. He bought and sold cars, his wife Rosemarie sold insurance and later opened up a gas station. From a very early age, their son, Bodo, would help out where he could and gain his first hands on experience in trading and entrepreneurship.

1975
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

Bodo Buschmann loved cars. As a young man, he took a particular liking to the sportiness and the unmistakable performance of one particular iconic German name in the industry. Mercedes-Benz. A true petrol head at heart, Bodo would stop at nothing to one day turn his passion into a profession. 

AUTO BUSCHMANN

Together with his parents, Bodo Buschmann worked at Auto Buschmann KG., gaining valuable sales experience and learning more about the automotive industry with each passing day. Parallel to his work, he studied law and business administration but soon abandoned his academic plans in order to establish his own company.

1977
THE FOUNDING OF BRABUS

Early on, Bodo Buschmann saw the potential for a market to be filled. He believed that more could be done to make Mercedes-Benz even sportier, more powerful and most importantly, more individual and thus more appealing to a broader range of customers. With no other company in the industry offering anything close to what he envisioned, he took it upon himself and founded BRABUS in the spring of 1977 with his long-time friend and colleague, Klaus Brackmann.

1980S

With his sights and ambitions set high, in the 1980s, Bodo Buschmann officially opened the doors to his business. Not long thereafter, the world’s very first BRABUS vehicles hit the roads through the help of a strong team of experts.

1982
FIRST STEPS IN MULTIMEDIA

In the early 1980s, BRABUS pioneered the installation of high-end component audio, Cat B and C mobile telephones, VHS video and TV screens in models from the 190E to the G-Class, with innovations including powered curtains in the rear of the larger, more luxurious models. BRABUS even outfitted customized conference buses equipped with tables and entertainment systems.

1983
OPEN FOR BUSINESS

After leaving his family’s business and founding BRABUS in 1977, Bodo Buschmann was bound and determined to find a home for his company. By the summer of 1983, BRABUS was officially operating out of its very first HQ and the young entrepreneur’s vision was beginning to take shape. From BRABUS typical performance, interior and entertainment enhancements, his young company would begin its journey by offering its unique products and services to a developing market, laying the foundation of where BRABUS as a brand stands today.

BRABUS 190E V8

Originally conceptualized for a four-cylinder engine configuration, Bodo Buschmann used the iconic Mercedes-Benz 190E as the basis for his very first V8 drivetrain conversion, significantly surpassing the factory V6 upgrade projected to not become available for the facelift model until 1986 in typical BRABUS fashion. A significant number of changes were made to the 190E’s front subframe and inner wings to accommodate the 4,973cc V8 (M117) motor from the W126 500SE/L. Our team of early BRABUS engineers ported and polished the cylinder heads, and optimized other parameters to extract a 250 hp output. The rear axle, suspension and brakes were likewise extensively modified to cope with the extra weight, resulting in a sensational power-to-weight ratio which gave the automatic BRABUS 190E 5.0 V8 a consistent 6 second 0 – 100 km/h time as well as a top speed of 250km/h.

GETTING NOTICED

Not long after BRABUS burst onto the scene, ready and eager to make its mark, the young company would start gaining international traction. One after the other, BRABUS would attract clients from around the globe, laying the foundation of what would become a vast network of international customers.

1985
BRABUS E, RECORD BREAKER

Aero-efficiency revolutionized. After modifying the original Mercedes-Benz W124 E-Class with an all-encompassing BRABUS exterior concept, the team headed for the wind tunnel to properly put the design as well as its new and improved airflow to the test. What rolled into the facility as a passion project aimed at redefining the limits like never before rolled out a Guinness world record breaker – having scored a Drag Coefficient (Cd) value of 0.26, a number that would inspire countless BRABUS vehicles for decades to come. 

BUILDING A COMPANY

By 1985, construction of the brand new BRABUS headquarters was well underway and Bodo Buschmann’s vision was becoming reality. Like for the cars he set out to build, the BRABUS founder had great expectations for his company’s permanent home – constantly pushing the boundaries to befit his high-minded ambitions.

FIRST APPEARANCES AT CAR SHOWS

As early as 1985, legendary BRABUS vehicles based on the Mercedes-Benz model series W123, W126 and W201 would be spotted at some of the world’s most significant international car shows. 

