Tucked away in the tuner section of the Frankfurt Auto Show was the mighty Brabus display in which the
record-breaking twin-turbo V12 E-class capable of 218 mph was on display as well as this, the Brabus Rocket, based on
the MB CLS. Heralded by Brabus as the fastest four-door coupe in the world, the Rocket also features a twin-turbo V12
that produces… ahem… 730 horsepower capable of quite a stampede. 0-60 mph in less than four seconds. 217 mph
electronically-limited top speed. This has got to be the sickest sled we've ever seen. In addition to copious
amounts of power, the well-reputed Brabus also performed a host of hardware upgrades including brakes, suspension and
aerodynamic body pieces designed to reduce lift and optimize drag. Check out the full press release at
Many more pics after the jump.

The Brabus twin-turbo V12-powered E-Class is the fastest sedan in the world at over 218 mph. Such a conspicuous disregard for fuel efficiency was a rare sight at the 2005 Frankfurt Auto Show.
