Brabus set a new record top speed at the Nardo test track in Italy this weekend. The weapon of choice was a Maybach 57 powered by their Brabus SV12 S Biturbo engine. The special Maybach 57 hit an amazing 330.6 km/h after a number of runs on the famous oval. With a total weight of over 2700 kg the Brabus Maybach is the heaviest car to ever achieve such a speed. Brabus further developed the 5.5 liter V12 that produces 550 hp in the Maybach 57 into a 6.3 liter V12 delivering 730 hp.
It’s not the first time Brabus sets a record at Nardo. In October 2006 the Brabus Rocket, based on a Mercedes CLS, set a top speed record for street-legal sedans of 365.7 km/h. With this new record Brabus established itself even more as the number one Mercedes and Maybach tuner.
