Collect Sobbing Tissues In Advance, The Next Gen Brabus E 800 Cabriolet

Brabus seems to push the bounds of automotive excellence every now and again. Not surprisingly, this year’s super mod of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet is no exception. What is surprising, however, is how unbelievably awesome this next gen Brabus really is. The Brabus 800 E V12 Cabriolet begins as a pedestrian Mercedes E-Class Convertible. Then something nearly magical happens… a bi-turbo 6.3 liter V12 engine falls from the sky to deliver a scintillating 788 horsepower and an electronically limited 811 lb.-ft. of torque. Yes, that’s limited.

As you can imagine, this car isn’t for the faint of heart or wallet. Pricing starts at $681,200. In exchange for so much cash, drivers can pull 3.7 second 0-60 mph times—and, of course, 0-185 mph in just over 23 seconds. Assuming you can manage to maintain control, the Brabus 800 E will run out of juice around 231 mph.

That’s what we like to call the fastest four-seat convertible, in existence.

Stylistically, the Brabus 800 E appears quite sophisticated for an asphalt-shredding monster. The vehicle comes with aerodynamically efficient carbon fiber accents, a lowered sport suspension, and 19-inch alloy wheels. The interior upgrades include a sport steering wheel, lipstick red and black leather seats, carbon fiber trim, and a fancy speedo that measures jaunts up to 250 mph.

Engine peripherals were reworked on the standard E-Class as well. The Brabus E 800 features two aggressive exhaust manifolds with larger turbochargers, four tailpipes mated to high-performance exhaust, and the intake is a completely new design incorporating a custom built hood and integrated carbon-fiber ram-air hood.

There is no question that the Brabus 800 E V12 Cabriolet is a vehicle worthy of salivating, cherishing, and most certainly Mr. Wayne himself. The pictures show a car that is both beautiful and refined, a car that would have the same effect as a lost love or an altogether too fine bottle of brandy. It’s almost impossible to look upon the Brabus 800 E and not think… “If only she felt the same way about me.”
