Brabus Bullitt Black Arrow news — Bite the Bullitt - 2008
How much would you pay for a C-Class that
can do 225mph? A C-Class armed with a 720bhp, twin-turbo, 6.3-litre V12? A
C-Class that looks stealthy and scary enough to conduct covert missile raids?
How about £275,000? No, thought not.
Still, that’s the asking price for the Brabus Bullitt Black Arrow, the latest
tarmac-obliterating mod-job from our favourite Teutonic tuners.
Yes, 720bhp. And, perhaps even more
impressively, 974lb ft of torque - a figure so absurd that Brabus has limited
it to a mere 811lb ft, presumably to prevent the five-speed auto’ transmission
turning itself into a black hole.
The Black Arrow will hit 62mph in 3.9
seconds and reach 186mph in 24.5 seconds - proper hypercar performance… but
at a proper hypercar price.
We still can’t quite fathom that price
tag. Surely even oil sheiks would bolster their extensive collection of Italian
exotica rather than splash more than quarter of a million big ones on a
souped-out rep saloon?
what you could buy for the price of one Black Arrow. A F430 Scuderia, an RS4
and an Ariel Atom, perhaps? What would you buy?