1986
A NEW BEGINNING

Commissioned in 1986, BRABUS found its home with the completion of its brand new headquarters, making the brand stronger than ever. True to the family business’ deeply established roots, the new building was situated in Bottrop, Germany. The heart of Germany’s Ruhr-Region, not far from where it all began.

1987
VDAT

Originally called „Verband der Deutschen Automobil Tuner“, or Association of German Tuners, the VDAT evolved into an international organization known as the „Verband der Automobil Tuner“. The VDAT e.V. was founded in Waiblingen in 1987, and BRABUS under Bodo Buschmann was a member from the very beginning, serving as a board member. The organization as well as its members stand for high quality and safe tuning products. VDAT e.V. also publicly advocates safe tuning products and points out unsafe products when necessary.

1989
BRABUS 190E 3.6S

Untamed, uncatchable, ahead of its time. The BRABUS 3.6S. Its party piece - 272 hp at 365 Nm of torque courtesy of its namesake naturally aspirated 3.6-liter straight six engine. However, a decisive figure was without a doubt its weight. Clocking in at only 1342 kg, this vintage sports car was stripped down to its absolute minimum weight all around the chassis and in the cabin where the heavy standard seats were replaced by a pair of ultra-light Kevlar backed Recaro race seats. With increased power and a significant weight reduction, the 3.6S could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, with a top speed of 256 km/h.

THE NEXT GENERATION

From an early age, Bodo Buschmann’s son, Constantin was introduced to life at the family business like his father before him. What started in the late 80’s as the first steps between the current and new generation would, over the years, become an undeniable synergy and colleagueship between father and son.

1990S

By the 1990s, the company was expanding rapidly and BRABUS had become a household name. With the world, the industry and its technology slowly becoming more and more advanced, Bodo Buschmann knew there was only one way forward. Bigger and better.

1990
BRABUS 6.9 V12

For Bodo Buschmann, the beginning of a new decade, above all, meant new horizons, new possibilities and new ways to challenge the standards of the industry. His primary focus was simple, yet characteristically ambitious – to get as much power out of every individual BRABUS project as physically possible. Enter, the BRABUS 6.9, based on the Mercedes-Benz 600 SL. Fitted with its namesake 6.9-liter V12 engine producing 509 hp and 705 Nm of torque, this pioneer among extensively modified sports cars could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds at a top speed of 304 km/h. An impressive achievement at the time and a benchmark for a wide range of BRABUS products to follow in the years to come.

1992
BRABUS BUSINESS VERSION

In the early 1990’s, under the leadership of Chief Technology Officer, Mr. Ulrich Gauffrés, our team of engineering specialists began development of the very first BRABUS twelve-cylinder conversions. Soon thereafter, cars like the BRABUS 7.3S Business Version of the Mercedes-Benz S 600 explored, for the first time, the combination of sportscar performance and uncompromising interior luxury that continues to define our products to this day. Its beating heart – a 7.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine guaranteeing 582 hp and 772 Nm of torque as well as a 0 – 100 km/h time of just 4.5 seconds at an incredible top speed of 310 km/h. Inside, our team of interior design specialists fitted the elongated chassis with pure fully brabusized business luxury, defined by a wide range of features as well as maximum comfort.

1993
THE WORLD'S FASTEST SALOON

In the spring of 1993, production on what would become one of the most iconic projects of our history was well underway: The first BRABUS E V12, based on the Mercedes-Benz 500 E. In what many at the time considered to be an inevitable move, our team of BRABUS engineers fitted a massive 6.9-liter V12 engine to the base frame, raising the car’s power output to 509 hp with a peak torque of 710 Nm at 3,700 rpm. The E V12 could sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds – a feat, which would not only far exceed existing performance saloon numbers, but which would mark the beginning of a new trend in our development and design language. A trend, defined by unassuming cars hiding unbelievable power. Which is why we like to call it: The wolf in sheep’s clothing.

