BRABUS expands its portfolio by putting its spin on two iconic cars it’s never worked with before.
Most people who know about BRABUS are used to seeing the brand’s work in creating iconic, powerful, and stunning vehicles based on Mercedes-Benz models. BRABUS’s vehicles based on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV and S-Class sedan for example have both become icons within the automotive world for their seemingly limitless dedication to luxury, looks, and performance. However, BRABUS no longer stops at Mercedes-Benz when it comes to its cars, as the brand has announced two new cars that BRABUS has never based anything on before: the all-electric Porsche Taycan and the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.

The BRABUS 820, based for the first time on the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, is a car that gives the Porsche 911 the full BRABUS treatment, with luxury, looks, and performance that spare no expense and bring out the full potential of what a car can be. With carbon fiber aerodynamic components throughout the exterior and BRABUS Monoblock Z “Platinum Edition” wheels, the BRABUS 820 is both unmistakably a 911 and a BRABUS creation. Once you have a look at the BRABUS Masterpiece interior, you’ll see that it’s exactly that, with BRABUS’s signature quilting and embroidery everywhere you look, sat alongside more carbon fiber accents.
Then comes the performance. The 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine has its power brought up to an incredible 820 horsepower, and with 700 lb/ft of torque, the BRABUS 820 gets from 0-60 in a mere 2.5 seconds, and gets to an electronically limited top speed of 211 mph, making it not only the first 911-based BRABUS but one of the fastest BRABUS cars ever built.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S also gets a BRABUS makeover, with an aggressive body kit and 22-inch BRABUS Monoblock Z “Platinum Edition” wheels giving the car the classic BRABUS look. The BRABUS Masterpiece interior features BRABUS’s signature black and quilting, this time paired with lime green for an electrifying look that matches the car’s powertrain. BRABUS introduces a Ride Control Module in its Taycan, allowing you to modify the ride height of the BRABUS Taycan by 20 millimeters. Now that BRABUS’s lineup includes the Porsche Taycan and Porsche 911, it seems that there’s no limit to what a dream car can be.
