High-performance German tuning house Brabus was always going to get stuck into the 2010 E-Class Coupe; it was just a question of when. Well, that day has come, and the boys from Bottrop sure know how to satisfy.

Encompassing updates of both the mechanical and aesthetic kind, the Brabus-tuned E-Class Coupe E500 develops 345kW and a neck-snapping 615Nm of torque.

To achieve those riotous results, Brabus increased the 5.5 litre V8's capacity to 6.1 litres, leading to a 0-100km/h sprint of just 4.7 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 315km/h.

Brabus also offers a range of suspension upgrades for the E-Class Coupe, which you'll probably want to include if you're going to be screaming along at upwards of 300km/h. Options include a regular lowered setup, through to a height-adjustable coilover sports suspension package.

The famous tuning house can also set you up with a high-performance brake package, featuring six-piston aluminium fixed calipers and 360mm vented and cross-drilled discs up front, with four-piston examples out back.

Brabus has, this time around, kept the styling updates surprisingly subtle, making simple updates to the bumpers and side skirts.

At each corner sits a lightweight alloy wheel, available in sizes ranging from 17 to 20 inches.

Pulling all that extra power and style comes at a premium, though, with the upgrades coming in at about US$40,000 - not exactly pocket change, and in fact pretty close to what US buyers will pay for an entry-level E-Class Coupe.
