The Four-Door V12
Biturbo Stealth Super Sports Car
With 730 hp (720 hp SAE net), 1,320 Nm (974 lb-ft), 0 300 km/h

Ultra powerful, ultra fast and conspicuously inconspicuous: The
four-door stealth super sports car BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW offers
performance superlatives like no other car on the market: The basis
for the car is the body of the new C-Class sedan, covered with a
special matte-black coating. The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo
twelve-cylinder engine was dropped into the engine bay with almost
surgical precision. Performance is staggering: 3.9 seconds from rest
to 100 km/h (62 mph), 24.5 seconds for 0 300 km/h (186 mph) and a
top speed of more than 360 km/h (225 mph). BRABUS (www.brabus.com)
produces the BULLIT BLACK ARROW in small-series production starting
at 348,000 Euros MSRP.
The BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW ensures that the worlds fastest
sedans continue to come from Bottrop. The BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW
follows in the footsteps of the 330-km/h (206 mph) BRABUS E V12
based on the W 210-series Mercedes E-Class, the 350.2-km/h (219 mph)
E V12 Biturbo of the new W 211 generation and the worlds current
fastest sedan, the 365.7- km/h (227.2 mph) BRABUS ROCKET based on
the Mercedes CLS.
Numerous modifications to the reinforced body were necessary to
install the turbocharged V12 engine in the C-Class engine bay. The
BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo engine is derived directly from the BRABUS
ROCKET and uses the latest Mercedes S 600 engine that has been
completely reworked in the company-own engine building shop.
Nothing beats displacement except even more displacement: A
crankshaft with longer stroke, larger cylinder bore, and special
pistons and piston rods increase displacement of the twelve-cylinder
three-valve engine from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 385 cu. in.).
Cylinder heads optimized for faster gas exchange and
high-performance camshafts also contribute to the increase in power
output. They are assisted by a more efficient dual turbocharging
system, special manifolds, larger turbochargers and larger
intercoolers. Because of space constraints in the C-Class body an
entirely new stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with
low back-pressure metal catalysts had to be developed.
The BRABUS motor engineers used state-of-the-art engine test benches
to program new mapping for engine electronics and on-board
diagnostics. The new mapping ensures optimal power yield while
meeting strict EURO IV emission limits.
The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine, lubricated like all
BRABUS high-performance engines with ARAL Synthetic motor oil,
produces 730 hp (720 hp SAE net) / 537 kW at just 5,100 rpm. The
peak torque of 1,320 Nm (974 lb-ft) is limited in-car electronically
to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a reinforced five-speed
automatic transmission and a BRABUS limited-slip differential with a
locking rate of 40 percent. Customers can choose from two final
drive ratios. The BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW features all modern
driving dynamics systems such as ABS, ASR and ESP.
The matte-black stealth street rocket delivers unique performance:
Just 3.9 seconds pass for the sprint from 0 - 100 km/h (62 mph), 200
km/h (124 mph) is reached after just 10.49 seconds. And after just
24.5 seconds the car shatters the 300-km/h barrier (186 mph). Top
speed is more than 360 km/h (225 mph).
At these speeds favorable aerodynamic properties are absolutely
essential. The BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW was honed to perfection in
the wind tunnel. The BULLIT front apron features large air ducts to
supply cooling air for radiators and front brakes. Its sophisticated
design further reduces lift on the front axle. Its aerodynamic
counterparts in the rear are a three-piece rear spoiler and a rear
apron with integrated diffuser. Both front and rear aprons are made
from especially light yet highly robust autoclave-baked carbon
A wider track optimizes directional stability so elementary at
speeds beyond 300 km/h. The BRABUS designers have styled
aluminum wheel arch flares for front and rear axle. They are
seamlessly melded to the production body and add six centimeters
(2.4 inches) to the C-Class width. BRABUS rocker panels optimize the
airstream along the sides. They also feature integrated entry lights
that make entering and exiting the vehicle safer in the dark.
The visual appearance of the BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW is further
characterized by the new aluminum hood. Its integrated gills are
not just distinctive features, they also ensure the engines thermal
The wheel arch flares provide space for especially wide matte-black
BRABUS Monoblock S light-alloy wheels with high-performance tires
from technology partners YOKOHAMA or Pirelli. The 9.5Jx19 wheels on
the front axle are shod with size 265/30 ZR 19 tires. The rear axle
is fitted with size 10Jx19 wheels and size 285/30 ZR 19 tires.
The height-adjustable coil-over suspension was developed
specifically for the BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW. The gas-pressure
shocks feature ten selectable settings each for bound and rebound.
They provide a sporty yet comfortable ride and safe handling in any
situation. Sport stabilizers reduces body roll to a minimum during
The BRABUS high-performance brake system can handle even the most
extreme stress. It features 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the
front axle that grip vented and grooved 380 x 37 millimeter (15 x
1.46 inches) brake discs. The rear axle stops with 360 x 28
millimeter (14.2 x 1.1 inches) discs and six-piston aluminum fixed
Exclusive individuality also abounds in the interior of the BRABUS
automobile: The standard equipment package includes a fully leather
interior hand-crafted in the company-own upholstery shop from the
finest Mastik and Nubuk leathers.
The custom BULLIT seats offer a perfect combination of comfort and
lateral support. Their carbon-fiber rear covers lend the interior an
especially sporty feel. This look is complemented by carbon-fiber
components on dashboard, center console and door panels as well as
by the ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel and aluminum pedals
