German high performance tuning company, Brabus has unveiled the most powerful convertible car in the world and they call it the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio.
Naturally, when one thinks of powerful monstrous cars, one assumes the Germans are the only ones who can pull it off in the maddest possible way. But what happens when they take an already powerful Mercedes-AMG and turn it up to 11? It spawns the most powerful and fastest four seater cabriolet with a folding roof in the world.
Say hello to the Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Cabrio. Brabus has been fiddling around with cars from Mercedes for long time. They recently got their hands on the Mercedes-AMG S63 cabriolet which initially had only a mere 577hp from a 5.5-litre twin-turbo V12 and did 0-100km/h in 4.1 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
Brabus after tinkering with it decided to up the displacement to 6-litres, fitted a brand new crankshaft, forged pistons, connecting rods, cylinder heads, intake module, exhaust system, and even larger turbos. The result of the mods gives the Brabus 850hp which assists it to reach from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds and max out at 350km/h. Brabus says it could do more, but the tyres wouldn’t handle the power.
In addition to the mods to the engine, Brabus also added a carbon-fibre aero kit, 21-inch monoblock alloy wheels, and added many more cool features to the interior. Brabus will also take the trouble to set the car up to the customers liking if they agree to grease a few hands after paying the the price of $180,000 for the donor car.
Brabus displayed the cabriolet publically at the 24 hours of Le Mans in France for the very first time.
