Does anyone know much about this w204?

Personally I think the wheels are too big but maybe that's needed to clear the brakes and the boot badges are terrible. Apart from that I really like the look of it, would be a great daily car.

It's a very rare car/spec but I'm not sure if that translates to what it's worth, too close to c63 money?

It actually looks like it’s a standard C350 with the D6 chip installed, a big B where the star should b and some non-Brabus alloys.

Mind you, they have painted the engine cover red so that’s got to be worth thousands...

Calipers look bigger than the standard 350 and looks to be 6 pot fronts? 2 piece split rims I thought I'd seen in a Brabus catalog.

Not a great MoT history, doesn't smack of a cared for car...

"I have owned this car for over 6 years and lived every minute of it." says a lot...

"I replaced all the suspension last year at a cost of nearly 4K, this is due to the Bilstein Brabus spec coilovers and I had all the arms etc on the front changed.
Front and rear discs and pads last year at a cost of £1200, fronts are 6 pots and rears 4 pot.

All the major parts that at some stage fail have been replaced, oil cooler, intercooler seals, etc."

Brakes are likely straight off a C63.

Not sure about the power claims, torque seems very high, possibly meant NM. I know 400hp is achievable with on the 642 V6 with bolt on mods,

Honestly why would anyone want this when you can buy a perfectly good C63 for the same money? :dk:

And an extra £2000 for that NI number plate - yeah right!

Strong whiff of cattle about that ad, I think. 942 lb ft of torque? Bollocks; that's over 50% more than an E55K, and would make the gearbox a consumable item. In fact, it's over 50% more torque than a 2013 E 63 AMG 'S' too.

The truth is: "The Brabus D6S Power Diesel engine produces 313hp of power and a peak torque of 690Nm, on tap from a low 1,600rpm. Powered by this engine the coupe sprints from rest to 100km/h in just 5.9 seconds and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. (27 Nov 2012)".

"Q-Car"? Just look at it... The wheels are too big, too.

"Phenominal (sic) performance"? A W210 E55 would beat it off the line, and a C63 would eat it for breakfast without even trying...

Other than that though, you love it? 😀

There is no way that the car is producing the level of torque claimed. 750nm would be maximum but pushing it!

The paint on the front bumper is a different shade to the rest of the car. Maybe a PPF but looks like hammerite.
