The long legs of the law
20 November 2006

The Sweeney had a fleet of Granadas. The Professionals had a 3-litre Capri and an RS2000. But poor old German traffic plod has to make do with a 6.3-litre V12 Brabus Rocket version of a Mercedes-Benz CLS.

This ultimate speeders’ nightmare is capable of 225.19mph thanks to 730bhp and (an electronically-limited) 811.1lb ft at 2100rpm; its theoretical maximum is 974.1lb ft.

The car has been created as part of the Tune It Safe campaign designed to dissuade Germany’s wannabe Schumachers (remember him?) from bolting unsafe go-faster goodies to their buzzboxes.Yeah, right...