1995
BRABUS 7.3S ROADSTER

In the mid 1990’s, the Mercedes-Benz 600 SL was one of the most sought-after roadsters money could buy – but we sought to push its boundaries further. Enter the BRABUS 7.3S. The goal: To fit a 7.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine producing 582 hp and 772 Nm of torque. The result? A 0 – 100 km/h time of 4.6 seconds and a blistering top speed of 308 km/h. Some would consider a 250 km/h Autobahn run with the top down a challenge, but in the eyes of Bodo Buschmann, it was perhaps the best and most unadulterated way to truly experience the power of this next-level two-seater.

BRABUS C V8

The next project to follow our newly found trend of understated high-performance would come in 1993 with the BRABUS C V8, based on the Mercedes-Benz W203 C-Class. Powered by a 5.8-liter V8 engine producing 400 hp and 579 Nm of torque, the C V8 accelerated from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, all the way to an impressive top speed of 294 km/h. This made it the fastest C-Class available at the time and an absolute pocket rocket, offering a unique driving experience with a BRABUS typical feel-good-factor.

BRABUS E V12 + WORLD RECORD

By early 1995, the successor model of the first generation BRABUS E V12 was gearing up to hit the road and as usual, the focus was set on raising the bar significantly. Based once again on the Mercedes-Benz 500 E, the car featured a massive 7.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine producing 582 hp and 772 Nm of torque. From rest, the E V12 could accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds at a blistering top speed of 330 km/h, which was limited only by the fact that no tires available at the time could support such a heavy car at such speeds. But for those who were willing to explore the farthest reaches of the speedometer, flying past the 200 km/h mark was a matter of just 16 seconds. That same year, the E V12 broke the world record for fastest street legal saloon, securing its place in the BRABUS history books.

1997
BRABUS T V12 + WORLD RECORD

The year is 1997. As the decade is slowly but surely moving towards its conclusion, a black Mercedes-Benz S 210 E-Class station wagon is spotted on the A31 near Bottrop, looking to leave its mark on the motoring world. It’s the BRABUS T V12, equipped with the same 7.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine as its E V12 counterpart, producing a peak output of 582 hp and 772 Nm of torque. Even with its long axle ratio, the T V12 could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds at an incredible top speed of 320 km/h – catapulting it all the way into the Guinness World Record of fastest street legal station wagon in the world.

1998
BRABUS M V12 + WORLD RECORD 

The Mercedes-Benz W 163 M-Class was released in Europe in 1998 after what had been a more than successful release on the US market one year prior. However, instead of the V8 engine configuration fitted specifically to enter the booming market for SUVs and Pick-Ups in the states, the European version was fitted with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine producing 150 hp. Immediately seeing the potential of this unique base model, our engineering team under Uli Gauffrés, installed a 7.3-liter V12 producing 582 hp and 772 Nm of fully brabusized torque. From rest, the M V12 weighing 2.1 tons could accelerate to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds at an electronically limited top speed of 260 km/h, earning it the title of fastest street legal SUV in the world in the summer of 1998.

THE FIRST BRABUS FLAGSHIP STORE OPENS IN L.A.

To meet the exceedingly high demand of the North American market, the first official BRABUS Flagship store opened stateside in 1998 in Newport Beach, California – complete with a dedicated sales team, a state-of-the-art workshop, parts warehouse, training center and its very own showroom offering a wide range of BRABUS products.

BRABUS SB 1

One of the key characteristics that defined Bodo Buschmann both as a person and an entrepreneur was his keen eye for potential. And when smart launched their new two-seater city-coupe in 1998, his sights were set immediately. Not long thereafter, the very first BRABUS individualization program for the smart fortwo 450 was available for owners, featuring a range of visual enhancements as well as a BRABUS typical performance increase, raising the power output of the turbocharged three-cylinder engine to 70 hp and 100 Nm of torque. The unique and vibrant flair of the BRABUS SB 1 did not go unnoticed around the industry, eventually catching the attention of Daimler and establishing the foundation of one of our most longstanding and most successful partnerships to date.

