Why do you consider it tacky? With that being said, it is generally North America that has a fascination w/ leather. Other parts of the world don't think so highly of it. So what makes leather any less tacky.

What I like is really not your problem. We are all here to post our opinions.

No, I don't like the GT-R, and I do like the C63, but not the Brabus C63 that looks too over-done.

Any other complaints?

Thank you.

LOVE the rear, ESPECIALLY with the huge-ass diffuser. Don't like the front w/o the badge...looks unfinished.

The interior is awesome, barring the steering wheel.

Over the past three decades BRABUS has perfected the art of transplanting large and extremely powerful engines into the bodies of small cars. That path led to numerous world records and entries into the Guinness Book of World Records. The BRABUS BULLIT, built in small-series production based on the new Mercedes C-Class sedan, celebrates its world debut at the IAA 2007 as the ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing.

At the heart of this supercar BRABUS placed the BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine. It was originally designed for the world’s fastest sedan, the BRABUS ROCKET. The implantation of the 6.3-liter (385 cu. in.) engine into the confines of the W 204 series body is yet more proof for the superiority of BRABUS know-how.

The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo engine is produced entirely in-house in the state-of-the-art BRABUS engine building shop. Displacement of the twelve-cylinder three-valve engine is increased with the help of a larger cylinder bore, special pistons and piston rods. The conversion further includes re-machining the cylinder heads and fitting them with special camshafts.

The BRABUS engine specialists further developed an entirely new turbocharging system with two larger chargers and more efficient intercoolers. The BRABUS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine also breathes more feely thanks to metal catalysts with low back pressure and a stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system custom-tailored for the C-Class body.

New engine electronics ensure the perfect combination of maximum power yield and running smoothness. The use of custom mapping and the on-board diagnostics system result in low exhaust emissions that meet stringent Euro IV limits. The BRABUS BULLIT features state-of-the-art traction and stability control systems such as ABS, ASR and ESP.

The turbocharged twelve-cylinder engine – lubricated like all BRABUS high-performance engines with ARAL Synthetic motor oil – delivers 730 PS (720 hp) / 537 kW of superlative power and 1,320 Nm (974 lb-ft) of superlative peak torque. The latter is limited electronically in-car to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).

Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a massively modified five-speed automatic transmission and a BRABUS rear locking differential with a locking rate of up to 40 percent. It is available with two different final drive ratios.

The performance figures for the BRABUS BULLIT place it into pole position in its class: The car sprints from 0 – 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, reaches 200 km/h (124 mph) after just 10.49 seconds and shatters the 300-km/h (186 mph) barrier after a mere 24.5 seconds. Top speed is more than 360 km/h (224 mph). There are only a very few super sports cars in the world that can hope to match these numbers.

Such performance places special demands on aerodynamic properties, suspension and brakes. The sedan body was optimized for runs beyond 300 km/h (186 mph) in the wind tunnel.

The BRABUS BULLIT front apron was designed to provide maximum cooling air supply for radiators and front brakes while at the same time minimizing aerodynamic lift. For a perfect aerodynamic balance the four-door features a three-piece rear spoiler and a rear apron with integrated diffuser. Front and rear spoilers are manufactured from especially lightweight yet high-strength carbon fiber, baked in an autoclave.

A special aluminum hood with ventilation slots is more than just a visual cue; it also contributes to the thermal health of all components under the hood. BRABUS rocker panels smooth the airstream along the sides and with their integrated entrance lights make entering and exiting the vehicle safer under low-light conditions.

The slightly understated sporty appearance of the supercar is further characterized by aluminum fender flares front and back, seamlessly molded to the stock body. They add six centimeters (2.36 inches) to the width of the C-Class body.

They also make room for especially wide BRABUS wheels and YOKOHAMA ADVAN high-performance tires. The BULLIT runs on size 9.5Jx19 BRABUS Monoblock S light-alloy wheels and size 265/30 ZR 19 tires on the steering axle. The rear axle features 10Jx19 wheels with size 285/30 ZR 19 tires.

The suspension too was custom-developed to account for the power and the weight of the twin-turbo V12 engine. The sporty yet comfortable height-adjustable BRABUS coil-over suspension features ten selectable settings each for bound and rebound, and ensures safe handling in all driving situations. Sport sway bars reduce body roll during fast cornering to a minimum.

The BRABUS high-performance brake system can handle even the most extreme stress. It features 12-piston aluminum fixed calipers on the front axle that grip vented and grooved 380 x 37 millimeter (15 x 1.46 inches) brake discs. The rear axle stops with 360 x 28 millimeter (14.2 x 1.1 inches) discs and six-piston aluminum fixed calipers.

This BRABUS automobile also offers exclusive individuality in the interior: The standard equipment package includes a fully leather interior hand-crafted in the company-own upholstery shop from the finest Mastik and Nubuk leathers.

The custom BULLIT seats offer a perfect combination of comfort and lateral support. Their carbon-fiber rear covers lend the interior an especially sporty feel. This look is complemented by carbon-fiber components on dashboard, center console and door panels as well as by the ergonomically shaped sport steering wheel and aluminum pedals and shifter.

The BRABUS BULLIT is built on demand starting at 348,000 Euros MSRP.
