Hot wheels for German police

Last year, the German Federal Traffic Ministry and the Association of German Automobile Tuners (VDAT) created the Tune It Safe! Programme. The aim of this programme was to encourage drivers to adopt safe and legal tuning practices.

To highlight the program, TechArt created a Porsche 911 Carrera S police car for the 2005 Essen Motor Show, where it was on displayed as the world's fastest police car.

With the Essen show coming up in December, Tune It Safe! turned to another well-known supertuner from Deutschland, Brabus.

Sporting full police armour this year will be one of Brabus' amazing CLS V12 S Rocket sedan.

Its maximum power output of 537 kW is produced at 5 100 r/min. Peak torque is 1 320 Nm, but is limited electronically to 1 100 Nm available from a low 2 100 r/min.

Top speed is 362.4 km/h while it goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds. It reaches the 200 km/h in 10.5 seconds and 300 km/h in 29.5 seconds.
