This Twin-Turbo, Mac-Equipped Mercedes Luxury Sedan Is A 'Land Jet'S

You're familiar with the term "land yacht" to describe huge, old, floaty American cars. The world's super-wealthy have a new class of vehicle. I'm calling it the Land Jet, and it's typified by the new 850 horsepower BRABUS S Class.

Basically, the Brabus 850 Biturbo is what happens when some nouveau riche billionaire decides that the Mercedes S65 AMG is neither powerful or ostentatious enough. I mean, that car only has 621 horsepower. Pitiful.

German über tuner Brabus took a smaller S63 AMG, bored its 5.5 liter engine to 5.9 liters, gave it beefier internals, upped the boost with two new turbos, sheathed the intake and charge-air tubes with real gold, and ended up with an extra 265 horsepower over stock.

Now with 850 horses and 1,069 lb-ft of torque, I can only imagine full bore acceleration feels like takeoff. The estimated 0-60 mph time is 3.5 seconds and the weight is surely over 5,000 lbs.

Matching the aircraft-grade acceleration is the aircraft-grade interior. There's a star night headliner, integrated iPad mini, a custom rear center console, an integrated Mac mini computer, a 15.2-inch TFT display, and a number of outlets and plugs. The rest of the interior is available in any shade of leather, any quantity of wood, and any garish amount of carbon fiber.