BRABUS SLK V8

When the original R 170 Mercedes-Benz SLK made its debut in 1996, the most powerful model on the market was the SLK 230 Kompressor, powered by a supercharged four-cylinder engine. Its base output of 193 hp and 280 Nm of torque was certainly more than adequate for relaxing drives along curved country roads, but as usual, Bodo Buschmann had greater plans for this agile little roadster. Naturally, the original idea was to fit a V12, but begrudgingly the team had to face facts and accept that for this particular project, an engine of such size would simply be impossible due to space constraints. So, it was a heavily modified 6.5-liter V8 that ultimately found its way into the engine bay. Producing 450 hp and 662 Nm of torque, the BRABUS SLK V8 could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds at a top speed of 285 km/h.

1999
NEW BRABUS HEADQUARTERS

With the focus placed on entering the new decade bigger and stronger than ever before, the official expansion of the BRABUS headquarters was commissioned in 1999. What began as a workshop, a showroom and his company’s first office spaces turned into the realization of Bodo Buschmann’s final vision – a dedicated complex sheltering all facets of the world of BRABUS, including modern production, storage and various high-tech testing facilities purpose-built to take his products to the next-level.

2000S

The beginning of the new millennium marked the beginning of a new era of BRABUS high-performance, with the early 2000s seeing the realization of some the most ambitious, most powerful and most significant BRABUS projects to date.

2001
BRABUS C V8 Sportcoupé

The Mercedes-Benz C203 C-Class was among the first model series Bodo Buschmann and the BRABUS team placed their focus on as they found themselves at the beginning of a new century. Designated the BRABUS C V8 Sport Coupe, it was a conversion characterized above all else by a classic BRABUS vision of high-performance. Fitted with a 6.1-liter V8 engine producing 313 kW / 426 hp and 621 Nm of torque, it could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds at a top speed of 301 km/h. Hand-built to order, the BRABUS C V8 Sport Coupe was a niche market car that delivered a convincing four-seat hatchback answer for those with supercar aspirations that conflicted with their practical requirements.

2002
Smart BRABUS First Edition 

2002 was the most significant year for BRABUS products based on the smart platform – defined by the official founding of the smart BRABUS company as well as some its earliest success stories, such as the smart BRABUS First Edition. Producing 52 kW / 70 hp and 199 Nm of torque, this compact city-car based on the smart ForTwo 450 had a top speed of 135 km/h. 

Tuning Guarantee

The BRABUS Tuning Guarantee was called to life in 2002 as an unimpeachable seal of trust in our products and services. Conceptualized to be a benchmark of the automotive tuning industry at the time, this guarantee would cover BRABUS conversions in their entirety within the first three years or 100,000 km of their lifespan. Here at BRABUS, we believe in our products with our name and continue to uphold the BRABUS Tuning Guarantee unequivocally for all of our customers to this day. 

Werk 2 & founding of smart BRABUS

Smart BRABUS was officially founded in the early summer of 2002 as a 50/50 joint venture with Bodo Buschmann as its acting CEO. From its home in Werk 2 here at the BRABUS headquarters in Bottrop, Germany, the company has been leading the development and manufacture of all smart BRABUS vehicles, including their respective accessories and tuning programs ever since. Today, Werk 2 also houses the BRABUS model production, the business vehicle assembly, a second rolling road dyno as well as three static engine dynos. Other facilities include sizable meeting rooms, a show and event hall and a fully equipped photo studio.

2003
BRABUS C V8S

In 2003, the 6.1-liter V8 engine of the BRABUS C V8 Sport Coupe received its most powerful upgrade. Fitted this time within the engine bay of the Mercedes-AMG CLK 55, the BRABUS C V8S produced 327 kW / 445 hp and 635 Nm of torque. From rest, this fully brabusized sports-cruiser could fly past the 100 km/h mark in 4.5 seconds at a top speed of 305 km/h.

BRABUS CLK K8 

The most powerful early 2000s BRABUS conversion based on the Mercedes-Benz C-Class came in the form of the BRABUS CLK K8, a performance-homage to the previously released BRABUS C V8 and C V8s models. Equipped with a 5.5-liter supercharged V8 producing 405 kW / 550 hp and 780 Nm of torque, the CLK K8 could sprint from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds at a top speed of 325 km/h.

