German tuner Brabus is best known for their monster creations based on Mercedes Benz vehicle and why usually they do wonders under the bonnet, this time the tuning company unveiled the “iBusiness 2.0” based on the Mercedes Benz S Class and, according to Brabus, the first car with an integrated multimedia system based on the newly launched Apple iPad 2.
OK, so let’s see what is it that makes Brabus so proud of their latest product. First of all is the Apple iPad 2 integration into the on-board electronics system, giving rear passenger full access to all S-Class COMAND system functions, also allowing them to perform all business tasks. Also, passenger will do that in style, because the Brabus table has been custom tailored for the iBusiness 2.0, fitting perfectly into the backrest of the front seats, while the tabletop is covered in the same leather as the rest of the interior. The Brabus table also offers places to hold the both an iPad and a Bluetooth keyboard.
But, like we said before, the iPad not only offers passenger multimedia and business access, but, through the specially created system, it can access the car’s COMAND system, allowing passengers to control functions like telephone, navigation and radio. All this is done through a special Brabus application for iPad, iPad 2 and iPhone.
Beside the two iPads, the Brabus iBusiness 2.0 also features a 15.2 inch display covered with Alcantara leather and is integrated into the headliner cover. A 64 GB iPod comes with the car, being able to store more than 14,000 songs and the rear compartment has high-speed USB ports integrated.
According to Brabus, the iBusiness 2.0 system can be integrated in any S-Class models, from the entry-level S350 up to the high-performance S65 AMG. But the top-of-the-range model is the Brabus 800 “iBusiness 2.0” which is based on the Brabus 800 model, making the car “the world’s fastest office on wheels”. And they’re not kidding, because the car is powered by a bi-turbo V12 engine delivering 800 hp (588 kW) at 5,500 rpm and an electronically limited peak torque of 1,100 Nm (847 lb-ft) available from 2,100 rpm. Considering these numbers, you can expect the performance figures are simply amazing: 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.3 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (219 mph).
Beside these, the car comes packed with all the goodies Brabus offers for their products, such as scuff plates with illuminated logos, power-operated curtains for rear passengers’ privacy, individual rear power seats for maximum comfort and exclusive Brabys Yachting wood trim.
Brabus hasn’t unveiled any pricing details so far, but you can expect for the top of the line Brabus 800 “iBusiness 2.0” to be a part of the highly-exclusive cars club.
