2001 Brabus M V12
The Guinness Book of World Records proclaimed it the fastest 4×4 in the world: The BRABUS M 12, electronically limited to a top speed of 260 km/h, is based on the Mercedes M-Class.
That performance is made possible by the BRABUS displacement increase to 7,255 ccm, achieved through the use of a special crankshaft and forged pistons. In addition, the cylinder heads are fine-tuned and sport camshafts are mounted. The engine electronics are adjusted to the new conditions as well. The BRABUS stainless-steel sport exhaust with metal catalyst and four tail pipes guarantees optimal exhaust flow and a sporty engine sound.

The fully leather interior in BRABUS mastik leather is precisely crafted down to the smallest detail. Countless attractive extras are offered, like a perfectly integrated navigation system or a TV/VCR system with LCD displays in the back of the front head rests.