BRABUS E V12 + Record

The BRABUS E V12 designation remains one of the most iconic and, above all else, most powerful in our brand’s history to this day. In 2003, production of its long-awaited third generation had finally been completed. Based on the Mercedes-Benz W211 E-Class, the E V12 once again combined understated looks with power that was simply incredible at the time – fitted with a 6.2-liter twin-turbo V12 producing 471 kW / 640 hp and 1,026 Nm of torque. From rest, this fully brabusized limousine could sprint to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds. In the summer of 2005, it claimed the world-record of world’s fastest limousine after reaching a blistering top speed of over 350 km/h at the Nardo Speed Track in Italy, a title then previously held by its 1995 predecessor based on the Mercedes-Benz W210 E-Class.

BRABUS FOR MAYBACH

The exclusive BRABUS individualization program for the 2004 Mercedes-Maybach 57S and 62S models was a first glimpse into the vast spectrum of possibilities that defines BRABUS Masterpiece luxury today. Designed to combine the worlds of confident BRABUS performance and maximum comfort in style, its highlight feature was a complete BRABUS interior characterized by uncompromising elegance, expert attention to detail and over 1.2 kilometers of stitching. For those who sought to experience the road at its best, the limousine’s performance output was raised to 471 kW / 640 hp and 1,026 Nm of torque produced courtesy of a 6.3-liter twin turbocharged V12 – making it the perfect choice for businessmen and automotive enthusiasts alike.

2004
BRABUS G V12

The very first BRABUS V12 conversion based on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class was first spotted on the roads of Bottrop, Germany in 2004. Revealed on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class’ 25th anniversary, the BRABUS G V12 was the only V12 powered Geländewagen in the world. Equipped with a heavily modified 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged S V12 increased-displacement engine producing 449 kW / 610 hp, it could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in a mere 5.3 seconds. An incredible feat of engineering at the time. Its top speed was electronically limited to 230 km/h. The first generation BRABUS G V12 was also equipped with a BRABUS typical exterior concept, improved suspension, a high-performance sports exhaust system, BRABUS Monoblock wheels as well as a complete BRABUS interior.

BRABUS Ultimate 101

At the 2004 Essen Motor Show, visitors to the BRABUS booth for the first time got to experience the true face of striking, smart BRABUS typical individualization. The BRABUS Ultimate 101. Based on the smart ForTwo 450, this compact city-car accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in 11.2 seconds courtesy of its three-cylinder engine producing 74 kW / 101 hp and 130 Nm of Torque at a top speed of 160 km/h. Even with its wheelbase not spanning past 2.5 meters, the Ultimate 101 captured anyone’s attention from miles away. Rounded off by a coat of bright red paintwork, the car featured reimagined bodywork, a complete BRABUS interior, improved suspension as well as 17/16-inch BRABUS Monoblock wheels.

BRABUS Viano V8 

Since 1977, our team of BRABUS engineers has taken pride in never shying away from a challenge and in late 2004, placed their sights on the Mercedes-Benz W639 Viano as the target of their next V8 conversion. Now producing 313 kW / 426 hp and 621 Nm of torque, the BRABUS Viano V8 could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds at a top speed of 245 km/h courtesy of its extensively modified 6.1-liter increased-displacement engine. Naturally, the performance-van as also equipped with our signature aerodynamic-enhancement concept, a complete BRABUS interior, 18” BRABUS Monoblock wheels and a brand-new sports exhaust system.

2005
BRABUS ROCKET CLS + REKORD

In the summer of 2005, a then never before seen icon among BRABUS supercars was revealed to the world for the very first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show: The first generation BRABUS Rocket. Based on the Mercedes-Benz C219 CLS, the Rocket was powered by a 6.3-liter twin turbocharged S-Spec V12 engine producing 537 kW / 730 hp and 1,100 Nm of Torque. In concert with a purpose-built BRABUS aerodynamic enhancement concept, this hypnotizingly powerful supercar could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. It was officially recognized as the world’s fastest saloon in 2006 after reaching a top speed of 365.7 km/h at the Nardo speed track – cementing its place in the BRABUS history books. Today, the BRABUS Rocket legacy continues to expand; inspired by the benchmark set by its first generation.

