Yes, very impressive. Now enter longtime Mercedes aftermarket tuning firm Brabus
. Some of those E500s ended up with Brabus and they gave them some extra special attention. The result was the "6.5", a name attributed to the larger displacement of the V8 after being tuned even more. It was then able to produce 444hp, go from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph. And in a post originally from Carscoop, one of those "6.5" E500s is up for sale by Brabus themselves. Sadly, few details were given about the car, but the tuner did say that it has just 157 miles on the odometer (that's not a typo).
