of course it's fast in a straight line, but with all that weight in the front....... it must go round corners really bad, and it still looks like a Taxi

not impressed at all.

i dont see any speciality reasons to keep "a just-fast-saloon-car" even though its BRABUS tuned.

I like it, i have heard that it actually drives really well as it has steel springs instead of the air suspension.

That looks very mean ,but pointless....350kmh ...what for ? Even on an unrestircted autobahn you'd be mad to drive at that speed,and to be honest a danger to other road users.

I have not driven that car but you seem to have done that AA, since you conclude that it corners like "a sofa". Interesting.

I like it.

Correct, I just got back from Copenhagen where I thought 90% of the taxis are 2003 or newer E class MB's. I DID see one E60 taxi, debadged. I was blown away. The taxis were the nicest cars I saw there! Apparently you get a HUGE tax break if you register and use your car as a taxi for 2yrs. You can then sell it for more than you paid. That's what I was told when I kept on getting picked up from my Hotel in these new MB's.
my 5c :wroom:

As for the Brabus, once you start modding, all bets are off as you can make any car go as fast as you want depending on how much money you want to spend.

Never heard of Gumball 3000? ?????? And you have an M6, etc.. on order. If you drive with those cars 280 km/h, you'r not a danger for other road users or what? hmmm

And that E Brabus looks amazing, Those who say it' looks like a taxi are just ****in' jealous. Or stupid perhaps. Always that rivalry against Mercedes.. They also make wonderful cars, is that so difficult to accept it?

But yeah.. , who am I? ;)
I second that! ;)

Driving at high speed is always dangerous. Even when you're a driver with a lot of experience etc. And I also think that the Brabus looks quite good, but lets face it: this car won't corner like a Lotus or anything else, and that's just because it's a heavy large four door sedan. And I'd love to have this car as a taxi, I wouldn't be late on my appointments anymore!

Let's face this: if you can buy this beast, you probably also have a Lotus or a GT2 in your garage ;-) And also, it may (for example) on circuit be not that fast in the corners, how many times do you drive on circuit? :) If you wanna drive fast, there's the highway, cause it's mostly straight on, so.. If I had the money, I bought it, went to Spain on Holiday with it cruisin' :flag:
