Remember the Brabus iBusiness 3D Viano we showed you a couple of weeks go? Well, if you’re not into vans so much – and want to travel a bit faster – but still consider yourself to be an avid Apple fan, then Brabus will still cater for your needs. Meet the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Brabus 800 iBusiness 2.0.

It features much the same ‘modern-office’ setting as the iBusiness 3D Viano and its array of iPad and iPod screens, but this time the in-car multimedia interface has been setup to incorporate the Apple iPad 2 – a first for a car, as far as we know.

There’s also plenty of leather and wood-finish trimming used throughout the interior, including leather-wrapped electronically-adjustable rear recliners.

A feature that simply tops off this business class luxury land yacht though is the video conference function. Conference calls can be made while on the go thanks to the multimedia system which supports video calls through the use of various integrated in-car cameras.

To top it off, the Brabus 800 iBusiness 2.0 is also a ferociously fast mode of transport. It features an AMG twin-turbo V12 engine that now outputs 597kW of power and 1420Nm of torque thanks to Brabus tuning.

To put that into perspective, a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI outputs 407Nm of torque, this Brabus 800 offers over a thousand more Newton metres.

Brabus says the 800 iBusiness will get from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 350km/h. Not bad for a large luxury sedan, astonishing for a mobile modern office.
