2008 Brabus Bullit Black Arrow news, pictures, and information
BRABUS BULLIT BLACK ARROW: The Four-Door V12 Biturbo Stealth Super Sports Car With 730 hp1,320 Nm (974 lb-ft), 0 – 300 km/h (186 mph) in 24.5 seconds and a Top Speed of More than 360 km/h (225 mph)
Últra powerful, ultra fast and conspicuously inconspicuous: The four-door §téälth super sports car BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW offers performance superlatives like no other car on the market: The basis for the car is the body of the new C-Class sedan, covered wîth a special matte-black coating. The BRABÚS SV12 S Biturbo twelve-cylinder engine was dropped into the engine bay wîth almost surgical precision. Performance is staggering: 3.9 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph), 24.5 seconds for 0 – 300 km/h (186 mph) and a top speed of more than 360 km/h (225 mph). BRABÚS produces the BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW in small-series production starting at 348,000 Euros MSRP.
The BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW ensures that the world's fastest sedans continue to come from Bottrop. The BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW follows in the footsteps of the 330-km/h (206 mph) BRABÚS E V12 based on the W 210-series Mercedes E-Class, the 350.2-km/h (219 mph) E V12 Biturbo of the new W 211 generation and the world's current fastest sedan, the 365.7- km/h (227.2 mph) BRABÚS ROCKET based on the Mercedes CLS.
Numerous modifications to the reinforced body were necessary to install the turbocharged V12 engine in the C-Class engine bay. The BRABÚS SV12 S Biturbo engine is derived directly from the BRABÚS ROCKET and uses the latest Mercedes S 600 engine that has been completely reworked in the company-own engine building shop.
Nothing beats displacement except even more displacement: A crankshaft wîth longer stroke, larger cylinder bore, and special pistons and piston rods increase displacement of the twelve-cylinder three-valve engine from 5.5 to 6.3 liters (336 to 385 cu. in.).
|Engine : 6.2 L., 12-cylinder|
Power: 730 hp
Torque: 974 ft-lbs
The BRABÚS motor engineers used state-of-the-art engine test benches to program new mapping for engine electronics and on-board diagnostics. The new mapping ensures optimal power yield while meeting strict EÚRO IV emission limits.
The BRABÚS SV12 S Biturbo displacement engine, lubricated like all BRABÚS high-performance engines wîth ARAL Synthetic motor oil, produces 730 hp (720 hp SAE net) / 537 kW at just 5,100 rpm. The peak torque of 1,320 Nm (974 lb-ft) is limited in-car electronically to 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft).
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a reinforced five-speed automatic transmission and a BRABÚS limited-slip differential wîth a locking rate of 40 percent. Customers can choose from two final drive ratios. The BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW features all modern driving dynamics systems such as ABS, ASR and ESP.
The matte-black §téälth street rocket delivers unique performance: Just 3.9 seconds pass for the sprint from 0 - 100 km/h (62 mph), 200 km/h (124 mph) is reached after just 10.49 seconds. And after just 24.5 seconds the car shatters the 300-km/h barrier (186 mph). Top speed is more than 360 km/h (225 mph).
At these speeds favorable aerodynamic properties are absolutely essential. The BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW was honed to perfection in the wind tunnel. The BÚLLIT front apron features large air ducts to supply cooling air for radiators and front brakes. Its sophisticated design further reduces lift on the front axle. Its aerodynamic counterparts in the rear are a three-piece rear spoiler and a rear apron wîth integrated diffuser. Both front and rear aprons are made from especially light yet highly robust autoclave-baked carbon fiber.
A wider track optimizes directional stability so elementary at speeds beyond 300 km/h. The BRABÚS designers have styled aluminum wheel arch flares for front and rear axle. They are seamlessly melded to the production body and add six centimeters (2.4 inches) to the C-Class width. BRABÚS rocker panels optimize the airstream along the sides. They also feature integrated entry lights that make entering and exiting the vehicle safer in the dark.
The visual appearance of the BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW is further characterized by the new aluminum hood. Its integrated 'gills' are not just distinctive features, they also ensure the engine's thermal health.
The wheel arch flares provide space for especially wide matte-black BRABÚS Monoblock S light-alloy wheels wîth high-performance tires from technology partners YOKOHAMA or Pirelli. The 9.5Jx19 wheels on the front axle are shod wîth size 265/30 ZR 19 tires. The rear axle is fitted wîth size 10Jx19 wheels and size 285/30 ZR 19 tires.
The height-adjustable coil-over suspension was developed specifically for the BRABÚS BÚLLIT BLACK ARROW. The gas-pressure shocks feature ten selectable settings each for bound and rebound. They provide a sporty yet comfortable ride and safe handling in any situation. Sport stabilizers reduces body roll to a minimum during fast cornering.
The BRABÚS 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 wîth 360 x 28 millimeter (14.2 x 1.1 inches) discs and six-piston aluminum fixed calipers.
Exclusive individuality also abounds in the interior of the BRABÚS automobile: 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 BÚLLIT 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 §teering wheel and aluminum pedals and shifter.Source - Brabus
