Neutrality Be Damned: 10 Best Cars from the Geneva Motor Show

The Geneva Motor show is where carmakers like to come out and play. The absence of a major Swiss automaker provides both a level playing field for all manufacturers and a platform for car designers to go a bit crazy, often with radical concept cars. But there is a different class of vehicles, the ones that will see production, fulfilling our petrol-filled dreams by bringing speed, power and ingenuity to the road. These are our ten favorite production cars from the show.

Hell's convertible

Brabus 800 Roadster

If Ferrari Spiders and Lamborghinis Spyders seem like commonplace cabriolets to you, and "Overkill" also happens to be your middle name, you'll want to get in touch with the folks at upscale tuner Brabus for their latest birthing from the fifth circle of hell, the 800 Roadster. What started out as an "ordinary" Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG with a 621 hp V12 is surgically enhanced both inside and out, transforming it into the world's most powerful roadster.


Brabus Bullit Coupe 800

Brabus, the renowed German tuner responsible for untethered versions of already incredible automobiles, has just released the ridiculously fast Brabus Bullit Coupe 800 for the Geneva Auto Show. Based on the current C63 AMG, this iteration is far more potent, with a fat twin-turbo V12 from the S600 shoehorned into the engine bay. Brabus even...

Brabus Mercedes-Benz 800 E V12 Cabriolet

Had enough mad black tuner cars yet? It looks like there’s no end in sight, and that’s okay with us. Brabus recently released the automotive equivalent of an M198 Howitzer, the Brabus Mercedes-Benz 800 E V12 Cabriolet ($681,484) turning an already powerful convertible into an instant way to flatten the top of your skull. The...

Wicked Comes In A Black Two-Door

2010 Brabus E V12 Coupe

If you’ve got an itch for a truly unique Mercedes-Benz (hear me LA?) and about $650,000 sitting around then you too can join a rarefied class of Mercedes E-Class coupes. In this variation, the Brabus E V12 Coupe: an 800 horsepower (1,047 lb-ft torque!) 6.3 liter twin-turbo V12 bat out of hell will hit 60...

BRABUS Smart Fortwo Brabus

A 45 MPG BRABUS. Yeah… The notion of miles per gallon and efficiency don’t really come to mind when one thinks ofBRABUS. As a matter of fact, terms like “what the hell?”, “why?”, “holy shit”, and “you’ve gotta be kidding” tend to be conjured up in sentences with BRABUS in them. It was inevitable that...

2009 BRABUS SL SV12 S Bi-Turbo

[click on image to enlarge] Something wicked this way comes. At least that’s how the subject line should have read for the press release I received for the BRABUS sport program from the new Mercedes-Benz SL. 730 horsepower. 973 lb-ft of torque. 305/25 ZR (305, seriously?) tires riding on 20 inch light-alloy wheels. Still with...

Mercedes-Benz Unimog Brabus U 500 Black Edition

What? This is a Mercedes? The ridiculous fact that this is a Mercedes belies the abilities of this vehicle. Tuned by the mad scientists at Brabus, the Unimog Black Edition is a combination of day-to-day recreation and utility in addition to over the top “cost is no objective” satisfaction. This “thing” features: COMAND DVD navigation...
