Brabus iBusiness 2.0: The Best of Mercedes and Apple

At a time when distracted driving is reaching new levels of, well, danger and annoyance, German tuner Brabus has gone and given the Apple treatment to a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The Brabus iBusiness 2.0 is the tuner's second version of their Apple office on wheels, offering all of Steve Job's latest. The updated car features a multimedia system based on the new iPad2, with the tablet controlling in-house entertainment and the high-speed internet connection.

There's also a new application that integrates the iPad2 into the car's electronic systems and enables it to control the S-Class's COMAND system from the rear seats. The iPads are connected to a Mini Mac via a Wi-Fi network, which is the system's main computer. Music is played from a 64GB iPod touch and a digital television signal is received through DVBT. Music can be heard through either the car's sound system or by Sennheiser Noise Gard headphones. The "base" car is the tuner's own Brabus 800, with its twelve-cylinder, twin-turbo engine that produces 800 hp.

It goes from 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 219 mph. The car also has two individual rear power seats and upgraded materials throughout the interior.
