Over the past three decades BRABUS has perfected the art of
transplanting large and extremely powerful engines into the bodies
of small cars. That path led to numerous world records and entries
into the Guinness Book of World Records. The BRABUS BULLIT, built in
small-series production based on the new Mercedes C-Class sedan,
celebrates its world debut at the IAA 2007 as the ultimate wolf in
At the heart of this supercar BRABUS (www.brabus.com)
placed the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine. It was
originally designed for the worlds fastest sedan, the BRABUS
ROCKET. The implantation of the 6.3-liter (385 cu. in.) engine into
the confines of the W 204 series body is yet more proof for the
superiority of BRABUS know-how.
The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo engine is produced entirely in-house in
the state-of-the-art BRABUS engine building shop. Displacement of
the twelve-cylinder three-valve engine is increased with the help of
a larger cylinder bore, special pistons and piston rods. The
conversion further includes re-machining the cylinder heads and
fitting them with special camshafts.
The BRABUS engine specialists further developed an entirely new
turbocharging system with two larger chargers and more efficient
intercoolers. The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine also
breathes more feely thanks to metal catalysts with low back pressure
and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system
custom-tailored for the C-Class body.
New engine electronics ensure the perfect combination of maximum
power yield and running smoothness. The use of custom mapping and
the on-board diagnostics system result in low exhaust emissions that
meet stringent Euro IV limits. The BRABUS BULLIT features
state-of-the-art traction and stability control systems such as ABS,
ASR and ESP.
The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine lubricated like all BRABUS
high-performance engines with ARAL Synthetic motor oil delivers
730 PS (720 hp) / 537 kW of superlative power and 1,320 Nm (974
lb-ft) of superlative peak torque. The latter is limited
electronically in-car to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a massively modified
five-speed automatic transmission and a BRABUS rear locking
differential with a locking rate of up to 40 percent. It is
available with two different final drive ratios.
The performance figures for the BRABUS BULLIT place it into pole
position in its class: The car sprints from 0 100 km/h (62 mph) in
just 3.9 seconds, reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) after just 10.49
seconds and shatters the 300-km/h (186 mph) barrier after a mere
24.5 seconds. Top speed is more than 360 km/h (224 mph). There are
only a very few super sports cars in the world that can hope to
match these numbers.
Such performance places special demands on aerodynamic properties,
suspension and brakes. The sedan body was optimized for runs beyond
300 km/h (186 mph) in the wind tunnel.
The BRABUS BULLIT front apron was designed to provide maximum
cooling air supply for radiators and front brakes while at the same
time minimizing aerodynamic lift. For a perfect aerodynamic balance
the four-door features a three-piece rear spoiler and a rear apron
with integrated diffuser. Front and rear spoilers are manufactured
from especially lightweight yet high-strength carbon fiber, baked in
A special aluminum hood with ventilation slots is more than just a
visual cue; it also contributes to the thermal health of all
components under the hood.
BRABUS rocker panels smooth the airstream along the sides and with
their integrated entrance lights make entering and exiting the
vehicle safer under low-light conditions.
The slightly understated sporty appearance of the supercar is
further characterized by aluminum fender flares front and back,
seamlessly molded to the stock body. They add six centimeters (2.36
inches) to the width of the C-Class body.
They also make room for especially wide BRABUS wheels and YOKOHAMA
ADVAN high-performance tires. The BULLIT runs on size 9.5Jx19 BRABUS
Monoblock S light-alloy wheels and size 265/30 ZR 19 tires on the
steering axle. The rear axle features 10Jx19 wheels with size 285/30
ZR 19 tires.
The suspension too was custom-developed to account for the power and
the weight of the twin-turbo V12 engine. The sporty yet comfortable
height-adjustable BRABUS coil-over suspension features ten
selectable settings each for bound and rebound, and ensures safe
handling in all driving situations. Sport sway bars reduce body roll
during fast cornering to a minimum.
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
This BRABUS automobile also offers exclusive individuality in the
interior: 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
The BRABUS BULLIT is built on demand starting at 348,000 Euros MSRP.
