2019 Brabus Shadow 800

The BRABUS SHADOW 800 will be presented at the Top Marques Monaco 2019 together with the latest exclusive boat from BRABUS, which also serves as inspiration for the exterior color scheme of the limited-edition model. The BRABUS 500 “Shadow OPS” Limited Edition “1 of 28” is a recreational watercraft with a top speed in excess of 50 knots (92.6 km/h/57.5 mph), which is produced in cooperation with Finnish manufacturer Axopar Boats. Like this agile 30-foot boat, the new supercar sports a special ‘Gunmetal Gray’ paint finish. For contrast, key WIDESTAR components such as the fender flares and the fasciae at the front and rear are painted a glossy black.

Further important design elements on the BRABUS SHADOW 800 – as on the boat as well – are carefully placed BRABUS naked-carbon elements such as the radiator grille surround, the hood scoop and the “Power Beams” auxiliary LED light unit on the roof. Additional carbon elements are found on the rear end, such as the side sections of the BRABUS roof wing and the center section of the spare wheel cover with BRABUS logo. The thrilling looks of this model are also decisively characterized by the 23-inch glossy black BRABUS Monoblock F “BLACK PLATINUM Special Edition” forged wheels with size 305/35 R 23 tires. The BRABUS SHADOW 800 captivates in the interior with individual extravagance representing the highest quality of workmanship as well: The exclusive BRABUS fine leather interior of this supercar sports an attractive combination of black, light gray and red leather.

A prime example of the BRABUS upholsterers’ quality of work is the center section of each seat. The ‘Light Shadow Gray’ leather there features square quilting applied with pinpoint precision. In concert with the perforations and the red backing underneath, this creates a discrete appearance. The BRABUS elements for the inner surfaces of the A-pillars are made of Alcantara, which is elaborately finished with that same pattern applied with extreme precision. Embossed BRABUS logotypes and the red embroidered BRABUS logos on the head restraints document the noble lineage of this supercar. The “1 of 10” label of the BRABUS SHADOW 800 Limited Edition is integrated into the dashboard-mounted grab handle for the front passenger of this supercar. Select naked-carbon elements in the interior represent the sporty touch of this high-end automobile. In addition to the unusual looks, this BRABUS limited-edition supercar delivers high performance in its purest form. The BRABUS 800 V8 twin-turbo engine with a displacement of 3,982 cc (243 cu in) is fitted with two BRABUS high-performance turbochargers with larger compressor unit and modified core assembly with reinforced axial bearing.

They produce a maximum boost pressure of 1.6 bar. The engine produces a peak output of 588 kW / 800 hp (789 bhp) at 6,600 rpm and a peak torque of 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) at 3,600 rpm, propelling the BRABUS SHADOW 800 from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.1 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 240 km/h. Of course, BRABUS also backs this new performance upgrade with the three-year or 100,000-kilometer / 62,000-mile BRABUS Tuning Warranty® (see BRABUS Tuning Warranty Terms and Conditions, updated July 2013). The BRABUS stainless sport exhaust optimizes the power delivery and thanks to integrated actively controlled flaps offers a wide range of exhaust notes from a throaty V8 sound in ‘Sport’ mode to a subtle whisper in “Coming Home” mode. This exhaust system is also a visual treat with its two black chromed exhaust tips exiting on the left and right in front of the rear wheels.
