720hp 900+ lb-ft torque... insane power... must be a bit difficult to drive on a normal street...

I would buy it if I had money falling out of my ears like the clientele that will buy it does. That thing will give you neck sprains. I would like to see one in black paint with a contrasting wheel finish.. MASSIVE TORQUE FTW!

Love the interior. Everything else looks like it was inspired by TRANSFORMERS

I love the look, and I'd want to see the Top Gear boys get a crack at it. I remember some other Brabus Benz they tested recently had way too much power that it overloaded the DTC, but with it off, it was also nearly undriveable. That one also couldn't handle the corners at all. I'd be curious to see if Brabus has done anything to correct those problems or if it's same old story with Benz...massive power and great straight line performance, but shitty cornering.

That car is fucking hot. All i would change is the Rocket front bumper to a normal Brabus Bumper and the grill. Brabus does the interior much better than AMG. The stitching in this car is so beautiful

The exterior lines of the car just don't right. Very boxy and edgy, as in a Cadillac......

I love the looks, but it's a ridiculous car. V12 in a C-Class? $500K? Retarded.

Yeah, I don't care how much money I have, it's a C-Class with like 600hp.

Even if it had 1000hp, I still wouldn't buy a c-class for $500k.

I'd rather use the money to buy a slightly used Ferrari F430, Aston Martin DB9 and a barely used Bentley GT. Hello!

I don't like the styling, and the new C class AMG already has too much power. ... and yes I do believe a car can have too much power.

That is a sweet ride. I love the interior. To bad barbus doesnt work on stuffing over powered v12 TT engines into 335i's, damn it, now that would be bad ass!

That's a beautiful car. Price is outrageous, but that motor is amazing.

People sure bash MB's on here...if you saw that car on the highway, we'd be reading posts titled "OMG saw a Brabus C63!!"

500K is insane, but when exclusitivity is the name of the game, there is no such thing as too much $$.

+1. The people who are interested in these cars basically shit out the measly $500K price mark. Exclusivity comes at a hefty price tag.