BRABUS K8S Roadster

Designed as a highly exclusive, one-off BRABUS supercar based on the 2007 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, the BRABUS K8S Roadster was the result of pure elegance clashing with breathtaking performance. Under the hood, Ulrich Gauffrés and his team increased the power of its 5.5-liter supercharged V8 engine to a final output of 529 kW / 720 hp and 820 Nm of torque. From a standstill, the K8S Roadster could accelerate past the 100 km/h mark in just 3.4 seconds at an impressive top speed of 342 km/h. Not long after completing production, this “Liquid White” beauty found its home in Dubai, where its BRABUS typical exterior enhancements rounded off by 20-inch BRABUS Monoblock wheels as well as its bespoke BRABUS interior in “Lipstick Red” made it one of the most unique supercars on the road at the time.

BRABUS S V12S

Equipped with one of the most powerful BRABUS engines of the decade, the 2006 BRABUS S V12S was a purebred luxury supercar based on the Mercedes-Benz W221 S-Class. Its twin turbocharged 6.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine configuration producing 537 kW / 730 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque was specially designed and tested to catapult the elegant four-seater from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds at a top speed of 340 km/h, making it the fastest production limousine in the world. In combination with a BRABUS typical aerodynamic enhancement concept, 21-inch BRABUS Monoblock forged wheels as well as a complete, fully brabusized interior, the BRABUS S V12S left nothing to the imagination.

2007
BRABUS BULLIT

Some cars don’t require a detailed, technical designation to convey their potential. In the case of the BRABUS Bullit, one word sufficed to tell a story of speed, uncompromising power and next-level engineering. Revealed in 2007 following the success of previous V12 powered supercar projects such as the E V12 and first generation BRABUS Rocket, the BRABUS Bullit combined track-ready performance with a brand new, unique identity of its own. The source – a twin turbocharged 6.3-liter S-Spec V12 engine producing 537 kW / 730 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque catapulting the fully brabusized W204 Mercedes-Benz C-Class from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds at a top speed of over 360 km/h. Rounded off by a complete BRABUS exterior concept, improved suspension, 19-inch BRABUS Monoblock forged wheels and a signature BRABUS interior upgrade, the Bullit was as stunning as it was fast, even if usually, it was long gone by the time anyone could take a second look.

BRABUS ULTIMATE 112

Several years after its predecessor model burst onto the scene at the 2004 Essen Motor Show, the all-new BRABUS Ultimate 112 was eager to take the smart ForTwo 451 platform to the next level. Immediately recognizable in true smart BRABUS fashion thanks to its pearl-metallic orange special paintwork, our team of BRABUS engineers raised the compact’s power output to 82 kW / 112 hp and 150 Nm of torque. Equipped with a new and improved three-cylinder engine, the Ultimate 112 could sprint to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds at a top speed of 170 km/h. Further highlight features included extensive bodywork enhancements, a complete BRABUS interior, improved suspension and 18-inch BRABUS Monoblock wheels to tastefully fill the widened arches. Production was strictly limited to 112 units worldwide.

2008
BRABUS Unimog U500 Black Edition

Here at BRABUS, no two cars are ever the same; and in the summer of 2008, the team completed development on one of the most unique projects to ever roll through our production. The BRABUS Unimog U500 ‘Black Edition’. The Unimog has been a cornerstone of the Mercedes-Benz truck inventory since 1951 and, after realizing the need for a “civilian” version of their vehicle, the Unimog factory chiefs approached us. Powered by a 6.4-liter straight-six turbo-diesel engine producing 210 kW / 286 hp and 1,120 Nm of torque, the ‘Black Edition’ conversion saw most of its drastic change in its aesthetics and functionality. Consisting of carbon fiber body elements, a unique flatbed rear fabricated from aluminum, improved weight distribution as well as a complete, BRABUS typical bespoke interior.

