It appears that the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series Coupe needs to step aside for the Brabus Bullit Coupe. The most powerful C-Class in the world from famed Mercedes tuner Brabus will be introduced to the world at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Based on a standard C-Class Coupe, the Brabus Bullit packs 800-hp and is powered by the same V12 powerplant found in the S-Class. Displacement has been increased from 5.5L to 6.3L with a pair of upgraded turbochargers. The real kicker is the fact that it can make up to 1047 lb-ft of torque, but has been electronically limited to just 811 lb-ft.

That means it hits 62-mph in merely 3.7 seconds. That’s half a second faster than the C63 AMG Black Series that sports a 6.2L V8 with 517-hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, which is incredible already.

The awesome Brabus Bullit comes at a price though, at around $594,000 (€449,820) based on today’s conversion rates. That means the fastest and most powerful C-Class Coupe in the world is definitely the most expensive C-Class in the world too.

Stay tuned for more from the Geneva Motor Show starting March 6th, and see the complete Geneva Motor Show preview here.
