A C-Class for half a million. That makes sense.

974 ft lbs......how will the car even hook up off the line, I'd imagine the rear would just go up in smoke with the mere thought of feathering the throttle.

Couple years back the boys from one of Brit mags (I forget which) took E-Class Brabus V12 onto autobahn and dialed as much as 190MPH on it.
Which, once you factor in its family car origin, must've been a mental fucking experience

Losing along a handful of 2-door sports cars whose owners looked as though somebody hit'em with a metal pipe upside the head

They come with Launch Mode, I reckon.
Increasing number of producers of cars packing hang-on-to-your-dear-nuts amounts of horsepower tend to do that these days.
