Just Pull Over: New Police Car Does 362Km/h


To highlight the 'Tune It Safe!' program German supertuner Brabus has produced a fully armoured police car with a top speed of 362.4km/h. (225mph) It can go from 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds, 200km/h in 10.5 seconds and 300km/h in 29.5 seconds.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS V12 S has a maximum power output of 537 kW at 5,100 rpm. It's torque is limited to 1100 Nm but could theoretically go to 1320 Nm without the limiter. The car will be on display at the Essen Motor Show in December.

The Tune It Safe! program was created by the German Federal Traffic Ministry and the Association of German Automobile Tuners to promote legal and safe tuning. Last year they had TechArt make a Porsche 911 Carrera S police car for the show.

Power in kW?
Torque in Nm?
Speed in km/h?

  Thats not bad, BUT  
check your local drag strip, and see what MOST of the funny car class entrants are turning in a QUARTER mile. And I might mention with American technoligy, and no help from Mercedes.

why can't the American's speak Units like the rest of the world?

don't think that because you're american (or english) you're the ones that got it 'right' .. it's the opposite.
The majority of people use the metric, which is by the way the accepted unit system you get to use in science (physics,math,chemistry.etc) applications, learn to live with it.

A tuner is a customized high-performance car (souped-up).

  Um, the British use SI units too!  
Well, sometimes, when we can be arsed. We still have all our road signs in miles.

  Super Tuners !!!  

A tuner is a car that has been performance tuned for racing, in this context it is usually referring to street racing.

Popular versions of "Tuners" in action:
The Fast and the Furious movie series
Need for Speed Underground games series
Street Tuner
Super Tuner
Sport Compact Custom

To name a few. I'm an avid tuner fan, but, but even with the machines I've torn up the road with, I don't think I've ever broke 200mph anywhere other then a drag strip.
The scary part here though is thats a cop car that can out accelerate a motorcycle.

Calm the hell down man he was being sarcastic.

  It doesn't really matter  
We have helicopters anyway so who gives a shit about the cars?
  by: Dark_Stang   12/01/2006 07:49 PM     
  @old man  
While the numbers arn't impressive when compared to track cars, the car is armored, that's got to be at least a couple hundred pounds of extra weight.

  @old man  
Not to mention it's a COP's not a race car. Funny car's aren't running from the cops, people in street cars are.

  @old man  
plus, i suppose this car is street legal going by the program name?
  by: pornohippy   12/02/2006 08:07 PM     
yes, it is
  by: kraut   12/03/2006 01:18 PM     
Italian Police already use a Lambo or two.

@old man - A funny car/dragster wouldnt get far from any police vehicle. Regardless of its speed and acceleration. Have you any idea how difficult it is to control those vehicles? Try doing it while running from the cops and not losing control at 400-500kmh+.
