The BRABUS front was designed to replace the original apron and provides radiators and front brakes with an optimal supply of cooling air. Side air vents provide an optimal heat exchange. The apron’s sophisticated shape markedly reduces aerodynamic lift on the front axle.
Air vents located behind the wheel arches were integrated into the front fenders. They are also vital to the thermal health of all components in the engine bay and help vent the front wheel houses to reduce lift on the front axle.
The rocker panels route the air stream to the slightly flared rear wheel arches with minimum turbulence.
A new rear apron with integrated diffuser and two cutouts for the characteristic tailpipes of the BRABUS quad high-performance exhaust were also developed for the BRABUS E V12. The rear spoiler lip on the trunk lid creates a perfect aerodynamic balance with the front axle.
The wider fenders make room for the wider track which translates into excellent directional stability at high speed. BRABUS Monoblock Q wheels in size 9.5Jx19 can be mounted front and back. The high-performance tires necessary at such high speeds are supplied by technology partners Pirelli and YOKOHAMA. The front axle features size 265/35 ZR 19 tires, the rear axle sports size 285/30 ZR 19 tires.
The BRABUS coilover suspension is calibrated specifically to this tire/wheel combination and the resulting wheel loads. The ride height of the suspension can be adjusted to the owner’s individual preferences. But that’s not all: Compression and rebound rates of the front and rear dampers can be adjusted in ten steps between very comfortable and extremely firm for use on the racetrack. Sport sway bars reduce body roll in fast corners.
No compromises either when it comes to brakes on the BRABUS E V12: The high-performance sedan features 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers and vented and grooved steel brake discs measuring 380 x 37 millimeters (15.0 x 1.5 inches) on the front axle. The rear axle stops on six-piston aluminum fixed calipers gripping discs measuring 360 x 28 millimeters (14.2 x 1.1 inches). The BRABUS high-performance brake system incorporates all functions of the standard Brake Assist system of the Mercedes E-Class.
The interior of the car exudes a feeling of true exclusive luxury. The sporty-contoured custom front seats, the two rear individual seats and the entire interior are upholstered with a combination of Alcantara and smooth and perforated leather. The entire vehicle floor is covered with square-patterned leather. It alone uses several miles of the finest thread, every inch of it sewn with utmost precision.
The ensemble is completed with custom-tailored carbon-fiber components for dashboard, center console and door panels. The BRABUS E V12 can be optionally equipped with a cell phone from premium manufacturer Vertu. This exclusive cell phone from the “Vertu Ascent Ti Carbon Fibre” limited edition of 1,500 phones features a titanium housing with the sides clad in black carbon fiber. This especially exclusive phone features 3G and quad-band technology as well as an integrated hands-free option, and represents state-of-the-art communication technology.
The BRABUS E V12 can also be ordered with comprehensive business package or with a multimedia package that represents state-of-the-art communication technology.
