The Brabus 'i-Business 2.0' produces 788bhp and features a high-tec Apple interior
22 March 2011

German tuning company Brabus has announced its i-Business 2.0, a tuned 219mph Mercedes S65 AMG described as the "fastest office on wheels".

The Brabus i-Business 2.0 uses the twin-turbo V12 from the S65, tuned to produce 788bhp and 1,047lb ft of torque. According to Brabus, this will launch the i-Business 2.0 to 60mph in 3.9sec and on to a top speed of 219mph.

The car's real novelty lies in the rear cabin. It features a built-in Apple iPad 2 multimedia system that controls all on-board entertainment and the high-speed internet connection. Built-in cameras also make it "supremely suited for video conferencing".

To house the iPads, a tailored Brabus table was developed, which fits into the backrests. The tabletop is covered with the same leather as the entire interior, with high-gloss aluminium border and recess to house the i-Pad.

Other high-tech features of the i-Business 2.0 include TV, high-speed USB ports integrated into the rear and a 64GB Apple iPod touch that can store more than 14,000 songs.

On the outside, the i-Business is clad in a Brabus "designer suit" with alloys available in sizes ranging from 19-inches to 21-inches.

Brabus's i-Business interior package is also available to order on its version of the S350.
