Can you imagine how many sedans can take on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V without breaking a sweat, the BRABUS Bullit Black Arrow could do it without question. Announced earlier this year and shown for the first time at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Bullit Black Arrow by BRABUS is your garden variety everyday Mercedes-Benz C-Class stuffed with a 730-horsepower twin-turbo 6.3L V12. It is painted in matte black, presumably for stealth reasons so that the dark saloon can reach its 227 mph top speed undetected by radar until it's too late for the po-po to do anything about it.
The Bullit Black Arrow will go from 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds, so it should just beat the CTS-V in that respect if the tires don't revert entirely to a gaseous state first. Of course, there are plenty of other upgrades, including all-carbon fiber front and rear aprons, a vented hood, flared aluminum wheel arches and 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels. The transmission, suspension and brakes are all beefed up and the interior has also been done up to BRABUS spec, as well. Expect to pay a premium for owning this "King of Sedans", BRABUS has priced the Bullit Black Arrow at 348,000 euro or $542,549.60 USD.