2009
BRABUS GLK V12 + REKORD

It’s safe to assume that whatever supercar afficionados in the summer of 2009 pictured the world’s fastest SUV to look like, at first glance, the BRABUS GLK V12 with its unassuming, sophisticated exterior certainly may not have met expectations. However, that was precisely the point. Equipped with a BRABUS typical 6.3-liter twin turbocharged V12 engine producing 552 kW / 750 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque, this wolf in sheep’s clothing based on the Mercedes-Benz GLK could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. Inevitably, the BRABUS GLK V12 found itself at the start line of the Nardo speed track in southern Italy, where it reached a top speed of 322.3 km/h. An achievement, which successfully earned it the prestigious title of fastest street legal SUV in the world.

BRABUS ML63 BiTurbo

One of the final V8 BRABUS conversions of the decade was the BRABUS ML63 BiTurbo, based on the Mercedes-AMG ML63. Equipped with a 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 478 kW / 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque in combination with the lightning-fast Speedshift 7-gear transmission, this fully brabusized street off-roader could sprint from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds at a top speed of 310 km/h. Additional highlight features included a complete BRABUS aerodynamic-enhancement concept, BRABUS Monoblock forged wheels, improved suspension and brake systems and a BRABUS typical interior upgrade.

BRABUS E V12 ONE OF TEN

Production on the fourth generation BRABUS E V12 “One of Ten” completed in September of 2009 after an extensive development phase guided by a single goal: to build a car that was faster, more aerodynamic and more exclusive than its three predecessors. At the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the first unmistakable difference visitors to the BRABUS booth were introduced to was its far from subtle exterior design. Defined by a significant aerodynamic enhancement concept complete with enclosed wheel houses, this one-of-a-kind supercar based on the W212 Mercedes-Benz E-Class achieved a drag coefficient of 0.27. Under the hood, our team of BRABUS engineers under Ulrich Gauffrés fitted a 6.3-liter R-Spec engine producing 588 kW / 800 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque. From rest it could accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds at a top speed of well over 370 km/h. Production was strictly limited to 10 units worldwide.

2010S

For BRABUS, the 2010s was a decade of change. One of new horizons and expansion. With an ever-growing team situated in new, established locations around all corners of the globe, BRABUS had succeeded in becoming an international brand.

2010
BRABUS VANISH

One of a kind. The BRABUS 800, based on the Mercedes-AMG SL65 Black Series. Only a single unit was built in the spring of 2010, destined for a loyal customer who named it: “Vanish”. Fully brabusized down to the last detail, this unique BRABUS supercar featured a custom spec T65 RS twin-turbocharged V12 engine producing its namesake 588 kW / 800 hp. The Vanish accelerated from 0 - 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds and reached a blistering top speed of over 350 km/h. With the performance, looks and sounds of a true fighter jet, the car easily lived up to its name, able to vanish before you ever saw it coming.

BRABUS E V12 CABRIO

The Sky is the limit. Specifically created to commemorate the grand opening of the BRABUS Middle East headquarters in Dubai, the BRABUS E V12 Cabrio is one of the fastest convertibles we have ever built. Mechanically, it was identical to the E V12 Coupe, which means it was powered by the BRABUS 6.3 R spec engine producing 800 hp and 1,420 Nm of torque, which allowed it to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds.

FOUNDING OF BRABUS USA

Fitted with a custom exterior concept, a valve-controlled sports-exhaust system for the right acoustics, a set of custom wheels and, underneath its matte gray paintwork, a massive twin-turbocharged V12 producing its namesake 800 hp – the Bullit Coupe was designed to redefine the boundaries of high-performance.

BRABUS ROCKET 800

After the success of the original 2006 BRABUS Rocket, the bar was raised high for the project that was to take its place. The key attributes that were expected for the predecessor model, however, were kept simple: Bigger, better and faster. With that in mind, we unveiled the BRABUS Rocket 800, based on the Mercedes-AMG CLS 63 C218 at the Frankfurt Motor Show that same year. Under the hood, our engineers fitted a massive twin-turbocharged V12 producing 800 hp and 1,100 Nm of torque, sending the Rocket from 0 – 100 Km/h in 3.7 seconds at a top speed of over 370 km/h. Several changes were made to the exterior of the C218 to handle its newly found power. These included a full carbon fiber widebody aero-concept defined by a completely re-style nose and custom fenders, a BRABUS sports exhaust system, 20-inch BRABUS Monoblock F wheels and the same suspension system used on the BRABUS E V12.
