Brabus does the R-class: Minivan say what?

Brabus, tuner of all things Mercedes-Benz, has put quite a package together that makes the R-class the hottest thing going. The power-hungry fiends took the R500's standard 5.0-liter, 302-horsepower V8 and turned it into a grunt-worthy 6.1-liter engine with 445 horsepower. The Brabus R-Class puts out a top speed of 165 mph and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds -- as the folks at eMercedes-Benz say, "quick enough to get your kids to school and still get home in time to enjoy a full hour of Martha." Brabus also tweaked the look of the vehicle with a more aggressive body kit and put in a fung shui-inspired interior.
