What is the fastest sedan under the sun? Up until a few days ago, it was a Mercedes E-Class, tuned by Brabus. That car can kiss the world record good-bye.
The German tuner G-Power in Autenzell, north of Munich, equipped a BMW M5 with a 588 kW/800 hp ten cylinder engine with a twin turbo, called it “Hurricane RR” and brought it to 372 km/h (231 mph), says Automobilwoche [sub]. The Brabus was 2 km/h slower.
The Brabus boys in Bottrop aren’t sitting on their hands. “We haven’t reached top speed yet“ said Dalibor Erakovic of Brabus. “There will be a new car.” When, how fast, and how much remains anybody’s guess.
