Brabus Bullit Coupe 800 is German for "Hot Rod"

Here's an age-old recipe for awesome pie: Take one small chassis, add one massive engine, sprinkle with forced induction and serve smoking hot.
Brabus has followed that recipe to the letter with the new Bullit Coupe 800 unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
The brawny C-Class features a bored-out version of the 5.5-liter V12 that typically powers the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. With 6.3 liters of displacement and two turbos shoving air down the engine's throat, the car is good for a limited 800 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque. If Brabus could have found a transmission capable of standing up to the ludicrous amount of power on tap, the car would be spitting out 1,047 lb-ft. With its wings clipped, the meanest C-Class of them all still manages to hit 100 km/h in around 3.7 seconds.
Just when you thought matte black paint had grown stale, Brabus builds a car worthy of the hue.
