Tuning the Crap Out of a Mercedes CLS: The Brabus Rocket

The boys at Brabus have finally let their maniacal laughter get the better of them. The tuning shop has created a Mercedes CLS — the Brabus Rocket — fitted with a twin-turbo V12 configuration that, according to the company, will propel it to 225.18492005328 mph, which (but for everything to the right of the decimal), is really freaking fast for a sedan. The price for such madness is in the neighborhood of $438,000, meaning Brabus spared no tweak to make the Rocket the most extreme sedan on the 'bahn. The engine is a 730 hp monster that needs a freaking torque limiter to keep it from turning itself into molten lava (811 ft.-lbs max). Now that's extreme.
