I think I’m happy to admit this – I’m an Apple hussy. Not only am I, but the rest of the growing team here at Ranch Crank&Piston are too. We have iMacs, Macbook Pro’s, pods, touches, phones etc etc.
So you can imagine that when we stumbled across this mental Brabus Barge, busting from the seams with Mac technology we fell in love for a moment.
Brabus have done their usual and taken the almost complete Mercedes S-Class, stuffed a twin turbo 6.3 liter V12 from a Maybach, improved the suspension, wheels, tires and the usual super subtle yet very aggressive exterior treatment.
Topped off with an interior in the usual superb quality. Typical Brabus I think you will agree?!
However this particular car is called the Brabus iBusiness. Not your typical Bahn brusier then as this one is stuffed with a Mac Mini in the boot connected to a 15.4 inch fold-down screen in the headliner and a pair of smaller screens in the headrests; a 64-gig iPod Touch that can hold more than 830 hours of music that plays through the stereo or separate noise reducing headphones.
On top of all of that there are a pair of iPads allowing the back seat passengers to control the entire multimedia system, along with temperature, radio tuning, etc. through the car’s stock computer system.
And by no means least a latest generation iPhone is thrown in for good measure.
So as you and your guest/business partner are loosing yourself in the back with all the tech and probably one or two too many screens, your driver is up front sampling 995 lb-ft of twist under his right foot and ensuring that all of the 750 horsepower is delivered in the most serene way plausible.
