One of the premier tuners of Mercedes vehicles, Brabus has made a business out of turning Benzes into even more powerful and luxurious modes of transportation. And the latest word from Germany has it that Mercedes will tap Brabus to build its upcoming top-of-the-line S-Class limousine. Expected to revive the Pullman name, the vehicle is set to compete with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Bentley Mulsanne at the top of the market with a sticker price as high as $1 million.
It wouldn't be the first time that Mercedes would turn to an outside partner for this kind of project. It wouldn't even be the first time Mercedes would call on the talents of Brabus for such a vehicle, either, the two having already collaborated on top-of-the-line versions of the Smart city car. Remember that Mercedes also turned to McLaren – with which it at that point fostered a close relationship – to produce the SLR. Here's hoping that the Pullman project goes (even) better.
