Super tuner Brabus has outed its latest project, which it claims to be the fastest 4-seat cabriolet at the moment: the Brabus E V12 Cabriolet that’s based on the E-Class cabriolet. As you can guess by its name, the tuner has outfitted the car with its own Brabus 800 V12 twin-turbo 12-cylinder engine to produce an astounding 800 horsepower with 1,047 lb.-ft. of torque that’s electronically limited to 811 lb.-ft.

The V12 engine is connected to a 5-speed automatic tranny and comes with a high-performance exhaust system that features stainless steel construction and four tailpipes. The car’s 0-60 speed is pegged at 3.7 seconds, and it gets to 200 kph (124 mph) in a mere 9.9 seconds. According to the tuner, top speed reaches a whopping 231 mph.

Outside the car, we see some LED daytime running lights right at the front apron, along with some sport fenders up front and carbon-fiber fender flares at the car’s rear side. Prospective buyers can choose from different 19-inch performance tires from different brands such as YOKOHAMA, Pirelli, and Continental.

As for the interior, there a black-leather-and-red finish to go with the ergonomic steering wheel, carbon fiber for the dash, console, and side trim, as well as new gauges that include a 250 mph dial speedometer.

The E V12 cabriolet starts at 478,000 euros, or around $679,000 and is built on demand.
