Brabus Produce 225 mph Mercedes CLS

German tuning company, Brabus have broken their own world record for the fastest saloon car.

They claim to have reached 225 mph on a recent trip to the Nardo circuit. This beats the previous record by 8 mph, held by one of their Mercedes E V12 biturbo cars.

Their new car, dubbed the “Rocket” (for obvious reasons) is based around the CLS model. Driven by a 6.2L twin turbo V12 producing 730 bhp and an incredible (electronically limited) 811 lbs ft of torque, thanks to a new crank, cams, pistons and larger turbochargers. 0-60 mph comes up in a whisker under 4 seconds, with the top speed limited to ‘just’ 217 mph.

The chassis side of things have also received the Brabus touch. Suspension is provided by Bilstein and is height adjustable. Ceramic brake discs are gripped by huge aluminium calipers. Nineteen inch alloys complete the look, for this awesome piece of engineering.
